Anorexia Disorder
Binge eating disorder (BED) is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating without subsequent purging episodes. 25% of college-aged women engage in bingeing and purging as a weight-management technique. Ask yourself the following questions. The more “yes” answers, the more likely it is that you have binge eating disorder.
Do you feel out of control when you’re eating?
Do you think about food all the time?
Do you eat in secret?
Do you eat until you feel sick?
Do you eat to escape from worries, relieve stress, or to comfort yourself?
Do you feel disgusted or ashamed after eating?
Do you feel powerless to stop eating, even though you want to?
Our wonderful contact Mrs. Rich who answered all of our questions making this whole thing possible.
