Binge eating disorder is when people experience a compulsion and are unable to inhibit to eat extra food or more food in a short space of time. So usually, it will involve eating faster and larger quantities. There is a difference between subjective and objective bingeing, and they could say, they can be both. So, people might feel that they’re bingeing, but objectively that they may not be. But, usually, with binge eating there is overeating but without any way of compensating for it, so no exercise or purging.
