Obesity is characterised by a body weight 20% over the maximum desirable weight for body height. Conflict over how much to eat and eating alone may be a symptom of bulimia, an illness in young women characterized by binge eating usually followed by self-induced vomiting or using laxative drugs. The sufferer has a morbid fear of becoming fat, yet cannot stop herself eating.
