  1. 1. Prueba de Adelanto de Inglés - 2º BD - Feb. 2014 PRUEBA NACIONAL - ADELANTO DE INGLÉS - 2º BD Highschool: Marks Group: Written Test: /55 Name: Oral Exam: Date: Final Mark: I. Read the whole passage thoroughly and answer the questions below. There are several different types of eating disorders that affect millions of people today. They can be grouped into two categories – those that cause people to be underweight and those that cause obesity. A common eating disorder affecting many people these days, especially young girls, is anorexia. People who suffer from anorexia restrict their food intake to dangerously low amounts. As a result, they lose a lot of weight and become severely underweight. Anorexia is a mental-health problem as people who suffer from it have a constant fear of gaining weight and therefore stop eating. Another eating disorder that causes extreme weight loss is bulimia. Bulimics do what is known as binge eating, which is consuming large amounts of food at once. Immediately after, they either vomit or do an extraordinary amount of exercise to burn off the calories. Another type of eating disorder which is simply known as binge eating varies from bulimia in that the person eats a large amount of food at once but does not vomit or exercise after. In fact, the person does not exercise at all. A milder variation of binge eating, known as compulsive eating, occurs when a person continually eats food throughout the day, causing a steady weight gain which eventually reaches an unhealthy level. A strange but new type of eating disorder is known as night eating. Those who suffer from this eating disorder feel like they need to eat a large amount of food or they won’t be able to sleep. 0.
