Eating Disorder refers to a category of specific disorders that include dysfunctional eating patterns characterized by either restriction or over-eating. Two types of eating disorders that we treat at CBTDenver are Bulimia and Binge Eating are described below.
Binge-Eating Disorder (BED):
Binge-Eating Disorder is characterized by binge eating without purging behavior. Other features of BED include lack of control over eating and significant distress and/or guilt following overeating.
Bulimia is characterized by binging (excessive intake of food within a short period of time) and purging. Purging may occur through vomiting, excessive exercise, laxative use or other means.
