Throwing up your food purposely, whether it be once a week, or after every meal, is definitely an eating disorder, no matter which way you look at it. Although it may seem to be helping you lose weight or tone your figure, it is damaging your body even though it is not truly visible. Every time you vomit, it streigns your stomach, and you create unhealthy acids that come up. So not only are you burning a hole through you stomach, you are rotting your teeth. This will mean, if you keep doing this once a week, within ten years at least, you will have lost a fair amount of teeth, and there is a high chance of death. So although you may look hot right now, think of a teethless, woman/man looking 60 in her/his thirties, in her/his death bed wishing you had only learned to love your body, instead of wasting it because tabloids say you have to. Everyone has flaws, but has a special unique beauty, that is inimitable. Be proud of your body, and if you can't, I would suggest seeking help. Unfortunately, that's how it starts. It's a good idea to get some help before it goes too far.

Is anorexia and bulimia a disease or a psychological disorder?

It is both a disease and a psychological disorder. If a person has anorexia, it doesn't necessary mean that the person needs to be horribly skinny. the person could be overweight also but has eating disorders and bulimia is were you eat up to and sometimes over 10,000 calories at once and then throw up purposely. Sometimes, bulimic people take pills to throw up. This is life-threatening, so do not attempt it to lose weight.

You want to become bulimic how do you start?

What I did was be anorexic for a while, which is not eating. Then I get hungry and I eat, then once I'm alone (you don't want people to hear/see you throw up) I rest my finger on the back of my throat and massage it and keep gaging til food comes out. It takes plenty of time for a first timer. Then have sex

Are you bulimic if you threw up on the first day of a diet because you felt guilty for eating fattening food?

I am bulimic and if you throw up the food on the first day of the diet purposely, you should be careful because this may be the first step to becoming bulimic. If you keep overeating and then feeling that you should throw up the food it will become a habit. Misery loves company so don't listen to anyone who tells you that they prefer purging their food as a quick weight loss! By making yourself purge (vomiting) your stomach is a muscle and once it gets use to this then it won't be able to stop and you're in big trouble. Diets do work! People who say they don't are lazy or impatient. Two good diets are 'The South Beach Diet' and 'Weight Watchers.' I prefer Weight Watchers because it's not really a diet, but teaching you corrective eating habits. It's not bad at all and I've been on it a couple of times and go back for 'tune-ups' after the winter months to shed a few pounds. There is lots of encouragement, you can eat just about anything, but the secret is the quantity you eat. Be smart and do it right! No, not bulimic. A lot of people do this on diets, as long as you don't keep doing it often you wont develop an eating disorder. EDs are however not so much about the behaviors as the thought process behind them. for example someone who wants to lose weight for prom or bikini season may starve themselves or stop eating to lose the weight but if they have a general like for themselves and their body then they are not eating disordered in this case its just a diet. == == I think the term "bulimic" is thrown around too much. merely throwing up food does not mean you are bulimic, according to http://www.pale-reflections.com/diagnostic.asp bulimia is characterised by: " A. Recurrent episodes of binge eating. An episode of binge eating is characterized by both of the following: # eating, in a discrete period of time (e.g., within any 2-hour period), an amount of food that is definitely larger than most people would eat during a similar period of time and under similar circumstances # a sense of lack of control over eating during the episode (e.g., a feeling that one cannot stop eating or control what or how much one is eating) B. Recurrent inappropriate compensatory behavior in order to prevent weight gain, such as self-induced vomiting; misuse of laxatives, diuretics, enemas, or other medications; fasting; or excessive exercise. C. The binge eating and inappropriate compensatory behaviors both occur, on average, at least twice a week for 3 months. D. Self-evaluation is unduly influenced by body shape and weight. E. The disturbance does not occur exclusively during episodes of Anorexia Nervosa. now, the fact that you threw up your food is a worrying sign of a bad relationship with food, but it mayn't develop into an eating disorder. It is not normal to throw up after eating, but, the above poster was correct in saying that if you should happen to vomit after eating without making yourself purge then you are not necessarily a bulimic. If you do rush off to the washroom to purge your food after eating because you admitted you felt guilty this is a road to being bulimic.

If a person throws up fattening foods and not healthy foods or if they don't actually go on a huge binge does this mean that they are not bulimic?

A healthy person does not throw up their food. Please talk to a family member or friend and get them to help you or get some help for you... this is a serious problem. Your stomach is a muscle and if you continue to purge no matter if it's just fat foods your stomach will get use to it and will convulse! There are good fats out there, so read labels and don't be afraid to "pig out" once on a weekend and then get back into eating properly again rather than purging.


Two fair dice are each numbered so that they have the numbers 1 3 5 7 9 and 11 how many ways are there of scoring a total of 16?

5 + 11 11 + 5 7 + 9 9 + 7 So 4 ways if you are allowed to throw each die only once. But the question did not state that assumption; so the additional ways are: Throw die #1 16 times and get 1 each time. Throw die #2 16 times and get 1 each time. Throw die # 1 13 times and get 1 13 times and 3 once. Throw die # 2 13 times and get 1 13 times and 3 once. Throw die #1 13 times and get 1 each time, then throw die # 2 once and get 3. Throw die #1 12 times and get 1 each time, then throw die #2 once and get 3, then throw die #1 again and get another 1. You get the idea, figure out the rest yourself.

How long does it take food to digest before you can throw it up?

It doesn't take long before you can throw something up. For example, have you ever accidentally drank rotten milk? It taste disgusting, right? Well, after you drink it, you can tell that it's rotten. Once it hits your digestive system, you're body is ready to break down nutrients and vitamins in the food. But since it's rotten, there is nothing good in it for you, so your body rejects it and starts to push it out. And that is how long it takes for you to throw up.
