In brief: Bulimia

Involves binge eating (generally twice what you would normally eat) quickly, followed by guilt and a need to get rid of the weight though self induced vomiting, excessive exercise, use of laxatives, diuretics or misusing other medication.
On average, these episodes occur twice weekly.

In brief: Yes

Symptoms of bulimia nervosa include having strong urge to eat large amounts of food in one setting to the point of feeling excessively full.
This then leads to feelings of excessive guilt over the act and a tendency to purge the food, either by inducing vomiting or diarrhea with laxatives. Often depression and anxiety are present too.
