Women with binge eating disorder may skip breakfast and eat much larger meals for lunch and dinner. Often, binge eaters will also eat meals late at night that consist mostly of sweets and carbohydrates. Women struggling with binge eating disorder use the manipulation of food through binge eating as a self-soothing mechanism or as a distraction from the fears and emotions in their lives that they find overwhelming. When dealing with binge eating, women may discuss following strict diets but not be able to stop the binge eating episodes without help. Binge eating disorder cannot be overcome simply by will power and having binge eating disorder is not a sign of weakness or a character flaw.
