• Having a strong desire to eat even when you are not hungry.
• Continuing to eat even after hunger has been satisfied.
• Having a sense of urgency about eating.
• Eating large amounts of food or highly caloric foods in a short period of time.
• Continuing to eat and not being aware that you are still eating.

Diabetes and Lactose Intolerance. Lactose intolerance means the body cannot easily digest lactose, a type of natural sugar found in milk and dairy products. This is not the same thing as a food allergy to milk. #diabetes #lactoseintolerance http://www.thediabeticfriend.org/diabetes-and-lactose-intolerance
