In this case report, two women (19 and 20 years old, respectively) diagnosed with binge eating disorder took part who signed an informed consent form and answered a battery of validated questionnaires in the Mexican population, this in the Pretest and Posttest phases to assess binge eating, body dissatisfaction, self-esteem, anxiety and depression symptoms, and quality of life. It was found that through the calculation of the objective clinical change, a favorable change between 50% and 80% of the assessed variables was found. It is concluded that the intervention using cognitive-behavioral strategies had a positive effect on binge eating and its associated variables.
