Listen as Dr. Berkus explains what a compulsive over eating self test is.

Dr. Berkus:
A self-test might be, you know, we have various things that we can ask patients and one, I think most people know if they are eating health or if they are not, and people that eat compulsively will say they are not eating out of hunger. So one of the questions I ask themselves, “Am I eating right now because I am hungry?”

Most of the time they will find that they are eating because they are lonely; they are angry; they are bored; they are tired. They are lonely in the sense of feeling a void inside and a lot of times they are eating to fill that void.
