Binge Eating Help
Do you need binge eating help? Do you know someone who needs help?
Many people eat in response to negative emotions such as boredom, sadness or anger.
Sometimes this behaviour stops after a short time. But, when this becomes a pattern leading to drastic weightloss or obesity, it's known as binge eating disorder.
It's estimated that 10 percent of people who're obese and try to lose weight through commercial weightloss programs and diets have binge eating disorder.
During a binge eating episode, people eat large amounts of food and feel they cannot help how much they are eating. They feel out of control.
Those with the most severe binge eating problems are also likely to have symptoms of depression and low self esteem.
They often feel like they are alone in battling this problem. It's important to know that there is help available.
If you think you might have binge eating disorder or if you know someone with this problem, seek help from a qualifed health professional such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, dietician or clinical social worker.
Diets or prescription weightloss pills may help with your weightloss, but they'll only be temporary solutions unless you address the underlying psychological or emotional triggers.
