In Anorexia Nervosa, a person might be so preoccupied with being slim that she/he might starve herself/himself to achieve weight loss. Anorexia is characterized by an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of one’s own body. People with anorexia place a high value on controlling their weight and shape, using extreme efforts that tend to significantly interfere with their day to day functioning. This could have severe consequences and, in women, lead to disturbance in the menstrual cycle.  Although the disorder most frequently begins during adolescence, an increasing number of children and older adults are also being diagnosed with anorexia.

Worried that you  might have Anorexia Nervosa:

  1. Are you excessively fearful about gaining weight?
  2. Do you excessively restrict your calorie intake in spite of being thin/ underweight?
  3. Do you pretend to eat or lie about eating?
  4. Do you exercise compulsively or take laxatives?
  5. Do you deny feeling hungry?
  6. Are you excessively concerned about eating in public?
  7. Have you experienced dramatic weight loss?
  8. Do you have strange or secretive food rituals?

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?
