Do I have an eating disorder? What are the typical signs of anorexia and bulimia? What are the symptoms of eating disorders?


Here are some factors which may indicate an eating disorder, especially when several of those factors are present:

  • An excessive fear of becoming fat.
  • Feels a social pressure to change body weight. More.
  • Avoids eating despite hunger.
  • Eats without being able to stop.
  • Can not recognize true physical hunger. More.
  • Vomiting after binge-eating. More.
  • Exaggerated interest in healthy living, eating and exercise. More.
  • Abnormally thin or overweight. More.

There are tests, which you can take yourself to test if you have an eating disorder. Some of them are available on the Internet. Two wellknown tests are Q-EDD and EAT-.

The main difference between Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa is the body weight. If the body weight, measured as BMI, is less than 17.5, a person is classified as Anorexia even if the other symptoms are the same as for Bulimia.
