Binge Eating Disorder
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Perhaps you ate way too much turkey or stuffing at Thanksgiving. Maybe you had too many servings of ice cream cake at your father's birthday party. Then you've experienced that incredible fullness that comes from overeating. Almost everyone experiences that feeling once in a while.
 
2     Sometimes teenagers, who are growing like crazy, are constantly in the refrigerator looking for something else to eat. Almost every teenager has experienced that constant feeling of hunger once in a while, too.
 
3     A binge eating disorder appears to begin with these feelings, but occurs a lot more than once in a while. Imagine eating all that turkey, stuffing, and ice cream cake in secret, at night, a few times a week. Feeling completely out of control, a person with a binge eating disorder eats huge amounts of food rapidly on a regular basis.
 
4     It is estimated that around one to two million adult Americans have a binge eating disorder. The number is hard to completely confirm because many people are too embarrassed to seek help. It is known that around two-thirds with the condition are females and, therefore, one-third are males. This particular eating disorder is more common in those who have obese weights, although even those with healthy weights can have it. Often times, many members of the same family suffer from it.
