Reason behind binge eating

 

When a person is in emotional stress/ depression, it is more likely for them to develop binge eating, as it would act as a tranquilizer or a stress buster. They feel comfortable just to satiate their urge to keep away from anxiety or emotional break down. Such people should identify the root cause of the problem, which could be a domestic problem or any personal issues and avoid such eating habits, says nutritionist Sunitha premalatha.
