Over Eating

Articles, Videos and treatment options for Over Eating

A basic definition of overeating is, simply put, excessive eating—consuming more calories than necessary and generally consuming in large portions that cause a person to feel uncomfortably full. It is not a specific diagnosis; it may refer to a discrete incident of eating too much such as during holidays, celebrations, or while on vacation; or it may refer to habitual excessive eating.
