Symptom: Binge Eating Disorder

    Binge eating disorder (binge eating disorder) is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating without subsequent purging episodes. Although binge eating disorders have been described since the 1950s, binge eating disorder has only been officially recognized as a formal diagnosis by the American Psychiatric Association since 2013, with the publication of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). Before the DSM-5 inclusion, binge eating disorder was considered an "unspecified eating disorder." Binge eating disorder is different from other eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, orthorexia (obsessively eating "healthy foods"), or restrictive eating disorder (restricting eating of certain foods).
