What is Ednos?


An acronym for Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, the term was coined after a definition given in hopsitals and support centers to a person who:

- Suffers from all normal symptoms of Anorexia Nervosa, including weight loss, but may or may not be in a "normal" weight range.

-Suffers from all normal symptoms of Bulimia Nervosa, but binges tend to be relatively small (not exceeding 500 calories), and binging and purging incidents occur on a less than daily basis.

- Regularly uses 'inappropriate compensatory behavior' after eating small amounts of food (in other words, purging for an extended period of time after eating a very small amount of food)

-Regularly chewing and spitting out, but not swallowing, of food.

the term "ednos" is also used to refer to those in recovery from an eating disorder.

Some in the "pro-eating disorder" community refer to ednos as 'bulimexics', due to the similarities to both anorexia and bulmia.
