Sacramento Binge Eating Disorder Treatment: The Whole Person Approach


People need to eat to satisfy their appetite and meet their nutritional needs. Unfortunately, some people consistently eat more than what their body actually requires or “binge eat”. UTSanDiego.com writer Errin Hutkin reports that binge eating has been recently included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Hutkin spoke to a San Diego-based dietician, who explains that binge eating is different from another eating disorder, bulimia. While in both cases, those who are afflicted tend to consume more-than-normal quantities of food, compulsive eaters don’t purge or take laxatives. The dietician stresses that the condition is often triggered by emotional stress. Possible long-term effects of binge eating are diabetes, heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

With Sacramento’s thriving culinary scene teeming with mouthwatering delights, it’s unsurprising for some locals to overeat from time to time.
