So I got my health book for class in the mail today and I was flipping through it and came across the chapter about weight management. Naturally, I flipped to the page about eating disorders. I looked up bulimia and the definition reads "Bulimia nervosa[...]involves frequent bouts of binge eating followed by purging, laxative abuse, or excessive exercise." Well, I figure I have bulimia now rather than just a binge eating disorder? Because under BED it reads that individuals with BED "do not purge or take other excessive measures to lsoe the weight they gain." I've tried to purge, but I can't physically do it, so I take laxatives and I do resort to intense exercising after a binge. I actually just recently took 5 laxatives and have been exercising for the past hour. It's great, really.
