Good evening, this is Howard,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this problem. I know that it's very upsetting, and embarrassing as well.

The causes of binge-eating disorder are unknown. Family history, biological, and psychological factors all contribute to this disorder.

Psychotherapy, medications, and weight loss programs, or a combination are all three, can be very effective in resolving this disorder. Below you will find the link to a web site with lots of great information about binge eating.

Please feel free to post a follow-up question. I'm here to help!
