Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder qualified by commonplace episodes of binge eating, followed by frenzied efforts to avoid putting on weight.
If you’re fighting with bulimia, life is a ceaseless battle between the want to slim down or remain thin and the overpowering obsession to binge eat.
You don’t prefer to binge—you understand you’ll feel guilty and ashamed subsequently—but again and again you buckle under. During an average binge, you might devour from 3,000 to 5,000 calories in a single short hour.
We have all been there: turning to the refrigerator if feeling lonely or bored or indulging in seconds or thirds if strained. But if you suffer from bulimia, the from time to time urge to overeat is more like an obsession.
And rather than eating sensibly to make up for it, you penalize yourself by purging, fasting, or exercising to do away with the calories.
You might have found how easily you are able to get rid of the food ingested during a "binge" by vomiting or taking diet pills or laxatives.
The utilization of these purging techniques may become more frequent as bulimia and addiction to dieting supplements and laxatives take over.
