Bulimia Nervosa

[1] Do you eat more food in a binge than most people would eat in the same amount of time? Yes, I average from 800-1500 calories in a binge episode. The most I've ever eaten is 2500 calories in one sitting
[2] Do you lose control during the binge episode? Most definitely
[3] Have you binged and compensated(purge/lax/fast/excessive exercise) at least twice a week, every week, for three months? Yes. I've been actively binging and purging or fasting, mostly purging on an average of 3-6 days a week, sometimes twice a day since January of 2004
[4] Is your self-worth based on how you look or weigh? Yes, and it has been for as long as I can remember.

[5a] Purging type - does your compensation regularly involve vomiting, laxative abuse, diuretics, or enemas? Yes, I regularly purge after a binge episode. I've tried laxatives but they were too messy.
