In Bulimia Nervosa, a person tends to have an inconsistent pattern of eating. Sometimes the person overeats so much that exceeds his/her normal amount (binge-eating) and at other times, the person tries to compensate his over-eating to prevent weight gain by engaging in behaviours such as self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, fasting or using laxative and diuretics. The nutritional deficiency caused by eating disorders can have a negative impact on vital organs or have life-threatening consequences.
Worried that you might have Bulimia Nervosa:
- Do you ever eat until you feel sick?
- Do you feel guilty, ashamed or depressed after you eat?
- Do you forcefully vomit right after eating?
- Do you experience a sense of lack of control over eating during the episode (e.g. a feeling that one cannot stop eating or control what or how much one is eating).?
- Do you feel uncomfortable eating around others?
- Do you create lifestyle schedules or rituals to make time for binge-and-purge sessions?
- Do you show extreme concern with body weight and shape?
- Do you frequently check in the mirror for perceived flaws in appearance?
