Bulimia nervosa, often referred to as just bulimia, is a serious eating disorder marked by a destructive cycle of binge eating followed by compensatory behaviours like self-induced vomiting, misuse of laxatives, or obsessive and excessive exercise. Those suffering from bulimia typically have an unhealthy obsession with their body shape, size, and weight, leading to intense feelings of guilt and shame after eating. In an attempt to regain feelings of control and dispel shame and guilt, they will take steps to avoid absorbing the calories they’ve consumed, often in secret.
Bulimia nervosa poses a great threat to both physical and psychological health. It causes feelings of constant agony over food and eating, unnecessary psychological stress, and can have devastating long-term impacts on your physical health.
