Overeating becomes a disorder only when it’s already uncontrollable or when the urge to eat arises without any stimuli like the presence of food in front of you. Compulsive overeating is the term used for this disorder; it is also sometimes called food addiction. A person suffering from this disorder engages in frequent episodes of binge eating, and most of the time, they are out of control. This kind of disorder needs prompt attention so that no further eating disorders may occur.
