Binge eating is consuming more food than is necessary often at times when no real hunger is present with compulsive feelings to eat and eat vast amounts of food mainly high fat, high sugar and processed.
Binge eating is like an addiction
can become addictive as the brain links eating as being pleasurable and triggers the idea of a binge in response to uncomfortable emotions and feelings, which also numbs like a drug for a short time.
Binge eating and bulimia
