Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Bulimia. Young woman kneels at a toilet whilst forcing herself to vomit. A hand with downwardly pointing thumb may abstractly depict the force with which bulimia rules the life of the sufferer. Bulimia is an illness in young women characterized by compulsive overeating in private, usually followed by self-induced vomiting or use of laxative drugs. The sufferer has a morbid fear of becoming fat, yet cannot stop herself from eating. Often the patient has had anorexia nervosa, becoming thin through dieting and then developing a craving for food. Women with bulimia may be of normal weight.
