In brief: Same Symptoms
Bulimia is characterized by the intake of large amounts of food (binge eating) followed by the use of vomiting, laxatives, or other means to try to eliminate this food.
In an athlete there would be this same type of cycle, but it would be reasonable to expect a particular emphasis on the use of exercise to eliminate calories.
