What is binge eating disorder?

Binge eating disorder is a diagnosable eating disorder and it is more common than its counterparts, anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, combined.   People who meet diagnostic criteria for BED experience frequent and reoccurent episodes of binge eating.  To meet criteria for a diagnosis of BED, an episode of binge eating must include both of the following and these episodes must occur at least once per week for three months or more.

Eating, in a discrete period of time (e.g., within any 2-hour period), an amount of food that is definitely larger than most people would eat in a similar period of time under similar circumstances

The sense of lack of control over eating during the episode (e.g., a feeling that one cannot stop eating or control what or how much one is eating)
