Binge eating eating disorder treatment



The consumption of food is obviously essential for the human race’s survival - but our relationship with it can be quite complicated.

As with bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder - or BED - centres around the uncontrolled ingestion of large amounts of food in a short period of time.

These binges are often regarded as a reaction to problems such as ongoing stress. Consumption of food is a way to boost the brain’s reward circuitry and increase dopamine levels. Naturally, one of the results of this disorder can be weight gain. But there can be many underlying factors behind it - mental or genetic problems and issues around the correct diet. Therefore, as with all cases, we will look at each client individually and holistically, to discover the root cause and make you better.

And rest assured, most will make a full recovery and learn to develop a healthy relationship with food for the rest of their lives.

Binge eating is about someone developing a problematic and unhealthy relationship with food which they are unable to control. And it can have serious effects on one’s health. As we have seen during the pandemic, with obesity comes vulnerability - to diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnoea and much more. Mentally, we often see low self-esteem associated with BED alongside anxiety and depression. This obviously has a big effect on self-worth and quality of life for both the sufferer and their loved ones. The good news is it it is relatively common and eminently treatable.


  • Regularly eating more food than most would do in a single sitting
  • Having binge eating episodes at least once a week for three months or more
  • Feeling out of control while you’re eating
  • Eating a lot - even when you’re not hungry
  • Eating alone, particularly because you’re embarrassed about how much you’re eating
  • Eating really fast or past the point of feeling full
