Food is one of life’s essentials and one can feel surrounded by it and therefore it can sometimes feel difficult to escape. Compulsive eaters often eat very quickly and to the point of discomfort, continuing to consume food when they are no longer hungry.

These binges are often pre-planned, usually undertaken alone, and may include foods specifically acquired for such episodes.

Many say they feel guilt and shame after overeating. Men and women of any age can suffer with it although the disorder usually starts in the late teens or early 20s. A compulsive overeater averages two binges a week for at least six months,
