Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating followed by compensatory behaviors, or "purging". Types of purging include self-induced vomiting, fasting, overexercising, or the abuse of laxatives, enemas, or diuretics.

Because suffers from bulimia tend to be an average weight, this disorder tends be more difficult to diagnose than other eating disorders.

This disorder occurs among some who suffer from anorexia.
