Ever stood in front of the refrigerator eating frosting from a spoon? Or maybe in front of the cupboard eating half of a bag of Doritos the second you get home from work? Have you ever eaten almost an entire sleeve of Thin Mints at your desk in the time it took to compose an email? No? Um, me neither.
Ok, maybe I fibbed. But, who hasn't done this bad kind of eating at some point in their life? Whether we're stressed, sad, happy or for no reason at all, I'm guessing we've all had an eating moment we're not particularly proud of. Luckily, for most of us, a moment of weakness might bring some guilt, or maybe even indigestion, but it's not a major problem in our lives.
But for some, binge eating is a dangerous and devastating problem that wreaks havoc on individuals and their families. It's one of the core symptoms of most eating disorders, including bulimia nervosa and the binge/purge subtype of anorexia.
So why is it that some people are afflicted with an eating disorder and some are not? Are there biological and genetic factors that might play a role?
