In brief: Weight concern

"eating disorders" encompass a wide range of conditions and behaviors, but are almost always characterized by excessive weight concern and using unhealthy or maladaptive methods to control weight.
Anorexia nervosa is charactized by low weight and restricting, whereas bulimia nervosa is characterized by binging then a behavior in response to the binge (ie vomiting).
