Ryan Sheldon on Being A Guy with Binge Eating Disorder

00:0000:00

In this podcast, Tabitha has a chat to Ryan Sheldon. Ryan talks about how he first discovered that he had binge eating disorder (BED), how it impacted his life and his mental health, and how he progressed through treatment.

In this podcast, we discuss:

  • Binge Eating Disorder from a sufferer’s perspective
  • Cultural implications of being a man with an eating disorder
  • The behaviors and thought patterns associated with Binge Eating Disorder
  • The importance of speaking out and seeking support
  • The effects of treatment
  • What recovery looks like for Ryan

About Ryan

Guy with Binge Eating DisorderRyan Sheldon is founder of ​Confessions of a Binge Eater​, a blog he created to share about his journey with Binge Eating Disorder (BED). Ryan hopes his story will help others suffering from BED overcome shame and embarrassment. In particular, Ryan provides a voice for the many men struggling eating disorders while encouraging them to get help.
Ryan used to spend his days thinking about food, planning for it, and indulging in it. For years, he justified this by calling it “emotional eating” until he realized his love affair with food was spiraling out of control. Ryan was diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder, an illness characterized by compulsive overeating.​ ​Since then, he has made it his mission to not only overcome BED but to inspire others to do the same.

Negative Energy Balance or Energy Deficit in Restrictive Eating Disorders

00:0000:00

In this podcast I explain negative energy balance (energy deficit) in restrictive eating disorders. I talk about what it actually is, how it is different in a person with an eating disorder compared to a person without an eating disorder, and how if feels.

Energy deficit is important to understand as it helps us figure out why something that feels really good for us can actually be very bad for us. In order to recover, sufferers have to learn to resist the lure of negative energy balance and the soothing aspects of it. While this creates anxiety and uncomfortableness at first, it is an important aspect of recovery.

Understanding the mechanisms behind restrictive eating disorders can help us figure out what we need to do in order to overcome them.
