Macronutrient Ratios

The Effects of Macronutrient Intake on Binge Eating and Satiety in Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder

Photo Credit: greggavedon.com – Creative Commons Research shows that diets that are high in protein may reduce the frequency of binge eating episodes in individuals with Bulimia Nervosa (BN) or Binge Eating Disorder (BED). Eighteen women with Bulimia Nervosa or Binge Eating Disorder participated in a five-week study to determine if macronutrient ratio affected the frequency of binge-eating episodes. The study was completed in two phases, one phase was a high-protein phase, one phase was a high-carbohydrate phase; both phases were separated with a one-week “washout” phase. Each participant was provided with a two-week supply of high-protein supplementation, and a two-week supply of high-carbohydrate supplementation. The 280-calorie high-protein supplement contained 75.47% protein, 10.31% carbohydrates, and 14.23% fat; the 280-calorie high-carbohydrate ...
Meditation and Binge Eating Disorder

Meditation-Based Intervention for Binge Eating Disorder (BED)

Photo Used Under a Creative Commons License via AlicePopkorn Is it possible that individuals with Binge Eating Disorder could gain a greater sense of control over eating by giving up a certain amount of conscious control? It’s quite the paradox, really. A study completed at the University of Indiana examined this very idea. The study explored the use of meditation-based intervention for Binge Eating Disorder. The six-week study introduced 18 obese women to standard and eating-specific mindfulness meditation. After completing the study, episodes of binge-eating decreased from 4.02 episodes per week, to 1.57 episodes per week. Additionally, the women’s scores on the Binge Eating Scale (BES), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) and the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) decreased significantly; anxiety ...

Characteristics of Binge Eating

Binge eating is mostly associated with Bulimia but it is also a characteristic of other eating disorders such as Bulimarexia and Binge Eating Disorder.  There are two definable types of binge’s, objective and subjective.  Binge eating has often been associated with purging but not all binges are followed by a purge.  It should be noted that vomiting is not the only means of purging;  excessive exercising and the use of diet pills, diuretics, and laxatives are other methods of purging.  Some may just use one of these methods and others use a combination of these. Objective and Subjective Binge Eating An objective binge consists of  as much as 20,000 calories in one episode (which may last from minutes to  many ...
Refeeding, A Step at a Time

Eating Disorder as Addiction

Refeeding, A Step at a Time Re-feeding: What is Normal?  The central and most difficult issue to be dealt with in the treatment of serious eating disorders is the issue of re-feeding and/or the establishment of a healthy relationship with food. The degree to which the patient can do this determines her success in conquering her disorder. The problem is that “normal” eating is a very complicated phenomenon, let alone the intricacies of re-feeding. This is one of the reasons that the “cure” rate for eating disorders is so low. In some ways, it is more difficult to treat a severe eating disorder than it is to treat alcoholism or drug addiction. There is no such thing as cold turkey ...
ADHD and eating disorders

ADHD and Incidence of Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders Common In ADHD Girls: Compulsive Behavior Tied To Body Image Problems Girls with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are more likely to have an eating disorder, a new study said. “Adolescent girls with ADHD frequently develop body-image dissatisfaction and may go through repeating cycles of binge eating and purging behaviors that are common in bulimia nervosa,” said University of Virginia psychologist Amori Yee Mikami. ADHD is thought to be three times more common in boys than girls, so researchers are still learning its long-term effects on girls. But eating disorders are 10 times more common in girls. “Our finding suggests that girls may develop a broader range of problems in adolescence than their male counterparts,” Mikami said. She said ...
