Yeah, so don't be curious for the wrong reasons.

Bulimia also destroys tooth enamel and erodes the esophagus.
This can have long term implications, including esophageal cancer.
People with bulimia are also subject to electrolyte imbalances as well.

Questions On Bulimia;?

Yes, definitely still bulimia. Because you are denying your body food, you will lose weight, after a while, but you're throat and teeth will become damaged from your stomach acid, and since you aren't actually digesting any food, your body will lose the wrong kind of weight. Bone density, muscles, hair, etc...Just a bad situation, no matter how you look at it.

Yes, it is still bulimia because you are intentionally making yourself throw up to lose weight. And i would guess it would take a while, vomit is a tiny bit of weight, it takes multiple times.

Yes, it's still bulimia.
A pound is 3500 calories.
So throwing up/not eating 3500 calories makes you lose a pound.
If you try to lose weight like this, your body goes into starvation mode.
Yes, weight comes off - but it's muscle, not fat.
Your metabolism also slows down so your body conserves energy because you haven't been giving it any.
Then whenever you eat something, your body immediately stores that food as fat, and you gain weight.

Don't lose weight this way.
Eat healthy and do cardio - you'll get there.

My experience with bulimia, I rarely binged, but I purged after eating a normal sized meal. It's still bulimia. As far as it making you lose weight, everyone's different, I guess. I did lose some weight, but not much, not even close for it to be worth it. I wish every day I could take it all back, because now I'm stuck with this fu*ked up mindset for the rest of my life.
