Types of eating dis.: Eating disorders are typically classified into 3 main categories - anorexia (food restriction), bulimia (bingeing and purging), binge eating disorder (bingeing). In addition to these big categories, there is something called subclinical eating disorders where the individual engages in unhealthy eating/purging/exercising patterns that may not fit neatly into one of the 3 categories.
