In brief: Therapy
BED is an attempt to resolve a psychological conflict through physical action.
People often think they are triggered by food but actually are triggered by internal conflicts that lead to the food. They binge to numb, distract or comfort themselves. The treatment is to identify what's eating "at" you instead of focusing on what you're eating, and find new ways to respond to yourself.
