Is It Overeating or Binge Eating? 6 Questions to Ask

I often hear the question: “Is overeating the same as binge eating?” This is an understandable question, given that “overeating” and “binging” are terms that you hear frequently in the media or in casual day-to-day conversations. It’s common to use these terms interchangeably, however mental health professionals define them differently. Overeating is a behavior that everyone does from time to time. Binge eating is quite different. People who engage in frequent binge eating can struggle with isolation, depression and low self-worth. Additionally, their pattern of eating may have a negative effect on relationships, sleep or productivity at work. People who engage in binge eating regularly could meet criteria for binge eating disorder. Binge eating disorder currently impacts an estimated 2.8% of American adults, more than double the cases of anorexia and bulimia combined. It can lead to a variety of psychological effects (anxiety, depression, alcohol or drug use) and medical complications (high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease) in both men and women. To help you determine if your eating is actually binge eating (and not just overeating), here are some questions to ask: Do you consume amounts of food that you or others might describe as excessive? Everyone overeats once in a while. For example, there are many cultural events where food is central to the celebration and large amounts or servings are frequently consumed b...

aredes J, Arana S Abstract Spoilage yeasts detection is the key to improve the quality of alcoholic fermentation beverages such as wine and cider. The metabolic activity of the spoilage yeast causes irreparable damage to many liters of final products every year. Therefore, winemakers and cider-house companies suffer a substantial economic impact. Thus, over the years, many detection techniques have been proposed to control the occurrence of spoilage yeast. Out of the many spoilage yeast genera, Brettanomyces is one of the most commonly encountered in the beverage industry. Leveraging its ability to thrive in wine ...

We examined this approach for studies on several types of T cell membrane proteins, previously defined as raft or non-raft associated, to see whether the properties of the raft derived SMALPs differ from non-raft SMALPs. Our results indicate that two types of raft proteins, GPI-anchored proteins and two Src family kinases, are markedly present in membrane fragments much larger (>250 nm) than those containing non-raft proteins (

In this present study, the structural behavior of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) mixed with phosphonium- and imidazolium- based ionic liquids (1 wt%) combined with different counter anions was investigated. The effect of the chemical nature of the cation ...

The addition of HPAM could increase the surface tension of AES solutions caused by the decrease of surfactant adsorption density at the air-water surface. The viscosity of the AES/HPAM systems were determined by the HPAM concentration. With...

Abstract An ultrasensitive label-free amperometric immunosensor for the detection of chloramphenicol (CAP) residues in milk has been developed by using a screen-printed carbon electrode laminated with a layer of poly (vinyl alcohol-co-ethylene) (PVA-co-PE) nanofibrous membrane that is covalently immobilized with a CAP antibody (anti-CAP). The performance of the PVA-co-PE nanofiber membrane (PVA-co-PE NFM) on the electrode was compared with a PVA-co-PE casted membrane (PVA-co-PE CM), necessary fabrication steps and performance of the sensors were investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The app...
