Anorexia is Greek for "without appetite" and Bulimia is Greek for "ravenous hunger." They are behaviors characterized by under eating and overeating. If you under eat to the point of risking your life, you are called Anorexic. If you overeat and compensate (by excessive exercise or purging) you are called Bulimic. If you overeat and do nothing to compensate, you become overweight. If you are overweight to the point of damaging your body, you are called obese. All of these behaviors are serious problems. Whether they are rooted in genetics, family history, or current emotional stresses, you need to change what you are doing with food. Please get some help today. The world is a better place with you than without you.
