Bulimia Treatment

Counseling by Nicole Leitner, MA, LPC in Houston, TX

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by a cycle of binging and compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting designed to undo or compensate for the effects of binge eating.

Symptoms of Bulimia

  • Regular intake of large amounts of food accompanied by a sense of loss of control over eating             behavior. 
  • Regular use of inappropriate compensatory behaviors such as self-induced vomiting, laxative or diuretic abuse, fasting, and/or obsessive or compulsive exercise.
  • Extreme concern with body weight and shape.

Signs That Professional Treatment is Needed

  • Evidence of binge eating, including disappearance of large amounts of food in short periods of time or         finding wrappers and containers indicating the consumption of large amounts of food.
  • Evidence of purging behaviors, including frequent trips to the bathroom after meals, signs and/or                  smells of vomiting, presence of wrappers or packages of laxatives or diuretics.
  • Excessive, rigid exercise regimen despite weather, fatigue, illness, or injury.
  • Unusual swelling of the cheeks or jaw area.
  • Calluses on the back of the hands and knuckles from self-induced vomiting.
  • Discoloration or staining of the teeth.
  • Creation of lifestyle schedules or rituals to make time for binge-and-purge sessions.
  • Withdrawal from friends and activities.
  • Behaviors and attitudes indicating that weight loss, dieting, and control of food are becoming primary            concerns.
