Rarity for me. Mostly just exercise and calorie restrict. But today I ate a whole box of Nature Valley bars. I saw myself doing it but just kept eating. Thinking, this isn’t good and its too late in day to work off these calories. As i sat down to do some sit ups, I just thought i have to purge. So I did.

Hi bippie, trouble with getting rid of the food like that is you'll want more later? Sorry you felt like this. My binges have got less since giving up purging and over exercising. I still find chocolate hard to resist.

Be careful Bippie. Long term purging can cause all sorts of damage. Due to the acid it creates. I now how stomach erosion that needs daily medication and dental problems.

Its so very rare for me. I think its stress induced. I can go years 5+ without doing it. Absolutely zero desire to revisit. But, true to form.. i’m Very tired today. Zaps my energy.

I have always eaten restricting my calories,
Even not eating much when under stress I purge which I havnt done for ages its just a reflection of how I'm feeling
