#4} If you have more than two empty SARA LEE cheese cake boxes and a fork under your bed......you may be a BONA FIDE BINGE EATER

#5} If you ever WAKE UP in front of the fridge @ 2am and can't remember how you got there..You might be a BONA FIDE BINGE EATER.{bonus points if you were eating a jello pudding cup without a spoon}
