Have you ever suffered and find refuge in food? Have you ever overeat and isolate yourself from any social relationship?

In these cases, it is called binge eating disorder, also called BED (acronym for Binge Eating Disorder).

This disorder is very similar to bulimia, but unlike the latter, after binges, it does not resort to self-induced vomiting, laxatives or diuretics so the characteristic of those affected is the steady increase in the weight up the development of a real obesity.

People suffering from this disorder, seek comfort in binge eating in solitude, causing a feeling of extreme fullness, sense of loss, shame and guilt. Sufferers use food to manage their emotions, both positive and negative, no longer be able to recognize the sense of hunger or satiety.
