Compulsive overeating (the eating disorder duology post 1)
I have decided I’m going to do two posts on the 2 major eating disorders: Bulimia Nervosa and Anorexia Nervosa.
Today I’m going to focus on compulsive overeating, which is also known as binging.
Here is the first of the duology.
In compulsive overeating, the person affected goes on an eating binge, which is when they consume a lot of food in a short period of time. People affected end up gaining lots of weight and become unhealthy. They end up getting teased about their weight and turn to food to make them feel better. As a result, they eat more and more and more.Usually they eat in private because they feel self conscious and they don’t want to be teased any more then they have to be. What food they eat ends up being unhealthy and end up needing medical and mental help.After a while, their mental state turns into an addiction to food and binging, making a very unhealthy habit. When the people go shopping, they usually buy a lot of food at once and after a while end up stealing to support their binging. I think this eating disorder, which is mental and physical, is disgusting and revolting, but it can’t be helped so people with this disorder should get help to stop doing this. I think this could be caused by a mix of ads that confuse you by telling you to eat this, that, and the other thing. Also, we focus so much on getting people to buy this food at this restaurant or a big whopper at MC Donald’s. We make it very good but it ends up being very unhealthy and ultimately, the producer only cares for the money, which is revolting, and doesn’t care about the health of his customer. Overall, compulsive overeating can be caused by a lot of things, but mainly is caused by unhealthy but delicious food.
