Bulimia bloating is what hindered my bulimia recovery process. I have been bulimic for well over a decade. So when I made the decision to recover, my digestive system was not making it easy for me to follow through.
I was so devastated with the bulimia bloating that I felt depressed and alone. I hid in my apartment lying in bed all day and night hoping to sleep as much as I could to forget how disgusting I felt.
I used laxatives, but that was only a temporary relief and being honest it really didn't get rid of the bloat.
I stopped the laxatives and decided that my body was going to have to pull itself together one way or another and of course I was constipated for nearly 2 weeks! I looked 6 months pregnant.
I called off of work weekly because I felt I looked disgusting.
Please don't disregard this post, It really has helped me tremendously and has helped my bulimia recovery process.
Here is a brief description of how to speed up the bulimia bloating recovery...
One last thing, I found these tortillas at the grocery store, they're 12 grams of fiber, 80 calories per tortilla, 5g carbs, I snack on one every day. I'll eat one with my greek yogurt.
This daily routine has helped my bulimic bloat so much! Please try it for a few weeks and let me know if it has helped!
Hi Karla! Thank you so much for sharing those helpful tips with our recovering community! I know they will go a long way to help people :)
I definitely think the healthy bacteria food is essential in recovery... The tummy has a lot of work to do to get back to it's pre-bulimia days! Kefir is a great probiotic - and tasty too! Some of the girls my private online Bulimia Recovery Program and Community have commented that taking probiotics and digestive enzymes helped them a lot in their recovery.
Bulimia bloating is definitely one of the toughest challenges for most people in recovery! But just as you are doing... It is possible to push through it!
