What is a Binge Eating Disorder?

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is when an individual recurrently consumes larger than normal amounts of food within a short period of time (e.g. less than 2 hours), often when not physically hungry. If these episodes are associated with feelings of lack of control, embarrassment, feeling uncomfortably full, and subsequent distress/guilt resulting from having overeaten, then it is likely that an individual has a BED.

Unlike other eating disorders such as bulimia nervosa, BED is not associated with inappropriate compensatory behaviors such as purging (e.g. vomiting, use of laxatives, etc.). For this reason, BED can also frequently co-occur with cases of obesity.

Unlike other eating disorders such as bulimia nervosa, BED is not associated with inappropriate compensatory behaviors such as purging (e.g. vomiting, use of laxatives, etc.). For this reason, BED can also frequently co-occur with cases of obesity.

What Causes Binge Eating Disorders?

As with all eating disorders, the reasons why people develop BED are varied and complex. While they depend upon an individual’s life-experiences, emotional make-up and genetic predisposition, the contributory factors can broadly be broken down into three categories.

Biological

For many reasons, our hormonal system can become imbalanced and begin to send improper messages about when and when not to eat, although not the only cause of a BED, imbalances such as these are thought to play a role in the development of BED.

From an evolutionary perspective, our supply of food would not have always been as abundant as it is today, making more prolonged periods of fasting and feasting a natural process. Unfortunately, a combination of our instinctual tendency to make the most of available food and the current abundance of food (particularly food that is highly processed, refined, and less satiating) can sometimes have inevitable consequences.

Psychological

There are strong correlations between issues pertaining to depression, impulse control and expression of feelings with BED. These will often be tied into the development of BED and can be linked to a variety of the factors mentioned above and below. In any case, they should be identified and approached when dealing with BED.

Social

Throughout our lives, we can develop inappropriate associations with food that also contribute to BED by means of social and cultural factors. For instance, if a person begins to turn to food for comfort or as a mechanism to deal with stress; it can begin to provide the foundation for maladaptive binge eating behavior. When combined with obesity (and the common feelings of bodily dissatisfaction or criticism from others that can follow), such types of ‘emotional eating’ as a reaction to distress can lead to a BED.

Treatment of Binge Eating Disorders?

Depending on an individual’s personal circumstance, a range of treatments are available for those with BED.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Binge Eating Disorder (CBT-BED)

This involves working with a qualified practitioner to recognize, challenge and improve dysfunctional or maladaptive binge-eating behaviors. It can include educational aspects surrounding food and healthy weight loss topics, but will also help a patient to manage their emotions in relation to food.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)

This focuses more specifically on relationship issues that can lead to BED. Originally developed to deal with depression, it helps people to better communicate and create healthier relationships with those around them; in doing so it can promote appropriate mechanisms to help combat compulsive eating behavior. It usually involves 16–20 hour-long one-to-one treatment sessions over 4 to 5 months.

Modified Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

This primarily focuses on enhancing an individual’s emotion regulation skills, awareness, and self-acceptance. It is a combination of CBT and mindfulness meditation techniques and typically involves up to 20 group and/or individual sessions lasting 2 hours once a week.

OTHER ISSUES

When BED co-occurs with obesity, there is a debate as to whether it is better to tackle the physical issues relating to obesity (i.e. weight loss) or the psychological issues relating to BED behavior first. Research has found that compared with behavioral weight loss treatments, both IPT and self-help-based CBT were more effective in creating remission from binge eating behavior in obese patients, 2 years after treatment.

    I want to thank the clinic for their timely help when my husband was really struggling with addiction. We realised that it was not only him who needed counseling but it was the whole family which needed to change their behaviour towards him. Thanks MEETING MATTERS Clinic.

    We visited MEETING MATTERS Clinic for our teen age son. He had serious mood issues and locking up into isolation. Mr. Naushad has really been helpful as he seems to understand the youngsters’ perspective. He also trained us, the family members how to treat our son. I’ll strongly recommend this clinic to others. They have a good system and staff is very helpful and trained.
