Bulimia Nervosa

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:

  1. Do you ever eat until you feel sick?
  2. Do you feel guilty, ashamed or depressed after you eat?
  3. Do you forcefully vomit right after eating?
  4. 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).?
  5. Do you feel uncomfortable eating around others?
  6. Do you create lifestyle schedules or rituals to make time for binge-and-purge sessions?
  7. Do you show extreme concern with body weight and shape?
  8. Do you frequently check in the mirror for perceived flaws in appearance?
