Binge eating, what?

A binge eating episode can last over an hour, though it may be much shorter or longer. Sometimes binge eating is a planned activity and other times it is not. Most binges involve the consumption of more than 1,000 calories, with a quarter of binges exceeding 2,000 calories. (Walden Behavioral Care)

It is funny though, because when I have an "episode", I do not think of the calories. Or for how long I eat. Did I plan it? Sometimes it might last an hour. Sometimes a whole day. Sometimes a week.

Once again, everyone is different. I believe that what is important is understanding what is happening to us, and learning how to deal with it.

Binge-eating has been glamorized and ridiculed in a lot of films, series, TV programs. Who thought it was funny to binge-eat in front of the TV after a breakup? Definitely not me.

You are not alone. There is help out there, and others just like you.

Let's be kind to ourselves today.
