Post  Matthew on Wed Dec 19, 2007 10:49 am

Binge eating disorder (BED), is a psychiatric disorder in which a subject shows the following symptoms:

-Periodically does not exercise control over consumption of food
-Eats an unusually large amount of food at one time -- more than a normal person would eat in the same amount of time.
-Eats much more quickly during binge episodes than during normal eating episodes
-Eats until physically uncomfortable
-Eats large amounts of food even when they are not really hungry
-Usually eats alone during binge eating episodes, in order to avoid discovery of the disorder
-Often eats alone during periods of normal eating, owing to feelings of embarrassment about food
-Feels disgusted, depressed, or guilty after binge eating
