I went with "no" because it might be harmful to our bodies, but so is practically every indulgence. "Self-harm" seems too extreme to me where the desire actually is to deliberately hurt yourself.
I could put it this way. For people who are prone to overeat a lot, if they had a magic way to erase all the negative health effects of doing that, I doubt most would pass it up and say, "No, I'm good. I'm actually deliberately trying to damage my body."

It only becomes self-harm if done regularly and it begins to affect someone's health. If done for emotional reasons that culminate in someone eating instead of dealing with the issues that may be causing them to eat when they don't need to, then that would be something that would need to be looked into and dealt with. However, generally, it only becomes self-harm over a long period of time. If done only every once in awhile, there is no harm in it.

It's more like a food obsession than self harm. U do it because you're used to eating too much and your stomach is also used to all the food u consume. So it may be harder to eat less
