Why Join a Treatment Group for Binge Eating Disorders?
Everyone tends to overeat from time to time. However, when you feel out of control when you eat, are ashamed by how much you eat or feel guilty about your eating patterns, you may have binge eating disorder.
A binge eating disorder is the most common eating disorder in the United States, affecting around 3.5 percent of women and 2 percent of men. This is a serious disorder in which you frequently consume unusually large amounts of food in a short period of time, often accompanied with a sense of losing control.
Some of the common behavioral and emotional symptoms of a binge eating disorder include:
- Feeling uncomfortable or fearful of eating around others
- Feeling depressed, disgusted, ashamed, guilty or upset about your eating
- Embarrassment over eating habits to the extent that you hide them by eating alone
- Eating even when you’re full or not hungry
- Frequently dieting or practicing fad diets, possibly without weight loss
- Hiding food from others
- Expressing concern with your weight and body shape
- Eating rapidly during binge episodes in which you eat until you’re uncomfortably full
