This chapter examines the learned nature of binge eating disorder characterized by recurrent binge eating with marked stress regarding binge eating but without the characteristic compensatory features of bulimia nervosa. It describes two models of binge eating, the cognitive model and the model of learned anticipatory responses and discusses empirical data pertaining to each of the models. It also investigates how binge eating can be treated effectively.

Keywords:   binge eating, bulimia nervosa, cognitive model, learned anticipatory responses, eating disorder
