Thanks to Ruth Micallef for including me in this article.
I love Ruth’s analogy of “Binge Eating Disorder as an unhelpful superhero, who we manifest within ourselves when we have no idea how else to cope. It swoops in when times get tough or traumas are triggered, helping us “self-soothe” and “detach” with food and binging.”
I’m also really pleased to see outlets like Reader’s Digest discussing eating disorders.

Note: I don’t entirely agree with the opening of the article which seems to suggest that binge eating is the cause of ‘obesity’. In some cases binge eating can lead to weight gain, but there are many factors that determine someone’s body weight.
