BE Deserving. You are worthy.
More than 3 million people and their families suffer from Binge Eating Disorder (BED). An eating disorder is not about making bad choices, it is about mental illness and physical imbalances. The good news is: Proven therapies exist and recovery is possible.
At EDCare, we are committed to giving our patients the tools they need to regain control of their lives and sustain long-term success. Our unique approach to evidence-based care is highly personalized and helps patients regain health through CAMSA®: Connection, Acceptance, Mindfulness, a Sense of Self, and Action – the foundations of true empowerment.
Binge Eating Disorder vs. overeating… what’s the difference?
People who have BED have repeated episodes of consuming large quantities of food, followed by distress, guilt, and shame.
- Recurring episodes of uncontrollable eating
- Consumption of abnormally large quantities of food, faster than normal
- Eating large quantities until uncomfortably full, even when not hungry
- Feeling depressed, guilty, or disgusted with oneself after overeating
- Eating in isolation because of embarrassment
- Impact on work, life, and relationships – further isolating the individual
