ESCANDON-NAGEL, Neli. Comparison between people with overnutrition, with and without binge eating disorder. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.6, pp.1470-1476. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: Even though binge eating disorder is an eating disorder that does not occur exclusively in obese people, it is more common in this group than in subjects with normal weight. However, it has to be said that not all people with overnutrition have binge eating disorder. Objective: Identify current knowledge about the differences and similarities between people with overnutrition with and without binge eating disorder. Method: A review of scientific articles on the subject was conducted in order to achieve the above mentioned objective. Results: First, psychopathological comorbidity obesity was analyzed and then similarities and differences between the groups of interest were detected, both in general symptoms as well as in symptoms of eating behavior. Furthermore, controversial aspects were found since there is conflicting evidence regarding the intergroup comparison. Conclusion: This review concludes that within the study of obesity it is necessary to know in greater depth the characteristics of the subset of patients who also presents binge eating disorder, because these people have distinctive characteristics that can generate new knowledge that will provide more adequate comprehensive treatment needs of patients, which ultimately will enable to design more effective interventions.
