Eating Disorders Expert
Yes, it certainly does sound like you suffer from the compulsive eating disorders called Binge Eating Disorder. The key is for you to implement a manner of eating that is moderated. Get onto a regular meal plan of three meals and three snacks spaced evenly through the day. Do not focus on losing weight, but rather getting into a regular, well-moderated lifestyle and keeping a journal of how you are feeling emotionally. Much of what I can advise you is in an excellent book by a leading world authority, Dr. Christopher Fairburn, called Overcoming Binge Eating. It is excellent and can be ordered online from places like Kalahari.com. Get it and follow the guidelines and work steps he outlines. I've a few dozen copies of the book that I lend to my patients, and I am normally not a fan of self-help books.
