The common eating disorder linked to being a perfectionist is Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia.

Bulimia on the other hand is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent binge eating, followed by compensatory behaviors referred to as “purging”.
The medical research showed that due to the intention of some people to look good and be good at all times they end up having some eating problems due to stress and pressure caused by their type of personality.
Since achieving success in everything we do is almost synonymous to impossible, many perfectionist became frustrated and end up having some eating disorders in the end.
