It can be related to / another form of eating disorder, similar to purging. The individual will eat and then make sure s/he exercises to "get rid of the calories" and/or "to punish herself/himself for not having better control over eating".

Ya, I know. Eating disorders are like drugs. They become habits and coping mechanisms that only hurt us more in the end.
Good plan! You should go to schools, talk to kids about this and try to help as many people as possible. I feel that you're a cannon ready to explode - IN A GOOD WAY!
