Types of Eating Disorders
Anorexia Nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder that involves self-starvation and excessive weight loss.
Bulimia Nervosa is a serious, potentially life-threatening eating disorder that involves a cycle of binge eating (eating lots of food in a short period of time), feelings of regret, and then behaviors such as self-induced vomiting designed to undo or make up for the effects of binge eating.
Binge Eating Disorder
Binge Eating Disorder is an eating disorder characterized by periods of extreme over-eating, but not followed by purging behaviors as in most cases of bulimia.
