All of these eating disorders can affect the body in a negative way.  They also all have different side effects.  Anorexia can deprive the body of necessary energy, the body will begin eating its own muscle tissue. 

Anorexia is an eating disorder where people starve themselves. Anorexia usually begins in young people around the onset of puberty. Individuals suffering from anorexia have extreme weight loss. Weight loss is usually 15% below the person's normal body weight. People suffering from anorexia are very skinny but are convinced that they are overweight. Weight loss is obtained by many ways. Some of the common techniques used are excessive exercise, intake of laxatives and not eating.

 

This can lead to heart problems as the heart is a major muscle of the body.  

 

Bulimia can traumatize the body and disrupt good nutrition, people will stretch their stomachs to the limit and vomit.  This can send acid through the esophagus which can eventually eat it away.  

 

Men and women who live with Bulimia seek out binge and purge episodes -- they will eat a large quantity of food in a relatively short period of time and then use behaviors such as taking laxatives or self-induced vomiting -- because they feel overwhelmed in coping with their emotions, or in order to punish themselves for something they feel they should unrealistically blame themselves for. This can be in direct relation to how they feel about themselves, or how they feel over a particular event or series of events in their lives. Those suffering with Bulimia may seek episodes of binging and purging to avoid and let out feelings of anger, depression, stress or anxiety. New research indicates that for a percentage of sufferers, a genetic predisposition may play a role in a sensitivity to develop Bulimia, with environmental factors being the trigger.

 

Binge eating stresses the digestive system in different ways then bulimia. The stomach is still usually stretch but there is no vomiting, which can lead to extreme weight gain.  There are many health issues with being over weight such as heart disease and high blood pressure.
