Eating disorders are so common in America that 1 or 2 out of every 100 students will struggle with one. The most common types of eating disorder are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa (usually called simply "anorexia" and "bulimia"). But other food-related disorders, like binge eating disorders, body image disorders, and food phobias, are showing up more frequently than they used to.
Other people with anorexia do something called binge eating and purging, where they eat a lot of food and then try to get rid of the calories by forcing themselves to vomit, using laxatives, or exercising excessively.
Bulimia is similar to anorexia. With bulimia, a person binge eats (eats a lot of food) and then tries to compensate in extreme ways, such as forced vomiting or excessive exercise, to prevent weight gain. Over time, these steps can be dangerous. To be diagnosed with bulimia, a person must be binging and purging regularly, at least twice a week for a couple of months. Binge eating is different from going to a party and "pigging out" on pizza, then deciding to go to the gym the next day and eat more healthfully. People with bulimia eat a large amount of food (often junk food) at once, usually in secret. The person typically feels powerless to stop the eating and can only stop once he or she is too full to eat any more. Most people with bulimia then purge by vomiting, but may also use laxatives or excessive exercise.

Bulimia is the repeated cycle of out-of-control eating followed by some form of purging. Bulimia is a serious eating disorder which can be fatal. The purging associated with bulimia may be self-induced vomiting, excessive use of laxatives or diuretics, or obsessive exercising.

Women suffering from bulimia may spend money excessively, abuse drugs or alcohol, or engage in chaotic relationships. Bulimia can have severe medical consequences including dental and esophageal problems, kidney damage, chemical imbalance, and an overall loss of energy and vitality. Bulimia can even prove fatal.

What Is Bulimia?
Bulimia is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating and purging. Binge eating is the uncontrolled consumption of large amounts of food in a relatively short period of time. Common methods of purging are self-induced vomiting, use of laxatives, over-exercising, fasting, or severe diets. The binge-purge cycle can range from a relatively infrequent response to stress to a debilitating pattern that absorbs most of the person's time, energy and money.

What is Bulimia Nervosa?
Bulimia Nervosa is an eating disorder marked by out of control eating followed by some form of purging. It typically accompanies a pathological fear of weight gain leading to food restriction, followed by the need to gorge in response to extreme hunger. The excessive caloric intake leads to the perceived need to purge. With bulimia, eating becomes disregulated and feels out of control.
What is a bulimic binge?
Bulimic eating episodes are called binges; binges are defined as the consumption of large amounts of food during a short period of time. In some instances, victims of bulimia cannot stop eating until they have consumed so much food that their body and skin aches. In other instances, victims of bulimia report having "binged" on as few as 5 grapes, or on three teaspoons of cottage cheese. It is my opinion that a bulimic binge has less to do with the amount of food consumed, and more to do with the sense of being out of control and virtually compelled to consume the food. The manner in which the food is consumed (generally frenzied and mindless, where the food is hardly tasted) is also important in determining a binge. Many bulimics describe a "trance-like" state that comes over them when they are binge eating. As an example of a binge episode, one young woman with bulimia found herself, at a time of great stress, compelled to drive into a 7-11 convenience store where she purchasing three cupcakes; she then proceeded to stuff them down her throat whole in an emotional frenzy in the dark and deserted alley behind the store. As far as she was concerned, her binge had begun at the moment when she drove her car up to the front door and did not finish until she had purged the cupcakes. She felt that she was in an altered state throughout the five-minute interval, and experienced a profound sense of relief from her anxiety following the binge/purge cycle. The bulimic cycle releases endorphins, brain chemicals that infuse a person with a sense of numbness or euphoria. Ironically, the relief passes in short order, only to be replaced by anxiety and guilt for the bulimic behaviors.

Bulimia is an illness defined by food binges, or recurrent episodes of significant overeating, that are accompanied by a sense of loss of control. The affected person then uses various methods such as vomiting or laxative abuse to prevent weight gain. Many, but not all, people with bulimia may also suffer from anorexia nervosa, an eating disorder involving severe, chronic weight loss that proceeds to starvation.

    • Bulimia nervosa is a serious eating disorder, in which people binge eat, and later purge - either by vomiting, laxatives, excessive exercise, or other behavior designed to offset the impact of the food. People with bulimia usually weigh within the normal range for their age and height. However, like anorexics, bulimics are usually afraid of gaining weight, want to lose weight, and feel intensely dissatisfied with their bodies.

    What are eating disorders? Eating disorders often are long-term illnesses that may require long-term treatment. In addition, eating disorders frequently occur with other mental disorders such as depression, substance abuse, and anxiety disorders (NIMH, 2002). The earlier these disorders are diagnosed and treated, the better the chances are for full recovery. This fact sheet identifies the common signs, symptoms, and treatment for three of the most common eating disorders: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder (NIMH, 2002).

    What is bulimia nervosa?
    Bulimia nervosa is a psychological illness characterized by the sufferer binging and then purging themselves of food. It is often related to both anorexia nervosa and binge-eating disorder. However, the sufferer may not always have a morbid fear of weight gain and there are those who purge without binging, a condition that has been identified (but not officially diagnosed) recently as purging disorder.
    There are many methods of purging, although self-induced vomiting is the most common. Other methods include laxative and diuretic abuse, over-exercise and periods of starvation as a means of compensating for calories consumed.
    Eating disorders, particularly anorexia and bulimia, usually affect females but the number of male anorectics is on the increase. Somebody can develop anorexia at any age, in any place and in any situation.
    Facts and statistics for bulimia

    Causes of bulimia nervosa
    As with other eating disorders, there is no pre-determined cause of bulimia and the reasons for the onset of the disorder may vary from person to person. Is it common for anorectics to progress to bulima. The concept of trying keep control is not as strong with bulimia as anorexia (although there are still some elements of it). Bulimia is much more spontaneous illness. Because of this, perhaps it is not surprising that suicide attempts are common among bulimics.

    advertisement Welcome to the Beat Bulimia website. I'm Judith Asner, M.S.W. I specialize in treating people suffering from eating disorders, especially bulimia nervosa. Bulimia (bulimia nervosa) is defined as periods of uncontrolled eating. The person eats anywhere up to 10,000 calories in a sitting. The binge eating is followed by purging behaviors, i.e., vomiting, laxatives, excessive exercise or sleep. Bulimia is not a pretty disease. It does not bring the admiration of peers, as starving does. Writer's have spoken about "the moral superiority" of anorexia nervosa. Being able to starve is an "art" because it involves self-control. One feels so morally superior! Society admires starving women. Not so with purging out-of-control women! There is no moral superiority in throwing up your food after stuffing yourself. But all-in-all, it is a way of avoiding feelings by focusing on food and thinness. Therefore, many people with this illness hide in shame. On the Beat Bulimia site, we'll be talking about the causes of bulimia, what you need to do to recover from bulimia, and how your family and friends can help. Our goal here is to bring bulimics out of hiding and form a virtual community where we can help each other.

    Bulimia Nervosa
    Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by episodes of bingeing and purging. A large percentage of both women and men are developing bulimia or bulimic tendencies, though women account for the majority of sufferers. If you are bulimic or know someone who is, seek treatment as soon as possible. Bulimia can be cured, especially if it is caught early. What is Bulimia Nervosa?
    Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder that causes numerous psychological and physical issues. First diagnosed in the 1980s, bulimia was thought to be part of anorexia . However, this eating disorder differs from anorexia in that it involves a binge-purge cycle. Sufferers of bulimia will eat large amounts of food in a short time and then, due to feelings of extreme guilt and shame, will attempt to purge the food from their body. Unlike anorexics, most bulimics are aware that they have an eating disorder. They will often go unnoticed though because they tend to hide their disorder. Additionally, bulimics can be of normal weight, underweight, or overweight, making it even more difficult to notice the disorder. Who is Affected by Bulimia?

      Exercise Bulimia, the new eating disorder
      By Paige Waehner , Updated: March 24, 2006 Health's Disease and Condition content is reviewed by our Medical Review Board Though many of us worry about getting enough exercise, there is such a thing as too much exercise. Regular exercise is a good thing, but more is not always better and in some cases, compulsive exercise can be just as dangerous as eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia. Compulsive exercise is just another tool some people use to purge their body of calories, much like a bulimic who binges and purges. In fact, there's even a name for it: Exercise Bulimia. Exercise Bulimia Exercise bulimia is hard to diagnose since everyone talks about how great it is to exercise. If you do more, isn't that good? Not if you're taking it too far. If you use exercise to purge or compensate for eating binges (or just regular eating), you could be suffering from exercise bulimia. Of course, knowing how much exercise is too much is something you may end up learning the hard way, but if you pay attention to your body, there are warning signs that you've taken exercise to the max.

    Also see: Atypical eating disorders in males and Anorexia in males
    Bulimia has been reported in male patients (38,42,44,69). Herzog et al. (38) noted an incidence in males of approximately four to five percent of a total population of bulimic patients. Gwirtsman found that ten to 13 percent of male students met DSMIII criteria for bulimia. The mean age of onset ranged fro 21 (38) to 24 (42) years. Duration of illness prior to treatment ranged from six years (42) to 7.4 years (38). This duration is significantly longer than the 4.2 years' duration of illness prior to treatment for bulimic females (38). Approximately two-thirds of bulimic males had a history of being overweight as compared to one-third of bulimic females. Socioeconomic classes were equally distributed in one series (38). Mitchell's (42) study noted that patients were employed, that they were functioning well, and that eleven of twelve were married. The clinical manifestations of male bulimia are comparable to female bulimia. Preoccupation with weight control and associations with the cultural pressures of professional life regarding personal performance (especially in sports, fashion, and musci) have been related to the onset of bulimia in some male patients (44).
