Food provides nutrients for our activities, growth, and functioning. In a modern developed society food is expected to be enjoyable and burden-free, often carrying a social component in shared meals in our family or circles of friends.
Binge-Eating disorder is associated with the compulsive consumption of large quantities of food, even in the absence of hunger. It is marked by poor awareness of food choices, nutritional value and optimal quantities. Most importantly, the relationship with food is affected by the frequent sense of guilt and secrecy revolving around eating itself, which makes our relationship with food adverse and unnatural.
The impulsive nature of Binge-Eating Disorder links it with other averse habits and addictions, e.g. excessive alcohol consumption.
