Bulimia nervosa is a severe and potentially fatal eating disorder. Bulimics may binge eat a large amount of food without control and then purge, attempting to get rid of the extra calories in an unhealthy way. People with Bulimia may employ various techniques to burn calories and avoid weight gain.

Alternatively, you can use other methods to burn calories and avoid weight gain, such as fasting, strict dieting, or excessive exercise.
