Fear of gaining weight or becoming overweight is ordinarily seen in those with anorexia and bulimia. A person with bulimia nervosa typically eats a substantial amount of food in a particularly short amount of time and then disposes of it. Standard ways for bulimics to eliminate food are vomiting and ingesting laxative pills. Binge eating is extremely similar to bulimia, except with binge eating, the food is not eradicated. Customarily, binge eaters have episodes where they stuff themselves full of food to the point of being uncomfortably full, as they cannot seem to control their intake of food.
People who overeat and have a food addiction eat too much food, often the wrong kinds of food, too much of the time. Binge eaters overeat every day, and they eat, not because they are hungry, but as their main way of dealing with struggles of life. Eating is a coping method.

They believe that eating disorders could possibly come from a mix of family history, social factors, and personality traits. Anorexia Nervosa People who have anorexia nervosa have a potent fear of gaining weight; due to this fear, victims of this disorder limit their food intake. These limitations can cause you to become very, very thin and eventually become very sick. Anorexia affects the body and mind. You start off dieting and then things quickly spin out of control.
Obesity is life threatening and there are many side effects associated with being obese. Obesity and being overweight is a direct symbol of the culture. Americans always want more and once they get more, Americans still are not satisfied. Moreover, look at what America eats. Americans do not eat to get something in their bellies, instead Americans eat until they are stuffed and can barely move.

Andrew Lansley once said: “We must not constantly talk about tackling obesity and warning people about the negative consequences of obesity. Instead we must be positive- positive about the fun and benefits to be had from healthy living, trying to get rid of people’s excuses for being obese by tackling the issue in a positive way.” Works Cited http://www.news-medical.net/health/What-is-Obesity.aspx http://www.healthinsite.gov.au/subtopic/symptoms-obesity http://www.webmd.com/diet/tc/obesity-treatment-overview http://www.joe.org/joe/2008december/a5.php http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/obesity/DS00314/DSECTION=risk-factors
The most heard of one is anorexia nervosa but the two other ones are orthorexia nervosa and binge eating. Anorexia is starving yourself or the fear of becoming fat. Some signs that a person might be anorexic are the person becomes very thin or loses an insane amount of weight very quickly. The person might become obsessed with eating, food, and weight control which may make them with draw from social activities that involve food. The person only eats certain foods and exercises excessively which may cause them to “water load” when they go to the doctors or any other place where they may be weighed.
Anorexia, meaning without appetite according to Random History, is an eating disorder where one fears gaining weight, so one self-starves (Rust). Bulimia, the more advanced stage of anorexia, consists of a rapid consumption of food followed by purging attempts using laxatives, excessive exercise, and self-induced vomiting (Rust). Binge-eating, on the other hand, is when one periodically goes on a long binge but does not vomit afterwards (Rust). This eventually leads to obesity. Eating disorders may cause physical and emotional complications.
Individuals with Bulimia usually overeat during meals. After eating, they usually feel guilty and punish themselves by forcing themselves to vomit, or by using laxatives, enemas, or by over exercising (Exploring Science 6th Edition Myers, David G). They also deal with depression and loneliness often. People with Bulimia have difficulty talking about their inner feelings. They also have anxiety depression, and anger (Exploring Science 6th Edition Myers, David G).
Everybody has had those days where they've felt lonely, bored, or stressed and felt the need to turn to food, nonetheless when suffering from bulimia overeating becomes a severe compulsion. Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by numerous occurrences of binge eating followed by an impulsive effort to avoid gaining weight via purging. Purging is self-induced ways to get rid of the food in your body which includes vomiting, and overuse of laxatives. There are many other ways to purge. On the other hand, Anorexia is also an eating disorder where the person has a poor image of their self, a refusal to sustain a healthy body weight as well as, a strong fear of gaining weight.
Families of sufferers also have an increased incidence of depression, obesity, substance abuse, and eating disorders. Two main eating disorders are Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. Anorexia is an eating disorder in which a person is obsessed by thoughts of an unattainable image of “perfect” thinness. This occurs by starvation and/or excessive exercise and can result in death. Bulimia is an eating disorder involving the alternation between the extremes of eating large amounts of food in a short time, and then compensating for the added calories either by vomiting or other extreme actions to avoid gaining weight.
