Bulimia is an emotional eating disorder that stems from a background of psychological and mental health challenges. Individuals who suffer from bulimia use both food and their behaviors surrounding food as a means of control over their emotional status. Common characteristics that are involved with bulimia include bouts of overeating which are then followed by periods of binging and purging. Learning how to control food intake as well as emotional and physical responses is vital to a person’s well-being.
