Why Dehydration Can Cause Sudden Weight Gain in Recovery

Bulimia and dehydration are BFF's. They pretty much always hang out together... And when I was suffering from bulimia, it was no different...

  • Dry skin, lips and hair
  • Dizziness and a fuzzy mind
  • Dark colored urine

Just to name a few.
