Starving / bingeing: starving sets you up to binge bingeing often induces you to carry out compensatory behaviors such as starving or purging the cycle continues
Dr. Andrew Kaplan
Psychiatry 12 years experience
Treatment needed: You may have bulimia. Binging can also be seen as an instance of non-suicidal self-injury and deserves further evaluation. Medical evaluation given the associated risks of these eating problems may also be warranted so do speak with your PCP about this ASAP.
