I have a couple of odd habits with eating.

I will chew and spit food about every other day. (but not large amounts, like maybe a piece of bread with peanut butter or 2 granola bars)
I will restrict my eating, and whenever I do end up eating, even if it is small amounts such as a bowl of cereal I will purge it out.
So I restrict to not allow myself to swallow more than 500 calories a day (but I attempt to purge this out) and will not chew and spit more than one or two items at a time.

What are the side effects of this? Should I seek help, for I do not clinically fall under any eating disorder and insurance company requires a diagnosis for treatment. (They do not accept EDNOS under my insurance plan, which Im pretty sure what I have?)

In case if you are wondering I am 18, 5'4, and weigh 129 pounds. I have slowly developed this behavior since I went to college last fall. And in the past 2 months is when it really 'blossomed' and from this I have lost 33 pounds in that 2 month time period. Every day it is getting more intense, so any advice for me to stop this behavior with eating, it is really addicting.
