Signs and symptoms of binge eating disorder

"people with binge eating disorder are embarrassed and ashamed of their eating habits, so they often try to hide their symptoms and eat in secret."

behavioral symptoms of binge eating and compulsive overeating
  • inability to stop eating or control what you’re eating 
  • rapidly eating large amounts of food 
  • eating even when you’re full 
  • hiding or stockpiling food to eat later in secret 
  • eating normally around others, but gorging when you’re alone 
  • eating continuously throughout the day, with no planned mealtimes 

emotional symptoms of binge eating and compulsive overeating
  • feeling stress or tension that is only relieved by eating 
  • embarrassment over how much you’re eating 
  • feeling numb while bingeing—like you’re not really there or you’re on auto-pilot. 
  • never feeling satisfied, no matter how much you eat 
  • feeling guilty, disgusted, or depressed after overeating 
  • desperation to control weight and eating habits

ok it's happening again. ah fuck.
