Feeling tremendously upset or distressed following a binge eating episode, frequent bouts of uncontrollable binge eating. For binge eaters, overeating is a habitual and uncontrollable occurrence, and food is used to deal with stress and other depressing emotions, even if afterwards the person feels worse.
