Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is characterized by frequent episodes of eating large quantities of food over short periods, often to the point of feeling ill. Unlike other eating disorders, BED is not associated with regular use of compensatory measures like purging. Berry Street's tailored care aims to understand and address the underlying triggers of binge eating, fostering a healthier relationship with food.
Recognizing the signs and symptoms of BED is vital for timely intervention. Working with a Berry Street dietitian can address concerns such as:
Consuming unusually large amounts of food in a short time
Feeling out of control with food
Eating more quickly than usual
Eating until feeling uncomfortably full
Feeling embarrassed, guilty, or disgusted about eating
Guided nutrition support can be transformative in overcoming BED and rediscovering joy in eating.
BED often results from a complex combination of genetic, psychological, and environmental factors. Personalized nutrition therapy can help uncover these underlying triggers and provide strategies to manage and overcome binge eating.
Unmanaged BED can lead to serious health risks, including cardiovascular disease, Type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and more. Berry Street's personalized nutritional therapy focuses on minimizing these risks, nurturing both physical and emotional well-being.
