The next question is about 'eating binges' where a person eats a large amount of food during a short period like two hours. By 'a large amount' I mean eating so much food that it would be like eating two or more entire meals in one sitting, or eating so much of one particular food -- like candy or ice cream -- that it would make most people feel sick. With that definition in mind, did you ever have a time in your life when you went on eating binges (READ SLOWLY) at least twice a week for several months or longer?
