Body image & Bulimia Nervosa
Repeated episodes of binge eating and a pattern of using unsuitable coping mechanisms to offset the negative effects of eating, particularly weight gain.
Research is still concentrating on how Body Image Disturbance, or BID, is a fundamental diagnostic characteristic of eating disorders generally. Due to its link to body dissatisfaction, diets, and exercise-related thinking, it poses a significant risk for the emergence of these disorders.

It is stated that there are two varieties of BN: the purging type, which involves routinely using laxatives, diuretics, or enemas improperly, or self-induced vomiting; and the non-purging form, which involves routinely using fasting or excessive exercise.

Binge eating, or the uncontrollable ingestion of an extremely large amount of food in a short length of time, is one of BN's characteristics. In this disorder, binge eating often happens twice weekly.

Treatment for BN includes a thorough body image and assessment, which looks at issues like overvaluing weight and form, distorting one's body image, being dissatisfied with one's appearance, and inspecting and avoiding one's body. This entails examining the significance and effects of overvaluing shape and weight as well as the function of social comparisons that emphasize beauty.

Negative automatic ideas and faulty assumptions produced by people with BN and body dissatisfaction look like:
"I am too heavy"
"If I stop purging, I'll gain weight and people will think poorly of me"
The typical eating disorder sufferer overestimates their size more than 73% of persons without an ED do.
