Wait, what? Overeating can be a good thing? Have I gone off the deep end? I know what you're thinking, "Ummm, overeating is NOT a good thing. I hate myself after a binge, I have no self-control and feel disgusting."
Disclaimer: I am not talking about the occasional, "Oh, I ate too much" overeating. I'm talking about the frenetic, compulsive, holy-shit-I-just-ate-an-entire-gallon-of-ice cream kind of overeating. Or the stuffing-your-face-with-Wheat-Thin-after-Wheat-Thin-until-the-box-is-gone type of episodes.
