Despite Heath Benefits Vegetarians Faces Risk Of Eating Disorders From Diet

In an odd turn of events new pieces of evidence has showed that people who regularly engage in vegetable diets are themselves faces risk of suffering from disordered eating disorders.

Based on the recent issue of the Journal of American Dietetic Association, researchers discovered that aside from the benefit of decreased risk for overweight and obesity, vegetarians are at risk to suffer from binged eating.

Binge eating is a pattern of disordered eating which consists of episodes of uncontrollable overeating.
It is sometimes as a symptom of binge eating disorder. During such binges, a person rapidly consumes an excessive amount of food.

Most people who have eating binges try to hide this behaviour from others, and often feel ashamed or depressed about their overeating.

Eating binges can be followed by so-called compensatory behaviour, acts by which the person tries to compensate for the effects of overeating.

Examples of such acts are purging (induced vomiting or laxative abuse), fasting, and heavy exercising.

This report is surprising for many but should be taken as warning and eye opener especially to vegetarians around the world.

Vegetarians should just be careful on the amount of fruits and vegetable they ate so that they would not suffer from binge eating.

Those persons who are engage in fruit and vegetable diets should just remember that too much of everything is bad.
