Leaving the house after eating - a sign of bulimia
I'm bulimic and when I lived at home with my parents I used to say that I was going on a 5 minute walk (this was within 10 minutes after eating) to help my food digest and to have a cigarette.
I would walk up the road to this small wood behind the park and throw up in there. Then, I'd walk back home.
So if someone tries to leave the house for short periods of time then this could be a sign of purging.
My parents saw this as normal behavior for me so never really questioned it.
