Almost everyone overeats from time to time. But if overeating is a regular and uncontrollable habit, you may be suffering from binge eating disorder.
Binge eating is using food to cope with stress and other negative emotions, but this compulsive overeating just makes you feel worse. Binge eating disorder is more common than bulimia and anorexia and affects a significant number of men as well as women.
Compulsive overeating or binge eating can have a negative impact on a person both emotionally and physically. The earlier the problem is detected the better and at Clinical Partners we have a team of specialists who will provide binge eating disorder help to overcome this illness.
It can be difficult to overcome binge eating and food addiction. Unlike other addictions, your "drug" is necessary for survival, so you don't have the option of avoiding it. Instead, you must develop a healthier relationship with food—a relationship that's based on meeting your nutritional needs, not your emotional ones.
