Finding Your Motivation for Binge Eating Disorder Recovery

Anorexia and bulimia have always been the two heavy hitters in the world of eating disorders.

In fact, Binge eating disorder (BED) was not officially recognized as a legitimate diagnosis until the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was published in 2013.

Prior to that time, BED was placed in the category of Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS).  This delayed recognition still proves stigmatizing and problematic for many of those we see in residential care.
