Why do some people binge eat?


Respected Member
I have not binged in a few days, but yesterday I got close. Had more sweet things than normal and sure wanted more... Maybe connected to not exercising and the knee problems, but maybe not.
like I had no control, like I was a passenger in my own body.
I sure know that feeling... not happy about it but its just me I guess...
For me it's more like my neocortex doesn't want it but the ole lizard brain does.
Probably me too, but I am not sure what the "neocortex" is. I suppose it is the "lizard brain" thing.

Rob. I think your body was trying to tell you something. Your body needs that fuel to sustain your energy output.

Maybe try to describe what it feels like, as closely as you can. Where is the feeling? Is it sharp, or soft, does it cover a large area? Is it desperate and small or big and demanding? Does it have s colir? Any other attributes? Would blaating music or taking a bath help?
