Signs Of Bulimia
There are many signs of
bulimia which you could easily spot out.
After living a bulimic
lifestyle for a while in my teen years,
it is easy for me to
identify, and help other bulimics.You Could Spot these Signs:
-Frequent use of the toilet or shower
-Frail looks as a result of weakness
-Weakness is caused by overeating, binging and vomiting
-Check the victim's knuckles for signs of finger insertion
to force a vomit.
-The smell of vomit which they try to cover with the use
of mint or breath sprays
-Regular use of enemas, diuretics or laxatives
-Compulsive vigorous exercise regimen
-Eating and overeating,
binging, within a short span.
-Eating to almost a
-Hiding foods at special
secret corners to binge on later
-Preference to secret
eating, avoiding eating with family
and friends as much as possible
-When you see the empty food wrappers you actually
wonder when they were consumed
-Cheek puffiness and mouth sores due to excessive vomiting
-Dental issues caused by stomach acids brought up by vomiting
-Excessive weight fluctuation
-Love for isolation
-Obsession with weight issues and food calories.
The concern about food calories is not to know
what foods to avoid eating and binging on.
Rather, it is to know how fast they must
get rid of the foods after eating.
-Anxiety, depression, shame and irritability
are found in many bulimics
-A negative body image and very poor self-esteem are also present.
With these, you'd easily spot a bulimic

to bring them out of the dangers of this eating disorder
that they face daily.
