    Anorexia is characterised by:
    Extreme concerns about weight
    Intense fear of gaining weight or becoming fat
    Deliberate maintenance of a very low body weight
    Often absent menstrual cycles

    People with anorexia have an intense desire for weight loss and to be thin (often unhealthily so). Although people with anorexia are usually underweight, they generally believe that they are "fat."
    Food, weight and appearance often become the main focus for someone who has anorexia. Concentrating on food and weight becomes a (conscious or unconscious) way of dealing with or managing intense emotions or emotional difficulties that they are experiencing.
    Both males and females, from any social or economic background, can suffer from anorexia. Although the disorder usually begins in the late teenage years it can manifest at any age, and its onset is often associated with a stressful event or a period of dieting.

    Some of the common signs of anorexia may be:
    Being afraid of putting on weight
    Calorie counting and/or obsessively avoiding of high fat food
    Marked weight loss
    Not wanting to eat
    Being hungry but not wanting to admit it
    Over exercising
    Obsessive weighing
    Getting cold easily
    Irregular (or absent) menstrual cycles
    Feeling like they are too fat even though they may be very thin
    Nails and hair become brittle
    Dry and yellow skin
    Preference to eating alone or only eating around other people
    Feeling depressed and irritable
    Lanugo, or fine body hair, on the trunk and face

    If you are experiencing a number of these things, it may be helpful to talk with someone you trust, like a family member, teacher, psychologist or local doctor.
    Check out your local phone book or to find out details of people you can approach for assistance in your local area. Or, you can also ask a doctor to refer you to someone who can help you.

    What is Bulimia?
    Bulimia Nervosa is a type of eating disorder. Eating disorders is the term used to describe a group of illnesses where someone has a distorted view of body image and extreme disturbances in eating behaviour. Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder are all different types of eating disorders. You may want to check out the factsheets on the right hand side of the page for more information on other eating disorders.
    People experiencing bulimia go on regular eating "binges", which involves consuming large amounts of food in relatively discrete periods of time whilst accompanied by feelings of being out of control of one's food intake. The binge eating is usually followed by feelings of guilt and anxiety about becoming fat and this results in a need to get rid of the food.

    Common ways of getting rid of food may include:
    Over exercising to burn the calories
    "Throwing up"
    Taking laxatives, diuretics or diet pills
    Not eating for several days after the binge.
    Bingeing may be used as a way of coping with anger, depression, stress and sadness.
    Some of the common signs of bulimia may be:
    Eating unusually large amounts of food
    Being secretive about what is eaten and when
    Visiting the bathroom after eating
    Over exercising
    Being very critical of one's self
    Moody
    Depression
    Regularly tired/lacking energy
    Sore throat
    Decaying teeth

    If you are experiencing a number of these things, it may be helpful to go and talk with someone you trust like a family member, teacher, counsellor or local doctor. Check out the Help Near You section or your local phone book to find a counsellor or doctor in your area.

    What is Binge Eating Disorder?
    Most people overeat every now and again and it is not uncommon to occasionally feel as though we have eaten more than we should have. However, regularly consuming large amounts of food when you are not feeling hungry, usually to the point of feeling overly full, and at a much faster rate than usual is known as binge eating disorder. Binge eating disorder is similar to bulimia except that the person does not get rid of the food after eating.

    Some of the characteristics of binge eating include:
    Feeling that eating is out of control
    Eating what most people would consider to be a large amount of food
    Eating to the point of feeling uncomfortable
    Eating large amounts of food, even when you are not really hungry
    Being secretive about what is eaten and when
    Being embarrassed by the amount of food eaten
    Feeling disgusted, depressed or guilty about overeating.
    If you think you do one or a number of these things, you may want to speak to someone like a doctor, nutritionist psychologist or counsellor.
