Periodic overeating: As its name implies, binge eating refers to periodically eating vastly more than nutritional requirements would demand. This is an unhealthy pattern of eating, sometimes driven by emotional stress or by preceding undereating, for instance in extreme dieting. Binges followed by purging through vomiting or laxative use constitute classical bulemia, a dangerous eating disorder.

If you binge out: Of boredom, then you have too much free time on your hands. I don't know what your potential interests are, but seeing a therapist to help you expand your interests and joining weight watchers and making friends there could be potential places to start. Life is way too interesting to waste it in boredom. Find out what your true interests are and pursue them and cultivate them.
