The paper addresses binge eating's physical effects of weight gain, obesity, high blood pressure and heart disease, the social avoidance, and the low self-esteem, and depression. The paper highlights how the social, physical, and emotional effects of binge eating directly result in its perpetuation, and therefore the psychological needs must be treated before there can be social and physical progression. Therefore, the paper concludes that the binge eater must recognize that he needs help, commit to making changes, and choose to break the cycle.

From the Paper:

"Binge eating, which has just recently become a classified eating disorder, affects millions of Americans and is purportedly the most common eating disorder diagnosed today. Typically, binge eating is characterized by consuming significantly large amounts of food, eating more rapidly than normal, eating until uncomfortably full, eating alone out of embarrassment, and feeling depressed and guilty after over-eating ("Binge Eating"). The adverse effects of this disorder can be seen socially, physically, and emotionally by those who suffer from it. Socially, behaviors such as avoidance can affect school, work, and other social activities. The physical repercussions include weight gain, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, and the list continues onward. Emotionally, depression and low self-esteem are the most commonly visible side-effects. The cognate social, physical, and emotional consequences of this disorder are so closely related to its causes that they are often indiscernible. Unfortunately, this cause and effect relationship results in binge eating: the unbreakable cycle."
