ANOREXIA AND BULIMIA
Eating disorders are more than just going on a diet to lose weight or trying to exercise every day. They represent extremes in eating behavior and ways of thinking about eating — the diet that never ends and gradually gets more restrictive.
The most common eating disorders are anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa (usually called simply "anorexia" and "bulimia").
Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by an irrational fear of food as well as extreme, life-threatening weight loss.People with anorexia have a real fear of weight gain and a distorted view of their body size and shape. As a result, they eat very little and can become dangerously underweight. Many teens with anorexia restrict their food intake by dieting, fasting, or excessive exercise. They hardly eat at all — and the small amount of food they do eat becomes an obsession in terms of calorie counting or trying to eat as little as possible.
Bulimia is an eating disorder characterized by binge eating followed by purging. Binge eating refers to eating a large amount of food in a short amount of time. Purging refers to the attempts to get rid of the food consumed to prevent weight gain. This may be done by vomiting, taking laxatives or excessive exercise. Over time, these steps can be dangerous — both physically and emotionally. People with bulimia eat a large amount of food (often junk food) at once, usually in secret. They typically feel powerless to stop the eating and can only stop once they're too full to eat anymore, or they may have to go to extreme measures (like pouring salt all over a dessert to make it inedible) in order to get themselves to stop eating.
Although anorexia and bulimia are very similar, people with anorexia are usually very thin and underweight, but those with bulimia may be an average weight or can be overweight.
Psychotherapy is the most common treatment for anorexia and bulimia. Hospitalization may be necessary if you are dangerously malnourished or so distressed that you no longer want to live. It's important for a person with eating disorders to start treatment as early as possible to reduce the risk of serious complications.
