A common characteristic of different forms of eating disorders is the excessive influence of body image and weight in an individual’s self-evaluation, as well as irregular or chaotic patterns of food intake. Binge eating is a separate eating disorder that involves the ingestion of an unusually large amount of food in a short period, followed by an intense sense of loss of control. Past research has shown the importance of personal factors in explaining binge eating. The aim of this study was to examine the role of emotional regulation and control, the level of negative urgency, self-criticisms and self-reassurance, and body mass index in explaining binge eating. The research was conducted on a sample of 302 girls, the average age was 22 years (SD=2.70), and the data were collected using an on-line questionnaire. Hierarchical regression analysis was used to determine separate contributions of individual groups of personal factors explaining binge eating in girls. The level of negative urgency and hated self, as a dimension of self-criticism, were significant individual factors behind binge eating. In conclusion, the results indicate that girls with a higher level of negative urgency and higher level of hated self are more likely to binge eat, and personal factors selected in this study explained 45.6% of binge eating variance.
