Two aspects must be observed. - E.g. Brian has already eaten a hamburger with four patties, a chocolate shake, and an order of French fries. He is now eating a second order of French fries, uncontrollably shoving handfuls of them in his mouth. - eating an amount of food larger than most people would eat during a certain period (for example, two hours) as well as feeling a lack of control over what and how much one is eating
I afford myself a daily diet of 800 calories. At whatever point in the day I have eaten over 600 calories, I always make myself vomit. Usually, this takes place in the afternoon after I have let myself have half a piece of string cheese. - making herself vomit every day after eating only 600 calories is an example of this type of behaviour
can appear to others as emaciated, frail, or starved. - the person with the disorder sees himself or herself as still needing to lose weight (usually in certain areas). - likely continue at all costs and cause the person to rationalize that restrictive eating habits, excessive exercise, or binge eating/purging is necessary out of fear of becoming obese
