Describe the features of bulimia nervosa.?
Binging and Purging
Bulimia nervosa is defined as bingeing (eating more than a typical person would in a similar situation), then using a compensatory behavior (ie vomiting, excessive exercise, laxative abuse) in an attempt to prevent weight gain from the binge.
Bulimics can be any size, though typically are normal or slightly overweight.. Either way, self image is unduly influenced by weight.
