Binge eating help: People who binge-eat but can't put on weight

Recently, A Current Affair interviewed BodyMatters’ Managing Director Sarah McMahon about binge eating disorder help and people who binge eat but can’t put on weight.

Despite eating over 5 times the daily recommended intake, a slim physique is still maintained. This tells us a lot about the problem of judging someone’s health by their size.

Myths about people who are ‘obese’ include the idea that they are always eating and that they often overeat, and/or binge-eat. In fact, only 25% of people who binge-eat meet the criteria for ‘obesity’ (BMI > 30).

Another common myth tells us that thin people are automatically healthier than those who are fat; a better way of conceptualising health involves looking at their eating patterns & lifestyle.

  1. Great interview- does trivialise the issue somewhat however it is important to see a health professional validate that this is indeed a mental health issue

  2. It is amazing these people dont put on weight. I hate the way the story showcases the food they are eating like the people have the crazies or are somehow extraordinary. It is good to highlight that body shape is not necessarily related to what a person eats.

  3. it must be terrible living like that. i imagine lots of ppl probably think theyre lucky they get to eat what they want but i think this is very sad indeed.

  4. “This tells us a lot about the problem of judging someone’s health by their size.”-I cosign 1000%

    “a better way of conceptualising health involves looking at their eating patterns & lifestyle.”-This was the base of a “mini debate” I had with an author of an article months ago. I agree.

  6. Definitely consider that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be at the net the simplest thing to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

  7. Estoy pensando en ir a la escuela en este momento y me gustaría consejos sobre wheather o no el programa que debería ir para la pena. Pensé que un foro de tecnología sería el mejor lugar para pedir consejo, ya que no conozco a nadie en este campo.
