A 33-year-old female asked:

Night eating...: Lots of people eat normally during the day and struggle with binge eating at night. This is usually because they are working during the day and focused on getting tasks accomplished, etc. At night, they have to "be" with themselves and a lot of feelings might come up. Bingeing may distract from uncomfortable feelings and thoughts. It's a negative coping mechanism but there is treatment/hope!

Binge eating is....: Binge eating disorder is characterized by eating large quantities of food, rapidly and often to the point of pain. There's a sense of a loss of control during the binge and intense feelings of shame and guilt. Bingeing is a negative coping mechanism and may be a response to anxiety or other uncomfortable emotions, or as an way to convert emotional pain to physical, or express loneliness.
A 25-year-old female asked:
Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin

Understanding BED...: Binge eating disorder is treatable through therapy (and sometimes in conjunction with a dietitian) . In treatment people learn what is eating "at" them instead of focusing on what they're eating. Bingeing is often a way of numbing, distracting or expressing internal conflict. Therapy helps you identify internal triggers and conflicts, and find new ways to cope. There is hope!
