“Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder usually characterized by periods of binging—or excessive overeating—followed by some kind of compensatory behavior.
People with bulimia tend to overeat after which they induce vomiting and/or purging. Some also compensate by excessive workouts or fasting. Basically, after overeating, they compensate for what they have eaten so they don’t become overweight. Bulimia has been known to affect both males and females.
