Title: Men Struggle, Too: My Journey with Binge-Eating Disorder


Description: I’m often asked what’s it like being a guy with Binge-Eating Disorder. It’s sad but true, many view eating disorders as female illnesses. Why is there so much shame about being a guy with an eating disorder? Why did it take so long for me to get diagnosed? Come join me to find out what it’s really like being a guy with Binge-Eating Disorder. I will share my story and give you insights into working with males with eating disorders.


Here’s a recent article he published in the Huffington Post. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/binge-eating-disorder_us_5b1574cee4b02143b7cf0b47?ncid=engmodushpmg00000004


Bio: Ryan Sheldon, founder of the blog Mr. Confessions formerly Confessions Of A Binge Eater, a blog he created to not only document his body image and eating disorder struggles but also to promote self-love. He is proud to be a much-needed voice for men whose struggles all too often are neglected while encouraging them to reach out for professional help. Ryan is currently working on a book and has a self-love Instagram account @BingeEaterConfessions
