What is meant by the term "binge"?

Abstract:
Systematic examination of the use of the word "binge" by 243 young women revealed discrepancies between the lay and technical uses of the term; the young women placed great emphasis on loss of control and less on the quantity eaten. These discrepancies indicate that the term "binge" should be clearly defined in clinical practice.
