    If it's done in an excessive manner, then yes.

    If you binge then purge, yes. But binge eating is a disorder in itself.

    There are many types of eating disorders.

    Binge Eating Disorder and Compulsive Over Eating are both genuine eating disorders. They are different from Bulimia though, which is more about compensatory behaviour.

    As you can see, there are many. I have used that site just to show the variety, I don't know the site so pleas ebe creful when using it.

    If you are worried about your eating habits please talk to someone who could potentially help.

    ETA, I much prefer B-Eat

    I would have to say yes on this matter. Excessive eating is considered as an eating disorder as no matter what happens, you eat, happy or sad, you eat. That shouldn’t be happening and I advise you to reduce the meals taken and the time you spend on eating. If you do want snacks, go for healthy ones, so that excessive eating won’t harm your body. Try dried fruits, or even fruits and things that are healthy for you.
