Binge-eating is recurrent overeating, characterized by feelings of guilt and loss of control after the binge. As opposed to bulimia, a binge-eater (or a compulsive overeater) will not use compensatory behavior to counter the binge. A binge-eater might feel disgusted or ashamed after overeating. Binge-eaters also tend to eat in private, keep the problem a secret and even hide food. Binge-eaters often eat when they aren’t hungry. Binge-eating can lead to obesity and the health problems associated with obesity. Binge-eating is a psychological condition that is treated through therapy, support groups and psychological treatment.
