Binge Eating Disorder
Eating out of control? Distressed about eating patterns?
Binge eating is when you eat an extremely large amount of food in a short amount of time and feel that you can’t control what or how much you are eating. Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in the United States. About half of those with BED have a history of depression and many who suffer with BED may experience symptoms of anxiety or physical or emotional distress. We at AYAM recognize that there are often feelings associated with binging that may seem contradictory such as a sense of calmness but also that of shame or self-anger.
At AYAM, we are experts who have had specialized training and can medically evaluate and coordinate the care that’s needed to move forward!
