"...bulimia nervosa in females stems from a failure to develop an adequate sense of self because of a conflict-ridden mother-daughter relationship. Food becomes a symbol of this failed relationship. The daughter's binging and purging represent the conflict between the need for the mother and the desire to reject her."

I believe I came across this statement in an extract from a Canadian psychology journal and I'm interested in people's thoughts on the proposal. I find this to fit really well for myself, however, I realise that it may be completely unfitting for others... what do you think?
