Bulimia nervosa is a serious eating disorder which is characterized by uncontrolled episodes of eating large amounts of food in a short time (binging), which is followed by vomiting, the use of laxatives or excessive exercise (purging) to get rid of the food again and to stop themselves from gaining weight.
