Have you ever start eating and not being able to stop until you eat everything you find in the refrigerator or pantry? After you feel guilty about what you did and try to remedy causing you vomiting?

You may suffer from an eating disorder, called bulimia.

The sufferer feeds compulsively. Before eating he/she perceives a feeling of anxiety and no appetite, causing he/she to consume any food to have on hand and is easily ingestible, although he/she doesn’t like, but the important thing is that it can be gobbled up quickly and secretly.

Immediately after eating a lot, those who suffer from bulimia feel guilty and try to “remedy” by inducing vomiting or using laxatives to expel all that they ate.

Moreover, often, another typical behavior of someone who is suffering from this disease can be to conduct extremely vigorous exercise in order to burn off the calories eaten.
