How to Escape the Vicious Circle of Binge Eating!

Binge eating is one of the most common eating disorders in Germany. The proportion of people who suffer from binge eating is around 6 percent. Women are affected more often than men. However, it must be noted that the number of unreported cases will be significantly higher for men, since men seek help less often than women when binge eating. “Binge” comes from the English and means something like “revelry”. In this article we explain how this disorder develops, what consequences binge eating can have for you and what you can do to break the vicious cycle of binge eating.

The chances of recovery from binge eating are quite high. About half of all patients who have undergone cognitive behavioral therapy live symptom-free afterwards.

Binge eating is often accompanied by mental illness .

Depression, anxiety disorders, stress and sleep problems can correlate with the disease. Patients who suffer from binge eating usually have a high BMI value, and many are even obese. This excess weight can subsequently lead to other diseases. Like high blood pressure and a heart attack. Many patients also develop type 2 diabetes. Since excess weight affects the bones, joint problems often occur. Obese patients also have an increased risk of developing cancer such as breast cancer, esophageal cancer or kidney cancer.
