Check the tips and tricks we published in February. Hope it helps.
I really think you've got to figure out what works for you personally. The "typical" purging techniques don't even work for me.. I couldnt puke from my fingers if my life depended on it.
hv u tried drinking diet coke and then purging.sounds gross but it makes all the food come up easily.if u cant bring anything up then u need 2 stop for a week or two cus wen u do it 4 a long time your stomach holds everything in the moment you put it in.hope ive been helpful for some1
Drinking any liquids with or without food helps alot. Also, so does punching yourself in the stomach hard enough..
drink a glass of warm salt water, it comes up without using the finger-in-throat method. i couldn't bring it up with just my fingers either. this made it easier. oh and stand up rather than kneel, trust me it just seems to help.
I'm really struggling with purging i cant get it all up
ive always had trubble purging but i find useing a toothbrush helps and the showers good to coz, well your parents cant hear u.
when i drink a lot of liquids i find it much easier
gross, don't use your fingers. I use an electric toothbrush (switch off of course). It's really easy.
seasoned vet, unfortunately... use a hanger, bend it with that slight curve that a toothbrush doesn't have. I use one that has a thin rubbery coating on it. And ALWAYS wash before hiding away till the next use. Also, drink a glass of warm water while binging, and before purging. Eat healthy foods first, and if you must, chocolate last (as it can be VERY hard to get back up.) Stay away from peanut butter or products, also very had to get back up, and high in fat.
I start with something like cherries which you can see when it comes up and if it gets digested its not so bad being low calorie. But usually I can even purge that. Then I drink a lot of water through out my binge. I keep sipping water in between... Milk/yogurt and soft cereal, cookies, toast with cheese, egg noodles all come up quite easily. At the end I might have something like cheese cake, brownies or chocolate which all come up very easily. I stick two fingers down my throat as far as I can go and then it all comes up.. I keep at it till I reach the end. Not something I recommend doing but if you must its better to drink lots of water throughout your binge.
This site is fucked up!!! I understand eating disorders and addiction, I am a recovering bulemic and heroin addict. Would you like a tip about heroin??? It causes you to throw up, without any help. The downside? YOU CAN DIE.
Just chug A cup of water(i do 2) then in a few seconds it all comes out! It makes it so easy to do it over and over for me.
I use a toothbrush or if I'm out my fingers. But I NEVER purge if I haven't had diet coke. It makes it so much easier. Drink some while eating and then chug a bit right befor you purge.
I seem to be able to easily purge sitting by the toilet with just one finger. I dont find it hard at all. You get better at it with practice. Moving your finger in circular motions helps. Also drinking liquids before helps quite a bit. The downside , which happens to me, while purging using your finger, it leaves red marks/scars right above the knuckle. Which is a very easy indication for someone to suspect your bulimic. I only purge, which is one session once a day. Being as i dont eat very much anyways. I am partial bulimic. I have started this purging process for a few months.. and my friends all seem to notice that im loosing disgusting amounts of weight.. I certainly reccomend not doing this. Because like me..its much harder to stop then it is to start.
^Same^ once started nver end .I always purge wen i eat its hard cuz i dont eat alot!
i've only purged once and only got a little up. how do you get all of it to come up??
I recently started purging. I have bbeen starving myself on and off for about a year. But i find that even if I dont get all of it up, Im not consuming anywhere near what I usually consume. I lose 6 pounds in a week which is alot. I was on a medication that made me gain 45 extra pounds, and now Im trying to get it off. Anyways Im thankful I found this blog.
you are sick in your mind. You should seek for help quickly. Mother Nature is so much strong than you, why do you stand against her? Shame on you.
Ok help! I just ate a lot of junk food...about 2000 calories today! I am new at this. What should I do?
looking at all the posts on this site, i feel so sad. i've been binging/purging since i was 11 years old and now i'm 39... and no closer to being sane about food, or control, or anything else. i've had oodles of therapy and this shit never goes away. i look at all the posts on this site and i'm still right there with you, wanting to figure out some magical trick that will take the weight off, make me feel in control of myself, make everything ok... ladies, from a 28 year b/p veteran, the weight just gets harder and harder to lose as the years go by and you never feel better about yourself no matter what you weigh.
I just started purging because I'm so tired of being fat but I'm kind of scared I'm going to have some bad consequences. But as long as I'm skinny idc.. how much weight can you loose w/n a month if u purge after every meal.. I want to loose 30 lbs any ADVICE………??
Purging after every meal between mid-October and December took off 35lbs for me. In January, however, I reached a plateau and didn't lose a pound. I've only just gotten back into the swing of things by going on a simple three day fast, then resuming purging as usual with smaller portion sizes. The weight loss will slow down, but you can handle it if you know its coming. This is a strictly personal account, though, so I hope it helps.
okay so here are my tips. as stated above, drink lots of room-temperature water. for me, a toothbrush works best. i can actually make myself sick now just by gagging, but the toothbrush helps me to get everything up. if you don't get everything up, drink some more warm water and wait another ten minutes. don't wait more than thirty minutes after eating before you bring the food back up, though, or you will begin to digest. gross. i like to purge once per day, and only after my planned indulgence of the day. i decide if it's going to be lunch or dinner and then i plan ahead. if it's lunch and i'm going to be in the office, i eat as early as possible to avoid the postlunch bathroom rush. if i'm going to be home, i make sure to say something about washing my hair after dinner so i don't have to blowdry in the morning. (i have wild long wavy hair so i get away with this excuse!) i can also get away with saying i am really cold and want to shower before i change into my pjs. everyone is used to this by now, fingers crossed. the last thing is, purging DOES make you ugly. if you push too hard, your whole face goes red and sometimes little capillaries burst around your eyes. for this reason, make sure you drink while you eat, as the food will definitely come up a lot quicker. i'm sure diet coke is great but i don't see the point in consuming even one extra calorie when warm water will do the trick. just my POV, with respect to everyone. last thing: purge till you lose all the weight and then go on a maintenance diet. eat normally - this will make you and the people who love you feel secure. you CAN STILL PURGE! just save it for when you've had a bowl of pasta or a big thai meal or some other calorie-craz meal. that way you will stay slim without attracting negative attention or driving yourself crazy. final word: i look at it this way (be warned, this is gross) ALL FOOD IS POO. even sitting on your plate, it's on its way to being poo no matter how good it looks or smells in the moment. that's normally enough to keep me eating half or a third of what is on my plate, and more than enough to bring it up, when my stomach is full. i am over thirty, five feet seven, and i went from 180 to 120 in one year and have kept it off for two years. PRO MIA!
this is sick i cant believe you are all giving advice on how to purge. eating disorders are serious you can die from them as someone who suffers from one and who was hospitalized for over a year... this makes me sad. you all need help this website shouldn't even exist.
I find that putting pressure on my stomach with my hands then attempting a gagging motion i can usually get it up. saves the obvious scars, if not, 3 pint glasses of water then i nearly always can as i want to throw up anyway, but you've got to drink them quickly in succession.
Everyone who says purging is disgusting and you need to get help and such, just stop. We're not here to listen to you tell us we need to get help. I have been trying to purge lately using my fingers, but only a tiny amount comes up. What do I do with the uvula? Do I go above or below it? Does anyone have any advice to make it all come up easier/faster? My gag reflex is very weak and it takes forever just to get like 1% of what I ate out. Please- advice/Tips is greatly appreciated.
I've just started purging a couple days ago, so far I really enjoy how light I feel after it. I don't actually 'binge' though so it takes FOREVER and I don't feel like I'm getting up as much as I've just eaten. I'm going to try the water trick cause that sounds like it should work. Any other tips?
Has anyone on here tried the babyfood diet?
I've always been upset about gaining weight and i try to purge my food but it never works. Tomorrow i'm going to try drinking heaps of water and the toothbrush any more tips: please leave some
i usually dont eat alot in the day but then get hungry sometimes and eat biscuits and rubbish stuff but not crazy amounts...then when i bend over or walk around abit im just sick without having to do anything else... does anyone kno why this is????
Do you know anything about that idea where you drink a ton of water and then swallow a teaspoon of rock salt? I heard it makes you throw up in maybe ten minutes time? What do you think? have you tried it?
Hey peeps I am searching for some tips on fixing the appearance problems that come from binging and purging - the bloated face, skin problems, dark circles, etc. The face bloat is really the worst. I usually just b/p at home at night alone, but I wake up looking like a hot mess! Anyone got some tips?
^^^^^^^^^For the bloated face, just gargle some water right after you purge, then use mouthwash, then brush your teeth about an hour later. It works, and it won't ruin your teeth. I've been doing this for about four months now, because I was, like, 150 at 12 years old. Now I am still 12, but a healthy 110.
I'm a countery girl so i go to the barn to purge, but when I'm in the house and I can't go to the barn I go in the shower, but When its all chunky it wont go down the drain. any help. I'm new at this and I only need to loss 14-16 pounds, I have no clue on how I can do this at school. Please help me, I'm not attact but I do want to louse a little waight.
Join the club I started to purge a few weeks ago. What I tend to do since your right sometimes, depending on what you eat there are chunks. So after dinner when I am home since my parents are downstairs. I tell them that I'm going to take a shower turn on the shower purge into the toilet. Than I jump Ito the shower tans a shower. Than when I get changed and flush the shower after the water is turned off so. So my parents see my hair wet and so I have a backup to my purging. The school part is hard bid there are any private bathrooms use them. Also if there is a womans bathroom that knowbody really uses purge in there. Hope this helped p.s I really need a Mia buddy Fe free to email me at email@example.com
Tips from years of experience. It's easier to purge a lot rather than small meals. It's easier to hide if you're not disappearing to the bathroom all day. So eat nothing or just fruit then binge and purge once. Plan it. Fruit also makes sure you don't get constipated and bloated from no food going through your system. It also keeps your metabolism goingDrink alot of diet coke, beware too much liquid though it can go up your nose when you purge. Drink as much as you can after so you don't get dehydrated. It's better for your skin & heart. Don't purge in the sink, it blocks and you'll get caught. Running a bath or shower hides the sound and allows u time for the red eyes to go away without suspicion. Always stand up. U need to tickle your gag reflex, so move your fingers around. Beware the lip on the inside of the toilet, stuff gets stuck where you can't see it. Fold paper under the near side of the toilet and it will flush away. Wash your hands and face after. Check your clothes and the bathroom and make sure there are no splashes anywhere. Be prepared to fix your eye makeup and freshen up if you're not at home. U will look like a panda after if u wear mascara or eyeliner. Avoid pasta, rice, crackers, anything sharp like chips. The softer the better. If u r at school or work go to the bathroom at the quietest time. So long as no one sees you go in, you can wait til anyone in there leaves and then leave the stall. The ppl who see you leave won't have heard u. Don't wear anything with a collar or wristbands, rings and bracelets, they get in the way. U can take them off but u might forget them.Take multi vitamins, hardly any calories but they will stop your hair and skin drying out. Bulimics should be able to pass for healthy, that's the upside. Now the warnings:Dehydration is dangerous, it affects your heart among other things. If u purge it, it doesn't count, same goes for fluid. Keep track of what u drank and how often u peed. You will avoid bad skin. Diet coke and stomach acid will yellow your teeth so make sure you gargle after and brush and floss awhile later. Always keep ant acids on hand. Long term u will have problems from not digesting normal food. Even a taste of something can lead to the worst acid. It will make u nauseous until u purge and then it will burn all the way up. Alcohal and this do.not.mix. U will burn whatever stomach lining u have left by drinking on an empty stomach. The dehydration makes for the worst hangovers even when u drink very little. Dramatic weight loss plus poor nutrition leads to stretch makes and saggy skin. Moisturise and take vitamins. I lost 80 lbs and it changed my life BUT I live alone to avoid hassle of hiding from room mates. It's a tough cycle to break and your stomach needs to recover. Long term u will be unable to digest anything without problems. If u r smart u will use it as a temporary fix and only if u slip up on a diet. If u learn to avoid things u and will need to purge and exercise a little your metabolism will kick in & u will avoid all the problems that come with this. No judgement ladies, just the facts. If u r happy and healthy u will always look hot so do ur best to focus on that. Consider it a quick fix not a lifestyle.
hey guys- im need a supporter and person to talk to- like to incourage me to purge and lose weight- kinda like a pen pal per sayemail me= firstname.lastname@example.org
anyone who needs a pro mia buddie- for support- im here cuz i need one tooooemial me- email@example.com
Stick a spoon down your throat (like a teaspoon - not a large spoon). Place the spoon side (not the handle) down your throat, so the concave side lies with your tongue. Apply pressure with the spoon to the back of your tongue. It will all come up. I used to be a toothbrush girl until I figured this out. Even large binges only take about 15 minutes to get up. Also, the spoon helps to "stream" the purge, so it misses your teeth a bit more...For afterward - tea will neutralize the acid in your mouth... swish with some lukewarm tea after your purge. Take Motrin for the facial swelling. Have a couple of glasses of water to prevent dehydration. Chewable children's vitamins also help replenish lost vitamins from purging.I've been at this for the last 9 years. Trust me, it sucks. But I'd be lying if I said that I didn't get some sick pleasure out of knowing that I can eat an entire pizza in one sitting and not face the weighty consequences for doing so.
I use a spoon and I keep it in the bathroom drawer. The toilet does not work for me, I put a small plastic bag in the sink purge into the bag once I am empty I tie the bag up and toss it down the shoot. No signs no trace. I don't recommend this as a form of weight loss it's rather disgusting. I try to control it by only doing it a few times a week, I don't binge, I only eat lean meats, veggies and fruit no day do I eat over 1000 calories but at night regardless of what I eat I need it out. I exercise 90-120 minutes a day all cardio.
Hey, I started purging pretty intensely a few months and lost about a stone which was lovely, I was so happy!! However I tried weening myself off it - woops. Bang and the weight is back (all my once admiring friends are now mega confused at my shifting weight, and boys again look disgusted by me). I think i'm at a stage were my stomach isn't letting me get the food up anymore so what I'm looking for is advice on laxatives? I don't know how or when to use them to erase the binge, so surely someone can help?! I can't weight to look like I did again! Haha..
what works for me is to chug water purge and then chug more water, and purge until the water comes out clear
Ive been purging for almost a year now. Only maybe once a day unless I'm super stressed out then I'll b/p more. Anyway, I used to be able to get it all out in little time. Now my gag reflex is weak and I'm having trouble getting ANYTHING out. It's just making my nose really stuffy and only some acid is coming up. Toothbrushes arnt working. I used to be a pro at this! WTF happened?!
I have a very low gag reflex. I can never seem to get the vomit out?! It just doesn't work for me. I just gag, my eyes get watery, my throat flexes and that's about it.Help?! I've only been using my fingers (my fingers are pretty long, but maybe not long enough?). Should I use a spoon?
I have not been doing this long but am enjoying how I feel after purging. The only thing I hate is the sore throat after, any ideas?
I've been doing this on and off since I was 17, I did reach my target weight 2 years ago but now I'm in a bad relationship & weigh the most I ever have, I'm at my wits end, if I'm not purging I'm binging, if I'm not binging I'm working. Some people around me know but no one gets involved & I've always coped but I stumbled upon this site and well I'd like some encouragement to get back into the 'good' practices I had and out of these extreme control issues. Anyone else have stages of desperation?
A few years ago I used to purge and lost lots of weight, now I've put some back on and am desperate to get rid of it. I've been doing pilates, yoga and running 4 times a week but just can't shift that little extra bit. The only thing is I can't purge anymore. I can't use a toothbrush, it hurts too much, and my fingers only bring up a little bit. I can't resist hunger pangs so ana isn't really an option. I'll try the spoon method and let you know how it goes.
My body purges naturally for me, I've gotten to the point that I starve myself so I don't throw up because it's painful and obvious....Does anyone else have problems with little red dots all over their face when they purge? I get them bad, right around my eyes is the worst and they stay there for days. I'm tired of people wanting to know what's wrong with me, any tips on how to hide this? Oh, and before my body started doing it automatically I found that drinking a glass or two of salt water would make everything come up super easy.
Ugh, just a note, if you're going to purge avoid Dominos pizza. It burns so bad coming up that it's ridiculous!
I use my fingers, push then as far down and like wriggle then around.Diet coke really helps but very suspicious suddenly taking it to the bathroom. Water is so good! Drink lots whilst eating and then before ur gonna purge.Only thing is, it only works for me if it's like I the next 5 mins after eating and it takes a long time to get it up. Not that much cones up as well :/ I'm trying to get my technique right, so I get up at like 2 am everynight eat a little something and then try to purge . This is so I can get the technique right and later on it is done better and quicker. TIP: when gagging cough a little bit, it really helps to open your throat up and more cones up. It's best to stand up, but standing and bending over works too.
I've been trying to purge for the past few days yet nothing seems to be coming up but saliva. I hardly trigger my gag reflex eventhough I stick my fingers into my throat as far as they can go and I have also tried using a toothbrush. And I drink water before trying to purge. Has anyone experienced this? What else can I do?
Purging is really really bad and a dangerous cycle to get into, but if you insist on doing it this is how i try to manage it. drinking something fizzy throughout helps a lot. wiggle your fingers slightly around at the back of your throat, also if you hate purging as much as i do rocking slowly when doing it is comforting. keep a radio in your bathroom, sometimes just putting the shower on may not be enough especially if your in an en suite bathroom and someone's just outside the door. the main and most important thing is not to rouse suspicion. once you do, everyone will be watching you. and when ppl tell you you've lost weight don't get defensive or deny it and never talk about being fat people will know you have issues if you complain about your weight bcos you're probably thinner than them anyway. there's loads of tips/tricks but i think different things work for different ppl. i would agree with the other person who said if you're clever about it purging can be really handy. it allows you some sort of release and you dont have to feel guilty. but its stupid to do it all the time bcos you need to be in control of it. once you lose control you should stop immediately.
i hate when everyone calls it mia, its so lame. it's not a person or even a thing, its something you do. you can control it. i'm not going to preach at you to not do it, i would be a huge hypocrite if did, but stop pretending its something its not. for whatever reason you make yourself sick, you do it, and if you want to you can also stop doing it
hi can someone post some info about laxatives please. can you buy good ones at regular pharmacies and supermarkets? and how long do they take to start working? and is it a safe way to binge(i mean safe as in the food wont be absorbed by the body before they start working)?any brand suggestions? thanks
I have been gaining tons of weight lately and I was thinking purging would be a good solution to my issues. Are you supposed to do it right after eating or a little while later? I just ate and I want to because I feel disgusted with myself.
I just recently began to purge and am finding it quite easy, does the weight loss start immediately or does it take a little while???
Hi in reply to the lax comment. Use ducolax (generic is just as good) it's a gentle lax. I prefer it any day. Take 1-3 (I use 3 for a quick fix after binging). I discourage lax use because your still absorbing the calories but every once in a while it's good to clear your bowels. I've heard using laxatives in cycles is good but I don't recommend it because of discomfort. Regular womens laxatives gives me bad cramps so I prefer gentle. I also like magnesium citrate (comes in a clear bottle). It runs you maybe $1.50 a bottle. It works wonders! Drink the whole bottle and in a night you will have lost at least 2 lbs. Good luck and be careful. Cheers
hey guysX!i'm new to this whole blogging thing has anyone got anyone got any good tips on how to purge faster and make it more successfull pls write to me my blog name is wantingtoloseweightfast.And if anyone can tell me how much of a binge do u need to purge well enough to lose weight pls contact me
I'm getting back into the swing of things... I started 5 years ago I was at a 22 pant size in 3 months I went down to a size 13/14... got pregnant and gained 55lbs during pregnancy that I was fine with. My baby needed it. a month after went back to a size 16... however 3 years later at a size 18. I work 10 hours aday chase my son till he falls asleep... then exercise if I have the energy. And have realized or it feels like I have to go back to what worked for me. I need support... email me: firstname.lastname@example.org thanx!
To the lax question,I use lax everyday without fail. it's my massive addiction. And yeah I have heard it's real bad for ya bla bla but I can't stop it's the only way I feel good during the day. I love the cramps it gives me and it also makes u bloated so u don't feel like eating.The brand I use takes about 1-6 hours to work but it's the most powerful pill form of lax u can get in Australia over the counter.If I have eaten a lot I will take like 7-14 pills. Sometimes it works right away which I love but sometimes it will take a while. Drink shit loads of water I recon that makes it come faster. And plus u don't want to get dehydrated.Beware thou, u cant just eat what ever u want cos lax does not get rid of everything!!! don't solely rely on lax for weight loss.I want to start purging so help me please:).... email me at; email@example.comAna is no longer effective for me, due to supervised meals.Whats up with the salt thing????Ana buddies, mia buddies email me or www.thoughts.com- user name ana11
Hi, I have been trying to purge and have so far failed, but these tips sound like they might help alot.Will purging make my face fatter though? I am wanting to lose weight off that as well as the rest of my body.Can somebody give me an idea of things that I should expect?Thankyouu
So, I'm concerned about my teeth, would it affect my teeth within a 3-4 month period?If so, how much?
As far as how quickly can I expect some weight loss...I lost 6 pounds this week!!!
I find it easier to put both my middle fingers and move them around in the back of my throat and don't take them out until you puke. It may sound gross but I works. The only thing for me is keeping it secret in school
I need help with purging. I used to be heavily anorexic and worked out ridiculously until I started havimg medical problems that caused my parents to take me off swim team etc. Now all I do is gain a ridiculous amount of weight, Im a huge 135and only 14 years old. Im a dancer so theres a lot of pressure on me to be thin and beautiful,and Ive lapsed into insane eating patterns where I cannot control myself. I know the only thing that can help me is throwing it up, but i cant. i hae this overwhelming fear of making myself throw up. ive tried the salt water thing but it hasnt worked,and I need some way to make it work without jamming anything down my throat, especially as I have next to no gag reflex. if anyone can help its appreciated.
I've been B/Ping every single time I eat for the past week, and it's worked amazingly. I've lost 10lbs already, and my stomach is so slim it feels amazing. It was hard to get it all up in the beginning but now it's incredibly easy. And he only noise I make is the vomit hitting the water, so I can mask that with running water easily.I find having three fingers working in a circular motion on the bump in the back of your throat works best. It's also easier if you're standing up, with your head bent down so it's below your abdomen.Red Jello is also a good marker (Eat it first) It's low in calories, tastes good, and is very visible when coming up.Oh and thanks for the tips on the bloating face issue, I'll try them, that's my biggest complaint about it lol.
Hi guys! how do i reduce the puffiness of my face and the redness of my eyes? and which is easier,to stand up or to bend over? and i also get stomach aches after i purge,i know i would get stomach pains but why do i get it?
Hey I've been purging for 2 weeks and i've lost 20 pounds but recently i've had a really sore throat which makes it really painful to purge (I use a toothbrush) I was wondering if anyone has any tips to purge without bothering my already agitated throat.And for anyone who is new i learned the hard way that cheese itz aren't a good thing to binge on it's like throwing up rocks. I used to love them but I don't anymore haha.
I just recently started purging because my prom is coming up and I want to look as THIN as possible in my dress. I have about 5 - 7 lbs left to go. Does anyone think its possible to loose this weight by June 4th???
Totally possible to lose 5-7 pounds by June, but you'll have to restrict as well! Say hello to Ana! :) I would suggest fasting until dinner time, then easting as little as possible and purging it all up! Drink a shit load of water, take vita supplements in the mornings (don't purge them.. duh!) And exercise as much as you can, small bursts are best to keep your metabolism up! Also, chill! I'm sure everyone will notice how thin you've got without losing those extra pounds! We do tend to see ourselves a little bigger than everyone else does! :D Good luck xoxo

hi, ive been ana for 3 years and really struggling atm because my flat mates have started supervising my meals. i tried to purge - sometimes, even if i eat only a little bit i feel that i need to - but neither the fingers, toothbrush, spoon, salt water worked :( I'm really desperate for any help you guys could give me. Im 5 foot 8 and 100 pounds - have put on 5 pounds since this supervised food thing started :(
To the person who asked about the burning in her throat, thats because of the HCl in your stomach. to counteract it, drink something that's a base, like milk or even milk of magnesia. Don't drink a stronger base like ammonia-- that'll be really, really bad.

I use that and it does seem to work better then my fingers or a toothbrush...but I need to lose weight fast and I don't seem to be doing it as easy as before...I have gained weight and people have noticed...help help help...I need to lose weight
I'm definitely trying the spoon. Tonight was my first real successful purge, and although I'm quite successfully following a diet I want to be able to purge when I slip up (like tonight). So with the spoon, I'm confused, curved down or up?And I've been getting acid reflux for like an hour after purging, is that normal?
Okay so I'm a beginner.. Ive tried gagging myself with my finger before and it didn't really work (to miss school :P)I'm really looking for a mia buddy/ Ana buddy..If you have any tips or advice.. I'd really appreciate it :)I just want someone to talk to and help me get the hang of this. I'd REALLY appreciate any help you guys have to offer!My email's:Surup_indahouse@yahoo.com
With the spoon I use a plastic spoon but not one that can break easy...I usually take them from restaurant or gas stations..I use the spoon part, not the handle and usually flip back and forth between the round part and curve part and and go back and forth between sides in my mouth...purging takes a while to concour just don't give up...my gag reflex was a problem in the beginning I just kept at it....I could use a mia/ana buddy too...if u want email me at email@example.com
today was my first purge, and I tried the water trick. I was surprised it actually worked, but it seems like I got maybe 5% of what I ate up. Does it work better over time, or do I just need to find a better trick?
hey is their any1 from uk to share tips it would be even better if their are any guys hear as i am and never seem to see guys on these sites firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi I'm Elle :)I used to be anorexic, i was down to 103 at 5'5", but my mom put me in rehab and i got back to 130ish. Now, ive started a habit of bingeing every night when i get home-im now 158!!!

(Boys you are not alone)Hey, for all you cardio junkies:Start by doing 30 min of strength or resistance training before your cardio. It gets the metabolism going and builds muscle at the same time. That way you appear to weigh more than you do so at doctor's weigh ins it's less suspicious (muscle weighs more than fat by a lot, but it's lean and looks good). If you start with weight training for 30 min, any and all cardio you do will be calorie burning. With cardio exercise you spend the first thirty minutes burning nothing at all. I been at it for years. I don't purge often, I'm more food avoidance. But any food has to come up ASAP. I learned the exercise trick from years of training. I'm an athlete. We HAVE to stay in shape.
i purge between 2-5 times daily. yes im aware its awful but next week im started renfrew center so i dont give a shit. here is what helps me.like we all said drink water ! tons tons tons !! and use two fingers ik its so wierd at first but i need those two fingers. also for protection before you purge and after rub baking soda on ur teeth and rinse. it gets rid of the acid. i personally have never bled or got dots on my face but when i eat something harder to digest (bread, pasta anything high carb i drink more water cause its easier to digest. anyway im 98 lb ! so it works.one more tip if your having a really hard time go upside down for 30 seconds and then try to purge. trust me it will come up.oh and brushing of the teeth is BAD!!!!! it gets rid of enamyl ! do not do it girls do not do it! (BAKING SODA). okay thats pretty much it. going to treatment next week lets hope it works. so tired of this bullshit. bye ladies xoxo
I really want a pro ana/mia txt/email buddy. I'm new to all this but I've been over weight since i was 11 and I'm 18 now. I have prurged off and on since then and I've tried fasting but i have a literal addiction to food. I'm sick of hating myself. I wish i had the self control to just stop all together but i don't. I have been pruging after every meal for almost two weeks and I'm seeing results. two days ago my best fried/kinda boyfriend told me he'll never be with me because i'm fat. hes a body builder/ persona trainer. he stopped talking to me and thats when i knew i had to buckel down and control the disgusting monster inside once and for all. I just wish I had a buddy that I could talk to about all this. My mom has been like 400lbs since i was born so she doesnt understand. I feel alone and I just want someone to talk to so we can support eachother. I'm so terrified of losing control. and becoming my mother. If anyone out there lives in the U.S. and wants a txt/email buddy shoot me and email at firstname.lastname@example.org
nothing worked. salt water, toothbrush, fingers...I also tried to stick straw(because it seemed easier than toothbrush) but only a bit came up even though I chugged lots of water while & after binged :(what else can I do? more tips plzzzzz
I cannot throw up for the life of me! i gag and everything, i even cry but still nada. please more tips!!
Im new to this and i want to know how many pounds is it possible to loose from just purging in one week.
hey i'm looking for a mia/ana buddyemail me at email@example.com who has to try really hard! my gag reflex is really stubborn. tips that have worked for some like this?
I have been purging for about a week now, usually once or twice a day and I find it really easy. What seems to work for me is sticking my middle finger and index finger down to the very back of my throat and then sort of moving them around a bit until I start gagging. I usually gag for about a minute, and I know it sounds gross but keep your fingers in your mouth until you throw up, yes you will get some vomit on your fingers but you can just wash that off later. Before purging I always drink a glass or two of water really fast without having a break and my stomach always feels a bit funny after that so I tend to purge straight away. If you're going to eat a big meal, like dinner before purging then make sure you don't wait longer than an hour before purging as most of the nutrients and calories will be absorbed into your system by then. Also don't use purging as a long term solution to weight loss because the weight will not stay off and you will be likely to experience serious medical conditions if you continue. However, I see nothing wrong with purging to lose a small ammount of weight quickly so long as once you are down to your target weight you stop purging and replace it with healthy eating and exercise to maintain your target weight.
I had been starving and then bingeing/purging with laxatives for about 2 years before i had to admit to myself that laxatives dont work--you absorb all the calories. Anyone who's considering it, DON'T START. It is completely addicting and you gain a lot. So--I need to start throwing up! Not everyday just on occasion when I eat a lot. I have a really really weak gag reflex though and I can't seem to get anything up! Is it easier to purge right after eating, after drinking a lot, standing up, etc? Please give me advice! Anyone and everyone looking for an ana/mia buddy, or if you have any advice, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks!
i just purged before i posted this and i found that keeping my toothbrush in the back of my throat durning it helps it all come up. and i tried the water trick, and it really worked
HeyIve Been Trying To Purge For About A Week Now. The Only Success Was When I Got Pissed And Stuck Toothbrush Down My Throat, No Problems What Soever When I Done That.But Obviously I Cant Drink Everynight To Do This.I Only Mange To Bring A Tiny Bit Of Puke Up Each Time I Try, And I Sit The For 30 Mins Each Time Then I Give Up, I Get The Shakes And Cold Sweats From It.I Really need To Do It, I Weigh 144lB And Im Aiming For 100Lb.Ive Tried Salt Water, Does Nothing But Give Me Dry Mouth And Peels Inside Of me Mouth.I Drink Alot before I Try, Still Nothing, Not Even the drink.Im So Despereate To Get Where I Was Before I Had My Two Lil Girls.I Starve Also, But Then People Force Me To Eat By Sitting And Watching Me, To Make sure.
Hey!Today I managed to purge for the first time. I have tried to purge before, but unsuccessfully. I drunk a lot of water during my binge and then I used spoon to purge. It didn't come out instantly, but it was easier than I thought and I relised how easily you can get addicted to purging. But the bad thing was that I still didn't manage to purge all the food I ate. If you want to talk or a friend then you can email me at email@example.com
Hey guys/ ladies!For me, chugging hot/ warm salt water helps. So does using a long, thin toothbrush. Also, it seems to be easier when I'm standing (another reason why purging in the shower is ideal).On another note, if any of you want support, a buddy, have a question, etc, feel free to email me at HappyBeingAna@yahoo.com :)Love you all! Stay strong, dolls.
I started purging about a week ago. I use my fingers to purge, and ever since last night my throat has been hurting/burning , any tips for making it hurt less?Also, it takes me a long time to bring up all my food, i have to do it little by little and sometimes i'm in a hurry because i have to go out and i don't want my parents to be suspective over why i take so long in the bathroom. So is there any way to make it all come up faster and all together?thank you :}Oh and i would really like a buddy so if anyone doesn't mind, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am more of a fasting bulimic, but I took up throwing up because I feel good about it. Usually I do it only after I had a huge meal that makes me uncomfortably full and bloated, and it depends on what the food was. Like if I had a tiny brownie that was like 200 calories, but doesn't make me bloated, I wouldn't care. I don't count calories, I count how bloated/disgusting I look. Anyway, today I was having a difficult time, even with the toothbrush. So I tried this new thing where I make myself gag after burping by drinking a lot durings my binges and chugging a carbonated beverage like diet coke or seltzer. They key is to hold your stomach as tight as possible, and as your burping, don't stop, like keep reching and it'll come up. It's a little painful but it works, I do this also with the toothbrush combo. It's a sure deal.
Anyone ever hear of exercise and proper nutrition? Making yourself puke is not the answer. I came onto this website to look for tips myself but after reading everyone's comments, I feel ashamed and stupid!! In just 9 short months, I lost 14 pounds and am currently 5'5"/123 lbs/13% body fat. I eat food and I love it! Yes, I cheat sometimes and eat 3 pieces of pizza (like tonight) but tomorrow is a brand new day which means I will start off with a healthy breakfast and then a trip to the gym! Best of luck to everyone out there. PS-it's obvious to identify those who purge, and guys find it disgusting and extremely unattractive. I eat steaks and am still a size 2! It's possible ladies, just keep your head up and out of the damn toilet!
Uhhm I am a guy and I purge, so yeah, you don't know what you're talking about.
I need tips on how to purge easier! Whenever I purge all that comes up is acid and barely any food. Also, when i purge whatever i ate FIRST is the first thing to come up. Yesterday i had half a turkey sandwich and 2 waffles and when i tried to purge all that came up was a little of the sandwich. Does this happen to anyone eles??
I have been purging for a week now...I can feel myself becoming thinner...I use a toothbrush to gag myself and I find it works really well...my question is..does it rot your teeth really bad? I have been taking the advice not to brush until an hour later...I was looking for some peoples experiences w the whole teeth thing...thanx
I bought laxatives but never know when I should take them. Before or after I eat? And if before, how long before I eat?
I normally just drink lits of water then use my fingers but it takes forever.. any tips? oh & how do I avoid the sore throat? "/
Yes, purging does ruin your teeth - no matter what precautions you take. I have been anorexic and bullimic for over 10 years and am about to have my two front teeth replaced and all the enamel repaired on the rest costing over $6000. You might think it helps you lose weight but purging only gets rid of a maximum of 1/2 the calories you have eaten no matter how good you think you are at it or whether you get rid of your 'marker' food or not. I had a heart attack last year because of my disorder and I have not had my period for 9 years and can never have children. Im only 28. I am not preaching to you all but get out while you still can. My eating disorder has ruined my life!!!

Hey there ive been bulimik for overa year now..one thng to do is to drink somethngbefore u binge this helps to soften the food up while u binge.but keep drinking tho..also i kouldnt use my fingers either but takingin breaths while gagging helps..aaand to avoid a sore throat..u might wanna purge right after u eat and do no wait..the longer u wait to purge the more acidik the food will taste when it komes up..and acid kan sting ur throat..
people dont understand that this is a choice. i understand and want someone to encourage me to keep going. everyone around me says i should stoop but that isnt what i need. i need a buddy to help me get through the day and keep on this track. my email is email@example.com
Hello everyone!I've been in the ana/mia lifestyle since I was 12...currently 25 now. Tip I've found useful when purging is... after I throw up I firstly rinse out my mouth with just water...wait some time before you use mouthwash or brushing your teeth. The enamel and gums are still "settling" from the acid in your stomach. If you wait some time (I usually go about half and hour to be safe) then your gums aren't as raw, hence won't bleed as much and your teeth will be a little safer. If anyone would like to help me get back on track (I was put onto meds that made me gain a stupid amount of weight...please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.orgMy current stats (so ashamed and my fiance has noticed the disgusting weight gain) 5'5 current weight: 132 lbslowest weight:118 lbsgoal weight: 110 lbs Wishing everyone the best!!! Do take care of yourself ladies (and gents), remember to stay hydrated and try to take your vitamins...your hair, skin etc will keep looking healthy. Mwa!!
I am 24 and 5ft 3". I weigh 17 stone and I know. I am fat. I purge easily when brushing my teeth (twice daily) and I hardly eat anything. Why am I so fat???? I want to get down to 8 stone. Please help me, i am disgusted with myself. If you can help me lose weight then i'd be eternally greatful! email@example.com

Hey guys so I started purging when I was a freshman in high school I stopped for awhile and I now weigh 153 I guess I just need someone to push me through it and keep me on track I'll do the save its just so hard the reason I stopped was because my parents found out and sent nee to therapy I now live with my gf and best friend I'm always with her so its hard to hide it I've had to keep my purging hidden till she falls asleep but its never right after I eat its just so frustrating I wasn't to be at 120 again any tips
I'm new to the ana/mia world, and I live in a really controlling household. I can get away with not eating until dinner time, and I have to eat all of what I'm given. After I feel like a failure and like my hard work was for nothing. But my parents would notice if I purged right after, any ideas?? or advice? Also I'm looking for an ana/mia buddy, to keep me motivated and help me with tips and such, so if your interested email me at: email@example.com Thanks xoxo
Hey everyone,I am looking for a buddy to motivate me/support me...someone who understands all of this. I have been bulimic for the past 5 years and know my stuff. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
For all of your girls asking for tips on how to purge - i dont think you understand what you are going to get yourself into. I dont want you to pitty me when i say this because thats not the point, it is to scare you out of doing whatever your about too. i was diagnosed with bulimia at the begining of 2011.. but had been suffering for a whole year before then. I soon became both bulimic and anorexic and am still suffering now. It wasnt until recently i started feeling the affects of bulimia, i was a singer - and was trying to make a career out of it however now i have no hope as i have basically lost my voice purging. I cannot swallow anything properly anymore as the back of my throat is too imflammed. my hair is falling out, my teeth are rotting, the skin on my knuckles is ripping off these are just the affects of bulimia alone, not counting all the other severe physical problems Anorexia has caused me. But these are just things on the outside these are things an eating disorder will ignore and will demand you to forget about, but its the fact that even after a year of intensive treatment i am not cured, i have gotten well temporarily and relapsed once again. I know your frustration i know how it feels but if you cant accept yourself without an eating disorder, what makes you think you'll be able to with one either. do yourself a favour that could save yourself from everything i've gone through - get some help, exit this page, and do not use an eating disorder as an option for weight loss. it wont make you beautiful it will make you ugly. take it from somebody that knows.
Hey I've been bulimic for 2 years now but have any been using laxatives, I tried making myself vomit by sticking 2 fingers down my throat but only a bit came back. It's just really frustrating as im wanting to lose another stone and i want to lose asap any tips would be great! :)
I eat average size but I need to lose weight so I've been purging but the last few days all I've been getting up is saliva! I used to be able to do it fine now I cant. Idk wat to doResond to email@example.com
Alot of the time I puke after I panic. It's a reflex reaction when I eat too much or feel uncompfortably full. I don't really think about what I'm eating before hand, but the easiest things to throw up for me are pizza, rotissery chicken, ice cream, chinese food. These foods are greasy sinful and come up with almost the same taste as they went down. If you plan to throw up eat something healthy first or something brightly colored to know when you have emptied your stomach. If you pass a 30 minute point before puking your body has begun digesting most of the calories in the food. This means you may still gain weight even if you empty your stomach. If you still need to purge, Drink lots of water. I drink warm water when binging. I try to drink almond milk before I binge also, its low calorie and acts as a base to nutralize the acid that is hitting your teeth. keep water next to your sink when you are ready to throw up. I use a baby spoon (the plastic kind) and let it fall handle down my throat to trip the gag reflex. I always stand and tilt my head toward the toilet, this lets gravety take it's coarse. If I haven't thrown all of my food up I drink the water next to the sink and wait a few seconds before trying again. between purgings I wash my mouth out with water from the sink. keeping the sink running helps you wash your mouth out and drown out the sounds of coughing from the other side of the bathroom door. Brush your teeth immediately after with a toothpaste that has xylatol in it. This helps keep your enamal from rotting off the teeth. brush the back of your teeth twice because these are the teeth getting hit with stomach acid. The longer you wait to purge and the less water you drink, the more stomach acid could affect your teeth. rinse your mouth out with mouthwash after. When you are done purging you may notice your face may become swollen. This is normal. my lymph nodes and cheeks swell and look terrible after. My eyes are usually always thin and bloodshot when I'm done. It is important to drink as much water as you can after your binge. Not only will it help get the acid out of your throat, it will hydrate your body. If I binge too often my skin becomes very dry, my hair doesn't grow and I break out. so needless to say hydration is extreamly important. Eat healthy foods that are vitamin rich or contain potassium to counteract cronic dehydration symptoms. also I find that when I get into a binge purge cycle I am more likely to have a stronger appetite and eat more or binge more. My rule is never more than twice a day, never more than three times a week. Weight loss comes best with a very low calorie diet, rest water and exersize. Binging for me has become a very hard addiction to break away from.
Have any of your tried going to the GYM! Its a magical place that helps you loose weight rather than killing your body from the inside out. Just saying. Ladies your way better than this and I have to ask.... how would you feel if your son or daughter did this to them selves? Would you seek help for them or would you stick your finger down their throat to help out??????
Hi I'm ana and Mia and looking for a pen pal to help motivate, swap tips, etc. if youre over 18 and want to write, email me. Sorry younger ladies, want to make sure I'm chatting with someone going through the same stage in life as me. Look forward to chatting! :)Lizzypage21@gmail.com
To the people who are commenting that they're just getting water out: Especially at first it won't be quick. Just leave your fingers or toothbrush or whatever in there until it comes up. You have to be patient. Play some music from the next room or something, take a breath and keep trying.
I usually stick my fingers down my throat and hit the back of my throat as i bring them up. it forces (my) body to bring the food upo as i also flex my abs. once nothin else comes up i -drink water (warm from the sink) and -jump arround a bit so the water mixes with my food, than start again until i reached my marker.
I am confused. Is this longer than 3o minute thing really a fact? You WILL gain weight if you binge longer than 30 minutes? Also, does the amount of b.p. u do affect if you gain weight? For example 1/day or 1/week... ? Does that make a difference or affect if weight is gained? Some people have binges known to last hours- so you are saying they are definitely gaining weight because it is more than 30 mins? I just dont understand where that exact number came from?
I'm getting pretty pissed here. I have been trying to get myself to purge for over a year now and nothing fucking works. I've tried pretty much everything but ipecac and I really have no way to get ahold of that. I now realize I have a pretty strong stomach and that angers me because I want to get everything out and Im running out of epsom salt (pretty strong laxative). Can anyone give me some ideas or something that can help me purge with this "strong stomach" issue? Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank-you everyone for the tips here, I could really relate to what everyone says because I am desperate to lose weight and I've never been able to purge... But! For the first time just now I purged all my meal. (Which is good for me, idc what other people say.) Personally I found using a toothbrush in circular motions worked.
Hi, all your tips are really nice I have to try the spoon!Do any of you smoke? because sometimes when I have a fag I get sick and it helps! It works better when I'm really full with the same food because I get sick and just want to vomit! The only down side are some pains on my throat but usually it gets better on the next day... I want to speak with all of you so here is my email: email@example.com add me and share your tips with me, I would like some mia buddys :D kiss xx
I am sooooo addicted to food. With me its like either starve myself or eat and throw up. I'm not like super extreme yet. I don't purge little things like chips cause they are usually spicy and I don't do my drinks. But I do purge my meals and I love it and hate it at the same time. I hate that my eyes and nose runs and I can NEVER seem to get it all. How do you know when you've gotten it all? Sometimes ill just be dry heaving but I know there is more in me. I feel so sad when this happens. I really wanna be able to talk to someone about this, hiding this from everyone sucks. Pleaseee email me firstname.lastname@example.org :))
Its not a for sure number. They are just estimating. Basically, get it out asap.
Fingers/toothbrush down the throat, DO NOT TAKE IT OUT UNTIL YOU VOMIT...that's if you want to vomit anyway.i haven't tried a spoon, i will do that after breakfast tomorrow. great site btw.
Today I looked into the mirror, all I saw was fat.Im 17, 5'4, and 145lbs.I attempted "ana", but couldnt stick to it.Ive tried to diet, but im stuck.This is my first day of "mia", and I ate a cookie (dumb I know), and downed two bottles of water. Used the spoon, and it worked perfect. Here goes nothing;
Tomorrow is the start of my third week purging I missed a few days last week because I didn't want to get caught and god did I feel terrible after not purging I don't binge and I only eat my dinner in the evening really and purge as soon as I can after but I've started to get a pain in the back of my tongue kind of a sharp shock and pain does anyone else have this problem
Hey everyone.So, I've tried to purge after binges and normal meals quite alot but I always seemed to have a problem with it... That was until 3 days ago when I got absolutely wasted :) I'm not even talking about a little bit drunk, I was completely GONE! So bad that I HAD to get it out of me because I couldn't standddd the horrible dizzy sick feeling you get where you're just waiting to be sick.. always like to initiate the vomit when I'm over the limit aha. Now, when I'm drunk and i purge I don't have a problem with it at all (because I usually drink on an empty stomach >.>) and i assumed it was just because it was all liquid. But this time it wasn't! It was everything I'd eaten that day too! Which was over 12 hours intake and was only a small meal which I couldn't purge at the time because my boyfriend was with me and the bathroom is in the kitchen (don't ask) ... So anyway! I was wasted and I spent what seemed like the whole night with my head over the toilet with my toothbrush! and voila, the usual bleh happened.Anyway, this post is pretty much pointless because this has already been said a lot of times up there ^-------- But drinking large amounts of liquid fast REALLY does benefit the process! downing alcohol as fast as you can will also do the trick. In the past when I'd had failed attempts I used saline laxatives after everything I'd eaten an took about 10 of them when you weren't supposed to exceed 2 in 24 hours :| but yeah, it was desperate measures I guess as I'm sure you all know. I still do take them sometimes to get a full clear out. I don't eat anyway, I starve myself for as long as I can, gym excessively daily and take ephedrine diet pills. I also allow myself caffeine with skimmed milk and lots of it! Obviously though there is always that moment of anxiety where you can't resist a good b/p which is where laxatives come in if you fail.Anyway, if anyone wants an ana/mia buddy....Either BBM me, or email me...BBM: 283A42EFEMAIL: KatieBlackHeart_xo@hotmail.com

Hi. I'm 5'11 and 270 and I really need to lose like 50 pounds, but more would be delightful, by July. Clearly, binging is not a problem...purging though. I'm absolutely terrified to throw up and I've probably only ever thrown up like 5 times in my life. But with all these amazing results you guys are talking about, I feel like I need to try this. I starved my self, as in ate nothing and just guzzled water when I was hungry, for 2 weeks and lost 10 pounds but then gained 20 when I began to eat only very little. I need tips on how to do this for the first time and how to get over the fear of throwing up. Please email me email@example.com. I really need you guys<3
Hi:I'm glad being mias work for you, I just can't throw up :( :( :( Right now i'm on a very healthy and low calorie diet that works great, plus i've been in stetic treatments, but today I had a very bad day and jumped into food, of course i felt guilty and spent a lot of time in the bathroom trying to throw up, nothing worked :(At least I think i'm not going to eat much tomorrow cause my throat hurts like hell.Good luck to all
Why'd you come on if your gonna be like that. We do need but who the hell are you to talk? Try going through Ana or Mia!

I need to be skinny. I hate my body. I will try the warm water and salt. I need more tips. I'm ugly and disgusting. Please somebody help me and I will be forever in your debt and gratitude.

PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME i need this so much,thank you
Binging and purging are most deffinitly not ok. Why would you want to have bowel movement all in your toilet? Honestly, you guys need some serious help. I use to purge after everything and I'm only fifteen years old. I went from being 110 pounds to 87 because I purged so much. Just because you're skinny does not mean you are healthy. Would you rather be healthy or dying from lack of nutrience. Be happy for who you are and what you have, because you're special just the way you are. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a hypocritical jackass.
Im 15. 5'3'' and 120 pounds. Just started purging. Starved the past year a little . Need someone to talk to..need a promia buddy a round my age. Just text me 7047988445.(:
Hi am new to this whole b/p thing and a want to know some really easy ways to purge without anyone knowing-especially at school- any tips???Also, is there anything you can do if you are young and can buy over the counter pills? I am 12.
If anybody needs a Ana or Mia buddy, you can text me at (409)-227-1170. I'm here for you❤
For the people against Pro Ana and Pro Mia... Don't waste your time posting your anti comments...no one cares and you just make us more determined to find the info we need and do it.Like the FAT girl showing a video on you tube for Pro Ana/Mia tips n tricks...it was anything but that...I guess Fatty needed some attention n prob should try the tips n tricks herself.
Okay...um this is for people with an eating disorder and dont you think we DO go to the gym? That's basically what we all do.
Try using a toothbrush, that way you dont get it on your fingers and there arnt bite marks, its alot easier.
I seem to have a lot of trouble with purging. Usually I have to get super drunk....any help?
I wish it was that easy. I can't purge, nothing works. My fingers do nothing, I can never make myself throw up sadly. I gag only barely anything comes up, unless I'm nauseous. Tried the drinking water thing cant even do that, water wont come up. Just bloats me up! Electric tooth brush BAD IDEA! That screws up your throat, throwing up blood lots. Toothbrush same way. Yeah drinking seems to be the only way. :/
Guys, please take a moment to read this.I am a medical student also trying to lose weight. However, I have just spent a year with a unit mate who developed severe bulimia and now looks like a skeleton. The boys she wanted to attract by losing weight are now repulsed and talk behind her back, and she had isolated herself from any friends she had. I understand that it is tempting to resort to "purging" after that one indulgence- after all, it only seems fair that since those calories only took a couple of min to consume, that they should be expelled in the same amount of time. However, evolution has not made us this way, considering that our ancestors passed on their survival genes to us, that were handy during famine times. But that bit of science aside. Before you purge again, please take a second to think about how much you do it, and how many times a month/week/day. Everytime you vomit, gastric acid with a pH of less than 2 comes up into your esophagus and mouth before leaving your body. Whilst your stomach is equipped to deal with this type of acidity by means of special epithelium (skin cell type), your esophagus and mouth do not. This means that the acid corrodes your non-protected organs over and over again (This is also why you feel the burning sensation- pain is a warning sign that something is damaging your body).Now your body is a wonderful machine and knows how to heal this damage to a certain degree. However, consistent vomiting will eventually lead the epithelium (skin layer) in your throat and mouth to change, in order to adapt to all the acid. This change of tissue type requires mutations in the DNA of your skin in that area. Mutations in your DNA, when accumulated over time, as in a hyperplasic (simplified to "changing" tissue, cancer is likely to develop. Esophageal cancer, like any cancer, is not nice and takes years of recovery (assuming it is caught early). Now I know that cancer seems far away because most of you are young. But please also consider the following:Purging is terribly exhausting for your heart and blood pressure. Most bulimics who die from this die due to heart failure as a byproduct of heart exhaustion. Also, vomiting puts such a stress on your vascular system, that small vessels burst- as some of you may have noticed around your eyes. Furthermore, every time you empty your stomach, you get rid of acid, which your body has to replenish. Still, the mechanism coupled to this acid production, is the production of bicarbonate which is released into your small intestine. Since you are getting rid of the acid, and not the extra bicarbonate, your body will have a pH imbalance known as metabolic alkalosis, which can lead to breathing problems, movement problems, heart problems, and eventually death.So please, please, think of another way to get/stay thin, and think about whether this has made you any happier than you were before. Talk to a loved one (You cannot rationally think that everyone is out to get you and wants you to become fat- they care about you...)Good luck and thanks for readingC
Tickle your uvula and drink milk or dark soda really fast. Eating a lot more before u purge helps too jus cuz it makes u feel so sick. Eat things that don't mix well in your stomache, too. Like chocolate and macaroni or nachos. That's what makes me vomit. Hope it helps!

I want to know if you guys have any tips and/or tricks to purge easily. Yes i read what others have been posting up but it doesnt seem to work. I have tried the finger the toothbrush but they dontbwork they just make me gag and burp. Please help...
The salt water trick seems to get every bit of food out of me... but it's absolutely disgusting. I use coarse sea salt and down a tablespoon of it with lots of water. Maybe 2 tablespoons depending on how much I ate. Within 5 minutes I bend over the toilet and all of it just pours out of me. It makes you feel bloody sick though and the taste of that salt is so disgusting. I hate doing it but when my fingers, spoon, toothbrush, etc. all fail me, I use it as a last resort. Especially when I eat denser foods like burgers, chocolate, peanut butter, bread, etc. That kind of food never comes back up with the classic finger method... I hate being bulimic though.. I hate it.
I was just here looking for tips to make unavoidable throwing up less painful, but it seems you bulimics aren't actually concerned with that. So much for helping a pregnant lady out.
How do you know that you've thrown ALL of it back up? I'm not new to this but I hate that I'm still "average" weight. I wanna be skinny damn it!
I recently took up purging and could do with an ana/mia buddy. I also have a lot of tips to share, as I also struggled purging at first but finally got it right. I am 18 years old, 5,3 and 140lbs. Goal weight is 115lbsPlease email me at:firstname.lastname@example.org
B/p last nite. Blood shot eyes for like 10 min but felt great afterward. Did today too and with the tips on here made it much easier. Kinda scary how much I like it...
i cant purge, any tips?? i have tried and tried every method imaginable; fingers, spoon, toothbrush, water with salt, mustard you name it and none of it will work. i've tried for up to 20 minutes before and cant ever get more than a baby gag going. and i only ever try after i have a MAJOR binge (like thousands of calories) so its not like i am trying when i dont need to be. please help, im desperate!
Pls stop. This is no way to live. It seems ok when you're younger, but when you get to be my age, it's just pathetic and sad. I have no life and would prob be better off dying and donating organs to someone who wants to live. Not trying to be a real downer, but it becomes a trap, believe it. Save yourself while you're young.
Hey :)One of the easiest methods of purging is drinking like two litres of water, and then drinking a mixture of mustard powder and baking soda. No need to jab anything in your throat. Maybe just at the beginning to induce it, but it just flows out. Also, feel free to email me at email@example.com
I really like your last comment......" once you lose control you should stop immediately."Surely the point is that when you lose control, you can't stop !!
I cant purge... I tried it for a week or two and all i get is saliva and lots of gagging. How do i get it all out. It feels so awful to have that sick bloated feeling. I stuck my fingers in for as long as 40 minutes. Why am i such a failure D:
Is it really true that when you throw up you only get rid of 50% of the calories you just ate?
Hello:) So I'm really worried. I'm a bulimic and I've been having chest pains since yesterday and difficulty breathing. My nose is really stuffed and major headaches. I purged the first time today in a week. Any reasons why this is happening? Oh, and there are some white spots on my teeth. Thank you!
Hi! I'm 13 and I've really wanted to start purging but I'm scared i'll get caught! My mom already found out that I had stopped eating for a while so now she keeps a close eye on me and makes me eat. I thought purging would be perfect since I would still be eating, just not gaining any weight from it. What would be the best way to make sure she doesn't find out? My goal weight is 99 lbs, i'm 118 ish right now. I don't want to gain any more weight! About how long does it take for the wight loss to kick in and what are all the bad side-effects? Please contact me at:firstname.lastname@example.orgThanks so much! :)
hi i am very fat nearly size 16 i need help my mindset is very proana but i by myself dont have enough willpower to stop eating, i started purging lost a bit of weight but i need someone to emind me everyday about the positives of not eating, pls help lets be penpals olivia my mail is email@example.com
To the pregnant woman on July 26: To lessen the pain of vomiting, be sure to bend over from the waist, keeping your legs straight. This way your stomach is above your mouth, and you won't have to heave as hard. Also, try having someone hold a cold washcloth to your forehead. Worked wonders when I was sick as a child. Maybe try eating something cold and basic (i.e not acidic) afterward, like ice cream.
Hi, I'm 25 years old, and here's my story. I started purging at 14, and was inpatient at Remuda after a year and a half of bulimia. I stopped purging after that, but I never stopped eating for comfort. I've always been "thick" and curvy--5'3, around 135, 32E, 28 waist, 40 hips. My boyfriend thinks I am so sexy, but for some reason I still just want to look like a skinny 14 year-old. And I hate not being able to wear trendy clothes; I have no idea how to dress this body. So recently I started restricting. I suck at restricting; I end up losing control when I eat at least once a day. So then I added in purging. This time I am better at it. But I am also terrified that I won't be able to stop, that it will become an addiction like it was before. I would so much rather just diet my way down, or realize that I do have an attractive body (to men at least) and give up on wanting to look like a young girl. I don't know why I don't want to look like an adult. I never got to be young and skinny in high school. I hate all of this. I hate that I spend my brain power thinking about all of this, instead of going out in the world and helping people and focusing on being a good, positive person. I don't know how I got to this place. Should I keep going, risk it, and stop once I lose the weight? Or should I set a strict rule for myself while I still can and never do it again? Who knows which way I will go.
Does purging really get rid of the calories? And how much calories do they get out of? Is there a timing that you have to get it out by so that the calories wont be absorbed?
I've got braces and i'm really worried i'm going to get white marks on my teeth from purging,and that my orthodontist is going to notice. is there anyway to stop it from eroding my teeth?
Im new to this whole thing. I was anorexic last year, but was forced to gain weight. I am currently 18 years old 5ft 7inches and weigh 135 lbs. I can't really restrict anymore being that I just started college and my friends would notice. But I am really stressed out and depressed and just need to get everything out. Are you supposed to leave your fingers in your mouth even when your throwing up? Because when I start throwing up I always take my fingers out, and then I stop. How can I get everything up all in one try? and I am looking for a ana/mia buddy. email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm looking for someone (preferably in the UK then can text maybe?) to be my pro mia/ana buddy. My eating and relationship with food has been a bit rocky the last few months, I try not to eat a lot, started trying to purge & getting nowhere. Anyone willing to help or offer advice please email at email@example.comThanks
i just purged for the first time ever like an hour ago and i felt amazing after..i used to be team Ana but then i started just binging and i gained like 100lbs..yeah..gross..so i am trying to starve but its so hard to not eat after id been eating whatever i wanted whenever i wanted so i want to start purging after slip ups so help..it took me awhile to purge the first time and i only got a little bit out because i didnt want my sister to hear..anyone tried the water and salt rock thing? does it work? i need something that will make me throw up without my fingers because i gag too much and someone could hear :/
Hi, i have been anorexic and bulimic since i was 9, i am 24 now.I started purging when i was 11, because my mom took me to a doctor since i was so underweight and the doctor told her i am probably anorexic and asked her all about my eating habits then she realized how she barely sees me eat and how i exercise a lot so they first put me in a hospital where i gained 15 pounds and when i came home mom was supervising every meal i had, here is when i switched to bulimia. At the beginning i couldnt make myself throw up, i gagged, i just spit out cause no food came up, it lasted for a few weeks i tried every day, twice i hurt my throat cause blood just came running from my mouth and i freaked out, i didnt try for a week then i did it again and blood again. I think with some people it takes time and body needs to get used of it. Sometimes really nothing else helps. At 14 i became anorexic again and went until i was 19 (tho i still would throw up but not that often and not nearly as much food). Now (i stand next to the bathtub and throw up there to see exact foods that come out and cause i dont want to do it in toilet) i will be standing but will put my head lower than my stomach is, for some reason it makes it a lot easier, i will have a litter of water right before i throw up, then i use toothbrush but i dont use the end of it, i use the brush cause it tickles and for me works better, and food will just come running out even through my nose, when i dont get anything more up, i drink 0.5 litter of water and wait 5-10 mins and working out at that time, then i go back and try again and it will always come more food up. Usually twice is enough, but by now i somehow feel if its all gone or not, if i am not sure and i dont see my marker which is red bell pepper, big pieces of it swallowed, then i try again. It is easy now, but i still remember how horrible it was in the beginning. Sometimes my body will force me to throw up, like if i eat pizza i feel so sick (my body doesnt digest all foods anymore) and in less than 30 mins i will throw it up, if i drink a lot after eating it i throw up immediately without doing anything. I dont use laxatives anymore, there are a few reasons for that, 6 years agoi took entire box of very strong laxatives, i didnt need to use the toilet because it made me throw up all night long. i was literally sitting on the balcony and throw up down on the grass cause i had no strenght to get up anymore, i felt i will throw up all my organs, when i had nothing to throw up anymore i started throwing up green liquid that i dont have any idea what it was. then exactly a week later my best friend died of brain aneurysm. She was such a happy girl, she was pretty overweight but happy with her body and loved life so much and enjoyed it, and i was thin but spending night on the balcony (and it was freezing cold and i was there for like 6 hours) throwing up what i ate... i felt so guilty. especially cause before that i tried to commit suicide twice. The guilt never went away and since then i never took a single laxative. I connect them with her death and cant do it.i started reading comments here since beginning so i havent read all yet i just felt the urge to write something before i continue. i need to talk about it, but i cant with anyone in my real life. would anyone like to talk to me about it, like helping eachother out? if so you can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org I THINK WE ALL SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE PERSON TO TALK TO AND ASK FOR ADVICES, this blog is great but getting close to a certain someone would help us even more.
Hi guys. I started purging a couple of months but now it's getting harder and harder. If I force my body I can still get it all out but then I have a muscle ache in my back area and in my genital are muscles. It's the same muscle ache that you get from a workout but it happened because I forced my body to purge everything. Has anyone experienced this?Thx
I watch my calories and what I eat, but somehow I can't lose weight. Tonight I had a very large meal. I was so uncomfortable that I could not wait to throw it up. I am wondering if this will be a better way to lose weight. I am at my highest weight ever 164 this morning. It makes me hate myself and hate looking in the mirror and hate sex. I just want to be back where I was like 145-150. HELP
Hi guys. So I was just wondering, what made you want to be anorexic/bulimic?
I've been purging for 6 years. Had no trouble but just recently I can't. My stomach just hold everything in. Any tips or suggestions to get it to come up without using fingers?
I tried purging for the first time this week, i dont enjoy it but i just feel its the only quick way. Anyway, when i'd done it i felt weak at the knees, dizzy/faint, had a really sore throat and felt like id been repeatedly kicked in the stomach/ribs. does it get any easier?
I am soooooooo desperate to purge... HELP!!!!Though I heard that drinking warm water with bicarbonate of soda makes you throw up but you have to trick your body into thinking your ill. ALWAYS stand up as this helps BUT leaning over does help quite a bit.Or just drink 8 glasses of warm water non stop ( though I always struggle on the third glass) Hope this helps...KEEP POSTING!!!!!!!
I strongly suggest this idea, it works. (with the perk of not being heard)
It kind of depends on you. What you eat, when you eat it & how you do it all... I had to put up with bringing up a little as well, but after a while, you can get a lot to come up. It's easier if you do it while standing up, because when you're kneeling, you're bent in half, & that means your organs move with you.
