Binge Eating Symptoms are hard to spot. This is due to the fact that most binge eaters don’t indulge in compulsive eating in front of others. Most friends and family of binge eaters are usually surprised when they find out that the person whom they have grown to know and love is actually suffering from binge eating since they never see them eat.
Binge eating symptoms may include:
- Eating alone
- Abnormal weight gain
Those suffering from binge eating are typically depressed and emotionally distraught. Many are seeking through their compulsive overeating to fill a void they feel exists on the inside. Their behavior causes a spiral, which leads to further isolation and continued binge eating. The best chance to reverse binge eating is to stay on top of binge eating symptoms in order to intervene as early as possible.
