People tend to eat when overcome with feelings of stress, boredom, or even loneliness. But they have the ability to stop. However, people suffering from Bulimia don’t have a choice. Overeating is a compulsion in this disorder. Instead of eating proper meals after overeating, the patients feel guilty and punish themselves. They do this by purging, fasting, exercising, or even dieting to get rid of the extra calories they gained. The continuous cycle of binging and purging effects the patient’s emotion and physical health. You must note that this cycle can break. Patients should start undergoing treatment to develop a healthy appetite and to overcome feelings of guilt, anxiety and shame.
