Bulimia Symptoms

Anorexia and bulimia share certain commonalities. Both are related to feelings and emotional issues and both are focused on diet and weight. But, whereas individuals with anorexia starve themselves to dangerously thin levels, those with bulimia eat large amounts of food—sometimes thousands of calories at a time—and then purge the calories out of their bodies.

Symptoms of Bulimia

If you have any bulimia symptoms, seek medical help as soon as possible. If left untreated, it may get worse and take over your life.

  • Living in fear of gaining weight
  • Feeling that you can't control your eating behavior
  • Eating until the point of discomfort or pain
  • Eating much more food in a binge episode than in a normal meal or snack
  • Forcing yourself to vomit or exercise too much
  • Misusing laxatives, diuretics or enemas after eating
  • Using dietary supplements or herbal products for weight loss
  • Being preoccupied with your body shape and weight

Help For Bulimia

It is not immediately obvious when a person is struggling with bulimia. Their weight is not low and they often seem healthy. Usually the only overt physical signs are swollen cheeks or scrapes on their fingers -- the result of induced vomiting. Dentists are often the only ones to recognize the problem, due to damage to the teeth from repeated exposure to stomach acid.

It is not unusual for a person with bulimia to want to stop. They experience a large amount of guilt and a great deal of shame regarding their behaviors. They have a total loss of control in their lives. They feel a high level of stress, yet they cannot change.
