Eating disorder treatment and support - Binge eating disorder treatment

Exploring Binge Eating Disorder

Exploring the idea of you or a loved one having an eating disorder can be a daunting process. However, at the Body Image Treatment Clinic, we are here to support you on your recovery journey.

What is binge eating disorder?

Binge eating disorder is an eating disorder which causes people to eat a large amount of food uncontrollably (also known as binge eating), in a short period of time usually followed by feels of shame and guilt. For some periods of food restriction follow. However, binge eating disorder is not simply about food and weight. It may have occurred to navigate challenging life events or cope with difficult emotions and now behaviours have become ritualistic and feel unavoidable.

Recovery is always possible

If the above sounds familiar, we invite you to explore some of the common behaviours we see in our clients who are experiencing binge eating disorder. You may wish to explore them with the support of a loved one, and know we are here if you require further support.

  • Have you experienced a change in weight, both up and down?
  • Do you feel out of control when eating, often eating lots in a short period of time?
  • Do you eat quickly and feel unable to remember eating?
  • Do you prefer to eat alone to avoid guilt and shame around the food you’re eating?
  • Do you try to restrict your food intake for a long time, and then feel out of control when you do eat?
  • Do you miss or skip meals intentionally, rather than forget?
  • Have you noticed greater awareness and upset around the way your body appears?
  • Have you seen your friends less or isolating yourself more in general?
  • Has it felt difficult to concentrate on conversations?
  • Has your mood been low more often or noticed changes in your mood?
  • Have you been experiencing stomach-ache, constipation or bloating?
  • Has your sleep pattern been disrupted causing fatigue and tiredness?
