People who binge eat consume very large quantities of food over a short period of time, even when they are not hungry.Binges are often planned in advance and can involve the person buying "special" binge foods.In rare cases, people describe themselves as being in a "dazed state" during a binge – particularly binges during the night – and they are not able to recall what they ate.People who binge eat feel they have no control over their eating. They often binge in private because they feel embarrassed, guilty or disgusted with their behaviour after they have finished eating.Episodes of binge eating sometimes alternate with periods where the person cuts down on the amount of food they eat.This can lead to a vicious cycle that is difficult to break – where blood sugar levels rise and fall rapidly, and false messages are sent to the brain, which result in cravings for food when your body doesn't need it.
