I think I have some type of bulimia, but I'm not sure. I don't want to have to go get medical opinions unless I'm 100% that something is wrong. I was talking to somebody and they said that purging can be more than simply vomiting and I know that, but is excessive exercise or starving/limiting to low calories after binging considered purging?

      Yes that’s bulimia. Over exercise is a form of purging and idk why more people don’t know that. If you binge and over exercise regularly it’s bulimia

      When limiting caloric intake (especially if it is fasting) after a binge, I think it definitely sounds like bulimia. If not, it could be EDNOS. Regardless, I think treatment should definitely be sought after. I hope everything goes well for you, stay strong and stay safe <3

      Over exercise is a form of purging. Purging is any activity used to try and make up for caloric intake is my understanding. But that aside you do likely have an eating disorder.

      I don't know, but I do binge and then over exercise and limit my calories for awhile after binging. I'm not really sure.
