Help for Binge Eating

The reasons for binge eating vary as much as the people who suffer from the problem, and most people who binge need professional help, says the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Symptoms of binge eating include recurrent episodes of overeating within a specific time and a lack of control over eating during this time; eating more rapidly than usual; eating until feeling uncomfortably full; eating large amounts of food when not physically hungry; and eating alone because of embarrassment about overeating.
