Binge Eating

Binge eating is an eating disorder characterized by the total lack of control with food intake. This means that the subject consumes excessive amounts of food in one sitting, often until he experiences physical discomfort.

Binge eaters are often overweight or obese and have a hard time losing weight although there are people who suffer from this condition who are able to maintain their normal weights. Binge eating is considered a psychiatric disorder but it is still unknown what causes it. Binge eaters are aware of the amount of food they eat, are often embarrassed about their eating habits and yet are unable to control their binge-eating episodes. They usually become depressed, feel guilty or disgusted after a binge-eating episode. Some binge eaters also suffer from Bulimia Nervosa.

Binge eating is as much a health risk as Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. Since binge eaters have no control over the amount and kinds of food they consume, often consuming too much of the unhealthy things, they are largely malnourished. Binge eaters have a high-risk of acquiring diabetes, heart diseases, and even certain cancers.

It is recommended that binge eaters consult with qualified medical professionals that can help them undergo cognitive-behavioral therapy, monitor personal binge eating triggers and modify eating habits.
