When is Overeating a Disorder?

This video clip from an NBC news report explains compulsive overeating and how it’s commonly misunderstood as an eating disorder. Often symptoms are treated, but compulsive overeating is often not recognized as a disorder.

Not all overeaters have a compulsive overeating disorder…and breaking free from it takes more than just “dieting” or other such recommendations from doctors that don’t fully acknowledge the depths of the struggles of the disorder.

If you feel that this may be an issue for you, I suggest taking caution around labeling yourself as someone with a “disorder” or “addiction”…it can be a double-edged sword. It’s a HUGE step to admit you have a problem, because then you can take action to overcome it. The caution is around using the label to stay stuck. See my article about why labeling can keep you stuck.
