  Are You An Overeater

Do any of these food related statements describe your experience?

  • I eat meal portions larger than necessary.
  • I eat privately before eating publicly to disguise how much I eat.
  • I'm a "grazer," eating throughout the day and evening.
  • I eat alone after being with friends or coworkers.
  • I crowd my mind with thoughts about food.
  • I starve myself for hours or days to create guilt free eating time.
  • I binge. (Classically binge eating involves massive eating in a short period of time. But while a quart of ice cream may be a binge to one person a small dish may be a binge to another. If you think or feel you binge, that self defined binge behavior is something to explore.)
  • I vomit or use laxatives to clear my body of food I've eaten.
  • I exercise regularly and specifically to burn up calories from what I think is too much food.
  • I have private rituals regarding certain foods.
If you have answered “yes” to some of these questions, you may be eating for reasons other than food hunger. It may be time to Examine Your Relationship with Food. Please contact... Susan Simon-Fleischer MSW, LCSW at (973) 535-3626
