La boulimie chez les jeunes est un problème croissant de nos jours. De plus en plus d’adolescents souffrent de cette maladie. La boulimie est un des troubles des conduites alimentaires, qui se ca-ractérise par un rapport pathologique à la nourriture se manifestant par des ingestions excessives d’aliments, de façon répétitive et durable. Cette maladie entre dans les addictions, on peut même parfois parler de toxicomanie, dans le sens “manie toxique”. La boulimie est une des formes les plus sévères des troubles alimentaires avec l’anorexie.
Le boulimique adore manger et son cerveau le sait. Il va donc produire une grande quantité d’insuline, ce qui va engendrer une faim assez importante en vue d’un énorme festin.

Bulimia among young people is a growing problem nowadays. More and more teenagers suffer from this illness. Bulimia is one of the nutritional behavioural disorders, which is characterised by a patho-logical relationship to food, manifested by the repetitive, long-term excessive intake of food, this ill-ness is characterised as an addiction. It is sometimes talked about as a drug addiction in the sense of toxic compulsion. Bulimia is one of the most severe eating disorders along with anorexia.
The bulimic loves to eat and his or her brain knows this. The brain will thus produce huge quantities of insulin, which will result in hunger pangs with a view to eating a huge amount.
