The Danger of Being a Binge Eater

As we all know, some emotional factors can be a great cause of out-of-control eating, or in another word: Binge eating. Well, for those of you who don’t know, this is a perilous eating disorder that might lead to major physical complications such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart diseases and much more. Also, advanced stages of Binge eating can definitely lead to obesity.

You might know a person who has this disorder, you might even be one. I personally am living with such a person and I know how bad things can be. Usually, this kind of eating is characterized by gaining weight, depression, hating the self, eating secretly… etc. And to mention some of the causes, I have to say that this habit is raised due to the need of filling a void taking place in the life of the Binge eater. One can also use food as a way to cope with or prevent negative emotions.

I believe that all eating disorders can be overcome with: first, admitting that you have one, and second, a suitable treatment.
