Binge Eating Disorder

Binge Eating Disorder (often referred to as BED) shares some of the characteristics of Bulimia but the essential difference is that there is no purging following a binge.

While BED does not have the same physical symptoms as Anorexia or Bulimia it is still a serious eating disorder that can cause intense distress.

Binges are usually triggered by intense emotions and distress, and you may feel unable to cope therefore food becomes a comfort.
