I think that a compulsive eater is someone who eats too often and can't stop.
You'll have to give us some more information: How much do you weigh and what is your height? How many hours later do you start getting hungry again? What do you eat? Do you stop when you're full or do you keep going? Why do you let yourself starve?
I started on 05/30/10 at 253. After almost 4 years and many, many breaks, I reached 152 on 03/19/14. Now I'm trying to reach 130.
