Binge Eating Disorder (BED) Treatment in Seattle

Binge eating disorder (BED) is one of the newest eating disorders recognized as a formal eating disorder diagnosis. It is defined as a loss of control and urgency around food during a binge, that is often followed by feelings of distress and shame. 

Binge eating is not usually coupled with compensatory behaviors, such as over exercising or purging.

Binge eating disorder is characterized by the following behaviors:

Recurrent episodes of binge eating defined as:

  • Eating an amount of food that is definitely larger than most people would consider a normal portion within a 2 hour period.
  • A sense of lack of control over eating.

Binge eating episodes are associated with three or more of the following:

  • Eating rapidly.
  • Eating until uncomfortably full.
  • Eating large amounts when not physically hungry.
  • Intense feelings of disgust, guilt or shame after overeating.
  • Eating in isolation due to feeling embarrassed by how much one is eating.
