Binge Eating Disorder Therapy

Binge eating is an eating disorder where you regularly eat large amounts of food quickly. The binge eating is often planned and may involve specific foods you've selected especially for binging on.

It's different from bulimia where you throw up the food after eating. With binge eating disorder you just overeat, but to an unhealthy extent and often triggered by psychological issues. Therapy can treat this.
