heart, constipation, ruptured esophagus, and ulcers. One last example of an eating disorder is binge eating. It is the opposite of anorexia, and causes people to eat compulsively. It causes you to eat well after you are full, and not hungry. Binge eating can cause a number of different health complications, such as high dietary fat, type 2 diabetes, heart ailment, cancer, and high lifeblood stress. These eating disorders cause more than just problems with health, but also affect someone on the outside physiologically. Being anorexic causes your hair to thin and become brittle, you will bruise easily, have dry skin, yellow skin, and will have weak muscles as well as lose bone mass. With weak small muscles and losing bone mass, you will become over skinny and people will be able to tell that something is wrong. With bulimia come physiological problems as well. Some of those problems would be puffy cheeks (from frequent vomiting), abrasions of knuckles, dry skin, and frequent fluctuations in weight (from binging and then purging) (Smith and Segal, 2012). Most people with binge disorder will be overweight or obese; however, some are actually a normal weight.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
