Best Answer


Eating disorders such as binge-eating are influenced by multiple factors:

- behavior, emotions, and attitudes surrounding weight, body appearance and food issues.

- Fashion magazines, toys, media, society, fashion, friends, and spirituality impact the way we see ourselves, how we think of food and how these two factors interact.

- We are given unrealistic images and expectations (a 6 foot model weighing 105 pounds + eating a 1,000+ calorie burger -- these images contradict each other).

How we process these factors(this can be influenced by family history) can lead to binge-eating.
