  • Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most common eating disorder and is characterized by a loss of control over eating.
  • Bariatric surgery does not cure an eating disorder, and BED can reoccur after surgery.
  • Binge grazing involves consuming small amounts of food over a long period of time and can contribute to weight regain.
  • Triggers for binge eating include emotional factors, such as trauma and untreated mental health issues, as well as environmental factors.
  • Seeking help from an interdisciplinary team of professionals specialized in bariatrics and eating disorders is crucial for successful treatment.
