  • Keeping weight low by dieting or avoiding food, vomiting, using laxatives or excessively exercising.
  • Anorexia is often connected to feelings of low self esteem, intense distress and negative self image.
  • Eating large amounts of food on one go (bingeing) and then getting rid of it through vomiting, using laxatives or using diuretics (purging)
  • Usually people hide this behaviour pattern from others and their weight is often in a healthy range.
  • Eating large amounts of food, often to manage feelings and emotional problems
  • Feeling like you are unable to stop eating (can also be referred to as compulsive eating)
