Hollywood movies often depict ‘binge eating’ as a woman sitting in front of a television watching a love story with a huge spoon and a bucket of ice cream, sobbing after breaking up with her boyfriend. However the reality is far less dramatic and far more common than you might think. Do you eat when you’re feeling sad, lonely, bored, fatigued, angry or worried? Do you eat when you’re not feeling physically hungry? Do you use food as a source of pleasure or reward? If you answered yes to any of these questions you are eating out of emotion.
