Welcome to Mindfullness!

I look forward to hearing from all of you, and engaging in exciting and ongoing dialogue about issues related to eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image.

The mission of Mindfullness is to provide a forum for those struggling with an eating disorder or disordered eating. It is also a forum for those affected by a loved ones illness, or those interested in educating others about these issues.

Binge Eating and Monkeys

Interesting! A study conducted at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta provides insight into the reinforcing nature of binge eating.

Researchers wanted to better understand the comforting function of binge eating. They compared eating patterns between “popular” and “unpopular” monkeys. At first, the less popular monkeys ate less. However, when monkey junk food (banana pellets) was introduced,  the less popular monkeys ate significantly more than popular monkeys.

They ate banana pellets all day and throughout the night.
