Background Although studies have shown that COVID-19 has had a positive effect on people with eating disorders, no information has been found on Black American women who have disordered eating habits and are at risk for eating disorders. Hence, the aim of this report is to determine the effects of COVID-19 on Black women who binge-eat. We identified six themes to represent participants' experiences managing their diet during COVID-19: food as a coping tactic; increased time in a triggering environment; and positive effects of the pandemic. Conclusion In this report, black women reported difficulties controlling their eating habits during COVID-19. Results may help with the design and tailoring of medications for Black women with disordered eating habits.

Conclusions The study found that depressive symptom specifically mediated the association between ACEs and obesity, according to the authors, but binge eating disorder did not significantly mediate the association independently of depression. Conclusions In this research, depression's unique role in childhood suffering led to a greater emphasis on a mental health intervention with bariatric patients in the pre-operative period. ACEs for bariatric patients with psychiatric disorders during preoperative therapy may have potential benefits to patient care.

OXT function is affected in patients with eating and weight problems, and a variant of the oxytocin receptor gene has been attributed to impulsive eating disorder in patients with binge eating disorder. We also investigated if DNA methylation of the OXTR differs among people with obesity, according to a comorbid BED. We found no correlation between mean DNA methylation and BMI or self-reported eating disorder pathology. In male participants with BED who had BED and others without BED, a significant decrease in OXTR DNA methylation was found significantly lower than those without BED. Conclusions A clinically relevant binge eating disorder may be related to lower OXTR DNA methylation exclusively in males. BED is a phenotype of the obesity spectrum that is characterized by specific risk factors, according to this article.

In ED studies, wearable fitness trackers are often underused because there is no evidence that wearable fitness trackers negatively or positively influence PA engagement and ED symptoms in people with EDs. Participants in the maladaptive exercise group and non-maladaptive exercise group used a fitness tracker for 12 weeks and completed questionnaires to determine participants'u2019 perceptions of the fitness trackers' effects and PA participation throughout treatment. A tiny percentage of people believed the fitness tracker influenced ED practices or PA participation, according to mixed findings on whether participants positively or negatively perceived the fitness tracker encouraged them to engage in ED habits or PA participation.

During the pandemic, the present research investigated the causes and behaviors of adolescents and young adults with emotional eating, bingeing habits, and binge eating disorder. In addition, the investigation looked at whether people who experienced pandemic-related food availability and food affordability difficulties developed more binge-eating symptoms and negative feelings. During the COVID-19 pandemic, approximately half of all participants reported moderate to severe bingeing; those who experienced more COVID-related anxiety reported increased binge-eating habits. There were no correlations between indicators of food availability and affordability and binge eating, or between food availability and affordability and negative feelings. According to research, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have far-reaching negative impacts on mental stability. The aim of this report was to investigate binge-eating habits in adolescents and young adults during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as questions of food availability and food affordability, which culminated in increased binge-eating behaviors and negative emotions such as anxiety, fear, mood, and loneliness. Participants who experienced more than the effects of COVID-related stress on the CEFIS-AYA scale reported the highest rate of binge-eating habits on the CEFIS-AYA scale. There were no correlations between food availability and affordability and binge eating, or between food availability and affordability, as well as negative emotions. This report shows the importance of assessing patients' experiences of the numerous effects of COVID-19 on their daily lives, as well as the increasing availability of mental health services and continued assistance during the on-going pandemic.

Individuals with binge-eating disorder frequently experience emotion control deficiencies, such as negative perceptions of emotions and poor emotional expression. The current exploratory report investigated whether emotion-focused therapy for BED could change negative perceptions of emotions and emotional expression. EFT for BED resulted in major shifts in particular beliefs about emotions, but not necessarily emotional expression treatment outcomes. EFT has been found to be helpful in boosting maladaptive attitudes toward emotions in adults with BED, according to this pilot study.
