3. Not Bulimia
While binge eating can be a very serious symptom of bulimia, not all binge eaters are bulimic. Those who suffer from bulimia feed the need to rid their body of the calories that they consumed by vomiting. Binge eaters may still experience feelings of regret and disgust after a bingeing session, as do bulimics, but no attempt is made to physically remove the food from the body.
