Eating disorders (like anorexia and bulemia) seem to be a popular topic in Western teen literature, so I'm wondering if there's any manga that deals with it.

I could only think of the chapter on vol.1 and vol.4. in DOLL: IC in a DOLL manga! =DD

Spoiler (highlight to view)
The first chappie on the first vol. is about a rich girl who was bulimic when she was a kid, and she couldnt bear any children/heir once she got married.

The last chappie on vol. 4 COMPLETELY deals with bulimia. It's about a popular writer who was abused by her stepfather when she was a kid. She never had a 'real childhood', she never wanted to 'grow up' physically
and so, she always wear cute gothic loli clothings and had binge eating tendencies..and purging them afterwards.

It's worthy to purchase all 6 vols. of DOLL: IC in a doll

and oh! If I'm not mistaken there's a bulimic model in Kitchen Princess (I hope I didnt mixed up with the shoujo titles dead they all look the same to me)

and also...Ayu from Deep Love - Ayu no Monogatari has aneroxia

Diet is a good one, but it's unscanlated.

Seconding this. Obesity turns to bulimia (I think, judging from the pictures. I've been drooling over the raws.) laugh
It's not long, only 60-ish pages eyes
