The first time I experienced what I’d now refer to as binge eating, I was about six years old. My mum would keep Penguin bars in the cupboard for my school lunchbox, and when she wasn’t around I would sneak into the kitchen, grab a pack of eight and scurry back to my room to eat them all in quick succession, shoving the wrappers behind my dresser or inside my sock drawer.
