How to Treat Binge Eating Disorder
Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include:
In cognitive-behavioral therapy , a mental health professional will teach you how to keep track of your eating and change your unhealthy eating habits. This may involve learning how to respond to tough situations and feel better about your body shape and weight.
In interpersonal psychotherapy, a counselor will help you look at your personal relationships and make changes in areas that are negatively affecting your life.
Certain antidepressant medications may be beneficial for some people with binge eating disorder.
