Fasting CURED my Bulimia!

by Cydney
(New Jersey, USA)

I was bulimic for a long time, longer than anything I would wish on anyone. It's absolutely horrible to live with and the obsession, I was told, never goes away. How wrong they were!

I had finally made up my mind, after months and months of failed diets to try a water fast. It was the best decision of my life!

At first it was difficult, but I was determined and made it through 3 days. I had set that as my limit, but once I got there I felt the urge to binge and purge so I forced myself to keep fasting.

It felt like some amazing had taken over my body! I admit I was a bit weak, but my mind...on my God, my mind was incredible. I felt so much more at peace with myself and the world, and I could concentrate on my actual needs not just my wants.

After 10 days, I decided to stop. I was sure that I wouldn't binge or purge. And that's just what I did. I started out eating veggies and fruits for a few days, then moved up to adding some protein, finally adding a little bit of carbs.

I am never struck with the urge to binge or purge anymore. I get the thoughts, but immediately tell myself "that's not who I am anymore" and they subside.

Fasting, seriously, change my life for the better.

Be careful trying this!
by: Olivia

I binge and purge, I do not purge by throwing up however, I will binge and then fast for a couple days then binge and fast again for another couple days etc and I have been diagnosed now with bulimia even though I don't vomit, fasting can be used as a way to purge. It's so great that the OP was able to overcome Bulimia with a fast, but I don't think it will work for everyone, it will just make many of you like me, and still bulimic :(

Bulimic as well
by: Ella

I just finished another binge/purge cycle, and I saw this comment. This gives me soo much hope. I want to stop very badly, and this makes me hopeful that a fast will work for me. I just want to start over with my eating habits. I have acne as well, and I know the bulimia is not making it any better. Thank you very much for this post.

Thank you for writing this article. I've recently recovered from a 2 year problem with bulimia. I'm 17 and it's something I wouldn't wish on anyone in the whole world. It was the most awful experience, much worse than anyone who hasn't experienced it could imagine. It took a major hit on my self-esteem and I feel like I can't continue living a normal life until I lose the weight, and not only that, but become at peace with my weight. I've done intense research on water fasting and I believe I have the determination to complete a 14-day water fast. I weigh 140 right now, I'll post later with my results in 2 weeks. Thanks again. Wish me luck!

I have the same problem
by: Anonymous

I am not bulimic, but I binge eat. For years I have been anorexic, but last year it morphed into so kind of anorexia/binge eating disorder (I know it it is an oxymoron, but it is possible). I tried numerous fasts, but I always fail on day 3. And, always before I fast, I have to have my "goodbye" binge. Over the past year, this cycle made me gain 12 EXTREMELY unwanted pounds and ruined my self-esteem and happiness. I feel that I need to finish a fast in order to be able to conquer this problem, so reading your post was very inspiring--thank you.

If anyone facing similar problems would want to exchange support feel free to email me at cdea.cunha @ gmail.com

You are giving me hope...
by: Carley

I am struggling from bulimia right now. It makes me feel like such a failure every single day. I hate food, I hate bingeing, I hate eating, yet I do it anyway. You are seriously giving me hope that I don't always have to live like this. I am 19 and I've only been bulimic for 9 months or so, though I've had an eating disorder for several years. My problem/question for you, though, is this - I have been trying to fast recently, but I fail every day. Every morning is a day-1, and every day at almost exactly 4PM I "decide" how about I just eat 1 meal a day? And then I do, and then that triggers a screw-it binge. Then I go to bed and wait for the next day-1. How can I stop this? I really need help.

If you can, I would very much appreciate an email. My address is blueglass@me.com.
