That pretty much defines "Bulimic". She needs help before she destroys her health. no, that doesn't define bulimia nervosa. It seems to be EDNOS, or a purging anorexic. Bulimia is characterised by BINGING and PURGING.

# eating, in a discrete period of time (e.g., within any 2-hour period), an amount of food that is definitely larger than most people would eat during a similar period of time and under similar circumstances # a sense of lack of control over eating during the episode (e.g., a feeling that one cannot stop eating or control what or how much one is eating) EDNOS stands for "eating disorder not otherwise specified" eg, they don't make the weight requirements for anorexia, or don't binge but do purge. You're friend needs help either way.
