Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Bulimia. Young woman suffering from bulimia gorges herself on a rich sweet cake, while sitting at a toilet. She will then force herself to vomit. 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. Treatment usually involves supervision of the sufferers eating habits, and psychotherapy.
