Vitality Unleashed Psychology provides dietitian services for people experiencing binge eating issues and Binge Eating Disorder
What is Binge Eating Disorder?
Binge Eating Disorder is a serious psychological condition that is characterised by recurrent episodes of an individual consuming an amount of food that is distinctly larger than what most people would consume in a similar period of time and under similar circumstances. A person who experiences Binge Eating Disorder will typically eat quite rapidly, eat until they feel uncomfortably full, eat large amounts of food even when they’re not hungry and may also eat in secrecy. It is common for these individuals living with Binge Eating Disorder to experience a sense of lack of control around food. These episodes are usually associated with negative feelings including feeling guilty, depressed or disgusted towards themselves.

Learn about some of the other common eating disorders below:
Bulimia Nervosa is the recurrent binge-eating episodes (the intake of abnormally large amounts of food in a short period of time), which is then immediately followed by self-induced vomiting, fasting, over-exercising and/or the misuse of laxatives, enemas or diuretics so to prevent that food intake converting to weight gain, and to clear oneself of the guilt from consuming the food.
Orthorexia is an obsession with eating food that is ‘pure’; their focus is on the quality of the food consumed to an excessive degree, rather than the quantity, beyond that of ‘clean eating’.
Muscle Dysmorphia is a subtype of Body Dysmorphic Disorder, and is the person’s perception of themselves as being less muscular and smaller than what they actually are and causes significant distress.
Anorexia Nervosa is an excessive fear of gaining weight, with preoccupation with body image, obsessive focus on reducing food intake and losing weight, and often includes compensatory behaviours such as excessive exercise, purging or laxative use. A Dietitian can help the individual to restore weight and reverse some of the physical damage caused by the disorder.
