When our daughter won't get up in the morning one of our strategies is to send me in to eat at the door.
This normally brings a howl out from under the blankets.
(This does not, of course, qualify as compulsive eating. Perhaps it is some idiosyncratic family psych thing.)
The thing with compulsive eating is that if you don't eat some sorts of things, nothing bad happens, no matter how much you eat, pretty much.
I eat heaps and if I didn't drink would be really thin. But no cheesecake; anyway I have allergies.
