I've been around people with eating disorders and disordered eating for almost 10 years.
You sound like you are describing a binge/purge (through fasting/restricting) cycle...
It's a vicious cycle and breaking it can be very difficult. Sometimes, people will try to stop, but just end up switching the "method"
There are so many methods and eating disorders or disordered eating patterns are progressive (without treatment).
Here's a site that will give good info and one of the links has a questionnaire: www.something-fishy.org/whatarethey/edordi
