Excessive exercise in anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa: relation to eating characteristics and general psychopathology.
TLDR
While high levels of depression were more likely among all patients who used excessive exercise, levels of anxiety and somatization were particularly high only among those anorexics who exercised excessively.
Comparison of eating disorder patients with and without compulsive exercising.
TLDR
There was a trend for a significantly higher frequency of compulsive exercising in the patients with anorexia nervosa than those with bulimia nervosa, and 3 CE patients with a DSM-III-R diagnosis of eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS) were included for comparison with non-CEs on a number of variables.
Relationships between features associated with vomiting in purging-type eating disorders.
TLDR
It is suggested that certain clinical and personality variables distinguish individuals with purging-type eating disorders who vomit from those who do not, although there were no marked differences in Axis I or II comorbidity.
Does "excessive" or "compulsive" best describe exercise as a symptom of bulimia nervosa?
TLDR
"Compulsive" may be a better description than "excessive" in characterizing exercise as a symptom of bulimia nervosa, and the OEQ score was a positive predictor of disordered eating attitudes and behaviors, and exercise time was a negative predictor.
Personality characteristics of women before and after recovery from an eating disorder
TLDR
Findings suggest that disturbances may be trait-related and contribute to the disorders' pathogenesis, and additional research with more representative community controls, rather than pre-screened, normal controls, is needed to confirm these impressions.
The pathological status of exercise dependence
TLDR
In the absence of an eating disorder, women identified as being exercise dependent do not exhibit the sorts of personality characteristics and levels of psychological distress that warrant the construction of primary exercise dependence as a widespread pathology.
The contribution of anxiety and food restriction on physical activity levels in acute anorexia nervosa.
TLDR
The results indicate that anxiety symptoms and food restriction synergistically contribute to increased levels of physical activity in the acute phase of Anorexia nervosa.
Temperament and character in women with anorexia nervosa.
