A new Harvard University study found that binge eating is the most common eating disorder among teens, yet most teens don't fully understand what it is. Binge eating can lead to serious health consequences including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. Program profiles real young people who have suffered from binge eating and have learned to control it. Experts on binge eating present the latest science on the underlying causes of this disorder and describe the best treatments currently available. Program is hosted by Jenni Schaefer, author of Life Without Ed and a frequent guest on Oprah, who relates her own experiences as she helps teens understand how to recognize the symptoms of binge eating and where to get help. Consultant: Jenni Schaefer, author of Life Without Ed.

Includes Resource Guide.
