They lose so much weight that they get close to dying. If you want an exact amount of how much weight they lose, well that depends on the person and how often they do it.

Bulimics differ from anorexia in that bulimics binge and purge?

NoSome anorexics do binge and purge, but only tiny amounts and more consistently than bulimics.There are two main differences between anorexics and bulimics -Anorexics lose a significant amount of weight, and usually have an extremely low and unhealthy BMI. This disorder is characterised by excessive weight loss and a fear of putting on weight and getting fat. They are proud of their diets and how controlled they are regarding food.Bulimics on the other hand are not necessarily skinny; some are quite overweight, and others are in the normal weight range. They are ashamed by their purging activities and feel like their eating is uncontrollable.Both are equally dangerous disorders causing serious medical and psychological problems, and need to be treated by a physician or psychologist or psychiatrist

How much weight do you lose if your bulimic?

If you're asking because you're considering becoming bulimic, you should see someone and discuss it with a doctor or therapist or someone that can help. Eating disorders are very scary and can seriously damage your health and possibly kill you. That said, bulimics lose some weight but not nearly as much as anorexics because they're still taking food in. Some of the nutrients enter their body before being purged either through throwing up or the use of laxatives. Bulimics usually have rotting teeth from all the stomach acid they are throwing up. It's very much an eating disorder, but you don't lose nearly as much weight as a bulimic than you would as an anorexic. Again, if you are considering becoming one, please seek professional help.

Yes you can gain weight being bulimic. The hardcore bulimics who actually lose weight from being bulimic are the ones who are dying.

There is no shortcuts. Unless you can afford surgery but then you have to be able to risk it. EVERYONE i know who has had some type of weight loss surgery had severe complications.
