Binge eating disorder (BED) is characterized by recurrent episodes of eating large amounts of food, often quickly and to the point of discomfort, according to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).

People struggling with binge eating disorder feel a loss of control while bingeing, followed by shame, distress, or guilt afterward. It is the most common eating disorder in the United States.

‘The last year and a half, I can’t even explain how happy I am to have gotten to the point where I am and this is my life and this is my job and I really enjoy what I do every day. I really do,’ he said.

The influencer explained that her binge eating has become more difficult to manage in recent months.

‘Things are getting worse for me [with] how I feel about myself, my body, my confidence,” she said. And obviously a lot of that has to do with my binge eating that I’ve said, back and forth, it’s gotten better, it’s gotten worse. But to be honest, It’s gotten to a point where it’s not getting any better.

Bader debated leaving for treatment, but ultimately decided that an outpatient program was the best option for her at this time.

She said she will continue to make videos during treatment because that’s when she feels “most confident and best.”

“It’s more those feelings that I have about myself when I’m alone with myself, when I eat, when I get ready to go somewhere, when I look at myself,” she shared.

‘I should feel better when I’m alone. I shouldn’t feel better just because of what other people think of me and through this app.’

‘Things are getting worse for me [with] how I feel about myself, my body, my confidence,” she said. “And obviously a lot of that has to do with my binge eating.”

On Wednesday, the day treatment began, she returned to TikTok in a ‘realistic’ Abercrombie & Fitch wedding dress.

Bader opened up about his binge eating disorder during an interview with the local optimist in February, saying he started bingeing before his rise to fame on TikTok.

“When I was working in the music industry and I was feeling stressed, I would come home and order $50 worth of food and eat it all,” she recalled.

“Afterwards, I would cry and get really angry, and it became a really scary phase that no one, not even my family or close friends, could understand. I kept it for so long, it’s not who I am.

Bader said she has always been a “pretty open book” and her binge eating was the first mental health issue she was “a little embarrassed to talk about.”

In a February interview, Bader said his bingeing started when he was working in the music industry.  If she felt stressed, she would order food and eat it all at once.

“But once time went on and I developed this platform, I had a moment one day where I said to my mom, ‘Should I talk about eating? Is it weird?'” she said. ‘At that time, people followed me more for my funny videos and fashion videos.

‘I was nervous, what are people going to think? But once I did the first one, I never cared or thought about it again.’

However, he noted that he wasn’t in a place where he’s “overcome any of the issues with food,” saying he’s “still struggling.”

“I don’t think I’m going to talk about binge eating that publicly right now because, a few weeks ago, I was like, ‘Wow, I haven’t been drunk in a month, I’m so happy,’ and everyone was celebrating me.” ‘But then in the last few weeks, I binge again. So it’s like, what am I going to post now? ‘Are you kidding?’

“I’m very happy to talk about my struggles and share that with other people who understand, but maybe I don’t need to post all the details for everyone’s opinion, which isn’t that helpful.”
