Binge eating is a major cause for excessive and unhealthy eating habits. It is common for people to eat when they are depressed, stressed out, angry, or anxious. This is very unhealthy and hurts your body a lot in the long run. Most of the junk food we eat at such times is full of calories and fats that are extremely harmful for our health. Food is not a medicine. It is your fuel, your body's source of nourishment so that it can maintain a healthy energy pool for your daily activities. Avoid binge eating!
