Anorexia nervosa is when food is restricted so severely that the person’s body weight and as a result their health is of concern. It is a very serious illness that requires specialist assessment and intervention. Bulimia nervosa is when people find it difficult to manage their emotions and so binge-eat to cope. They then carry out a range of behaviours to try and get rid of the food they have consumed. In binge eating disorder, people binge eat regularly causing distress.
