What is Bulimia?
Bulimia is an eating disorder that often begins during the teenage years, and includes a cycle of bingeing and compensatory behaviors, sometimes referred to as purging. These compensatory behaviors, which can include self-induced vomiting, are designed to reduce or undo the effects of the bingeing.
