Binge Eating Disorder

Binge Eating Disorder is an illness characterized by recurrent episodes of this kind of binge eating, along with the sense of loss of control over content and/or quantity of food consumed.

Note: binge eating is a potential symptom in all three types of disorders. In anorexia and bulimia, there is an attempt to compensate for calories consumed, either through self-induced vomiting, laxative abuse or excessive exercise, whereas in binge eating disorder, there is a lack of compensatory behaviors. There are also a plethora of similar warning signs including denial of hunger, being ritualistic about food (for example, chewing each bite a certain number of times, incessantly measuring food servings, counting the number of food items eaten), being vague or secretive about eating, frequently skipping meals, experiencing feelings of guilt after eating, exhibiting great concern about weight gain, abusing diet pills or prescription medications, and having a negative body image.  read more…
