Tips (pro-mia)

1. when purging. stick your finger as far down as you can and keep them their until you can’t anymore. this will be hard the first few times but it’ll get easier after time. if your having trouble with 2 fingers, use 3 fingers, it works really well.

- stand up, dont go on your knees because once it gets up if your bent over standing the gravity just pulls it out, chug 3 glasses of water right before, push on your stomach with what ever hand isnt down your throat, when you feel something start coming keep your fingers down your troat until literaly the vomit is so much it forces your hand out of your mouth.

2. RECOMMENDED FOODS TO EAT:

(eat liquidy type foods that come up easily)

ice cream, soup, milkshakes, frozen yogurt, yogurt, juices, bananas, other soft fruits, well-cooked soft vegetables and oatmeal.

-NOT RECOMMENDED FOODS TO EAT:

~anything spicy, apples, chocolate, meat, and bread

~anything swallowed in chunks: potato, rice, cooked grains, anything with small sharp pieces like popcorn or chips, nuts, raw crunchy veggies, and salad.

3. weigh yourself before purging and after purging to make sure you got rid of everything. this is a pro-ana/mia trick.

4. if you plan on eating and purging, don’t eat chips or meat, avoid spicy foods and chocolate. Chocolate tastes nasty coming up, and spicy foods can burn your nose. These can hurt to purge.

5. don’t go brush your teeth immediately after purging, wait to brush your teeth. brushing right away can help the stomach acid decay your teeth. gargle water or mouth wash. then after an hour brush. use a mouthwash or toothpaste that has an enamel protector in it.

6. using the end of a toothbrush can be good for stimulating a gag reflex to prevent your hands being damaged from stomach acid, but it takes longer and can often hurt. but many bulimics use this method.

7. splash your face with cold water after purging to help reduce redness and teary eyes. always keep Q-tips in your bag to clean up any eye make-up that runs while purging. not to mention a little cover up and some blush to retouch up if you are a public purger.

8. always gargle water after purging. the stomach acid can build up in your salivary glands and make your face swollen (this is a criteria in diagnosing bulimia that psychologists and doctors look for) this is why so many bulimic’s have the chubby cheek look.

Purging and Keeping it Secret:

1. be discreet and as quiet as possible

2. play music in the bathroom or keep a faucet running.

3. say you are going to take a shower, turn the water on, and purge.

4. when inducing a purge, don’t take your fingers/instrument out the first time you gag, this can make it harder to bring your food back up.

5. if people ask why your eyes are red, say you got something in your eye, or allergies.

6. place toilet paper in the toilet so the water and your vomit don’t splash up and hit you. TIP: put the lid down before flushing. always check to make sure it is flushed all the way down.

7. when you leave the bathroom, try to compose yourself before entering the room.

8. don’t immediately run to the bathroom unless you’re alone. wait 15-20 minutes to purge when around people. some say that if you wait more than an hour, your body will have already absorbed most of the calories.

9. wash your hands! stomach acid can ruin your hands and nails (another feature psychologists are supposed to look for according to the DSM IV)

NOTE: i highly recommend you stick to the Ana life style because purging can be dangerous.

      I’ve been bulimic for 8 yrs, it destroys you life, reading to all this made me very sad. if someone would have told me to no start purging 8 yrs ago it would have same me all this time i lost been bulimic. it get so bad and so addictive that all you do is eat and purge. that is no a way to live. it get to a point that thoughts drives you craze, I have overdosed trying to kill myself coz i could no stop and it was hurting me so much. u can only hide it for so long, then you start to change, and affects you and your family and friend will know that something is wrong with you. Please do no become a bulimic is no fun is the most horrible , exhausting and painful thing you can do to yourself.

        **i couldnt reply to the idiots who replied to you .3. so ima do this here.
        ‘Ya know I don’t think people are on here To become bulimic just to get better at it’ and this is an excuse to encourage eating disorders because…?

        ‘its just a strategy to lose a couple pounds every now and then for most people’ uh no its called an ‘eating disorder’ look it up and educate yourself please. It’s a mental illness.
        ‘its not the writaers fault. They looked for the site. Js’ yeah they did and its super sad(in fact its kinda of irritating) that someone can look up tips on how to destroy their body, that the writer **provides** for people to ultimately kill themselves is some sort of justified excuse?

        No one should strive to hurt themselves, and destroy their body, because society or some @$$ at school claims the individual is not up to that other individuals opinion and standards of whats beautiful. The absolute fact that people encourage and try to justify this behavior is insane itself.

        Skinny does not equal that of healthy, skinny is in no way shape or form some sort of absolute beauty in appearance. Being so small and brittle does not make someone more desirable. Truth of the matter is: if you’re puking everything out, refusing to eat that food on your plate, for the purpose of attracting a lover of some sort, that does not and it will never make someone more willing to date you. Love finds it way, and it finds it way in time and it can find its way to anyone of all shapes and sizes. Plenty of people who are not a size zero find mates, true loves in their lives. Love does not come from appearance, it comes from the heart.

        Megan- I’ve been bulimic since adolescence. For the first time in my life I have it under control, 6 months and only 2 triggers (both which I stopped myself mid purge). How? Welbutrin, 60mg, RX from psychiatrist. I don’t feel the stressors that caused me to binge/purge or starve/purge. I snack most of the day on whole foods and eat a healthy dinner with my family. I don’t even think about food, only on occaision when I wait to long to eat. It curbs appetite, helps anxiety (purging releases endorphins, this replaces those). Oddly enough I weigh less, am more toned, and look healthier than I ever did during years of bulimia…and I am happier that I can focus on other things other than obsessing about food and weight. Learn to love yourself and don’t be ashamed if an SSRI or SNRI helps you along the way.

        Why are you all so scared about bulimics?
        If you don´t want it anymore, search for help! Ask your parents friends or something like this. But I like Mia. When i was eleven years old, I was overweight 66kg. Everyone was nasty to me, because I was fat. My parents inclusive. I was very very sad, i wanted to loseweight, but I can´t. No one likes me:( I was rwally unpopular.
        One year later I read a book about Mia and Ana. First I think it was stupid to do something like this, but then in I try it, and now, two years later my weight is 48kg. Everyone say how good I look. Everyone likes me.
        Example: From the first time, we chose the class responsive, I wanted to do this job.
        But no one chose me. Then, in the year when I lose my weight, two-thirds of the class wanted me to be the class respinsiv! Nothing had change, except my weight.

Its no way to live. our bodies process and breakdown food so quickly, its not possible throw up all the calories that were consumed.

        I was bulimic for 2 years and it isnt hard to go unnoticed. That’s the thing unnoticed. The purging didn’t help me loose weight, it was just an addictive waste of time and a bane to my health. It will shadow me for the rest of my life. Honest to god anyone who is in such a place to even think about searching for these tips i beg of you please do not start. You might feel good for a few months but after a while you will realise doing this makes you appear even more of an outcast. There are better ways of dealing with body confidence and body perception issues. All you have to do is ask for help from someone who cares for you. The people behind this website do not.

      I can guarantee you will experience a majority of these health issues if you continue this cycle. DON’T RESPECT THIS SICK INDIVIDUAL WHO STARTED THIS PAGE, BECAUSE SHE IS A VERY SELFISH INDIVIDUAL!

      THESE CONDITIONS ARE FACTUAL AND WILL HAPPEN.

      The heart muscle changes, and its beat becomes irregular, potentially leading to cardiac arrest and death.

      Dehydration, kidney stones, and kidney failure may result in death.

      Liver damage (made worse if substance abuse is also a factor) may result in death.

      Menstruation often stops, even before extensive weight loss. This is called amenorrhea and can lead to infertility and bone loss or osteoporosis.

      Muscles waste away, resulting in weakness and loss of function.

      Slowed digestion caused by a lack of energy and diminished body function results in bowel irritation and constipation.

      Permanent loss of bone calcium leads to fractures and lifelong problems of osteoporosis.

      The person becomes intolerant to cold (especially in the hands and feet), and has sunken eyes, hair loss, bloating, and dry skin.

      The immune system weakens.

      Skin becomes dry and blotchy and has an unhealthy gray or yellow cast.

      Anemia and malnutrition may result.

      Fainting spells, sleep disruption, bad dreams, and mental fuzziness may result.

      In addition to these complications, the following common medical complications associated with bulimia nervosa result from repeated cycles of bingeing and purging:

      Loss of muscle mass from excessive vomiting may occur.

      Vomiting and abuse of laxatives and diuretics flush sodium chloride and potassium from the body, resulting in an electrolyte imbalance. Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) can result, which can ultimately lead to heart failure and death.

      Stomach acids in vomit can erode tooth enamel, resulting in damage such as cavities and discoloration. The acids can go into the salivary glands in the month, causing swollen glands in the neck, stones in the salivary ducts, and “chipmunk cheeks.”

      Self-induced vomiting can result in irritation and tears in the lining of the throat, esophagus, and stomach.

      Laxative abuse can create a dependence and result in an inability to have normal bowel movements.

      Abuse of medications to help induce vomiting, such as ipecac, can result in toxicity, heart failure, and death.

      Peptic ulcers may occur.

      The medical consequences of binge eating disorder are most often associated with obesity and include the following:

      High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and elevated triglyceride levels, which may cause hardening of the arteries and heart disease.

      Increased risk of bowel, breast, and reproductive cancers.

      Increased risk of diabetes.

      Increased risk of arthritic damage to the joints.

      Buy some tooth mousse or chewable antacids and use them right after throwing up. Don’t brush your teeth right after throwing up as the acid soften the enamel. Still, make sure you brush morning and night and floss twice daily!!! Acid can sit between your teeth so flossing is really important. This is advice from my dentist. I’ve been bulimic 6 years now and so far only one filling.

        3 hours after eating is too late to throw up as all of the calories would have already been absorbed. I read somewhere that the best time is between 15 and 40 minutes after eating, although, i think its a lot easier immediately afterwards!!

        And you’ll spend so much more time trying to get away from this illness than you ever did trying to be bulimic.
        How do I know? I’ve been bulimic for 5 years. I used to WANT this, when I was younger and thought the exact same things as you do.

        You know none of you are looking skinny and beautiful bc your throwing up your food. You would rather die skinny and beautiful????? You are malnourished most are normal or above weight,, BTW all of you smell sickly and awful ,,,you look grey sunken and sick. You should know how obvious you look and smell. You should wish and want to be healthy and beautiful. You should be blessed and show appreciation for your lives and bodies. Yes this is a sickness a disease so you turn to a narsasistic writer to give you tips on becoming a better diseased sick person??????? I only came across this page bc a good friend/coworker of mine is hurting herself with this illness and I wanted to find out what the less obvious signs to look for are and I find a site to become perge expert???? I am so terrified how many young people have turned to this stupid page and thought it is advice. Would you tell your daughters sisters mothers to live this lifestyle?????would you tell them it’s more important to be skinny than healthy??? Look people all it takes is exersize and eating whole healthy foods and yes their are very real phycological reasons that makes this a disease so difficult to just quit but so does drud addiction alcoholism sex addiction abusive behaviors but think long and hard about what you would want for your loved ones and treat yourself that way. You are all perfect and beautiful the way you are. There is great help out there I hope you all seek that help and love yourself and accept yourselves as the perfect beings god created you to be and to become.BTW I have lived Ana and excessive exercise life for 10 years which turned to drug addiction for 10 years now I manage my everyday with the guilt of the many years I was so out of touch I wasted so long I didn’t raise my fantastic boy I live with guilt and regret every day and I will always have to be aware of where I come from and work so hard to keep myself safe and healthy and clean. I only tell you so you don’t think I don’t get it. That’s just a tiny fraction of my faults and the amount of reasons I have that led me that path my list is very overwhelming but I today am 5’4 and weigh between 115-125 I still panic and beat myself up when my weight goes up but I know it’s bc I am normal I’m eating normally I am healthy and that feeling is better than any high any hunger pangs that I used to look forward to to need in order to feel strong and sexy. Now my sexy comes from my sexy smile and clean smelling breath with confidence that I smell good and can be close without fear of stinking I pray you all get it one day too. . You are all perfect.

        Thanks for the laughs Jessica. Sounds like you making an attempt ( a poor one) to make up for your mistakes by pretending to understand what people with an ed go through. Think you need to go spend time making up to your son and your family for all that you have done. You probably stole, sold your body, ripped off friends and family, and broke promises – maybe you need to spend time making up for that. Rather than coming on a website FOR people who are already suffering with low self esteem and issues and ripping them apart. Some people are so clueless. Did they teach you that in AA? HAHAHAHAHAHA

It takes longer but at least you won’t be stuck with a disease that tortures you 24/7. Remember, you’re beautiful just the way you are<3 please take my advice.. don't make the same mistake I did.

        I had buttery pasta with three different types of cheeses you could literally see the grease oozing on the side of the plate. It tasted so good, but it made me feel terrible. Full like a stuffed bird. I felt relieved afterword. But I also dont want to share tips because I really dont support the ailment this was only a one time thing because the food I consumed made me feel really disgusting physically. If you guys are going to do anything at all. Go mild ana at least you’ll be supplying your body with some sort of nutrients and you will loose weight. Trust me I’ve started a month ago, I only eat one meal a day, and consume up to 1000 cal max. And drink a gal of cold water everyday faithfully (half of your body weight). Or you can snack on small amounts of fruits, nuts, and junk food here and there every 3-4 hours but keep active so that you burn those calories off take a quick walk or do 30 jumping jacks. I’m already seeing MAJOR differences in my face and stomach. You can do this just be smart about it, your body doesnt deserve to be destroyed in such a disastrous way.

        Look, Im pretty sure you are beautiful without doing this. I pured for about a week, first to get out of school then i wanted to be skinny like all the models. Luckily my mom caught on after dinner and made me stop. Im so glad I did too. I might be overweight, but im excercising and motivating myself to become HEALTHY not skinny. Live to the fullest, life should be enjoyed out in the world, not in front of a mirror or in the bathroom toilet

      Being Bulimic isn’t something you “want” to do. Throwing up once and saying you are doesn’t make you have an eating disorder. No one wants to be bulimic. They just are. Thinking you’re overweight for too long or whatever pushes you. Getting rid of everything that one time, then two, three, four, etc. It’s not a want. It’s a need, an addiction. It’s a lifestyle. An unhealthy awful one, Stupid little girls shouldn’t be searching for tips. Find it out the hard way.

        well…i have thrown up after lots of meals to lose weight. i havent become addicted and my life is fine. my mom even tried it and has told me. she of coarse doesnt recomend it but she atleast is honest with me. she hasnt done it since highschool and you can tell from how much weight she has gained after having children ands having an amazing body image. i have a great body image and i know where my boundaries are. if i feel my eating habits are becoming i problem i purge after meals to lose some extra pounds. big deal. other peoples weight loss methods are their business so if it offends you so much just fuck off.

        Exactly, This is no way to lose weight and it does not keep weight off. I have been struggling as well Bulimia for some time, and i have found that is has become progressively aggressive and consuming. I have finally reached the point where i am surrendering and getting professional help. The side effects of bulimia are long term, therefore they will sneak up on you and destroy you slowly. Metbolism slows down, teeth are looking a bit transparent, Face is so over fluffy from the binge and the access of food that was shoveled into my body. Its such a confusing disorder…. I tried it all…… now its time to try a professional treatment program that specializes in women’s eating disorders.

      Best Bodies in the world=athletes (right/wrong?)
      athletes=healthy
      healthy=excersize + proper nutrition (what athletes do)
      proper nutrition=natural whole foods with good protein sources (no slimshakes allowed!)

      Combine training and good clean food and you can get the body of your dreams. Not really, but it will be a start, and that is all one can ask for. It will get you a more attractive body than Mia. If no one will help you go down this path, then you’ll find out how much they care for you.
      It will make you happy, skinny, and feel alright eating food when you have exercised. Impossible it sounds. no one is truly happy with their bodies, you just have to keep taking positive steps to be better, and pick yourself up if you fall.

      when you get scared just take a really deep breath and realize that nothing bad can happen. realize its under your control and just dont let it. know that when you finish getting all the food out you will have completed a meal and stayed thin :). dont be afraid. purging shouldnt feel pressured. its up to you. it wont hurt you it can only help you lose the weight youve been trying SOO hard to lose. and youre taking this from a 17 year old male of which isnt addicted to purging either. its a simple way to lose some extra pounds. its not a life choice! its like a fad diet and when you feel your weight slipping again you can start again. and its so easy once you get the hang of it. and it doesnt hurt lol as long as you use your own fingers it shouldnt. if you wiggle them a little it works faster as well. i hope this helped. my first time was after i ate a bunch of popcorn and it kind of sucked but i continued doing that. you dont have to get all the food out the first time either. you should just get used to the idea first. remember not to let it get out of hand :( i wish i could help more honestly but im sure you will figure his all out :)

      I only purge if I eat something unhealthy, like ice cream. I wouldn’t do it all the time because I heard it can ruin your esophagus and teeth. When I do purge I take two fingers and repeatedly hit the top of my throat. Its how I started and I’ve done that ever since.

    And restricting isn’t? I know a woman who never purges. She’s “ana” (she’s effing anorexic, thanks), but she’s not even underweight, and she’s going to need a kidney transplant because her kidneys are failing due to it. Among so many other health issues.

    That said… I have EDNOS, and I came here looking for tips, so I can’t complain. xD But really. Hand out tips, offer thinspo, do whatever you want to do, but don’t pretend ana and mia are anything but what they are: life-threatening eating disorders.

Nobody is here to say that either ana or mia is good for you, but I think it seems a little “high and mighty” to say “I know we both have eating disorders, but I feel like mine is less unhealthy than yours.” I assume most of ana’s friends don’t feel this way, but I have to wonder how it got onto all of these sites. Like is there just one person running all of the forums?

        Honestly I was Ana for years, after having 2 kids being so self controlled was SO much harder. Naturally until I could get used to eating less the first step was making my body realized feeling Full was the enemy. Hunger meant happy. I had to drill that into my head… (beauty is pain)
        So if I ate I would drink a big warm glass or two of water after to the point I was fairly bursting- going in the garage (purge into Walmart bag and tie it up & put under other trash in the can. Or say “OMG I have to pee SO bad-” or “Ugh- I guess I ate too fast, I feel nauseous!….” so I can excuse myself and as soon as I hit the Bathroom I’m bent over three fingers down to my flap in my windpipe. Of course with seat up to minimize splatter cleanup, toss a balled wad of TP in to help suck up any oil or stringy junk when it flushes. Quick wipe-down of the rim (especially if u are married or have roommates) rinse mouth, wipe eyes, face or what-have-you… The last thing you want is to burst out of the bathroom disheveled- huge R-E-D flag. Be sure you wash hands with Soap! (if u just used the toilet you would wash up) (also suds in sink further backup the “using the toilet” lie. (this works for me. If you plateaued it means you are taking in the same amt your body uses. Step up metabolism by light free weights – I like 5 and 9lb free weights and do triceps and biceps, even slight muscle toning builds lean muscle…. Building muscle actually blasts fat cells since the body turns the areas fat stores into the muscle it’s being replaced with. I only train with weights 3 times a week lol – I’m so lazy, that’s y this is what works. I literally sat around in my bath robe depressed and tired of being fat….. By doing what I previously outlined I lost 55lbs in 3 months I’m not joking.

        It is not a choice between one or the other. The less you eat the more likely you are to binge on shit then puke it all up again. I am guilty of this myself. The more you starve yourself the worse you binge. So don’t starve because it will only lead to more binge/purging. Just try to accept that you aren’t fat and 139lbs is a perfectly healthy weight. If you can’t, try minimizing the harm you are doing to yourself.

      Juli- I think you aren’t full enough to fully kick in the vomit reflex, after morning sickness with bb no two I couldn’t use a toothbrush-(ouch much?) and finger did nothing, I drank lots of warm water prior to the next try, used as many fingers (all 4-5) to gag the crap out of a donkey. I hate to explain these tricks because yes we are sick- but if I agree I’m sick and you agree you are willing to do whatever u can to shed lbs, sickness is relative. Maybe everyone else is sick and have rose colored glasses on. Wake up! We are all going to be dirt eventually- if I choose to kill myself in this fashion is it any different than over eating until I’m morbidly obese? They are equally destructive. Don’t put ME down because I am choosing to be thinner to improve my self image. If you don’t belong in the forum- keep your yap trapped. IMHO

      Hey Juliana. I had the exact same problem. It took me months to figure out how to do it. I finally got the hang of it and now it’s way easier because I know what works for me. Just experiment with heaps of different ways. The BIGGEST tip I have that worked for ME was WARM SALT WATER – it made me feel sooooo sick. Second thing that really worked for me: drinking diet coke with between each mouthful of my binge – I have a real problem with reflux so the bubbles kept making bubbles rise up in my throat which made it feel like i was already vomiting, third: the tall glass of water thing before you purge, fourth: jump up and down and wiggle around to mix everything in your stomach around with the liquid – also makes you feel sick, fifth: I use TWO to THREE fingers each time and I KEEP THEM IN THERE until stuff comes up – that’s what i was doing wrong before – I would make myself gag then take my finger out (also i was only using one finger) and the thing that REALLY makes the shit come up is wiggling them around – I tickle the flap thing at the back of my throat and also you should be so far back that it feels like you’re choking and you should be able to feel the holes that lead to your lunge and stomach.
      Hope this helps. :D

      Oh and DO NOT try syrup of ipecac – you WILL die. Literally. And this is coming from someone who is risking her health direly to feed her obsession with food. Most bulimics will tell you the exact same thing. It’s rare to find a bulimic who recommends this. And she will probably be dead in a few months. Re. Karen Carpenter – died from Ipecac abuse.

      Drinking salt water right before a purge works amazing. It already will make you gag. Also drinks lots of water while binging. It will nutritilize acid and make everything come up easily quickly. Look ana&mia aren’t long term answers. I did for a short amount of time to get down to 110 lbs then once I was there started working and slowly stopped binging and purging. I was able to work out, take in small amount of calories and stay at my glorious weight. I don’t look sick, my teeth are perfect. I still feel the need to binge and purge but my fiancé is helpin me and more every day. It’s all about self control ladies. And this self control is much better than Mia!

      Hey Juliana! When I had bulimia, I used to only push on my stomach with my fist. I never, ever had to shove my finger down my throat. I’ve had bulimia for ten years, always just used my fist… i’ve been reading the comments here and on other websites and don’t see others doing it that way…wonder if others have? It doesn’t induce that awful “vomit”-feeling, unless you push something large through (like a big chunk of bread). It’s also “safer”, I suppose, because your fingernails don’t show the damage. I guess if you want to purge, rather do it this way…?
      Ps: I’m replying to your post because no doctor has ever believed me when I told them that is the way I did it, and I’m really curious to know whether others have done it this way.

I have tried to minimize the harm caused to my teeth but I am pretty sure the enamel over them has worn off. Please PLEASE don’t do this to yourself. If you can get out, do it now. Don’t get started.

Just be healthy, because one day you’ll be 100 pounds at the obgyn(gyno) and the doctor will be telling you words that will destroy you. “You are infertile, im sorry” and then youll be thinking “what the f%** have i done?”

Eat healthy food (normal meals) and exercise regularly. Start going to the gym and get a trainer to guide you on what to eat and what not to eat. Set a HEALTHY goal. NOT a thin, stickfigure goal. DON’T PURGE, YOU WILL SUFFER A LOT AND DON’T STARVE.

        Even though I am Ana&Mia, I am 5’8″ 134lb size 6 American dress. I am the ideal size-shape-proportions I have a pretty face and am only 31. I am not trying to be the size of myself at eighteen (32-25-34) 115lbs. I don’t have unrealistic body ideals. I don’t want to see a gap between my thighs. I look in the mirror and I DO have womanly shaped thighs ass and chest, my stomach may not be completely flat but I have stretch marks too so what,?!, who cares…. What I DO care about is feeling like I look fantastic and sexy. If I had to do it again- I W-oul-D.
        if that makes you mad, too bad for you. I am just trying to keep these younger people from doing more damage than they already would be by being left to their own devices.

        Pushing up on your stomach does help a lot especially if u drink lots of water , I don’t recommend pop because of all the acid and carbonation – I even swallow some pepto with my purge water, kinda helps the acid taste too

      • Ana-nonymous
        Feb 15, 2013 @ 05:01:39

        No! No pop! The carbonation in it is acidic, which will work with the stomach acid to hurt your throat more! Water is better, but no carbonated drinks. We’re going for skinny, not a burning hole in our throats!

      Try using the back of your toothbrush or drink 3 cups of water and 2 cans of water to help with the gaging.my friend told me that she dips bread in saltwater and then puts it in her mouth and it helps get everything out. Let me know if theses tips help.

    I’ve seen a lot of these pro-ana and pro-mia websites and have seen MANY more internet browsers DISGUSTED by this. I, personally, am not particularly opinionated either way. But, I can see how this can be off-putting to someone who has yet to experience bulimia and/or anorexia, because they don’t particularly understand the behaviors. Honestly, I’ve been on the boarder of both disorders during the length of my entire life. Regardless, what people fail to realize while reading these passages is that EITHER WAY, bulimics and anorexics WILL binge and purge. And do these websites encourage them? I’m not going to try to be noble here, they obviously do to some extent. HOWEVER, I can say that the majority of these “tips and tricks” go a long way towards making purging less painful, and frequent . ( For those of you who don’t know, as binges decrease, the needs to purge decrease, too. ) In addition to this, very many people also don’t realize how hurtful the comments on this page can actually BE to someone with an eating disorder . . . ( I don’t have much more to say about this but, maybe “lighten up” on the “hatorade”.) I mean, any person can ACCIDENTALLY offend someone who’s mental state is a mystery to them . . But, HONESTLY? Some of the phrasing is ridiculously insensitive. JS. ~

    Every website I’ve been to tries to tell me that ana>mia. I’m not saying mia’s good for you, but it’s like almost the entire community seems to think it’s a million times worse than ana. Guess what? It isn’t. I love mia and I always will. I come to these websites for support, and telling me to switch to ana on a page labeled “pro-mia tips” isn’t ridiculously supportive.

      Hey, I know I can’t physically see you, but anybody who calls you fat doesn’t deserve you. You are so unique and you only get one life. Don’t spend it on one girl who doesn’t know what she is talking about. Never for one minute doubt yourself, did you know at least 6 people on this planet care about you a great deal, and I may not know you but I care. I care enough to write you this message, you don’t deserve to feel that way about yourself, and honestly about any girl would be lucky to have you. Instead of saying “screw calf muscles” say Screw purging, because you are better than that. Stay strong, never give up. You mean something to somebody.

      Your BF is a douche and I personally would like to remove his testicles. When I was 18 I had a BF who I thought was just the bomb except he use to tell me I needed to lose weight and his ex had a better body than mine. I had been a little overweight most of my life and always had my dad in my ear telling me so. I desperately wanted my dad and my BF to love me so I started throwing up after meals. I got really skinny. My BF started cheating on me. My dad still doesn’t approve of me as a person. And I’m 24 now and still have an eating disorder but perhaps even suckier than all that, I’m 10kg overweight. You see bulimia fucks with your body so bad that when you try to get better, your body is in starvation mode and hold every calorie you give it. So yeah I try to eat 3 standard meals a day but I also binge maybe 10 times a week or more in between meals. My ED is not even keeping me thin any longer but it holds me back from so much. Dump your BF, maybe do some more exercise and if you can, see a dietician. If you do it the right way, you’ll be making your ex BF jealous and still enjoying food. This is hell.

      Switch to an all fruit (apple/pear/Bananna/ect.)
      Drink tons of coffee, lots of water,
      Allow yourself 6 min to eat ( not shovel ) whatever u craved the most that day
      Don’t worry about excersize, just Stick to the fruit thing, you will drop weight like mad then all the sudden everyone asks what your secret was and I always just say- pears. Cuz that’s all it was. I didn’t gomia to lose 55 lbs. I used fiber increase by like tenfold, I didn’t eat any crap- no cheating- at all. Three months and I lost 55 lbs. I am Ana and Mia by choice now- I love bad food- so I indulge- then I realize how dumb it was and purge. I either am starving or puking- but damn I look good doing it. Who coined the phrase “beauty is pain?” idk but I take it to heart- put that on my grave stone.

        You absolutely disgust me giving such awful advice to someone who doesn’t yet have an eating disorder. You ought to be steering non-sufferers away from these tips. The only thing I came here for was harm minimization and people like you fucking sicken me. If you really did have an eating disorder, you wouldn’t be encouraging others to feel the pain of an eating disorder. It is horrible and no matter how thin you get, you will never be happy.

    There is no lesser of the two evils here; both are god awful diseases. They manipulate your mind into thinking that your body is something that it isn’t. I suffered with an ED for 10 years and finally beat it 2 years ago. I refused to pass on to my daughter what my mother passed on to me. My body is not perfect but I learned to accept it. This is the first time in my life that I truly love me and the skin I’m in. It was not easy, and sometimes the habits try to come back, but, always remember ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. <3.

    You are ruining people’s lives all over by posting a site like this. Every person, every girl has a right to be themselves without fearing what others think. This doesn’t make them better, it hurts them emotionally and physically in the long run. To all of the girls, if your boyfriend said you are too fat, then he is not the right guy, and the right guy will love you for who you are. My girlfriend is struggling with this right now. She is skinny. She could gain weight and I would still love her exactly the same. The tips these sites advise are not right. My girlfriend is beautiful.

      the only advice I have for you, is save your money!! You’re going to need it when the enamel is gone from your teeth and your teeth rot out of your face. You will be very thin, but with a not so pretty face that has caved in cheeks because the teeth are gone….. (By the way, I used to purge; 17.000dollars to fix my teeth….) I still have an ED, but it doesn’t have me. I stay thin by watching what goes in my mouth.

I have gone from a 13 to an 11 in 9 days and I’m seeing tone in my stomach.

      If you’re worried about your insides and stuff then you can drink milk after purging, this helps because when you purge you get stomach acid all over your esophagus(?) and the milk helps soothe it and other parts of your digestive system.

      You seem to be having the same problem I was- no matter how hard I tried I could not throw up. Eventually, using two fingers I suceeded… but it wasn’t pretty. By the end I had trails of mascara going down my face. I had to shove the fingers as far as could possibly go and kind of wiggle them until i actually had vomit in my mouth. It was really gross, but after cleaning myself and looking at my stomach and thinking of all the benefits in the end I feel great :)

    Thanks for the extra tips… Been a binger/purger for 10 years now, all new tips help! It’s become so much a part of my life style that giving it up would be like losing an arm!! My daily life revolves around when to binge and when I can purge!!!!

    Hi.. i just tried purging for the first time and stood in the shower standing up, drank a cup of warm water before i started and began… i put two finger as far as the could go and nothing would happen.. i would gag but nothing but spit would leave my mouth… then i knelt and again nothing happened… so then i stood up and put three fingers down and after a really long time a tiny bit of what i ate came up and i started to get hopeful, so i tried again a few more times and a bit more came up and then i kept trying but nothing else would come up..

    i’m just wondering it im doing something wrong… is it supposed to take this long? it took me about 20 minutes just to get a tiny bit out.. was it the food? i was trying to purge out chicken nuggets i had eaten about 15 minutes before i tried to purge…

    is it because it was my first time?

    someone help, i dont know what im doing wrong
    and btw if someone wants to be like email penpals to encourage each other through, my email is tcfxo@hotmail.com

      Hey, welcome to my world… Everyone thinks that they can boost your self-esteem instantly by telling you you’re not fat, if only it were that easy. However, if you really do feel like the elephant in the room check out your B.M.I before choosing an extreme diet as the could possibly be right…

      Well basically the best advice i can give u is go into ur closet or bedroom on the opposite side farthest from whrre they r and lock the door. Put a towel on the floor and using a tooth brush or some thing besides ur fingers for easy cleanup purge into a gallon ziplock. Then just push the air out and seal. Put it in ur waste basket covered with other stuff and take out the trash. Then they wont hear u and u dont run the huge and also embarrassing risk of backing up the toilet.

    Hey ladies! If you are concerned about losing hair or your metabolism slowing down from purging pick up some Inositol. It’s a vitamin that does WONDERS. It speeds your metabolism and helps clear out your kidneys too. Not to mention strengthen nails and hair so you wont have that issue with your hair falling out in the shower. It’s super cheap and you can get it online or at your local drug store. One more perk? If you smoke to prevent hunger pains, this vitamin will reduce the probability of lung cancer. Like.. pretty drastically. Try and stay healthy as you can if you insist on purging. Much love!

    I’m really wondering if I have an eating disorder. I know you guys don’t have all the answers but I’m just confused.
    I’m 5″4 and 145 pounds… I constantly fantasize about being thin…. Sometimes I won’t eat… And sometimes I eat enough to keep healthy but not fat… But whenever I eat bad, I feel like I have to purge.. Sometimes I do. It isn’t that Im doing it to make me skinny… I just feel like I NEED to get the food out of my body.

    Well I nearly feel into anorexia about two years ago. Apparently.. I don’t believe i did. But I only ever eat like 1-2meals a day now. I’ve been self conscious about my weight and looks since I was like 11/12 years old. And just over a year ago I got depression and not long after began self harming. I know for a fact that anorexia and bulimia or the same in a way. After a while you get addicted, it starts as some sort of goal turns into an obsession then becomes an addiction. It seems like I always feel like self harm is never enough.. That I need to become anorexic again or bulimic because I deserve to suffer. I know it could kill me. Yes, I am a suicidal person, tried to commit suicide twice last November. Things like these aren’t things you want to start… Because once you get into them you get addicted. And even after treatment it never just goes away, it’s something you have to fight against your whole life. Recovery never takes a day off. I know I’m too late and too down to even want or care about getting better.. Even though It’s too late for me, it’s never too late for you.. To just stop. And just turn away. Not think about this.. I wish I could go back and change all if this everything I did the first time I harmed myself the first time I stopped eating the first time I tried to throw up.. But I can’t it just gets worse and worse. It’s like your all alone. No one cares. You feel like the world would be better with out you. Your worthless and deserve nothing. But it’s all lies, that you tell you self so much your certain its the truth. Please PLEASE don’t think about this… It would mean the world to know I could change someone’s mind. I don’t see why you would promote these serious disorders its just not right.. But the best part.. I’m only 15. And because of all of these disorders I’ve got no confidence anymore, lost so many friends but mostly ill have the rest if my life to battle these. But you don’t have too. You don’t have to end up like this. You not alone, never alone. Stay strong, all of you. You can overcome this.

      Dainelle- Here is an easier way to loose weight: Eat healthy foods and consume about 1000 calories a day. Exercise daily for at least 60 minutes. Keep that up for a few months and you will get that beautiful body you desire. And you will achieve your goal without life long damage and health issues. You can be beautiful, and thin, but purging, and ana are not the way to go. There are so many reasons why you shouldn’t. And honey you are probably beautiful, and you don’t need to loose weight. If you can see your ribs that is not a good sign. And it is not something to be proud of, at least 6 people care about you on this planet, and even though I don’t know you, I care. So take care of yourself bby. Stay strong and fight the urge.

    When people are suspecting your regular toilet visits…. use the “i have IBS” excuse.

    To help the purge… santise your hands with antibacterial gel… it’s so bitter and it will make you gag.

    If worried about your teeth…. this is an expensive option but I got my front teeth replaced with veneers.

    Always carry mouthwash and perfume.

    ive only tried Mia out a few times, and when i do, i can’t throw up.
    my friend from the mental hospital says it takes awhile before you actually can throw up, but still.
    i drank salt water too, and tons of warm water, pushed on my stomach, rocked back and forth, jumped all around, and it still wouldnt work :C

    Don’t try to lose weight. If ur bf likes you the way you are, then stay that way. You can loose him really easily if you develops an Ed. Instead, try to tone the body you have. Skim off a few extra pounds, exercise regularly. I have a workout plan every night and I am active throughout the week and with the help of proper diet I have managed to stay at 97 lbs. I am 5’4 btw.

      Lose the 60 pounds if you want, but this is not the way to do it kay? Be HEALTHY i can not stress this enough. Would you rather lose it on mia and gain it back in a month, or the right way and keep it off for years? Mia and ana are like heroin, it looks good and everybody is doing it, but once you get addicted and start overdoing it you end up floating upside down in a pool with your credit card that you use to crush coke with floating on your back? I you don’t get my analogy heroin is mia and the card is ana

    No one seems to be mentioning the most important part…. If youre just sticking your fingers down your throat and expecting a miracle, it isnt going to happen!!!!

    You need to drink so much water …. Like, drink until you cant physically handle any more. Then contract your stomach muscles!!!!! Almost like youre trying to force out a burp….. Do it hard, do it while youre standing over the toilet… I usually put one leg on top of the toilet and push my knee into my stomach and then i keep my stomach contracted while i push two fingers down my throat and then its not long before it comes gushing out. Also try coughing whilst gagging and moving your fingers vigorously and think of something disgusting. HOPE THIS HELPS

      it’s hard, it comes up in blobs that clog your throat, but at least you can usually tell when you get rid of it all. drick lots of water in between bites and you’ll be fine. personally, i don’t like to purge ice cream or cereal because it’s so liquidy that i can’t tell when it’s all out.

      It’s 5 30 Sunday morning I’ve been up since 3 am. I having fantasies again about what my life would have been like if I wasn’t over weight. Skinny is socially acceptable fat is nasty and undesirable. Maybe today will be the day I purge for the first time. Maybe I’ll take control of this mess of a body or maybe the fantasy will remain an in obtainable dream. I’m scared, what if purging hurts? What if I can’t make my body empty its self out? If I failed at Mia I would surrender my life to death. I can’t live like this any more I’ve officially tipped the scale at over 300 i pounds. I am a looser unworthy of love. I’m uugly. I couldn’t get a man to notice me if my life depended on it. I dress horribly. I litter lay have no friends I am completely worthless

        Now now- its okay! I was 189lbs on jan 1st 2010. In 2011 I decided I would rather shoot myself in the face than eat One More piece of cake . Two months of pears ( fresh ) Every Single time I got hungry ( and a nightly reward of whatever I was craving for 10 minutes only ) now I’m at 134! Tool 3 months…. Purging keeps the lbs off….

    oh my god this is so fucked up. right now I’m sick and weak, too tired to even get out of fucking bed, I’m starving but I’m too afraid to eat because I don’t want to throw up. I’ve relapsed hardcore. I fast every threes days where inbetween I restrict and purge. I’m not bulimic, my criteria is too confusing so the docs threw EDNOS in my fat fucking face.
    I hate how my teeth have turned out, they used to be so pretty and now they’re yellow and you can see through my top front teeth and they ache. When I move my tongue over them they move………I’ve tried my best to take care of them. But when you’ve been purging for 9 fucking years, shit changes.
    …my ex had told me he is worried that by the time I’m fucking 30 I’ll be wearing dentures. EATING DISORDERS ARE NOT A FUCKING BEAUTY TREND.
    They’re horrible. I have no friends, I have no LIFE, my parents treat me like I’m some strange lab rat, people constantly judge me and treat me like I’m some STUPID, SUPERFICIAL BITCH because of it.
    I look at the scale in terror now–it literally makes me fucking cry. Mirrors constantly mock me. I bruise easily; have sores on my knuckles. I’m anemic. My immune system is basically non-existant. I have no fucking muscle mass. I never sleep. Constantly pray and wish I could die.

      Why I do this???? And continue to?? Eating disorders are very strange. And I grew up around very SICK people. Always made fun of me, especially directed towards my intellect and (of course) my looks. At age 11 I was a fat ass. People love to be cruel to girls who are overweight, unnecessarily cruel. My parents forced me on a slim fast diet and made me take martial arts I guess because they were embarrassed that their 11-year-old daughter was a fat ass.

      Age 13 I started purging, but I didn’t have tips and tricks. It just happened. Eating disorders run in my family, both my aunts were anorexic and bulimic, my mother…idk wtf she was but she purges and she said that she has quit but i beg to differ. Anyways, I started fasting and stuff honestly (and selfishly) for very superficial reasons, subconsciously I believe I just wanted to torture myself because I resented myself. I cut myself, people were mocking me for this, too, calling me a freak where my parents threw me into therapy just so they could have someone tell me I was doing it for attention.

      If it’s for attention, OBVIOUSLY it’s a cry for help…….stupid social worker…..

      BUT. I fast now because I have control. Eating disorders take you in and slowly bleed you to death, spiritually and physically. It’s so funny. Because all I wanted to be was socially acceptable and likable ((which, ironically, I was))…and now I’m so socially withdrawn it’s pathetic. I can’t be around people. They freak me out, I feel like they are constantly judging me. People say I’m thin but I’m ashamed of my body so instead of wearing pretty clothes I hide in gigantic hoodies.

      I know I’m being really harsh. But I actually care about you guys, though I don’t know you. This DISEASE is not something to toy around with. It’ll fucking kill you and you’ll be living in denial of who you are and eventually become nothing but a fucking shell.

      It’s horrible.

      If you can’t purge, good for you. You’ll still have your goddamn teeth by the time you’re 30. and not scare the shit out of everyone who you thought hated you but loves you unconditionally. You’ll be able to fucking LIVE.

      I hope one day I’ll be able to TRULY laugh again. I haven’t had fun without the help of drug abuse in YEARS. I’m 22 but I feel like I’m fucking 70.

        I HAVE MORE TO ADD TO THIS EXTREMELY LONG COMMENT THAT IS NOW MORPHING INTO A NOVEL. lol. Being extremely skinny…you get treated just as bad as being fat, if not worse. For one thing, douche bag men LOVE the scrawny ones. My abusive asshole ex from a few years back LOVED IT when I was starving to death and bed-ridden with mono for 2 years. Of course I tried to kick the nasty ED habit because I ended up with mono AND swine flu…pretty scary…and he ended up abusing the heck out of me.

        Another thing–girls…are very mean to scrawny girls. Most likely due to jealousy, which is sick as heck considering that the person they’re jealous of are killing themselves and hate themselves more than anyone could even TRY to define hate. A lot of people engrossed into this ED hell REALLY UNDERSTANDS self-loathing. Anyways, I lost friends due to them being jealous of my suicide. Got called “Anorexic Bitch” all the time and people were constantly pointing and laughing at how stupid my pants began to look on me because I lacked an ass.

        I wish my life was a tivoed program so I could rewind back to when I was 13 and continue to eat lettuce and exercise. I would still be fucked up, but nothing like this.

    I have a recommendation as well, i dont eat during the day, secretly skip brekkie, dont eat anything during the day, but at home my parents force me to eat dinner.(they dont know im an ana mia person) SO, i eat dinner then say im going to have a shower. Which is completley normal to have a shower every day right? i juat have mine after dinner so it isnt suspicious anyway.
    I eat only the vegetables in dinner (i became vegan for the sake of ana mia), then go to the shower and purge them up, IN THE SHOWER. Its easiest because everyone is still downstairsa having dinner and cant hear over the fan and shower water. I purge into the shower hole and rub it down the shower hole (disgusting i know but it covers any evidence right?)
    and no-one knows i ate nothing all day and my friends as school suspect nothing because im stil to fat for anyone to care :)
    So ya, try purging in the shower.

    Hey so I am soo new to this whole thing and I’m not even sure if I belong (here or anywhere).
    I have PCOS and so I gained a little over 55lbs in about 9 months. I have been put on a drug to help with the symptoms however it made me sick. Really sick. I spent the first 4-5 weeks throwing up at least every other day.
    The side effects (vomiting) have now stopped but I cant stop myself. I feel like I need to keep vomiting because when induced by the pill i was on I started to lose weight.
    I have no self control when it comes to eating. I just can not help myself. (A side effect of PCOS is uncontrollable cravings for carbs) By purging I have a way of controlling the effects of my binging if that makes sense.
    I have little to no clue about ana/mia.?? and I don’t know if I count as being mia but I would love to hear from anyone who has any thoughts on this.

      I’m not judging you for turning to a proana/mia site, but I don’t think an eating disorder will help you feel better. With PCOS, you already have issues with hormones and possibly fertility. An eating disorder will just make that worse and it will add on health problems ten times worse that what you’re going through now. Have you talked to your doctor about the medicine making you sick and the urge to keep throwing up? Try a clean eating diet with fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, and some carbs (your body needs all of these things to function properly) and get yourself on a healthy exercise routine. If you don’t have an eating disorder now, please do not start one- for your own health.

        I have discussed my options with my Dr unfortunately the only other medications they could give me put my blood pressure through the roof or i had an allergic reaction to (woke up one morning covered in a rash).
        My problem is that I got so used to being sick after eating on the meds that now it just seems like a routine as strange as that sounds. Although i dont feel sick I will make myself sick in order to feel normal. I know how screwed up that sounds..
        I do eat a very good balanced breakfast and lunch but dinner is my issue. Anything I eat after 4pm is purged almost straight after I eat it. So I’m not starving myself and i take multi vitamins etc but i just have this weird …habbit?

    Hi girls,

    anything to say about facial red spots on your face?
    I’m not a common “puker” but here and there, lately a tiny bit more.
    today I’ve noticed theses tiny tiny red spots around my eyes and cheekbones, and after researching some online I saw it might be from throwing up, which I did last evening.
    Always when I puke I feel my face are getting swollen and my eyes as well, and if not alone I can’t do it because of it. My lips, everything is swollen.
    it’s like I felt I through up quite more than ever.

The pounds started falling off and this was AFTER having twins and another baby less than a 17months later. I quickly dropped 25lbs more than my pre pregnancy weight (which was already considered anorexic bmi) there are healthier safer ways, these products kept me alive I’m sure of it!

    To all you people who suffer from an eating disorder or use Ana/Mia to come closer to death: Let me give you a virtual hug! I feel very sorry for you, please try to find professional help! And will you do me and your conscience a favor: Don’t give pro Ana/Mia advice to healthy young girls who just come here, because they feel a little too fat. To all you teenage girls: You are overweight? Really? Go, ask a doctor about that! And if she/he tells you that it’s true, she/he will surely give you the best advice ever: Eat healthy, exercise more!

      I 100% agree with this statement, i’m doing an essay on censorship in the blogosphere and this site definitely proves that the internet needs censorship. People should not be giving such awful advice to already insecure people about their weight. My sister passed away because of websites like this one, and believe me she had no intention of such problems occurring because of her eating habits. And i’m sure no one (or at least most people) on here do not want to end up with problem in the future when there are so many other ways to get thinner and healthier. It will just take more effort than throwing up what you eat, but believe me there are much worse things in life than believing yourself fat.

    Ok, listen. These sites are made for true pro ana/ Mia believers. If you’re not one of us, I’m politely asking you to leave us the fuck alone. We choose to be here and we choose this lifestyle. Now I am sorry your sister died and I’m not just saying that, but because your sister wen too far does not justify you tryin to take away the rights I have to free speech. No one can tell me what I can and can’t say. There are no master rules to the Internet and there is no owner. There is no one that can say this belongs to me and I say you can’t have ana/Mia sites on it. If people want to be thin and beautiful, why can’t they get tips to change their lifestyle from others like me who have successfully used these techniques to become the person I want to be? I am aski g you now to please leave us to do as we wish.

    Ok so I am an older female who is pro-mia. I gained weight after my old dieting and had kids and gained a bit more. I had gastric bypass surgery. It’s easier to purge because a lot of foods make me ill on my own or a little effort. So I have been at it again since 2010 off and on but it’s getting more involved. Today I binged on ice cream and I could not purge at all. I was so mad. Anyway I tried until my throat was raw. So any tips for us with weight loss surgery? I know that a lot of people who do have the surgery run the risk of an eating disorder. I will help anyone I can in this area as well. Also looking for a mia buddy gemini73j@hotmail.com oh and I don’t care about dying and have thought of it before so that’s not an issue for me.

    A story I wrote about being bulimic. Maybe it will help in some way….

    “I’m so proud of your sex life”
    Those words flash over and over in my mind like a strobe light and I can’t see past them. My sex life, that chain of one night stands coiled tight around my throat. That sleaziness, the poisoned sweat streaked over my grotesque flabby flesh and the smell, the feeling that won’t come off my skin no matter how hard I scrub and burn myself under the shower nozzle. Going home with anyone. Fucking anyone who acknowledges my presence; glances over my body to measure its worth and takes it anyway.
    I violently grind up food in my mouth and vomit, empty myself into the toilet, imaging that I can make myself disappear, force myself to forget. I want to be pure but his words mark and scribble over me. Blood swells within me. My feet, my fists slam into the walls, against the side of the bookshelf until it crashes down onto the linoleum, nails jutting out its back like a wounded animal. I wish I could stick his face on those rusty nails.
    The image of him sitting there across the table from me in a café in Berkeley mouthing those words between sips of coffee while the memories from a dozen one night stands claw their way inside of me and I feel poisoned, ruined. I sink down into a rumpled pile of bones and worn out muscles. Worthless.
    This time I hoped it would be different. I really did. He and my stepmom would be here for a day. One day, too much damage. My shrink put me on Prozac just before he came up, to somehow get me through it. But there is no barrier large enough to keep him from penetrating, implanting himself in my mind. His words are like a virus. They enter on sounds waves and swell out into my thighs and abdomen. At first I almost felt safe this time. It even started off well. No comments about my weight, throughout breakfast. No judgments. He seemed proud of me. And he was. Those words crawled out of his mouth in his calm, stoned out drawl and sliced through me: “I’m so proud of your sex life.”
    With his words these images flashed through me, like a video on MTV. Tall, blond, nice guy Scott painfully taking my virginity and leaving me the next morning. Mekeldoodum, the cross country star, my first love, sleeping with me and placing me under the shadow of his ideal dream woman, the sister of a friend of mine. Steve forcing my head down onto his penis at four in the morning in a room of guys, friends of mine, criticizing my lack of technique, commenting on the shape and size of my breasts. My friends wouldn’t speak to me for a month. It was my fault, not Steven’s. I had stained our relationship, fouled them with my excessive sexuality. The video ends with a still image of my body, fat rupturing the seams of my jeans, protruding over the top of my belt.
    I’ll never be one of the beautiful people that glare down from the billboards, walk past me on the street; acting like they own the world and I’m a pathological reject woman sullying it. My own words play over in my head like a broken record: “You’re so ugly, out of control; disgusting fat slob. How could anyone love you?” I violently shovel food down my throat with my hand clenching onto my thigh but the words won’t go away. The food tastes horrible: dried out institutional cookies, extra salty potato chips, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It’s hard to swallow. I can never get enough. My stomach is about to burst. I hate myself. “How could anyone love you?”
    I lock myself in a bathroom stall on the first floor of the dormitory, near the entrance. There’s no one else in the room and I’m relieved. I guzzle half a can of diet coke then pull my arms hard against my stomach to force the food to come out as I bend over the toilet. I watch the food coming out of my mouth, feel the back of my throat going numb. I punch my stomach over and over again to get it all out. I have to get all of the food out. I hate my body. “You are so ugly. You are disgusting.” It’s so impossible to empty my body; become pure. I get to the point when I can’t throw up anymore so I go up the seven flights of stairs to my room, take a scalding hot shower, brush my teeth and curl up in bed, groggy from vomiting, skin pink and irritated. I just want to forget. The room reminds me of the visit. The bookshelf broken on the floor with all my books sprawled out forms a barricade at the side of my bed.
    Near the top of the pile is a letter from my dad telling me about his first year in college: crying and masturbating in his room to the image of his girlfriend back home. He is trying to help me. He means well. He tells me I should fuck around, an echo of his own words ten years ago. What am I supposed to feel? “They are only words”, I think. They push me over the edge into a labyrinth of food and one night stands. Nothing to hold onto. All I want is for those words to go away. They multiply, open up gaps. I learn to make them up myself. I tell myself the same stories until there is no one to blame for my anger except myself and my body. I bring to life a monster inside of myself. That self-destroying, shouting monster ripping his way through my silence, forcing food into my mouth, giving away my body to strangers. I don’t eat for pleasure, only to satiate this huge beast, to make his stories go away. If only I could get high enough to numb myself, insulate myself from his torture, slit my wrists and feel the blood flowing out. Then my body would be mine. I could make it mine. Maybe that would be pleasure.
    I look at my body in the mirror. The flesh expands, skin becomes blotchy as I stand there. I am losing myself. I don’t know what I look like. I see myself as my father sees me – rounded and sexualized; a huge ugly mass of fatty tissue; a walking orifice. I cut myself off from him and he assumes different shapes, appearing distorted in other faces, other bodies. Each time I think it’s new. Each time I imagine that this is not my dad. Someone will protect me. He will wrap me in his arms and take me into another world where I am beautiful and loved and whole. The words are different but in the end they all turn out the same. I give him my body and he leaves me with nothing. He leaves his shame and guilt on my body. And I can never be pure or clean again. I become a whore, a fat disgusting whore, serpents for hair and poison in my blood.
    Maybe I have asked for too much. That day in the McDonald’s parking lot I thought I could feel attractive. I was drunk and my friends and I had been smoking pot. It was the first time I’d ever gotten stoned. It was strange. I had a hard time getting words out of my mouth. They came out all jumbled. I sat in the back of a jeep with this guy, Ron, smoking a cigarette. He kept touching me so I blew smoke in his face. He told me that meant I wanted to sleep with him. So I did. We tumbled out of the jeep and walked around the parking lot looking for a “safe” place. The asphalt ground underneath the dumpster was too visible, behind the car was too obvious. So we climbed up over a wall and lay down on the ground. There were houses up above us on the hillside. Someone must have seen. He yanked down my shorts and underwear. I was too messed up to do anything myself. And in a few minutes it was over. I pulled my shorts back on and walked into McDonald’s to wait for my ride back to school.
    I thought I would feel beautiful. Someone wanted me at least. My drunkenness saved me from terrorizing myself that night, but over the next couple of weeks I began to see myself differently. Shame crawled under my skin. I convinced myself that I was some kind of nymphomaniac. I slept with another guy the following weekend to establish this truth. I became proud of my sexual exploits. I thought that was what I wanted. I drank more and more so I wouldn’t have to think. And for the few minutes each guy took to seduce me, to drag me onto a bed or onto some other flat surface, I was beautiful in his eyes, attractive enough to touch anyway. I gave my body away because I thought that was what they wanted. Then they would love me.
    I pull on a pair of jeans and a sweater, walk out into the orange fluorescent twilight until I am surrounded by people I recognize from the dorm, my friend Shani. We crash some party and I start taking swigs off a bottle of tequila being passed around. I drink about half the bottle. A hand pulls me downstairs and I’m lying down with this guy’s tongue shoved down my throat before I realize what is going on. His body is pressed tightly against mine and I can’t move.
    The lights come on and my friend Shani walks in, sees what is going on, maybe she sw him drag me down there.
    “Hey Morgan, you want to go? Do you want to be here?”
    “No.”
    She pulls the guy off of me and shoves him out the door, not without resistance from him.
    “You fucking asshole, you stay the fuck away from her!”
    She helps me to my feet and I lean up against her. She wraps her arm around me, holding me up.
    “Let’s get out of here.”
    “Okay.”
    We leave to go to another party. We end up at a fraternity house across the street from the dorm. I sit down on a couch and she goes out to the back to grab some beer for us.
    “What an asshole. What did he think he was going to get away with?”
    “I don’t know. It’s my fault. I let him take me down there. I let him.” I feel myself starting to cry, try to stop it by drinking my beer.
    “Hush, it’s okay. It’s all over. It’s not your fault. He was a nothing.” And he walks into the entrance room where we are sprawled out across the couch, sits down directly across from me. A gorgeous woman sits down on his lap. She is so much thinner than I am. I slam down the rest of my beer before I stumble out the door, trying to drown out the realization that I mean so little to this guy. I didn’t make an impact on him. The memory of his body trapping me, forcing me onto the bed will be imprinted on my mind forever. And no matter how many times Shani tells me it isn’t my fault I still feel the guild living, breathing, expanding in the flesh of my stomach, hips and thighs.
    I fall asleep wondering when this will end. In my drunken haze I imagine a day when I can look at myself in the mirror and not be ashamed or afraid. I’ll be beautiful and respected like the other woman sitting on his lap, like the models in Vogue magazine. A day without vomiting, when I can ignore my hunger, ignore my anger. A day when my body will be mine. I guess the models aren’t really happy. Their lives are probably just as fucked up as mine. But at least their bodies are worth something even if they lose ownership of them. I imagine what it would be like to be the ideal woman, magnificently clothed and perfumed; sexualized in the photographs but admired; idolized; acting out this cultural fiction. They look safe, like no one would ever hurt them. They can’t feel like I do. I’d do anything to live out that fantasy of power and pleasure. No matter what it would take. Maybe then someone would love me. People would have respect for me.
    Even my dad.
    He shut up about my weight once, when I was skinny. I got thin enough that I could have been a model. I was skinner than most of them. That year he bought me a bikini. He said he’d buy me one every year. He was so proud of my body, as though it were an extension of his own. My weight seemed to affect him personally. It was an affront to his ego when I was overweight, the ultimate flattery when I was thin. My step mom hated me for that. She still hasn’t forgiven me, except that now she’s a skinny as I was.
    My eyes are swollen from crying in the night, my hands shaking from all of the beer and tequila. The sun soaks through my black down comforter, leaving a thin layer of sticky, toxic sweat on my body. I get up and throw on an extra-large sweatshirt my dad bought for me. At breakfast I gather as much food as will fit on my tray, grabbing donuts and sausage and eggs and Coca-cola. I can feel people’s eyes following me through the dining commons. They watch me. All they see is this out of control body sucking up food like a high powered vacuum cleaner. “No self-respect.” I go back again and again to gather more food, cramming it down my throat with a violence no one can imagine. “You are such a fuck up. It’s written all over your body.”
    This time there is someone else in the bathroom and I have to sit and wait in the stall until she leaves. I have to keep this dark secret, the horrible monster that lives within me. In boarding school everyone knew. I used to throw up in the sink in my room, to try to keep it a secret, until one day the sink filled up with this gray, mucky water that spilled out into my room and the room next door. No one ever spoke to me about that. I could feel their judgment through the walls of my room, in their whispered conversations.
    Here I am an anonymous bulimic, filling the bathroom with the stench of my vomit. Until they connect my face with the sounds and smells emitting from the bathroom at least no one will know that I am crazy. Sometimes that makes it even lonelier. No one knows how much I want to be thin. If only they could see me now, the time and energy I spend throwing up. I have no time for anything else.

    I was wondering how to purge some of my food but not all of it. I was thinking about half. I was wondering if i should wait to digest some of it or just purge and see how much comes up. I ate too many calories but i want to stay decently full so i don’t overeat.

    i am worried about a friend. She says she has IBS, however a few times i have noticed her go to the bathroom not long after eating.

    a couple of weeks ago we were at court. we had lunch with a couple other friends and as soon as we got near the court she said she wanted to use the bathroom. she was gone quite a while and then i went to use the bathroom myself. however as soon as i opened the door, she coughed (that embarrassing cough – clearing throat) and flushed the toilet.

    she came out of the cubicle looking flushed and began immediately taking about the case we were attending. although i was suspicious, i said nothing. i also notice that she buys a lot of chewing gum. having read about IBS, it says gum makes you gassy which isnt good for the IBS.

    last week we went shopping and talking in general, she was saying she doesnt know where the toilet paper goes. she buys them in large quantities (bargain prices), although she lives with her daugher. at the same time she said she had to get toothpaste (even though the friend we were staying at, had 2 full tubes)

    she is of sleight build but actually eat her food fast.

    You may not be able to answer my curiousity however, i would appreciate your feedback.

    I have to say this, but to people who are seeking out pro ana/mia as a method of weight loss- this is not where you will find it. An eating disorder gives you the illusion that you are controlling it while it controls you all the while- you may think that it is your choice to eat unbelievably small amounts, or to binge and force yourself to vomit, but both of these things go directly against human survival instinct. Please, I beg you, do not try to convince yourself otherwise- both of these behaviors WILL kill you in the long run. While they are very satisfying sources of validation in the short term- I know this as a recovering anorexic and bulimic- the sense of accomplishment in weight loss is the most artificial sense of accomplishment possible. Please, turn away from these behaviors, and even if you do not want to talk to someone about why you want to engage in behaviors that are IN NO WAY beneficial to you, try to do something you enjoy and gives you satisfaction. If you are truly anorexic, no amount of weight loss will ever satisfy you- you will always know that the feeling of achievement is just around the corner, just 5 pounds away. If you are a bulimic, you will continue to turn to binging and purging, regardless of how much it hurts and how much you hate yourself for it. Please, do not put yourself in the position where these things can take over your life.
    When I got my eating disorder, I was well aware what an eating disorder was, and I was well aware of a community of people that viewed their eating disorders as lifestyle choices. When I started to go over the edge, I truly believed I could stop whenever I wanted, and the only reason I didn’t was because I didn’t want to (and of course I was not thin enough). The first time that I realized something was desperately wrong was when my best friend begged me to seek help for something that I believed I could not possibly have because I thought I was in control of it. I am not yet recovered, even after intensive treatment.
    I guess what I’m saying is that pro ana/mia is an illusion. Whatever compels you to engage in a dangerous behavior is a completely real reason, but there is no such thing as an eating disorder under control. If you honestly believe your world would collapse if you could not lose weight/purge, I would encourage you to seek help. If you are looking for a good way to lose weight quickly, ana/mia is your absolute worst choice.

    I feel like some of the people leaving comments don’t really understand the concept of Ana/Mia. It’s not just a quick weight loss plan or something to be messed around with. I’m 20 years old and have been Ana/Mia for nearly 5 years now and honestly I feel like I’ve wasted years doing this. The funny thing is that now I can’t stop.
    This isn’t a joke or a game and it’s not something that should be taken lightly. The vast majority of Ana/Mias will tell you that they didn’t start doing this because they want to shift some weight but because they need to feel like they have some control over their life. Oddly enough, it’s just another thing that is controlling them.
    I guess what I’m saying is really think about it before you even entertain the idea of purging or restricting because it’s really hard to stop once you’ve started, even when you want to.

    I read somewhere that starving after binging and over exercising can be a way to purge with out throwing up. I have done so well too i eat good and exercise for a few days a week to throw off my husband and others then usually on weekends or days i have lots of stuff to do i starve and i over exercise. if i have stuff to do it keeps my mind from thinking about food and sometimes if i get weak i try to drink a soda or eat one thing that has sugar in it to help or sometimes i eat a bite of chicken because the protein helps the weakness too. if anyone asks why i haven’t ate i just say i was too busy to notice. i just want to be happy with myself and i’m afraid even if i get to 100 lbs again i will not be able to stop because no matter how much i weigh it will never be enough or “less”. i will still hate myself and the way i look. i also don’t want my 3 little girls to think like i do because i think they are beautiful no matter if the baby does have a little bit of pudgy fat. she’s a baby and that is the way she is supposed to be and i don’t want to rub off on them and make them a afraid of fat as i am. my mother was always big and she always told me to never get fat like her because it was bad and shameful.now since i gained weight after have 3 kids i feel as if i am living my fear of being fat even though my dr says i am healthy now than i was before i had kids at 100 lbs and 5 foot 4 and a half. even when i was 150 sh said i was healthy now i’m down to 135 and losing more each week.

      Hi Heather. I can completely relate to what you are going through. I just had my second child 9 months ago. I am desperately trying to lose the baby weight. I don’t want my baby girl growing up with body image issues but I am completely obsessed with trying to get these pounds off. I fear that I have an addictive personality I have been purging for about 2 weeks and I am completely sucked into this process. I have to do it at least once everyday. If I can lose 25 to 30 pounds I will be ecstatic. I need a pro mia buddy for support email me at jessica.gallo100@yahoo.com

    I might be alone on this, but I’m curious if anyone uses purging as I do… I am NOT bulimic, but I use purging as part of my healthy life style. I don’t usually do it every day, just a few times a week. I work out daily, eat healthily, and I’ve changed my life by losing over 80 pounds in 6 months. My doctor is even impressed by how healthy I’ve become. I know most of you here are using it to become skin and bones, but I’ve been using it as a tool and a small part of my healthy life to beat obesity. I don’t go on crazy binges, but if I slip up, purging is my safety net. Am I alone in doing this?
    I love it and I won’t ever stop.

    Purging cannot be a part of a healthy lifestyle- that statement is simply a contradiction. WHat purging does to your body can destroy you in ways that are even more violent than starving yourself. I assume that your doctor does not know that you purge, because even though it may have helped your struggle with obesity, YOU CANNOT BE HEALTHY if you are forcing yourself to throw up. I am not a doctor, but I have been through the diagnosis process many times and I would say that you are THE DEFINITION of an eating disordered person, mostly because (and I’m sorry to be so blunt) everything you are saying is THE VERY DEFINITION OF DENIAL. I cannot stress this point enough: purging is ALWAYS unhealthy, regardless of whether you are overweight, normal weight, or underweight. You say that you purge a few times a week- usually for a bulimia diagnosis doctors look for two or more times a week. Please, I do not expect you to trust any stranger over the internet, but some part of you knows that you are hurting yourself by purging. Please reach out to someone, your doctor, or talk to a friend or family member.
    And before you dismiss me as someone who knows nothing about what you are going through, believe me that I know what it is like to feel that I cannot live without purging, that without it my life would fall apart. I spent a significant period of time convinced that with purging, I could fix everything. It really does not work, and that feeling that something truly good is just around the corner as long as you continue to lose weight never changes- you are always hoping for something false, something that never comes, and along the way you are hurting yourself. I have heart arrhythmia now, and I nearly had multiple heart attacks when I was purging. Now I have to have an EKG every month to make sure that my heart beats regularly, even though I have not purged for months. Stomach ulcers, acid reflux, random blackouts, emotional instability, insomnia, mania, and a bunch of other things also come along with it. You have been purging for a while so you might already experience a lot of these. Please do not think to yourself for a moment that you can avoid the impact of purging.

    That means your body has not lost its will to survive, to keep down nutrition you give it. Please understand, your throat tenses up because your body wants to live- your desire to live is not something that you should try to stop.

    The waiting 15-20 minutes was very helpful because they already asked me why is it that after I eat I run to the bathroom. I made up that it was to brush my teeth because I don’t want to go to the dentist. I am 20 years old still living at home while I look for a job and it’s really hard when parents watch whenever I skip food. Not to mention the home cameras.

    Hello, im 16 and my whole teenage life i have been comparing my body to every girl i see. I have been called overweight, chubby, “curvy” but ive never been called skinny. Ive tried not eating but my mum caught me out and told me id just gain more weight, ive tried working out but i have really terrible knees and bad back.pains, dieting never works for me either. I just want to be skinny and perfect. People always joke about me being fat like my friends and family and when i say its kinda offending me they say something like “oh you know were only kidding, your so pretty and skinny” when they clearly see im not. I hate my size and i only recently starting purging, i love the feeling of a empty stomach and not feeling quilty after a bit of food. Best thing i ever discovered. :)

    Me and my friend both purge but we are still in school and it’s effecting my performance in gym. I don’t purge just because I want to be skinny I also purge because I feel I have to. My stomach feels queasy all day and today my gym teacher called my dad about my participation and now my dad is really mad at me for not playing but I cant tell him I purge and I take meds for stomach pains and spasms what should I do if I feel i cant play and since my teachers a female dog I cant do crap about him telling my dad and getting my pet taken away and this will sound rly dumb but my cats helped me alot with my problems

    Bulimia , anorexia . Are hard things to live with . You will NEVER be happy . NEVER accept what you body looks like is good enough .when you lose the amount of weight you do so quickly , your brain doesn’t recognize the work you put in to get it . But when you work really hard , eat clean , train hard . You get rewarded with amazing results . Then your brain sees the hard work & dedication enough to make you more confident & self accepting . And when doctors get you on a tract to healthy eating . you will gain it back quicker. People also will look at you disgusted and will judge you . but when you work hard they will ask for tips , congratulate you , & will think of you as an inspiration. The choices you make will hurt you , it’s just a fact . And if it gets to far . You will die .

      That may be, but can tell you from experience I was a hell of a lot happier skinny & unhealthy than fat & unhealthy. And I tried the whole workout and eat healthy n over the year I spent I didn’t lose enough to be worth it.

    I was mia for 6 years, I had no support and ruined my teeth. I was hospitalized 4 times for dehydration and “mysterious nausea” according to my parents. I didn’t even know what it was when I started, all I knew was how disgusting I felt after eating. After high school I quickly married a man who convinced me to stop. I regret that relationship every day. I went from 113 lbs to 192 in a matter of 4 years. I am obsessed with food and I absolutely hate my “new” self. So here I go again. I just wanted to say thank you for posting all these tips I never knew and to have support from all of you lovely ladies.

    HELP! I’m going to another country to stay with my friend and her family and I have no idea how I will purge. The apartment we’re staying in is pretty small and I doubt I can throw up quietly enough to get away with it. They’re going to expect me to eat meals with them and I can’t exactly wander away right after. My friend’s parents aren’t the type of people who will accept a person saying they are never hungry or who only eats a few bites of food. I know the trick of chewing food and spitting it into a napkin and I guess I’m just looking for any other tips like that. I just need ways to not come back fat!

    Yes, there is something you can do to protect your teeth. After purging, drink a glass of water then take two tums. I you chew them up really well and make them sort of a paste in your mouth then let that sit on your teeth for a few moments then just swallow it. I know it sounds gross, but it works. Ten wait about an hour to brush your teeth. This is what u do and I hope it works for you!

        Hi.
        Ive read on the web that its often best to throw up between 15 and 40 minutes after eating because the food will already be digested and calories already absorbed by the body after 3 hours. it is a lot easier if u do it straight away though because the food is closer to the surface!

    Hi there,
    I think I am becoming bulimic. My fiancee left me to go back to South Africa 3 days ago. Ever since then, I have just been so unhappy and stressed that when ever I eat I feel so sick afterwards, that I make myself sick. I dont need to put my fingers down my throat or anything, my feelings of complete despair trigger my gag reflex and it comes naturally. I had an eating disorder when I was 9, and was sick/didnt eat all the time for 2 years due to bullying. I was so young though I dont really remember details other than being sick all the time cos I was always upset. Im not doing any of this to be thin even tho I am overweight. I am just so miserable that I dont really care about this happening to me. All I am scared of is my teeth rotting. I have only just got them fixed, and currently wear a retainer. I take it out before I vomit. I just wanted to know if using enamel toothpaste and taking antacids really help? And Id also like to know if bulimia would ever stop you from being able to have children. Thanks. x

    I absolutely understand. I am 32 and have just considered restricting and purging an option to lose some fast pounds. So I have recently tried both for the first time. I guess I dont care so much about myself, but it makes me so sad to read about young girls doing this to themselves. I realize that the world is cruel and women that are overweight are not well respected. However I really wish we could push back against these expectations and degradations and allow ourselves to be happy. Well, like I said, I dont care much about myself. Ive always been athletic and fine with my appearance, despite the pressure to always be thinner. But you poor girls (and women and boys and men too). I hope you can one day love yourself and your life and feel loved and just be happy. Fuck what anyone else thinks about you, and especially what you think they think about you. Its your right to enjoy this life to its fullest.

    They say throwing up and starving yourself is unhealthy, I’ll tell you what’s unhealthy: being fat as hell, feeling bad about your looks to the point you can’t even look at your own reflection, hating yourself. That’s the real unhealthy thing. I’m not pro anything and not telling anyone to do it, I’m just expressing how I feel about myself, it may sound crazy thing to do but, oh yeah, I’m pretty much mental. I wish I could really look at myself in a mirror and be happy with what I see, like my looks for once, I really wish I could. I also wish people wouldn’t judge me and compare me to my “perfect looking” sister, I’m done with all that bullshit. But I know I’m gonna make it, someday I’ll be beautiful and skinny and tiny and hopefully, get to love myself. The storm will pass, I will finally be able to feel confident enough and smile. I’m really looking forward to being worthy some day, you know? just good enough.
    Along with my body fat all my problems and self-destruction thoughts will go away, I want this so much!

    Also, I wear retainers. They are the type that are made of clear plastic, and fit snugly over the teeth like a second skin. When I purge I have been wearing them, and when Im done I will take them out and wash them and then rinse my mouth and teeth with lots of water and then put them back in. Do you think they will help to protect my teeth? And I have started to get a sore throat, do you think if I took antacids it will help with the soreness of my throat? Any comments I would greatly appreciate. Thank you xx

    Hello, I’m Christina.
    I’m a married mother of 2 little girls and I’ve been bulimic for … 20 yrs or so.
    I first started because my mom remarried for the 3rd time and the new dad was critical of my weight at 10 yrs old. He would call me things like steak hoagie and porkchop. I at first just cut dwn on eating an mom would put my dinner in the micro while I’d sneak out at midnight to quickly eat, he caught me an made oink noises. So started my purging. Since then I now have dentures at 35 yrs old, I had really pretty teeth from the beginning but knew nothing about tips and obviously in my day there was no one to talk to that didn’t just say ” STOP STOP STOP!”
    I’M COMMENDING YOU FOR MAKING THIS WEB SITE!!
    YOU HERE TO CALL NAMES AND SAY GET HELP HAVE THE WRONG IDEA!!!
    Let’s face it, I had a shitty mom and I was obviously uneducated in health and exercise, beyond all the things you all can say was WRONG with me or WRONG with the parenting I had, that’s all the past and I started a lifestyle that could of been a lot LESS DAMAGING!!!
    I didn’t have the friend like girls here have in this site to help me along my way, o give me tips and tricks to keep my body well while going thru what ever I’m going thrue! Stop trying to put these girls down and be glad they have an EDUCATED WAY OF DOING IT WHERE IT CAUSE LESS HARM THAN WITHOUT THIS KNOWLEDGE!!
    No one is saying ” GO PUKE AN KILL YOURSELF!!!”
    You think ANYONE HERE actually ENJOYS HIDING ,PUKING,TASTING IT, WORRYING ABOUT IT or FEELING UGLY AN FAT WITHOUT DOING IT? We DON”T!!!!
    Look, WE are going to do it anyway, it’s like when you got something in your head, it’s THERE, so wouldn’t you prefer if your CHILD is going to do something either IN FRONT of you so you know she is safe and doing it in the least dangerous way or HIDE BEHIND YOUR BACK and do it ungawdly awful ways and DIE! Don’t say “you’d rather she not do it at all”, that’s just stating the obvious,
    WE ALL wish it never started but it’s here now, I’ve battled it for 20+ yrs ok.
    Leave these girls alone and be proud there is a young lady in here that was smart enough and courageous enough to offer help and healthier ways to do what you’re going to do anyway, be thankful there is a young lady behind this screen that knows it’s dangerous and was smart enough to treat the side effects it causes when the solution hasn’t been found yet. This is a subject unspoken in our life, girls get made fun of in school if caught, treated like a phyco in the family if found out or worse treated like a VICTIM by doctors and dentists alike who never give tips to stay safe and only push COUNSELING, all that stuff you think helps really doesn’t. What I needed was LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, a mom or dad who said… here honey I tell you what, lets get a gym membership and work out together or baby if your going to do this then lets figure a way to keep it to a minimum and not ruin your body while doing it and please don’t think you have to hide it from me because I want to be here if something goes wrong in that bathroom so your not afraid to ask for help, I will cook foods that come up easier and have less fat and calories, we will get great vitamins to insure your getting your nutrients essential to survival and anytime you think you want to stop or find another way to do it, you come to me and I’ll mortgage this damn house if I have to but we will find a way babe.
    Stop dogging your kids or your friends and recognise this is so BEYOND us both.
    If I knew how to or if I had that confidence or thick skin you have , would I of started in the first place?

    I’m 17 and 85lbs; I developed anorexia about when I was 15….it’s been an interesting process. I was introduced to mia and decided I didn’t want to do that because I hated throwing up but after I did it once when my friend have me an extremely high calories snack(600+; more than I eat in a day) and became addicted. And I do feel that mia is worse than ana and am trying to stop purging because psychologically I found that knowing I could purge made me feel like I could binge. I think bulimia is bad but I love my anorexia because it gave me confidence like nothing else has, and also introduced me to a healthier diet. I started at 100lbs and am now 85lbs and my goal is to maintain now though I wouldn’t mind being in the 70’s💕 and no, I don’t mind dying, it doesn’t faze me as I’m watching my younger sister die more and more everyday, and if anyone lectures me you’ll be knocked down. For some eating disorders are diseases, for me it’s a choice. My Instagram is startingsmall if anyone wants to be friends and my kik is sarenboo!

    Hey, being bulimic isn’t healthy. If you want to lose weight, go hit the gym. Puking is a coward’s choice of how to lose weight. You will have rotting teeth, little hair, and sore/weak fingernails. Don’t do it. My bestie, Kelsey, was a bulimic and she was scary thin. She was called ugly for being bony and she had to see a therapist because she was bullied. I told that she was a mia and she got really upset, but this year she thanked me for showing how to be healthy, which is NOT mia!

    Jessie.. I don’t purge to be thin.. Although thin isn’t a bad thing I have moments when I hated self hate life.. I mostly hate me.. And abusing my body brings me sanity, I find peace after the pain

    It’s not something most people understand and when I tell people about my problems they look at my like I’m a freak.. But it’s all I know, I’ll continue to try and make sense of it and one day maybe it will…

      The heart muscle changes, and its beat becomes irregular, potentially leading to cardiac arrest and death.

      Dehydration, kidney stones, and kidney failure may result in death.

      Liver damage (made worse if substance abuse is also a factor) may result in death.

      Menstruation often stops, even before extensive weight loss. This is called amenorrhea and can lead to infertility and bone loss or osteoporosis.

      Muscles waste away, resulting in weakness and loss of function.

      Slowed digestion caused by a lack of energy and diminished body function results in bowel irritation and constipation.

      Permanent loss of bone calcium leads to fractures and lifelong problems of osteoporosis.

      The person becomes intolerant to cold (especially in the hands and feet), and has sunken eyes, hair loss, bloating, and dry skin.

      The immune system weakens.

      Skin becomes dry and blotchy and has an unhealthy gray or yellow cast.

      Anemia and malnutrition may result.

      Fainting spells, sleep disruption, bad dreams, and mental fuzziness may result.

      In addition to these complications, the following common medical complications associated with bulimia nervosa result from repeated cycles of bingeing and purging:

      Loss of muscle mass from excessive vomiting may occur.

      Vomiting and abuse of laxatives and diuretics flush sodium chloride and potassium from the body, resulting in an electrolyte imbalance. Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) can result, which can ultimately lead to heart failure and death.

      Stomach acids in vomit can erode tooth enamel, resulting in damage such as cavities and discoloration. The acids can go into the salivary glands in the month, causing swollen glands in the neck, stones in the salivary ducts, and “chipmunk cheeks.”

      Self-induced vomiting can result in irritation and tears in the lining of the throat, esophagus, and stomach.

      Laxative abuse can create a dependence and result in an inability to have normal bowel movements.

      Abuse of medications to help induce vomiting, such as ipecac, can result in toxicity, heart failure, and death.

      Peptic ulcers may occur.

      The medical consequences of binge eating disorder are most often associated with obesity and include the following:

      High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and elevated triglyceride levels, which may cause hardening of the arteries and heart disease.

      Increased risk of bowel, breast, and reproductive cancers.

      Increased risk of diabetes.

      Increased risk of arthritic damage to the joints.

    I have been purging for about a week now. I have lost 6lbs since i started. Do you guys purge after every mealor every snack? I dont bring all my meal up. Sometimes i just purge about half of it (i think, i judge it by what order i eat and what order they come up). I t takes me about 20 minutes, by that point it looks a bit suss so i stop, also no matter how much i do it for, it doesn’t all come up. All though ive lost the 6lbs, when do you think i will start to notice? I look the same. Also, my belly is super bloated, but i do suffer from IBS. As you can tell im new to this. I started because i found out my bf was sleeping with a ‘friend’ of mine while we were on a break, she sent me many awful messages stating that i was fat and telling me to go eat some pies. I weigh 175lbs and im 5ft 4. When i feel shit this helps me keep control of something. No neg please guys, im happy doing this.

      Just go to your doctor. He/she will most likely refer you to a specialist, since the treatment is multi-faceted. And don’t be worried about your weight – actually many bulimics are not underweight! I was diagnosed with an ED a while ago and I wasn’t underweight either. Just do it now before it gets worse! Your future self is begging you to. I mean, most of us know we need help, but we don’t have the motivation. Use that motivation while it lasts. Good luck :)

    I have been bulimic since I was 15, finally at age 21 I realized it was no way to live. Coming from someone who has been there, it is not worth it. I am now anemic, have acid reflux, multiple cavities, I used to faint from not absorbing enough calories. Bulimia messes with your mind, not just your body. When I was younger I thought puking wasn’t a big deal… In fact I didn’t understand why everyone didn’t do it. Now I realize the mental and physical consequences. I have lost 35 pounds the healthy way and have not puked in four months, which is the longest I have ever gone. Some people can grow out of it when they are ready. I hope this helps someone :)

    I came to this site in April, in the hope of finding support and tips. I have lost 21 pounds. I am extremely proud of myself. I am strong. And its because of Ana. Ana is a wonderful friend. She is there for me all the time. Even when I don’t want her there. She is a complete inspiration. She picked me up when I was weak and selfish. Sinful and lonely. She said, “You don’t need food. You are strong. This food taints your beautiful soul.” So to herbal teas and everything fat free, I went on an incredible journey with Ana. She is a lovely girl. My best friend. At times, I let my old, fat, ugly self get in the way and fell of the wagon. That was when I met Mia. My other best friend. When I ate and felt so guilty. She guided me to the bathroom, lifted my hand and I got rid of the poison. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. I will continue my Ana journey for the rest of my life. I now have a boyfriend that means the world to me. Takes away all my insecurities. I never imagined my life the way it is now. I am becoming perfect. A saint. Like Ana and Mia, who have graced me with their presence. I want to lose 30 more pounds with Ana at my side. I have no regrets at all.

    Okay, so I came across this website today and have mixed thoughts. I have EDNOS – bulimic and anorexic tendencies. I have had this for 4 years now and have kept myself to myself. I have never looked for other people to encourage me to purge or starve because it is my battle. Its my illness. Part of me thinks its wrong that people would want encouragement because from others when deep down we have eating disorders to please ourselves.. nobody else.
    At the same time, it is nice to find some people to be open with and share stuff with because battling this on your own is hard work. Its an illness made up of lies. Anyway, I think I will keep peeking at the comments on here!

      When you eat, try eating foods that are easy to throw up. I prefer rice and pasta because they’re easy to bring back up. Stay away from breads. Right after you eat and right before you throw up, chug an entire 16oz glass of water. All that water is going to come right back up the minute you stick your finger down your throat and it will bring the food up with it. Hope that helps!

      Yousaid u drank water, how and when did u drink it? I find it a lot easier if you have small mouthfulls of food and have a small sip of water between every single mouthful. The best thing is probably to practice on softer or liquid foods until it gets easier. If u want it that much, just dont give up!

      stop trying! Trust me you do not want to start it, because it is almost impossible to stop. It is a slippery slope and a battle you will not win. It will not help you lose weight, and will just make your life miserable. You can not throw up because your body knows it should not be doing that. So listen to your body and stop. And don’t worry about your boyfriend, boys bodies are very different than girls bodies and he will not care if you are a few pounds skinnier, which bulimia will not make you btw.

    I know this sounds gross, but I am always paranoid about the noise so I leave my hand in front of my mouth so I just throw up on it. It covers alot of the sound because it doesn’t splash the water directly and the water in turn, doesn’t splash you in the face. You need to wash your hands anyway, and I don’t have any damage to my hands or fingernails. I’ve been doing this for 5 years.

      Doesn’t work. You’ll end up chewing a lot of food, and never being satisfied. No matter how hard you try not to swallow, some food will end up in your stomach. Please don’t start, it becomes very difficult to stop.

    Reading this made me cry. I had anorexia and I now have bullemia. Once you start you cannot stop. Its great at first … then it starts to affect every area of your life. It consumes you. I went from being confident, happy, successful, fit, healthy , fun, and social,…… to depressed, sick, anti social, food/looks obsessed, self conscious and moody . STOP NOW and get help.

    Consider drastic fitness and a very low calorie diet that’s healthy and combine it with a good exercise routine. Guys like women with glutes and definition more than stick people. You can be thin and strong and feminine (no one builds muscles by accident!). Fitness is a great substitute addiction. Many of the “liquidy” foods recommended for easy vomiting are fattening and useless for health. Take your pain to the gym and you can destroy all the calories you want. I’m a fat dude and dropping 5lbs/week comfortably. If I can do it any of you can. Find a target BMI that’s scientifically supported and hit then maintain it. Muscle tissue is denser than fat, so if you want to look thin which is the purpose of being thin, plan accordingly.

    Or not. I don’t have a dog in this fight.

      stop trying! Trust me you do not want to start it, because it is almost impossible to stop. It is a slippery slope and a battle you will not win. It will not help you lose weight, and will just make your life miserable. You can not throw up because your body knows it should not be doing that. So listen to your body and stop.

      You have to just keep trying. What always helped me was starting the muscle contractions in my stomach and then visualizing the food moving up through the esophagus and out the mouth. It’s kind of like when a cat or dog vomits, they make that weird noise first and then it all spews out their mouth. Also, keep your throat relaxed. Something that always helped me was repeating over and over, “Once you start, don’t stop” — it reminds me to get as many “waves” of vomit consecutively as possible. When you vomit, pause, vomit, pause, it makes it more difficult for everything to come out quickly because it slides back down your esophagus — once it’s on it’s way out, try to keep a constant flow of vomit. Drink A LOT of fluid — a lot. When I first started, I would take a bite, sip some water, take another bite, another sip of water — it def. helps. And whatever you do, at any cost, NEVER eat syrup — ever! It just doesn’t come up unless you mix it with lots and lots of butter. When I was in inpatient treatment, a girl showed me how to eat waffles with syrup and she covered them in about 1/2 a stick of butter — I did the same and could get it up, but it just wasn’t worth the anxiety that comes along from possibly not being able to get it up.

        The heart muscle changes, and its beat becomes irregular, potentially leading to cardiac arrest and death.

        Dehydration, kidney stones, and kidney failure may result in death.

        Liver damage (made worse if substance abuse is also a factor) may result in death.

        Menstruation often stops, even before extensive weight loss. This is called amenorrhea and can lead to infertility and bone loss or osteoporosis.

        Muscles waste away, resulting in weakness and loss of function.

        Slowed digestion caused by a lack of energy and diminished body function results in bowel irritation and constipation.

        Permanent loss of bone calcium leads to fractures and lifelong problems of osteoporosis.

        The person becomes intolerant to cold (especially in the hands and feet), and has sunken eyes, hair loss, bloating, and dry skin.

        The immune system weakens.

        Skin becomes dry and blotchy and has an unhealthy gray or yellow cast.

        Anemia and malnutrition may result.

        Fainting spells, sleep disruption, bad dreams, and mental fuzziness may result.

        In addition to these complications, the following common medical complications associated with bulimia nervosa result from repeated cycles of bingeing and purging:

        Loss of muscle mass from excessive vomiting may occur.

        Vomiting and abuse of laxatives and diuretics flush sodium chloride and potassium from the body, resulting in an electrolyte imbalance. Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) can result, which can ultimately lead to heart failure and death.

        Stomach acids in vomit can erode tooth enamel, resulting in damage such as cavities and discoloration. The acids can go into the salivary glands in the month, causing swollen glands in the neck, stones in the salivary ducts, and “chipmunk cheeks.”

        Self-induced vomiting can result in irritation and tears in the lining of the throat, esophagus, and stomach.

        Laxative abuse can create a dependence and result in an inability to have normal bowel movements.

        Abuse of medications to help induce vomiting, such as ipecac, can result in toxicity, heart failure, and death.

        Peptic ulcers may occur.

        The medical consequences of binge eating disorder are most often associated with obesity and include the following:

        High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and elevated triglyceride levels, which may cause hardening of the arteries and heart disease.

        Increased risk of bowel, breast, and reproductive cancers.

        Increased risk of diabetes.

        Increased risk of arthritic damage to the joints.

    Being you too do this yourself, I have to ask why the hell would you spur her on to be like yourself? You don’t need answer because in my years of experience with this, the girls like you are the most pathetic. To vain and self absorbed to care what you do to others, and yet at the same time to f###ing lazy to hop your selfish ass on a treadmill. Or display this awesome soul wrecking control you seem to think you yourself has harnessed. So you selfish self centered lazy manipulating piece, since you have all the answers and you obviously have to appear the victim to be able to maintain control of your world. Why would you on top of victimizing everyone at arms reach around you( since you are to lazy to walk to far out ta your way) also victimize someone who actually holds on to their last thread of what is still real. Unlike the empty husk that you are. I feel sorry for you. Truely I do.. Sorry for you because the only attention from people you get, is from people who only notice you because you are to lazy to put forth any effort to develop a personality worth noticing that instead made yourself so pathetic that people( who have more substance in their pinky), out of pity not want are what you are reduced to. Way to go, can we have a huge round of applause for the probably never victim turn victimizer. Just guessing but I’d say you’re a spoiled little girl who got everything you asked for but nothing you truthfully needed. Really rough being told no how did you make it through life. You are a bully., and a bully that can’t even back up the bill your lazy ass writes. I hope for hardship in your life. real hardship. I hope you become a victim. I hope you open your eyes and see that single thread she is holding on to. because her single thread is worth worlds and turns more heads than you could ever trap with your scheme. you might be thin but your nasty tainted soul eating existence is showing. she might be thick but I bet she lights up this world which is more than I can say for you. People gravitate towards her and are repulsed by people like you. Hell it’s people BULLIES like you that have her questioning her true beauty.

    This is horrendous…you don’t know what kind of path your choosing! Please for the sake of your future.. Your family…your health.. And your SANITY do not take this advice. And if you suffer from anorexia or bulimia get help ASAP! I’ve been bulimic for 11 years and nothing but pain and suffering has come out of it. Eating disorders are serious… Your making it seem like a game.. You will learn over time that your little “tricks” won’t matter… Because a few yrs into it you will see the effects… Tooth decay is inevitable I don’t care how long u wait to brush your teeth or how well you take care of them. Your throat will be in constant pain/scratchy. Your skin on your hand will be damaged. You will have terrible stomach pains…(mine were from ulcars)…My fingers started to swell up and after a while my right foot started swelling up and up to my leg eventually up my body (water retention) Right side heart failure… Totally worth being thin right?? NO. I would trade this sickness for anything. When I started years ago I was like you ” I’ll just do it for a year and I’ll reach my goal and stop” well it’s not that easy it’s like a black hole that sucks you in deeper and deeper.. You feel like you cant breath because your so consumed and obsessed with it. And all you want is to feel normal again and be happy. Oh also bulimia is like a gateway to an array of problems (excessive exercise.depression..suicidal thoughts…mood swings..the list goes on…) Now lets talk about what it does to your relationships… Well aside from all of my past ones that ended because guys would usually try to help me but I pushed them away because they were “interfering” with my bulimia…. I’ve been with my fiancé for 4 yrs and our biggest struggle is my eating disorder. We fight ALL the time because he wants me to get help but I’ve been to countless counselors dietitians doctors.. You name it I’ve tried.. I now try to recover on my own and trust me it’s not working either… He asks me every single day if I’ve thrown up… When I tell the truth it’s a fight all night usually ending in him telling me how dissapointed he is and that it is unattractive.. And when I lie he always finds out because I’m a terrible liar and we fight even worse…I have crazy mood swings from being hungry and deprived of much needed nutrients… He gets depressed because he feels helpless… And as far as the rest of my family.. They gave up on me years ago which is a terrible feeling to live with… There is so much more to my story and there’s so many women with stories like mine… Please take my advise and seek help.. This is a mental disorder don’t do it to yourself or your loved ones.. If any of you need someone to talk to ( I realize I’m in no position to offer advise being that I’m still struggling to even embark on recovery but I can be someone who’ll listen and fill you in on the true terrors to come) you can email me sara8815@yahoo.com …I normally don’t look at sites like this I tend to deny my problem and push it aside but my fiancé had me open up to him today and we were browsing around for eating disorder recovery advise and I stumbled across this and couldn’t help but to say something. For whoever wrote this you need help.
    And not to be confrontational but as for the person saying that this disorder means your selfish lazy and whatever other insensitive things you said… That was really cruel.. This is an illness and is painful as well as physically and mentally exhausting..eating disorders statistically hold the lowest recovery rate and highest mortality rate of mental illnesses..

    I am around 135 to 140 pounds (american pounds). I suck in my stomach constantly because I do have a bulge. I have tried to stop eating or stop eating so much, but I can’t stay with it. I have to eat, I get very angry when I am hungry. How can I make it a lot easier for me to not be so hungry? And my reflexes are not very loose. So I am not able to make myself throw up so easily. I have tries in the past. The only times I can get myself to throw up is when I eat so much that I am overly full and it feels like my whole stomach is so full that it feels like I have food just sitting all up in my tube and in the back of my throat right behind the swallow flap gland thing. Then I am able to throw up no problem because I am so overly full of food. Sometimes I have found that if I eat vinegar with something it helps tie up my hungry feeling. Like if I have plain tuna and put vinegar in it, it makes me feel full I guess or not hungry. But when I eat to much of it, it gets hard to swallow sometimes because I get the acid/ sour of the vinegar and the natural acid in the stomach don’t mix well. And sometimes I can throw up. But I have to eat like two cans of tuna with vinegar. Because then it is easier because when I even cough I start to get liquid coming up.

    One thing that I found helps empty me out really well. Is I will drink to many doses of this tea, it is called Smooth Move and it is a laxative tea and it makes you have to take a crap for a billion hours, and even can make it runny. I didn’t follow the directions and a few times I had over 5 cups of Smooth Move tea and a few hours later I spent the next 2 days in the bathroom a lot. It’s a good way to empty out the solid stuff fast.

      College is where I first started B/P’ing as well — it was a pain to try and figure out where to purge, but with a little creativity, you can do it. The good standby is the shower trick. You simply say you’re going to take a shower, let the water run, and purge while the water is running. Sometimes I would even purge in the shower. It’s a little gross because you do have to pick up all the food bits, but desperate times call for desperate measures! Another good idea is locate another bathroom somewhere nearby that’s private. When I looked around my dorms, I found a bathroom tucked away in the basement that I was able to get to quickly…that place was a lifesaver! I don’t know if you drive, but I eventually just started to binge and then get my in car and drive somewhere secluded to purge. That pretty much became my main way of purging my senior year. Lastly, I’ve never done it, but a lot of people do it, purge in a container in your room. Some people actually keep the bins, I would definitely toss them afterward, though! It depends on how desperate you are to get the food out. If it really came down to pure desperation, I’d hop in the shower and get it all out…that’s my usual standby method.

    I would like to say a big “F@#K You” to all the bullies on this page. You obviously have NO idea what these people are going through. I’d love the opportunity to tear you apart for all your life’s choices and see how you handle it. Judgmental pricks.

    That being said, I don’t think this is a healthy lifestyle. I’d be hypocritical to say people shouldn’t do it, b/c I DO purge from time to time. However, I also know that what I’m doing is unhealthy. I compare myself to the “ideal” image that’s represented in magazines, TV, movies, etc, and I know that those are unrealistic image goals.That doesn’t mean I don’t want them. I’d still take drastic steps to achieve them. In all honesty, if someone were to say “If you let me take 5-10 years from your life, I will make you physically perfect,” I would do it. The difference is, I know that it’s wrong. I know that it’s a warped way to see my life and my self image. Any relief or satisfaction I feel from purging is always short lived.

    I would never condemn someone for choosing this lifestyle, but I would also NEVER encourage it. I can only hope that if you are doing this, please stop or seek help if your health starts to deteriorate. I hope this for myself as well. Much love to you all.

    I understand that people who do not suffer with eating disorders do not understand. People telling us all to ‘just be healthy, stop doing these things’ are not going to help. trust me.. I know, unfortunately. I also see another side to things though. Those struggling with the ILLNESS may just want support and others who know what they are going through. With bulimia, I feel as though I can never stop doing what I do because it is a part of me. Without it, I don’t know who I am and am afraid of finding out. Is it really strange that I want to switch to ana? i just think I would love to have that amount of self control! But those on here that WANT to be bulimic, I really don’t understand. And I don’t think any of you that WANT this actually fully understand how much it takes over your life either…. Whether you are for or against this site, it may actually be helping those on here. Either way you view this site, anyone can talk to m if they want, just put ur email on here and i will email u :)

      Yep, I have no I idea how this person who started this isn’t charged with manslaughter. I’m so disgusted that I’m almost in tears. My girlfriend has had bulimia for 13 years and she finally came out to me and now we are dealing with the health conditions caused by the extreme abuse it takes on the body. I would love to meet the person who started this site?? Please, please I am begging you to make yourself known?!?! Please, give me your name, give me an address, country, state, city, anything and I will be coming to find you, you sick sick individual. You are voluntarily helping kill young innocent kids who know no better. You deserve to suffer all the major health conditions that come of this disease, and you deserve to die alone you pathetic fuck!

      The heart muscle changes, and its beat becomes irregular, potentially leading to cardiac arrest and death.

      Dehydration, kidney stones, and kidney failure may result in death.

      Liver damage (made worse if substance abuse is also a factor) may result in death.

      Menstruation often stops, even before extensive weight loss. This is called amenorrhea and can lead to infertility and bone loss or osteoporosis.

      Muscles waste away, resulting in weakness and loss of function.

      Slowed digestion caused by a lack of energy and diminished body function results in bowel irritation and constipation.

      Permanent loss of bone calcium leads to fractures and lifelong problems of osteoporosis.

      The person becomes intolerant to cold (especially in the hands and feet), and has sunken eyes, hair loss, bloating, and dry skin.

      The immune system weakens.

      Skin becomes dry and blotchy and has an unhealthy gray or yellow cast.

      Anemia and malnutrition may result.

      Fainting spells, sleep disruption, bad dreams, and mental fuzziness may result.

      In addition to these complications, the following common medical complications associated with bulimia nervosa result from repeated cycles of bingeing and purging:

      Loss of muscle mass from excessive vomiting may occur.

      Vomiting and abuse of laxatives and diuretics flush sodium chloride and potassium from the body, resulting in an electrolyte imbalance. Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) can result, which can ultimately lead to heart failure and death.

      Stomach acids in vomit can erode tooth enamel, resulting in damage such as cavities and discoloration. The acids can go into the salivary glands in the month, causing swollen glands in the neck, stones in the salivary ducts, and “chipmunk cheeks.”

      Self-induced vomiting can result in irritation and tears in the lining of the throat, esophagus, and stomach.

      Laxative abuse can create a dependence and result in an inability to have normal bowel movements.

      Abuse of medications to help induce vomiting, such as ipecac, can result in toxicity, heart failure, and death.

      Peptic ulcers may occur.

      The medical consequences of binge eating disorder are most often associated with obesity and include the following:

      High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and elevated triglyceride levels, which may cause hardening of the arteries and heart disease.

      Increased risk of bowel, breast, and reproductive cancers.

      Increased risk of diabetes.

      Increased risk of arthritic damage to the joints.

        Oh is that right Skylar? I’m an RN on a pediatric unit, and my girlfriend is in recovery from a 13 yr battle with bulimia. You don’t think I have an idea how you feel? Try seeing teenage girls severely dehydrated with no energy hooked up to an IV. Or, having to witness your GF have seizures due to low BP and low blood sugar. Or, try being with your GF when she finds out her kidneys are working at the same rate as a 70 year old. Or, possibly that we are not able to have children bc she had amenorrhea over and over again. SHOW SOME EMPATHY! WHY ARE YOU ASSISTING WITH HELPING KIDS GET FURTHER INTO A DISEASE WITH A HIGH MORTALITY RATE???? So educate yourself on what comes of this disease and stop encouraging kids to strive for adverse health outcomes, because it is mentally ill of you and you need to reflect on that!

      Dear Ben,

      I am recovering from eating disorders (both Anorexia and Bulimia nervosa) which I developed in my late teens as a result of a sexual assault. I am now 28 years old and have only sort treatment in the last year or so.

      As a registerd nurse you would understand that this disorder is a form of mental illness. I understand your frustration at this post and some of these comments as you have seen first hand how destructive this mental disorder can be if left untreated, however I would implore you to seek compassion and not anger against these individuals.

      I wish your girlfriend all the best with her recovery.

      And to all the other pro mia/ana users on this site and original blogger, I wish you all the best and if you do ever enter recovery and need someone to chat to please feel free to message me.

      Saying that only makes people angry or feel guilty. That feeling will make them turn to food, then we will want want to purge again. You have no idea how our brains wotk or about our thought processes. Making horrible comments is more likely to make us worse because people judge us.

        you may have been around a lot of people that have or have had ana or mia, but the way you are talking to us all and the way you word things to try and ‘help’ shows that you OBVIOUSLY have NO IDEA!! Maybe some of us have tried to get help. its not something you can just stop! You try waking up some days feeling suicidal either because of the way you look or because you feel so useless not having the strength to stop this. you dont realise how hard it is sometimes. some people on here may disagree but from my experience, all we want is someone to talk to who REALLY UNDERSTANDS! I do however agree that some on here are beginning the cycle of mia and do not realise how much it hurts and how addictive it is. You should try being us. Wanting to stop but being too scared. mia has been a part of some of our lives for so long that we dont know who we are without it and are far too scared to stop it incase we find ourselves and dont like it. Its hard to put into words but no matter how many people u have been around, u will NEVER understand us unless you go through it personally!

Discouraging them is most definitely not going to help. If you do not like this stuff…… why’re you on here creepin’? NO MATTER if you like it or NOT there are going to be pages like this on EVERY topic. Porn webs, Self harm (cutting, overdosing, ect.), Gay webs, i mean, you name it…. you can find a web for it. Let them be. They have to learn themselves. YOU CANNOT HELP ANYONE WHO DOESNT WANT TO BE HELPED!!!! and these girls clearly do not…. if they do, they can seek help themselves. Who are WE to judge?!

    Hi miaguzman. No, I am not fat, I’m of healthy weight because I take care of myself naturally. Unfortunately, you’re the one with the disease and obsess about being over weight 24 hrs a day. And also, I’m not angry because my girlfriend is sick, I’m angry because of sick fucks like yourself and the creator of this blog for assisting in this disease instead of preventing it. You all should be supporting each other through recovery instead of giving advice on purging correctly. So, you can go fuck yourself, purge up to 10 times a day, and then die with your face in the toilet bowl:)

Say, let’s just say I’m the one with the mental disease that basically makes her self destruct, and then let us take you, the seemingly “normal” or “healthy” one at that and that normal one(you) is telling the mentally unhealthy one(me) to kick the bucket. Wow. You sure got me. I am the fucked up one. Yep, just because you told me that, I am going to change my entire perspective on life. I thank you kind sir. Ha. Fuck that. You aren’t the first, the last, or even the worst, however, you are the most pathetic. Because of your attempts to help people and then getting frustrated RATHER easily when (your words not mine) the ones with the “mental disease” don’t listen to you. Then look at the way you’re writing me, looks like ickle wittle Benny is trying to be “intimidating”.

By doing this your brain will have the nutrients it needs to think rationally about why this pro eating disorder website is wrong, and that ‘pathetic’ people like yourself are assisting adolescence in believing that being bulimic is ok.

You, on the other hand, are actually directly telling people to kill themselves. Last time I checked, I haven’t handed out any tips.

    hi, im puerto rican so by default I have big thighs, legs and butt. I started a healthy weight loss journey back in february and began to see results but i’ve never been an exercise person so its taken forever. some people say i look skinner, but i feel as shitty and fat as always. two months ago I drunkenly sprained both of my ankles and my right foot when I took a tumble wearing 5inch heels and so obviously I had to stop exercising (which I had began to improve my routine) and im still not recovered. doctors say it will take a couple of months… well i can’t deal with that… i be can eating like 1300 calories a day, and most of them came from fruits and vegetables because I decided to go vegetarian/vegan-ish. well its been two months from that and I feel the same so i’ve started vomiting. i recognize that this is bad, but i really want to loose weight and especially don’t want to gain weight while im sedentary and recovering my ankles. i want to know how can i loose weight as fast as possible, i’ve become so depressed and can’t stand looking at myself in the mirror even though I do so like 100 times a day. my boyfriend says im beautiful and that i’ve never look better, but i feel like sometimes that makes me feel worse because he pities me. tips? advice? HELP!

      I hope you are recovering well from your ankle-sprain. There is no fast way to lose weight, you can only lose weight by eating a balanced diet and not too many calories. This means that you are doing all the right things to lose weight!. More proof that you are doing well is that people notice the difference and that your boyfriend tells you that you are beautiful. More than that: he is with you because you are a beautiful person inside, not because of the outside.

      When you start compensating (purging, doing too much sports etc) for the food that you ate, you are changing your bodies balance and your body will try to compensate for the lack of energy that it got. That is the time that you can feel cravings and the chance of eating ‘empty calories’ is larger. Also very important is to take in your food on regular times, for example every 3 hours. This way you don’t get hungry so much and you don’t have to compensate for anything.

    if I had to chose between being bulimic and anorexic, I would chose to be anorexic. I was anorexic for 3 years before I became bulimic and trust me you lose a ton of weight when you are anorexic and it isn’t that hard to get used to starving yourself. purging hurts after a long time. I’ve gone back to just starving and occasionally purging when I feel really full

    Any advice on how to get over the fear? I’m so fat and I’m a swimmer. I see it every day. I see how skinny the other girls are and I just want to look like them ya know? I want to be able to sit on my friends laps without the fear I’m squishing them, I want to get intimate with a guy and not think about these ugly rolls. I NEED to lose these pounds, asap.

    Hi, when reading these comments it makes me very sad to realize that so many people struggle with themselves and food. I also struggled a lot for years, but finally made myself go to therapy to break the thought-cycle that caused me to feel out of control over my body and what I was eating. This helped me to
    1. understand that I am beautiful already and that I am perfect the way I am (with all my flaws).
    2. understand that being thin doesn’t make me happy, it is the things that I do in life that can make me happy. Worrying non-stop about how I look or what I want to / shouldn’t eat next didn’t make me happy, only sad.
    3. see that it is possible (for me and all the girls in my group) to overcome this horrible disease and enjoy life and relationships again.
    4. count my blessings every day.
    I wish all of you strength and courage to love yourself and take control over your life again, step by step. And if you feel that you cannot get out of the disease yourself, ask for help.

    Purging does NOT make you skinny. it just prevents your body from absorbing the nutrients it needs. By throwing up, you only get rid of 50% of the calories. if you want to lose weight you have to eat. If you don’t eat your body goes into starvation mode and holds onto the fat.
    Whoever started this has to get help and stop sharing this stuff.

Does anyone knowthe owners details? I would spend the money to travel and meet her?! I will gladly inflict the level of pain on her that she has caused the thousands of naive girls with this disease, partners of bulimics, or better yet the families that have lost loved ones from this disease.

I seriously have no empathy for anyone one of you who give advice.. Think about what you’re a doing, not only to the ones with this problem, but their loved ones too! Here’s a purging tip; it’s called flushing. I suggest that any of you selfish fucks who don’t care about anyone except yourselves take it up. This technique will kill you faster.

And yes, my significant other is in recovery from many yrs of this sickness. So after all that it has done to her, myself, and the people who love her, i have no remorse when verbally assaulting shit like you. Furthermore, my loved one is disgusted that girls like you are helping others get as sick and clost to death as she was. I’m attending a support group for partners of bulimics and if you could only see how much you hurt the ones around you. Now, I believe it’s time for you to get off this assisting site and get your head back in the toilet where it belongs! Happy low potassium levels followed by arrythmias:)

    Haha sorry Giana but I’ve learned more than you can imagine from her struggles, and through my own education in medicine. And, she is on the other side of the world atm so I’m making my own memories by tormenting shit like you. Your brain is obviously starved of sugar and youre thinking irrationally, which is why you think it’s ok to assist others in the progression of their illness. Reflect on what you’re doing you pathetic piece of trash. You’re obviously past the point of helping others and you get comfort in dragging others down with you, because it gives you a sense of unity and companionship. As I said, pathetic.

    This is horrible. I have never had less faith in humanity than I do now knowing that sites like this exist. Do you all not realize these are diseases? That you are sick? Could you imagine people WANTING to live with malaria or aids? TRYING to become or stay infected? It is the same thing. Please. I am begging you. After you read this please contact someone for help. PLEASE. What you are doing WILL eventually kill you. Please realize that this is not an okay way of life. You are hurting yourself, killing yourself and sites like this should not be around to encourage you to ruin your life. Please I lost a sister to anorexia and the whole time she argued with us that this was how she wanted to live until it was to late. At the end all she wanted to do was play soccer like she used to but her body became so brittle and useless. These diseases do not make you look pretty they make you look disgusting. If you see an overweight person in a store, it is just another overweight person. However if you see someone wasting away right in front of you it is terrifying. Please find help. Please.

I recommend you google that technique before you do more harm to yourself than you’re already doing. Don’t go on this site, it’s disgusting. Learn to love yourself and get help before it’s too late.

Stop doing this to yourself before it gets a hold of you and fucks your life and your loved ones lives. Open up to the one’s you trust and get support to begin recovery from this horrible illness.

    you can’t blame someone because he or she has this disease. It’s like blaming someone for cancer. anyway, this is a serious illness and is destructive. becomes a part of you and your whole life. as you already know

    Tips are very helpful, but want too get things clear! You can eat chips, you can eat apples, you can eat meat, you can eat spicy things, you can eat anything it will still come up as long as you drink water or something too help it come up. I know this because I have puked up everything, and anything you could possibly think of. I have been bulimic for over 4 years and I’m a freshman I’n highschool,all you have too do is eat I’n moderation while drinking between each bite, chewing till you can’t chew no more and you should be fine. I have puked up popcorn, chips, chicken, Mexican food, bannana bread etc. Nothing is impossible you just have too remember BIG ISNT BEAUTIFUL!! Look up songs for inspiration, remind yourself that when all the people that did call you fat will regret it once they see you dropping the pounds, and yes I do agree it is way easier too stick with anorexia, im recovering but recently relapsed just remember the first few days are hard but anyone and everyone can do it, it takes time don’t rush into it and I do want too clarify a few things looking on these sites really fuck with your head and I’m not kidding,having an ED is a serious mental condition it takes you threw HELL and your family three HELL. I know from experience me telling you not too be bulimic or anorexic makes me a hepacrite but I just want everyone too be safe and know what there getting themselves into, you lose the ability too have children how would it make you feel too have too live with knowing you killed your kids because you were dying too be thin, it’s sad you all are better then what your putting forward

    Being bulimic or anorexic hurts you deeply, your body will never be the same after all it’s been threw. I know I’m being hepicriticul but how would it feel too have kids and they did this? It would hurt too live with that, how would it feel too live with the fact you can’t have kids due too early menopause, or living with the fact you kid killed your kids from miscarriage from being unhealthy. Just think twice before you do somthing that’s really going too fuck your future up

    Eggwhites r great, no fat and like 30 cal per egg, I like it with tobasco, tobasco kills the hunger and makes u drink water and u will feel full, it will give u energy too, celery sticks are great, stay away from carrots, high in calories, low fat or nonfat refried beans r good, makes u feel full and chicken broth is great for energy, no fat and hardly any calories, green tea is good, has caffine to kill the hunger and its full of antioxidants which is good for u I guess, that is what they say anyway, lol, try not to eat after 4 pm, if I can think of anything else I will let u know

    I need advice! I don’t need anyone emailing my anything about the dangers of Ana/ bulimia. That’s obviously not why I’m here so please do not waste mine or your time messaging me if it’s not related to helping me with what I need. I have been Ana going in a couple of years now. I’m use to this method and more comfortable with it than purging but from time to time I will purge but recently I have been binge/ purging going on about 6 months now and I was in a horrible car accident that case serve anxiety issues and they prescribed me an anti anxiety medication that makes me want to binge every chance I get. My issue now is it’s getting harder and more difficult to purge and I need advice on if this is normal over time for bullimics to have a harder time purging. Please email me if you have had the same issues or have any advice that may help me. Sherylsharing@yahoo.com

    I have many questions even after dealing and doing this for so long. This is not only driving me crazy but it’s making my anxiety even worse I feel dirty if I cannot purge after I eat anything it’s the worst feeling like not being able to ‘clean’ my body out.

    Please message via email f you can help. Thank you!

      I write this, becuase I want to stop someone to kill them self like this.

      I want you and other to see this is wrong. It`s in our nature that we EAT. We need food.

      I wonder why is it so importan to be skinny? nobody is perfect.
      “anorixia and bulimia people”is in there own booble,they say that food is an enemy, that if u don`t lose weight u are ugly, fat and nobody will loves u
      THAT`S A LIE! LISTEN!
      NORMAL PEOPLE THINK U ARE PRETTY.
      People who is too skinny, is ugly! people who is there naturally boddy, its much prettier and sexy.

      Food is your friend, it helps u to have a nice life. If u don`t eat u wil die. What`s the meanig of getting thiner, when u can`t live the life as “skinny”,becuse your dead! And your way to the perfect body is a hell with pain and mental sick.When u have anorexia or bulimia your head says that ur too fat, when u are in reality VERY SKINNY. In your head u never been enough skinny, u always going to say that u will be thiner, at the end u wil DIE

      FOOD is your friend, ANOREXIA is your enimy.

    ANOREXIA IS
    migrains, stomach pain, muscle weaknes, shaky hands, blurry vision, unsteady focus, sobbing uncontollably, self-hatred, passing out, dizziness, countless stares, screaming families, terrified friends, disorted mirrors, angry scales, disordered realities, failing organs, easy bruising, social withdrawal, starvation, coma, DEATH

    BUT HEY, YOU GET SKINNY RIGHT?
    Wrong, You wil NEVER be skinny. You wil look at yourself in the mirror every moment you get the chance , and you will only see the FAT hanging over your jeans, the FAT clinging to our stomach, the FAT on your legs, your arms. EVERYWHERE You will never be skinny, at least in your mind.

    Also… many of those suffering from anorexia are either a healthy weight, or overweight”Anorexic” is not, never has been, and never should be a synonym for “skinny”

      lets try again –

      ANOREXIA IS
      a quick way to lose lots of weight, a great way to cleanse your body

      BUT HEY, YOU GET SKINNY RIGHT?
      YES. If we didn’t get skinny by being anorexic, people in the world would not be bitching about it. We die from it because we get too skinny and have no fat and nutrients for our body to survive on, so unlike what you said, YES, anorexics get skinny!

      Also… many of those suffering from anorexia are either a healthy weight, or overweight” If this is true, why do we represent ‘anorexic’ people with pictures of their bones protruding through their skin and clearly malnourished underweight girls? Sure sounds like anorexic could be used as a synonm for skinny! Anorexic” is not, never has been, and never should be a synonym for “skinny”

    As an educated psychology graduate and a human, I have always been 100% against these pro-mia/ana sites……………………. BUT as an obese chick, now down 60 pounds and counting, I have to say THANK YOU. These tips have made my purging 1000% more effective. I mostly practiced ana on and off, but I love a good binge..and now it’s a more effective binge..

    Another thing I have found that helps, when practicing ana (but still having food cravings) are these – http://www.ebay.com/itm/231137904974?var=&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 If I feel like I need some chocolate, I just vape (suck) on one of these..a chocolate flavored one.. it is just like taking a chocolate hit and there are so many flavors – watermelon, banana, apple, coconut, strawberry, coke, everything imaginable – check them out.. I highly recommended.. This seller always gives me a discount when I ask him because I buy in bulk ( 5 or more).. Other people sell them too though.. anyway, it’s worked for me! :)

    I weighed 294 pounds but from June – August, I lost 43 of them (I was in a competition and won)…. then I found 20 of them when the competition stopped…. It started again, and in the next 3 months, I lost 40 again.. I found 10 of them during the month off but am back on track again and lost them – yay :)

    When I fasted 13 days, I lost 22 of them.. with the vaping pens, I can go a long time without having to do the binge and purge..but I give in eventually…. The competition and my desire to WIN is what tends to get me back on track..I was on a team the second time the comp ran, and my team WON :)…. I am not sure of the best way to get back on the wagon.. when I see my hard work disappearing, I try to remember what I am going after.. why I was losing in the first place..

    And I have secret pictures of me looking hideous in my swimsuit or I go look at my mostly naked self in the mirror and remember that I don’t want those rolls..

    try the pens – they’re awesome and be good to yourself.. Find a way to stay busy – it totally helps when you’re fasting..and drink tons of water or diet soda

    When I was in my younger teenage years, I had a lot of issues mentally. I used my access to food as a way to control at least one aspect of my life. It didn’t end well for me. I knew about the consequences, but I did it anyway. I didn’t think i’d care if I died, but when a Doctor actually faces you and tells you that’s what’s going to happen, things can be put into perspective. Quite rapidly. It’s easy to say that you don’t care, that you would rather die skinny and beautiful, but it’s not true. Not when it comes down to it. Not when you’re sitting there, being forced to make a life or death decision that you’re too young to deal with, and having to take everyone else in your life into consideration. When you have to think about your parents, siblings, friends, any important person and question how they’re going to get by without you, it’s easy to say they’ll be fine. But they won’t. You can ask them if you don’t believe me. Shit may be tough at the moment, but it always gets better. If I hadn’t changed, I Wouldn’t be in a happy relationship, spending every day feeling loved and beautiful. But I did, and that’s my reward.

    You can get through anything, with the right help and a desire to get better.

    You can write this off as unimportant if you want, but just remember this: It’s not just your life you’re gambling with. Your death will impact so many others, in ways you couldn’t imagine. Is it really worth hurting that many people so that you can fit the media’s version of beautiful?

    Someone out there finds you beautiful as you are. Someone out there will love you like you’ve never been loved before, no matter what you weigh.

    Look after yourselves, I beg you.

    Yes, our deaths will impact others, but people die every day..whether it’s self inflicted or an accident.. it’s called the circle of life

    It’s not just about what the ‘media’ sees as beautiful…. it’s about how we see ourselves. I wish everyone would stop, but we won’t….until we got proper psychological help/counseling, and instead of being good to ourselves, we are choosing to destroy our lives and hurt those who care about us..

    Maybe people do die every day, and that can’t be helped. What can be helped, however is those who don’t have to. Those who can receive the help they need.

    I understand. I do, and perhaps I didn’t word it correctly, I apologise. But you can learn to see yourself as beautiful the way you are. It’s hard, it’s painful and it’s frustrating, but it’s worth it.

    I just want you to get help. At least one. It’s not difficult to find a professional, and your life is absolutely worth it. I’m no professional, but even i’m willing to listen, willing to be a support network, willing to try, so that you can live your life happily and healthily.

    It may be selfish, but I don’t want to lose another friend. I don’t want to see conditions like this becoming okay, I don’t want to see anymore crying families. I don’t want people to have to live through an illness that makes them feel like a slave to their bodies.

    But most of all, I want people like you to experience happiness. True happiness, not that false sense of it you get when you find out that you’ve lost weight, or when someone tells you how skinny you are. True Happiness. The feeling you get when you know someone loves you for who you are, when you know you’re beautiful, not because someone has told you, but because you feel it.

    I want to see you all come out on the other side of this. I want to see you survive.

    I am happy for you. Thank you for seeing a Dr. Your point about looking and feeling better and toned is true too! It is a better way to go then purging, not eating, and destroying yourself. What caused you to become bulimic? What stopped you? If you do not mind answering these questions I would very much appreciate it!

      Not always, no.

      IN all honesty though, do you want help? Do you actually want to get better? Are you happy like this? If you are, i’ll leave it at that. I may not agree with it, but i’ll never try to take someone’s happiness away. If you can actually say that what you’re doing at the moment makes you really, honestly, truly happy, i’ll disappear entirely from this thread.

      But for now I really just want to help. I just want to make it clear that i’ll make myself available to talk to if it’s requested. By anyone.

      Because that’s how I got better. It’s how I stay better. I try to help people.

    I don’t admit that I have any kind of problem (i’m different)..so nothing to get better about. I’m not happy, but I have severe mental illnesses and a high IQ and those 2 make a messed up combination. Honestly though, even a high majority of people who do not participate in ana/mia activities would not say they are happy. You do not need to disappear at my expense. I wish everyone on here that needs it would seek help before they destroy their lives even more………………. but what’s that saying? ….”if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”

But this blog makes you no better than a violent gun-toting teen who enters school buildings to shoot a bunch of children. Such people should either get help or take themselves out. Why would you want to spread your illness? Have you ever considered that if one of the people taking your advice DIES, you are partially responsible? Get a grip.

    Wasting your time? You mean the vast amounts of time and energy you need to spend monitoring what you eat endlessly, worrying and anxious, hiding and secretive, throwing up to feel whole and “safe” again, hating yourself? No. I won’t shut the fuck up. I have as much a right to speak as you do. You’ve got plenty of time and you can ignore this post if you like, just as I can ignore yours.

    I spent 10 years with eating disorders in secret. No one in the world knew about it. I am completely and utterly DONE with them, and with all forms of self-harm, and really happy about it. This can pass if you let it. But if you spend time online finding compatriots, finding sick support for your illness, you may damage yourself permanently or die. It’s not worth it. You can stop and you can be happier. You don’t even need outside help to stop. All you need is determination and a belief in yourself, as corny as it sounds. And don’t tell me you can’t. Ana Mia people are some of the most determined, steely, disciplined people on the planet. There is nothing they can’t do.

    For people who are fat and think that the weight they’re losing by throwing up and starving themselves is going to stay off: I’m sorry to disappoint you. Many scientific studies show you’re fighting a losing battle, because of the way the body stores desperately when scarcity strikes. The weight you think you have under control will come back. If you want to be thin and look attractive to yourself and others, why not put your energy into exercise and eating healthily? Once you do this, your metabolism will take care of the rest. I am 5’6″ and weigh 118. I eat whatever I feel like and don’t put a lot of energy into it.

    Listen to the lunatics trapped in their endless narcissism and angst on here (yeah, it’s tempting, isn’t it?) and you’re condemned to be a slave to the cycles of self-hatred and despair with only tiny moments of relief. You’ll never be satisfied. Your feeling of satisfaction and control over the situation is an illusion and is fleeting (as anyone who throws up day-in-day-out knows).

    I realize this list was to offer tips on how to stay sick. I’m just offering the opinion that maybe you can find a way not to. The first step is to stay off these sites. I wish you all the better things you deserve.

They go right back to looking the way they did before. What’s the point of that? There’s a reason that people purge or starve. By coming to this website designed to provide support and tips for those who are pro ana or mia and harassing us with sob stories and angry, destructive criticism, you are abusing this site and every site like it as well as all anorexics and bullimics.

    HAHA I found your comment funny. “why not put your energy into exercise”

    Hello. A lot of bulimics over exercise already, so great suggestion. And most anorexics are so weak that they are going to pass out or hurt themselves if they exercise.

    This will sound weird coming from someone with an eating disorder, but 5’6 118 is a little on the small side.. you sure you’re not still dealing with an ed? Did you somehow miss that this a mental disorder? Strongwilled or not, even when the anorexic reaches their technically ideal weight, their head is NEVER going to let them feel like they are thin and attractive. It is not something they can just get over without help.

    And as people have stated, you have the right to speak, but just like you can’t yell ‘fire’ in a crowded theater, there is a place and a time. This is NOT the place for you to voice your opinion.. go ahead though, be a dick. ;)

    You’re going to worry about damaging the enamel on your teeth–which can be fixed—when you’re doing is permanently damaging you internally? Way to be unintentionally ironic! Some of you on here are smart. You must see that this site is littered with idiots. Why would you listen to them?

Call me an idiot, but I’ve tried diet and exercise and it only makes me gain weight! Ana and Mia tell me the only ways that I can get the body I want. What do you have to say to that? Way to crush all of our dreams.

    So this is what you want to do? Lead the losers to their doom? Your IQ isn’t as high as you think it is. One minute you’re relying on the statement that this is a mental disorder and these people need professional help. The next minute you’re offering advice to try to perpetuate mental disorders, which is wrong. When caught being wrong you quickly distance yourself from the advice — “This wasn’t my advice—someone else wrote it.”

    You can’t have it both ways, my dear. Take some responsibility. Helping people stay trapped in a brutally addictive and destructive mental illness means you’re a bad person. There’s no getting around it. So in addition to being mentally ill, you’re also evil. You have a choice. You don’t have to “help” people stay sick. You could just be quiet and go about the business of wrecking your own pathetic life. This goes for the person who started this blog too.

    A professional in the psychology industry? Impossible. As a professional in the psychology industry you’d have made a commitment to “do no harm.”

    “Lead the losers to their doom” is a play on words. Perhaps you’re familiar with the show “The Biggest Loser.”

    Don’t play the self-esteem building card with me. That just seals the fact that you’re manipulative. Your apology is an attempt not to lose your audience. Your position is indefensible and you know it. You are on the wrong side. I believe you’ll regret that one day.

    I’ll say one more thing and then sign off for good. I know a lot of you don’t want to stop this right now. It’s such a delectable trap to fall into because it offers the illusion of control. But to all those who come here to perpetuate their illness: When you don’t want to suffer anymore, please believe you really do have it in you to get better. As you have witnessed above, there are twisted individuals who, in trying to justify their own illness, will help spread that illness into the world. They might even call themselves professionals. But there is good, solid help out there. And there are healthy people out there you can trust to support you, you’ll find them if you stop keeping secrets. It will get better. Get help and avoid places like this if you can.

    I have been purging my whole life the Greeks used to have all day and night feasts drinking and eating continually. The only way this was possible is the walks in the garden to expel then back to reload. Food is good if you eat to much throw up and eat more throwing up when your full is an addictive solution moderation. You need to keep something down at least 2 healthy regulated meals a week. You never purge 100% nutrients are absorbed first chunks or food is the weight you could gain. Take vitamins drink lemon or lime water soup broth. It is easy to get skinny doing this but to live forever at your goal weight takes dedication moderation and working out. Don’t use this if your lazy you will look stupid and flabby you have to excersize.

    As someone who’s been struggling with bulimia for 3 years, I can honestly say it is not a good way to lose weight. To be honest, I wouldn’t say it has ruined my life or anything but it has made a lot of things complicated. I already suffered with depression prior to the development of my eating disorder. IN fact, my depression is what lured me into ‘mia’ habits. I went from being 183 to being 143. I still have more to lose but I am going to try restricting and try to cut down on purging. But my point is, bulimia is very tricky. There are days when I start binging and a family member comes home, so I can’t just purge immediately after and unfortunately, situations like these have caused me to gain weight and fluctuate. And then there are days when no one is around and I can binge and purge to my heart’s content. Bulimia is fun. Bulimia is gross. Bulimia steals so much life out of you. Bulimia causes you to push your real friends (if you have any) away, making ‘mia’ your only friend.
    The most horrifying moment of my life was getting caught purging my thanksgiving dinner at a party. I’ve had a lot of bad moments because of mia. My family is upset at me for the most part, and they don’t comprehend the mental aspect of it. They think it is as easy as just “not throwing up.” See, when you fuck your body over this much, you can’t even digest food that well so leaving food down is uncomfortable leaving you no other option but to purge. My body is so fucked up that I don’t even have to use hands to vomit. I just bend over and.. ‘ta da’…
    I’ve gotten so bad that some days I will skip class to binge and purge.
    I am sorry this is so long, but all I want to say is that while Bulimia might seem like magic and help you lose some weight at first, it’s really not worth it. Anorexia or ‘ana’ is not much better, but I would say you can get away with restricting more than you can with bulimia. Honestly it’s an unnecessary yet addicting pain the ass… If you can, try to restrict as much as possible and only binge and purge occasionally. It will actually help you lose more… (from my experience anyway)

    I came across this website while researching for my project on bulimia and this is so sad that someone would actually make such a website that promotes bulimia. Bulimia doesn’t even help in loosing weight. I was bulimic for three years and nothing happened, my stomach lining tore and a lot more complications occurred. Its a waste of time and affects you very badly physically and mentally. You can instead have a healthy diet and exercise good.

    Tanishqa, you are obviously clueless. Bulimia DOES HELP in losing weight – many of us are living proof!

    And as far as “you can instead have a healthy diet and exercise good” – are you serious? Have you ever spent time in the mind of a bulimic? Most bulimics overexercise AND if they could CONTROL their ‘healthy diet,’ they would not need to resort to bulimia. Sorry, but you are away off base…. hope you actually put some accurate information in your research paper!

Any tips that will be useful to make my plan better? I only want to lose enough to be healthy. Right now I weigh 184 pounds I don’t know how I got here and I know I’m fat, but I want to Weight at least 100 or less

      Since you weigh 184 pounds, your body is used to having a lot of calories and fat. By decreasing your calorie intake and you puking up all the nutrients your body is falling into starvation mode. This means that every food you do eat, your body immediately converts it into fat, making you gain weight. Basically, by the time you start losing weight it won’t matter because you will be to weak and sick to enjoy it.
      You should actually eat 1200 calories a day, which might seem like a lot. BUT you eat healthy fruit and vegetables constantly, and earn nutrients like calcium in cheese (Babybel cheese & pita chips are my fave low-cal snack) or iron in nuts, which also have healthy fat HDLs that remove bad fat (on your thighs)LDLs. You can eat healthy all day and then workout! If you work out you may burn like 300-500 cal. If you burn 500 cal a day that is a guaranteed pound lost per week! This is a better way because you are eating healthy, gaining nutrients which make your skin glow and hair shinier (also take vitamin supplements), and losing weight and toning up! Without purging…

    i know this is a pro-mia/ana site but seriously.. you only want to lose enough to be healthy? yet you want to be 100 or less? Unless you’re like 4’8, 100 is NOT going to be healthy

    On the other hand, if that’s all you’re eating, you should be losing weight whether you purge or exercise or not

    I have had bulimia for nearly 5 years and was anorexic for 2 years before that. I am 19. The kind of physical and mental damage it does to our bodies cannot even be comprehended until it’s too late. It will ruin your relationships, it will affect you in your job or school. Every organ in your body will feel like it’s dying, and really it is. I’m so sick and in pain every minute of my life. And once you’ve started, not even any of this is enough to make you stop. Life with an eating disorder is absolute hell, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. If you are on this site for tips on how to start or how to “get better”, I beg you to get yourselves help. It’s not worth it.

    geeesuse adaria!! you want to lose enough weight to be healthy???? This is no healthy route to health. This is a sick twisted painful way of trying to find some control in lives that are very out of control. Eating disorders are incredibly complex but most of the time they have nothing to do with food and everything to do with your mental well being and emotional state of affairs. If you want to do this healthier: go gym and eat healthy. This site is practically a cult group for addicts and very sick individuals that need help not tips…. unfortunately… They too will only see it in time. Eventually you too will notice the indigestion, acid reflux, red eyes, puffy cheeks, bloated belly and lethargy to follow. you too will smell your hands in public to check if anyone can notice. You too will start to plan the binges because you finally need to escape and allow yourself that feeling and taste… It will happen. You will see it and eventually all you will want is your old life and your old childhood ways of seeing food

    The thing you guys all seem to be missing is that if someone wants to stick their fingers down their throat, they’re going to. Attacking “pro ana” and “pro mia” sites is gonna do nothing but remove a support network. I mean, honestly, they teach you just about all of the basics in your average every day health class. If someone is disordered and is compelled to act on this information, no amount of saying “omg don’t do it” and “wow you’re stupid” and “it ruined my life stop” is going to convince them otherwise.

    I am restarting on track today because myfitnesspal reset (I forgot to log in after a month of it ugh) and evil candy is hidden in kids rooms not in mine. I have been up since 1 am and only ate a Greek yogurt. I tried over and over to make 900 calorie diet work (lower cal. later) In order to get what I need in it’s 1800 and that’s just boring ass stuff. So I figure eat the 1800 but exercise 2 hrs. a day will burn off 1,000. Then I have room for error. would you eat less or exercise more? So in high school I didn’t eat, college didn’t eat, played tricks on self with food, throw up and binge and purge. Became pregnant stopped gained 90 lbs.! Didn’t lose anything. pregnant again right away gained another 45. Pregnant last time starved self lost 11#. After my last was born I tried to get back into my old lifestyle. I couldn’t last long. Eventually I got gastric bypass surgery. I lost 144# in a couple months. Then my brother died and it was my last brother. The first died already too. I was hit hard. I regained 60 of that. So at this point I only want to get to where I was when he died and go from there. What is good for me is I cannot tolerate rice, bread or pasta and all meat. I throw up automatically. Soda makes me puke. I have to drink protein shakes (haven’t been and my hair is falling out). You aren’t supposed to use as a meal supplement but I recommend these if nothing else. Keep some hair in and muscles. I think you can get away with a Greek yogurt and a shake a day. I have to have 3-4 shakes cause of surgery and a Greek yogurt for every mealtime. I wanted to add some substance like 100 cal. soup, 100 cal. cereal and 100 cal. salad. Or just one. The great thing about being a single mom is I can do what I want. I can work around kids if home.

      So either work but I think you should go with Ana it’s a bit safer and when you purge some of those calories do get absorbed so I feel like it will be faster but at the same time if your going to be working out you do need a small daily amount of calories so you have energy to work out effectively

    Mia is a much less efficient way of losing weight than Ana, and it’s a lot harder on your body, too. You can upset the balance of electrolytes in your body by binging & purging to much & have a heart attack! It is much quicker & better for you to Ana & exercise, then once you’ve reached your target weight find a maintenance diet/exercise plan to help you stay there.

    Why would you tell people, “if you’re not a mia, don’t start” after you just told us all how perfect and normal you are by doing it for 15 years?

    I first discovered bulimia when I was in fourth grade. At the time I didn’t even know what it was, I just knew if I ate a lot, throwing up after made me feel better about myself. I have had body image issues from such an early age, like first grade I was comparing myself to girls around me. I am now a senior almost ready to graduate and my bulimia has been on and off for the past few years, only purging about 6 times a month. Lately however, the past couple months, it has been very much so on. I was in really good shape for most of the year up until about half way through winter. I started to binge eat again and gained like 25 pounds. I was really ashamed and my bulimia came back full swing. I really don’t think bulimia is my issue, I just can’t control myself when I’m eating. Sometimes I eat so much that I cant breath from the pressure of my stomach on my lungs. I have no choice but to throw up in order to feel some comfort.

I cried at first because i felt so guilty, but now i couldnt stop…it’s the only thing i could control, i mean what’s wrong with it,now i can wear smaller sizes, i feel lighter, especially when people would say i look better… the attention from other people especially from perfect mother it feel good…i started 80 kg now im 63 kg i’m now obsessing to reach 100 ponds [46 kg ] in 2 months or less..plus i need to run more cause i need to get rid of some of this disgusting skin i have help i need tips on how to get rid of it. i’m half ana and half mia btw.

    PS. Haters…please stop attacking people like us…if you dont want what your reading or bothered about it then leave…dont read. i bet you never had any issues in your life especially about your weight, i bet you never had problems with control…you did not expirience being bullied or heard any comments about your weight or dumped or looked passed or under estimated because of it…and i bet your Perfect.

    Anyone ever considered wearing a glove when they use their fingers to purge? I’m a germ freak when I clean so I have sterile dr-like gloves.. anyway, I put one on, then do the job – I think it helps protect my hands, 1 from smelling & 2, from leaving as big a callous on my knuckles hand..

    Also, I love e-hookahs. They come in every flavor imaginable. feel like chocolate? Just take a puff.. im talking ones with NO NICOTINE. Check them out – bestadvantagesales.storenvy.com

    You can get help easily by calling this hotline from the National Eating Disorders Association 1-800-931-2237, and the website (www.nationaleatingdisorders.org) also provides a brief screening tool to help you understand your own eating habits. You can get into live chat with individuals that care with this resource as well. I hope this helps.

    I have been a bulimic for almost 10 years and I’m in recovery. I just relapsed badly recently, that I decided this year will be my final battle with bulimia. This just has to end.

    The problem with most bulimics or anyone with ED is that they think EATING will make them fat. And ending their ED = ending up fat and miserable. Which is wrong. You don’t have to be bulimic to look fantastic. And to say that to quit your bulimia you should just be happy with who you are–I agree and disagree.

    You should accept who you are right NOW–underweight, normal, overweight or obese–because you have no choice. You have to accept, and face it. And step 2, just remind yourself binge and purge is not a way to live, and eating is OK. Everything can be done in moderation.

    Quitting bulimia is just like struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism. Yes it will be tough, it might get you depressed. But just remember, you’re doing it to have your life back.

    Back about your looks. The problem with eating disorders is one’s obsession with food. Anorexics are afraid of food–simply can’t touch them. Food addicts overeat and obsessed with taste (no expert here, but I’m just trying to make my point clear, so please don’t hate me for this). Bulimics eat, feel guilty, and then they overeat because they think they’ve messed up anyway. And they try to kind of make up for their “sin” by purging. So they feel better if not good (purging releases endorphin so, yes chemicals are involved here).

    But just take a moment. Take a deep breath before you eat. Make every moment enjoyable. Eat like any normal person wood. Listen to what your body needs. Be in control of your body. Regulate your eating habit. Stop before your full. Don’t starve yourself, go for healthier choices that can satisfy you. And when your body gets too demanding, take a bit of a disciplinary act, you will suffer a little bit but it’s worth the effort. Find your passion, distract yourself doing things you love. Take those classes at the gym that you think were too tiring before. Stay active. And wherever the temptation comes close your eyes and take a moment for yourself. It’s not the end of the world. The feeling will end. Just believe in it.

    Because you’re the only one who can help yourself. To regulate your life again. Not to waste many more hours in life in this self-destructing lifestyle.

    Relapses happen, but end it the moment it begins. It’s never too late.

    And trust me, you can look fabulous by eating right, doing just enough amount of exercises (do not over-exercise, because that’s just channeling your purging habit into a new form), and respecting your body.

    Cheers.

    About controlling the hunger. It’s the most painful part. I am lucky enough that I have enough support to ask for unpaid leave for work, so wherever the feeling comes, I just keep myself in bed and not move. When you’re craving you’re prone to make stupid decisions so just hang in there. Don’t do anything. Just know yourself, and only move if you’re sure that you know the right activity to do that will distract you from that hunger. For me it’s reading a good book, doing yoga or boxing, or just going out with my bf.

    Just get to know yourself better.

    Ok karina, that makes a lot of sense, lol, really? I mean seriously, do u think that is realistic to “just stay in bed” what happensxwhen u have to go to the restroom and your will power goes out the window and you head for the fridge? What about those times? My best advice is to chew gum, try to keep as busy as you can and drink chicken broth, it is a good filler also pray for willpower to sustain from eating, staying in bed is a bit illogical
