What is Binge Eating Disorder?
Binge eating is not the same as having differences in appetite sometimes. This is normal. People who binge, rapidly consume excessive amounts of food. They might eat quickly, or eat while doing other things (like watching television), and continue to eat when they are full. Binge eaters are ofter overweight – perhaps obese – due to their high consumption of calories which their bodies can’t use up. Binge eaters can feel a loss of control whilst bingeing due to various deiiferent reasons. Binge eating disorder is also known as compulsive overeating.
Binge eating can be a result of feeling stressed, angry, or upset. The food consumption soothes the sufferer, but after a binge they may feel guilty and shameful. Binge eating can be a way of avoiding or dealing with emotions. Most people who suffer from binge eating disorder are not aware of why this happens, which can be very distressing for them.
