What works for me - minimal fibre

by Julia
(Adelaide, Australia)

I've had bulimia for almost 10 years and have 'recovered' twice during this stage. What I noticed worked for me is to incorporate less fibrous foods in my meal plan. Everyone is different so it may not work for you. Major bloating and indigestible foods for me include: beans, apples, onions, soda, sugar, artificial sweetener... mainly any foods that have a lot of bulk in them. This is unfortunate as these are often my favorite foods.

Lots of natural unsweetened yogurt (up to 300-400gm per day) drinking diluted apple juice in the morning and a teaspoon of flaxseed (not the oil but the actual seeds - make sure you chew them well) daily always helps too. I need to get back into this regime because my tummy is not happy and this is the only thing that seems to work for me.

I hope this helps someone out there :)
