Binge eating disorder (BED) is the most widespread eating disorder in Denmark. It is a severe, life-threatening disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of eating large quantities of food. Going along is a feeling of loss of control during the binge and experiencing shame, distress or guilt afterwards. Suffering from BED is closely related with bad self-esteem, often a difficult childhood, sometimes abuse and a life centered around weight loss. Few people know about the phenomena, but 40.000-50.000 Danish people are suffering from it. Karen, Hans, Heidi and Charlotte, all battle with BED and has done so since childhood. Their lives are all about hiding what they consume. Karen hides food behind her computer; so her husband cannot see what she is eating, even though he is fully aware of what she is doing. Heidi has had her boyfriend lock his candy inside a box, so she cannot get up and eat it during the night. Charlotte always stands behind the door to the fridge, so that no one can see what she´s doing, and Hans – when weighing more than 220 kilos - had a gastric bypass surgery. He has lost about 60 kilos which probably saved his life. But the surgery doesn’t mean that he now has a healthy relation to food: “I had a surgery in my stomach – not in the head”, he says. All four of them have tried every possible diet but every time it ends in failure. And for every pound lost there are more pounds gained. Obsessive thoughts about food are constantly there. As Heidi says: “My common sense tells me that it is totally crazy and sick what I do. But I cannot help myself. I just simply don’t know what to do about it”. Currently there is no publicly funded treatment available in Denmark, and private treatment is very expensive.
