Eating Disorder Evaluation

Anorexia Nervosa

Anorexia Nervosa is characterized by significantly limiting the types or amounts of foods eaten, resulting in weight loss that is too fast or too severe to be safe. This restricting may also be accompanied by behaviors such as self-induced vomiting, use of substances like diet pills or laxatives, and intense exercising.

Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia Nervosa is characterized by recurring episodes of eating significantly more food in a short period of time than what most people would eat under similar circumstances (i.e., binging) followed by a behavior to attempt to compensate for the food eaten (i.e., purging). Compensatory behaviors include self-induced vomiting, use of substances like diet pills or laxatives, and intense exercising.

Binge Eating Disorder

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) is characterized by recurring episodes of eating significantly more food in a short period of time than what most people would eat under similar circumstances.
