Most of us have indulged in “just one more bite”, “just a small second serving” at some point or the other. This is called binge eating.
Why do people binge eat?
It’s because to a lot of us food is a treat. A pleasure. For some, it’s an escape or comfort. Whether it’s the childhood memory of our mother’s cooking or our favourite dish from our first date, all of us have emotional attachments to food. In fact, if you started listing down the reasons why you eat, you’ll be able to see that most of these reasons are emotional.
