Eating Disorder Awareness week

It’s Eating Disorder Awareness Week and this weeks focus is on Binge Eating Disorder! This is the most common but least understood eating disorder with order with 1 in 50 of us being affected in our lifetime. It isn’t about being greedy or lacking willpower, but a serious mental illness which many suffer with alone, often with the fear of how others might react the reason they don’t reach out for help.
