Resorting to food just to feel better even if you’re not hungry can be a psychological condition that must be addressed – before ruining your life! It’s called binge eating and for sure, you will know someone in your lifetime who could be suffering from this disorder. Learn more here:
We all overeat from time to time—taking an extra helping at Thanksgiving dinner or having dessert when you’re already full. But for binge eaters, overeating is regular and uncontrollable. You use food to cope with stress and other negative emotins, even though afterwards you feel even worse. You may feel like you’re stuck in a vicious cycle, but binge eating disorder is treatable. With the right help and support, you can learn to control your eating and develop a healthy relationship with food. http://www.helpguide.org/mental/binge_eating_disorder.htm
Binge eating disorder must not be ignored because it can result to death due to depression. Eating should make one feel satisfied, comfortable and happy – not the other way around. It is best to follow the recommendations of your psychologist on how to get rid of this problem. Remember that this is curable and should not be left untreated.
