Trying to Understand Eating Compulsion

Postby persistentone » Wed Aug 02, 2017 10:11 am

Can someone here with long-term bulimia help me to understand the nature of the compulsion that leads to overeating sweets and carbs? Is this like some kind of obsessive/compulsive habit? Or is it more about suffering from a period of starvation, and at some point the hunger becomes unbearable and you respond by massive overeating of calorie rich foods?

Is there a good online resource that would describe the actual thinking process - as well as the underlying feelings - that a bulimic goes through during the various parts of the eating cycle?
