  • Skipping meals on a regular basis.
  • Dizziness and potentially fainting.
  • Shifting food around on your plate so it looks like you’ve eaten more than you have.
  • Feeling guilty, ashamed, and disgusted after eating too much or after eating the “wrong” foods.
  • Eating large portions of food and being unable to control yourself or extreme food restriction.
  • Sudden weight loss or weight gain.
  • Excessive thinking about food, eating, and body weight or shape.
  • Growth of a fine layer of hair on the body called lanugo.
