Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by a cycle of binge eating and compensatory behaviors to prevent weight gain. People with bulimia often consume large amounts of food in a discrete period, feeling a lack of control during these episodes. Following a binge, they might engage in compensatory actions such as self-induced vomiting, misuse of laxatives or diuretics, fasting, or excessive exercise. This cycle often leads to feelings of guilt, shame, and distress. It's a complex mental health condition that can have serious physical and emotional consequences if left untreated.
