The Most Common Eating Disorder

More than 7 million Americans struggle with binge eating disorder (BED), according to a recent Harvard-based study, yet few of us know much about the condition. Cynthia Bulik, PhD, director of the University of North Carolina Eating Disorders Program and the author of a new book, Crave: Why You Binge Eat and How to Stop, helps shed light on the problem.

So constantly overeating is really called a binge and it is a disorder. Who knew? I thought I just liked food and hated exercise. I personally think Americans make every vice into a disease. Yet, if labeling your eating habits has a disorder allows you to get help and make changes in ones life; then I believe the label is helpful.
