BINGE EATING DISORDER TREATMENT
Do you binge when you’re stressed or depressed? Do you keep eating when full and are unable to stop? Do you eat normally with others, but binge when alone? Do you feel out-of-control, helpless, ashamed, guilty, and frustrated about your binging? Does your shame prevent you from talking about your relationship with food and seeking help? It shouldn’t. You are not alone: Binge Eating Disorder (BED) affects 6-8 million Americans, but, sadly, it is often unrecognized, misdiagnosed, or misunderstood by professionals, and less than half receive treatment.
We can help you. Using metabolic testing and body composition analysis, our nutritionists (who have expertise in BED) will give you a plan and work with you to help you to take back control of your life and health.
Many with BED often binge at night and restrict during the day. This under/over eating pattern often slows the metabolism, and when the body is not burning enough calories it will usually gain weight. Increasing caloric intake earlier in the day helps increase the metabolism. Body Composition Analysis also helps our nutritionists to tailor an eating plan to meet your body’s needs based on the data. We will not simply hand you another diet, we will guide you to become the agent of your own recovery. We will show you what your body needs by revealing when your body is malnourished and when it is beginning to thrive. (See our short video for a visual representation of this.)
Under the right guidance, Binge Eating Disorder can be overcome. We have helped many overcome it, and we can help you. Please reach out to us to set up an appointment. Life is too short and precious to keep suffering from BED, it is too hard on your emotions and health.
Here are some warning signs to consider if you suspect you or someone you know may be struggling with the disorder:

- Feeling that the eating behavior is out of control

- Experiencing depression and anxiety
