Treatment of Obese Binge Eater, Korea. docljh@empal.com
It is now widely recognized that there is a subgroup of obese individuals with a significantly disordered eating behavior characterized by binge eating and psychosocial impairment. Many therapeutic approaches for the treatment of obese binge eaters including cognitivebehavioral therapy, treatment of obesity, nutritional counseling, psychoeducation, psychotherapy, motivation enhancement therapy, and medication have their own benefits. Treatment programs for obesity and eating disorders (binge eater, bulimia) have tended to adopt very different approaches to the eating behavior (dieting vs cessation of dieting) and body image (weight loss vs accepting one's current weight). Despite these differences, eating disorders, obesity, and unhealthy weight loss practices have a number of shared personal, socioenvironmental, and behavioral problems. It is important to integrate the treatment approaches to the spectrum of problems related to eating and weight (eating disorders, obesity, and unhealthy weight loss practices).
Key Words: Binge eating, Obesity, Integration
