Anorexia Nervosa, or commonly just called anorexia, is a psychiatric and eating disorder that is marked by the obsessive compulsion to be thin, even to the point of self-starvation.
Bulimia Nervous is a very serious eating disorder that if not properly treated can be life-threatening. It is characterized by patterns of the binge eating of large quantities of food and then purging it by means of vomiting, laxatives or compulsive exercising. Since people suffering from bulimia are often of normal body weight, it might not be apparent that they're struggling with this disorder.
Binge eating is a newly recognized eating disorder, first officially recognized in 1992. Binge eating is defined as frequently eating large quantities of food without self control and followed by extreme shame, guilt and embarrassment. Unlike those afflicted with bulimia, people with a binge eating disorder eat do not purge their food. Frequently they will eat in secret and will continue to eat even when they're not hungry. Binge eating is not just the occasional over indulgence in food but a regular, consistent compulsion to eat until physically ill.
