In brief: Yes
Binge eating disorder is treatable through therapy (and sometimes in conjunction with a dietitian) .
In treatment people learn what is eating "at" them instead of focusing on what they're eating. Bingeing is often a way of numbing, distracting or expressing internal conflict. Therapy helps you identify internal triggers and conflicts, and find new ways to cope. There is hope!
