One of the most important symptoms of bulimia is a binge eating, which occurs immediately after forced purging or vomiting. Binge eating actually refers to a condition when a person forces himself to eat too much at a single time. The person eats too much not because of the hunger, but because of some stress, depression or any other episode related to self esteem. Binging brings along with it a feeling of loss of control which is immediately reversed with a feeling of calmness afterwards. Such a feeling remains for a very short term and thereafter the same person starts hating himself. This actually a cycle that occurs repeatedly.
