Binge Eating Disorder
Binge-eating disorder (or BED) is a serious eating disorder in which sufferers frequently consume unusually large amounts of food. The formal diagnosis criteria are similar in that people binge at least twice per week for a minimum period of three months.
People with binge-eating disorder, sometimes called compulsive overeating, regularly eat excessive amounts of food (called a binge). A binge is considered eating a larger amount of food than most people would eat under similar situations. For instance, sufferers may eat 10,000 to 20,000 calories worth of food during a single binge, while someone following a normal diet may eat 1,500 to 3,000 calories in an entire day.
