    Binge eating
    Denby posted:
    My doctor said I was a overeater not a binger. I guess the definition of binger wasn't what I thought. I'm keeping a food diary and write everything down. I'm pretty conciencious of what I put in my mouth. I was s bulimic then anorexic back to a 36 bmi which I hate. So I do have a eating disorder. Just wanted to talk abit. No positive support at home.

    That is probably because your doctor is ""old school:: binge eating disorder wasnt even invented until 2015. Invented by Shire Pharmaceuticals in 2014, and passed by CDC and of course got put in the big book of new mental illnesses in 2015. Shire pharmaceuticals had a big stock of Ritalin they needed to get rid of, so invented Binge Eating Disorder. Not allowed to sell a drug for obesity, but anyhow Ritalin is great, bit addictive, sends ya nuts, but guaranteed, like any ampheltamine to make you lose weight, and what the hell if it doesnt work, you wont care anyway!
