Bulimia. You’ve heard the word before. Let’s take a look at bulimia nervosa symptoms and an overview of how to get over it.

But it’s just one of those things that people keep to themselves, remaining invisible …

Here is a quick overview of bulimia nervosa symptoms causes and recovery:

  • Symptoms: binging and then behavior to not gain weight (doesn’t need to be vomiting but excessive exercise counts too)
  • Causes: no definitive cause but risk factors include biology, past behavior of dieting, and emotional issues
  • Recovery: various options for recovery

Bulimia Nervosa Symptoms

There is never a complete reason for Bulimia nervosa.

In any case, in view of my past experience of helping individuals, I can securely say that each individual I have worked with bulimia has had a background marked by eating fewer carbs (aka, dieting).

This is the reason I in my Dietary issue Specialist practice in the Bay Area Region I place sooo much instructive mindfulness on eating fewer carbs.

Abstaining from food intake damages individuals.

On the off chance that you have bulimia, chances are high you have counted calories previously and dieted.

For an excellent resource article on the causes of bulimia, you can read this Mayo clinic article here.

The dubious part about bulimia is that you may not lose a huge amount of weight like anorexia.

When somebody is anorexic, you can once in a while tell. Anorexic individuals are infamous for having staggeringly meager bodies.

However in bulimia no weight reduction (or weight gain) may happen.

This makes bulimia undercover and simpler to cover up.

Be that as it may, there are some regular side effects:

Gorge: you eat a ton of sustenance in a brief timeframe and feel crazy

Remuneration: You practice for quite a long time at any given moment, you take pills to flush your framework or quit eating. You may make yourself upchuck too

Self-perception bending: You see your body as the wellspring of your issues. On the off chance that lone your body looked a specific way or on the off chance that your weight was lower, at that point your life would be better. These contemplations engross your mind about constantly.

Bulimia is not this. Bulimia is what you do after this. Do you punish yourself? Do you exercise for hours on end? Do you swear you’ll never do this again? Do you skip eating the next day? Bulimia is punishment. It’s you punishing you because you screwed up you.

Bulimia Recovery

There are many different options to recover from bulimia and you can see my previous post about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy here.

This post connected above discussions about Psychological Treatment.

However, honestly, don’t stress over that yet.

Actually simply don’t stress.

I know ..

I know …

Just won’t stress? I’ve quite recently discovered that I’ve coordinated the manifestations of voraciously consuming food issue!

By what means can I not stress?

I’m letting you know, don’t stress.

Is it accurate to say that you are alive at this moment?

At that point you’ll be alright going ahead.

Try not to make this into a more serious issue.

It’s simply something you have to find out about.

No disgrace.

Don’t you need to get familiar with your body?

Try not to believe that you have some issue or something.


Perceive that you may have awful examples, beyond any doubt.

Perceive that you may actually have what others will name as “voraciously consuming food”

Yet, …

You’re alive at the present time, right?
