Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating
Eating disorders are abnormal eating habits that can threaten your health or even your life. They include:
Anorexia nervosa: Individuals believe they are fat even when they’re dangerously thin and restrict their eating to the point of starvation.
Bulimia nervosa: Individuals eat excessive amounts of food, then purge by making themselves vomit or using laxatives.
Binge eating: Individuals have out-of-control eating patterns, but do not purge.
