Fasting CURED my Bulimia!
(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.
