What is Bulimia Nervosa?
Bulimia Nervosa (also known as Bulimia) is an eating disorder characterized by periods of excessive food consumption (food binges) followed by purges. Purges are behaviors such as vomiting, taking laxatives, intense exercise, or fasting that are intended to prevent future weight gain. During a binge, an individual's eating may feel out of control, and they may eat much past the point where they would ordinarily feel full.
Is Bulimia Curable?
Bulimia is a highly complicated eating condition, and treating it is more complicated than simply establishing a more positive connection with food. It is estimated that over 1 million Canadians suffer from an eating disorder, which can have a devastating influence on other elements of your life.
