Tired of the pain.
- Apr 8, 2020
Thanks for sharing the article. I see what the author is getting at with Prader-Willi syndrome being "the one true binge eating disorder", but... I don't really agree with that right now. I do think they made a really good point about BED vs bulimia, and that most cases of "binge eating" do involve heavy compensation.There's really not
such a thing as "eating too much"
it's what our bodies do to survive
The message that there is, pushes people to restrict more.
Shame is a product of an abusive fatphobic culture, not a property of any of the things you nourished yourself with.
After any kind of starvation, the body needs extra energy (calories) to repair tissue damage, often for much longer than the starvation lasted - Minnesota starvation experiments showed this.
Second of two parts looking at binge eating disorder BED and its inclusion as a standalone eating disorder in the DSM-5 and what this means for those sure that bingeing causes BED.edinstitute.org
I want to say more, but to be honest trying to read the article wore me out on the topic. It was difficult to focus on - not your fault, it's because it's academic and very formal. I'll try to remember to get back to you on this if I can think of anything more to say.
