Life Works - the leading specialist in binge eating and overeating treatment
Binge eating and overeating are serious medical conditions which manifest in a compulsive, out-of-control relationship to food. A person who binge eats turns to food to deal with stress and other uncomfortable emotions. As a result, these emotions build up and often become worse, spiralling into guilt, depression, and low self-esteem. This then leads to more emotional eating.
Because the binge eater is unable to properly manage food intake, the physical body becomes vulnerable to life-altering health issues. These include obesity, depression and type II diabetes.
If you are ready to stop the guilt and depression of binge eating, call Life Works at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
Signs and Symptoms of Binge Eating
The most common symptom of binge eating is regularly eating very large amounts of food, regardless of whether or not you are hungry. For most binge eaters, overeaters and emotional eaters, eating is a coping mechanism. They experience a negative thought or emotion, then eat as a way of dealing wiht it. This makes them feel powerless and guilty. Binge eating is directly tied to emotions. Some binge eaters eat when they are sad, angry or experiencing any other type of strong emotion, hence the term emotional eater. In that way, the condition is similar to alcohol addiction. Binge eaters are also likely to hide their eating disorder from friends and family. Binge eaters will avoid eating in front of people and then secretly binge in private. This leads to poor body image. Many binge eaters feel embarrassed and ashamed of their appearance and are always finding flaws with themselves. If you recognise any of these symptoms in yourself or a loved one, you can call Life Works at 0800 081 0700 or fill out our contact form.
