This disorder is characterized by a fear of gaining weight, resulting in severe calorie restriction.
- Bulimia nervosa
This disorder is characterized by binge eating followed by purging (self-induced vomiting or the use of laxatives).
- Binge eating disorder
This disorder is characterized by eating large amounts of food in a short period of time, often to the point of feeling uncomfortably full.
