Binge Eating Disorder Symptoms

Recognizing the signs of a binge eating disorder can assist you in helping your loved one who may be dealing with this condition. The main symptom is eating large amounts of food. Binge eating disorder is different from bulimia nervosa, in that those with a binge eating disorder do not purge (forcing yourself to vomit). People with binge eating disorder may eat quicker than normal, eat until uncomfortably full, eat large amounts of food even when not hungry, eat alone out of embarrassment at the quantity of food being eating, and feel disgusted, depressed, and guilty after overeating.
