Eating Disorders - Binge-Eating

People with binge-eating disorder experience frequent episodes of out-of-control eating, similar to the binge-eating symptoms associated with bulimia. The main difference between binge-eating disorder and bulimia nervosa is that individuals with binge-eating disorder do not purge their bodies of excess calories. As a result, people with binge-eating disorder are frequently overweight for their age and height.

Feelings of self-disgust and shame associated with this illness can lead to binge-eating again, creating a cycle. People with binge eating disorder often eat an unusually large amount of food and feel out of control during the binges.

Community surveys have estimated that between 2 percent and 5 percent of Americans experience binge-eating disorder in a 6-month period.
