Binge Eating

Also known as Compulsive Overeating, is characterized by regularly eating excessive amounts of food (binging), eating when not hungry and continuing eating even long after uncomfortably full. After a binge, individuals may try to diet or eat normal meals, triggering a new round of bingeing. Individuals with binge eating disorders may be of normal weight, overweight or may even be obese.


During a binge one is likely to eat much more and faster in comparison to a normal meal or snack. One may also feel that the eating behavior is out of control, frequently eating alone and feeling depressed, disgusted or upset over the amount eaten.
