Eating Problems (including: Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder)

People with Bulimia experience recurrent episodes of binge eating followed by self-induced vomiting. When bingeing, the person eats much more food than usual and feels that their eating is out of control. In between episodes of bingeing, they may feel anxious or worried that they will lose control again. Preoccupation with controlling weight gain and physical appearance are common features of Bulimia. They may often lack confidence, feel very low when they think they have failed; lost control or appear out of control to others. Bulimia can lead to physical and digestive problems.

People with Anorexia believe they are very significantly overweight when they may be, in fact, underweight. They will go to great lengths to lose weight (not eating for long periods of time) and often feel intense emotional distress around weight gain and the way they look. Even when they lose weight they may not be satisfied.

People with Binge Eating Disorder may experience recurrent episodes of binge eating. They may not compensate with excessive dieting, exercise, vomiting or fasting as those with Bulimia or Anorexia. However, they also may be preoccupied with weight gain and their physical appearance. They may be overweight and suffer from the misconception in society that they are 'lazy!' Binge eating disorder and/or obesity is a psychological condition and not simply resolved by more exercise.

Psychological therapy can help sufferers of Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder and help boost self-confidence and self-esteem.
