Bulimia is a very serious type of eating disorder that most often affects young teenage girls. They will often eat large meals, called binging, and then self-induce vomiting, called purging. I’m not sure if there’s anything physically wrong with these girls- as far as I know, it’s more of a mental thing that gets them started, which eventually leads to many, many physical problems. These types of girls often seem to be depressed and have low self-esteem issues, and should consider seeking professional help to overcome their disorder.

Bulimia nervosa is also known as binge-purge syndrome. This is an eating disorder which usually affects young women of normal weight. It is characterized by frequent episodes of grossly exaggerated food intake (binging), usually after a period of time during which food intake is restricted, followed by self-induced vomiting (purging) to avoid weight gain. A lot of bulimics suffer from depression or an anxiety disorder, making it a mental health issue. In fact, a group of anti-depressants called SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are commonly used in treating this disorder. Sometimes it's a dentist who first suspects that someone is bulimic because the stomach acid which is brought up when vomiting occurs erodes the teeth, especially the backs of the teeth.

That is when you have a eating disorder where you hide food and binge eat then either force yourself or not to throw up everything you eat. In my opinion it is a mental health issue and should be treated very seriously.

It is when you binge eat and then induce vomiting... even worse than anorexia because it dammages the digestive system
