People suffering from binge eating disorder are self-conscious and embarrassed about their eating patterns. Hence they dearly try to conceal their symptoms and choose to eat when no one is around. Binge eaters usually tend to be obese.
Symptoms of binge eating
Binge eaters are unable to control their appetite and simply cannot restrain themselves from eating or what they are eating. They commonly are use to masticating on large amounts of food regardless of the fact that they might be extremely full. They have the propensity to hide food and tend to stock up on huge piles of food secretly. Also they might act to eat normally when they are in company of others, but when alone, they simply gorge on everything in sight. Because of these abnormal habits they usually don’t have any proper timing when they have their meals and simply keep eating throughout the day
Effects of binge eating disorder
Binge eating can cause a range of emotional, social and physical issues. People dealing with binge eating disorder are described to be at more risk to conditions such as stress, suicidal thoughts, insomnia, and cardiovascular diseases, than people who adhere to proper eating habits. Anxiety, depression and drug abuse are some of the most common side effects of binge eating. However, the most common effect of binge eating disorder is weight gain.
