Binging is in the mind of the Drill Sgt.

A binge, according to the current medical/psychiatric model, is when someone eats more than twice what a “normal” person would eat in one sitting. I disagree with this definition. In my personal and professional experience, a binge can be two boxes of Kraft Dinner; a container of ice cream; two hot dogs; one hot dog; two crackers; an apple; a bite of a chocolate bar or the whole damn box of chocolate bars!

It doesn’t matter how much it is in terms of quantity. What matters is how your Drill Sgt. perceives it. The same amount of ice cream that was perfectly acceptable on Monday can be completely unacceptable on Tuesday for a variety of bogus Drill St. reasons.
