Perhaps you are asking about binge eating disorder.  According to research criteria, binge-eating disorder is defined as eating an amount of food in a discrete period of time that is definitely larger than most people would eat in a similar period of time under similar circumstances. These episodes occur at least twice a week for at least six months. Episodes of binge eating are associated with a lack of control and with distress over the eating. According to one study this disorder involves about 3.5% of American population. Yes this disorder is more of a psychological origin as Cognitive-behavior therapy or CBT is being used to treat such cases.
