Binge-eating disorder (BED) is a prevalent eating disorder characterized by recurrent binge-eating episodes, marked levels of distress, and lack of regular weight-related compensatory behaviors. BED is strongly associated with broader psychological impairment, cardiometabolic conditions, and obesity. Despite the significant morbidity associated with BED, this psychiatric condition is often undetected and untreated.
