This study compared the shoplifting patterns of 27 bulimic and 25 nonbulimic shoplifters. Bulimic shoplifters often stole food, but usually also stole other items. Nonbulimic shoplifters reported starting to steal at an earlier age, weighed more than bulimic shoplifters, and were more likely to endorse antisocial reasons for shoplifting.
