Eating Disorders

Anorexia Nervosa, Binge Eating, and Bulimia

Anorexia Nervosa

People who suffer from Anorexia attempt to keep their body weight much below the healthy BMI. They try to starve themselves or exercise excessively. The effects of this disease include extremely weak bones. This disease is most common in teen females.


Binge Eating

Binge Eating is when a person eats a large amount of food in a short amount of time. The effect of this is usually an overweight person, since they take in so many calories in such a small amount of time.


Bulimia

Bulimia affects girls who are conscious about their weight. People who suffer from Bulimia eat everything to get the taste out of it and immediately throw it up after. Those who are diagnosed with Bulimia are usually unhealthily underweight.
