What are the symptoms of bulimia?

ANSWER

This eating disorder gives you a distorted picture of your body. Some of your bulimia symptoms may be similar to those of anorexia. For example, you may fear gaining weight, and always want to lose weight. But people with bulimia usually are less worried about their weight as those with anorexia may be.
