Definitions of eating disorders
The short definition of Bulimia is an eating disorder where a person needs to engage in an unhealthy food ritual involving binging on food and then purging themselves (induced vomiting, basically throwing it up). As with Anorexia Nervosa it can and does cause serious mental and physical problems to the sufferer.
A disorder that is psycho-physiological (mental/mind and body) in nature. It mostly occurs at the age of 14-26 in young women, but men and people of all ages can and be and are affected. It is characterised by severe weight loss, a fear bordering on terror of becoming obese, a completely distorted self-image (both body image and self concept) and a dangerous and persistent unwillingness to eat that can result in death.
It is often accompanied by self-induced vomiting, excessive exercise, malnutrition, amenorrhea, and other physiological changes.
In a very short period of time the binger consumes large amounts of food, as with symptoms of bulimia. These episodes are frequent and uncontrolled, followed by feelings of extreme distress or disturbance both after and during a binge. However it is fundamentally different from Bulimia in that there are no regular attempts to induce vomiting, fasting or over exercising to make up for the binges.
Obesity describes a person with a high degree of body fat and is who is very overweight. They are often misunderstood by others and feels very conscious when in public. A persons weight is assessed using a scale called the Body Mass Index (BMI).
