Hmmm, the usual "suspects" have already been covered, but I'm wondering when was the last time you went in to your doctor for a check-up and had a full vitamin / mineral / electrolyte panel done with your bloodwork?
I have never been either an "emotional" or "binge" eater, but last year found myself almost insatiable. Veggies are some of my favourite foods, and I was over-eating spinach, broccoli, and carrots. Cereal, on the other hand, is not a favourite at all, yet I was over-eating it as well. When I went in for my annual check-up, I found out that I was severely deficient in iron, folate, and Vitamin D. Surprise, surprise --- the foods that I was "binging" on are all either naturally high in iron and folate, or, in the case of the cereal, had those added.
If this is unusual behaviour for you, then you really might want to consider a visit to the doctor to see if there might be a deficiency causing your body to look for "more".

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
