When Malnutrition Lives in a Larger Body: Effectively and Compassionately Treating Binge Eating Disorder

Eating Disorder

Free 1 CPE!

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder in the United States – it is more prevalent than Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa combined. In a world desperately afraid of fat with billions of dollars invested in the diet/weight-loss industry, and a public health emphasis on the “obesity crisis”, BED has only been formally recognized since 2013.

Lack of understanding of BED and weight-biased interventions lead to under-diagnosis and limited access to appropriate care. Treating individuals who struggle with binge eating with compassion and expertise includes awareness of ways that our social norms regarding weight bias keep our patients from healing. Join Amanda Mellowspring, MS,RD/N,CEDRD-S who will introduce Binge Eating Disorder and cover effective treatment strategies focusing on behavior rather than weight.
