Don’t throw up your food, it is so bad for you.

It takes -3500 calories to loose a pound, which means you need to both burn calories by working out & take less calories in by eating in order to loose weight.

Eat fruits & veggies of course. It’s typical to eat a small breakfast and a big dinner, but my health teacher said you actually want to do the opposite. And never skip breakfast, it helps you loose weight. I stopped driking pop and lost 50 pounds in 1 year!! Don’t drink juice. You’d think fruit juice is good for you, but its not. It has alot of sugar and extra calories. People say dont eat carbs’ not true, 60% of your diet is suposed to be from some type of carbs… just make sure you eat whole grain or whole wheat bread. And drink only skim milk, all others arent so great for you. Just watch what you eat and pay attention to nutrition labels!

Make sure you do some weight bearing activities along with cardio, it’ll help build muscle and burn fat! If you cant buy a gym membership try going for a walk or run ourside, doing jumping jacks, jump rope, running up & down your stairs, lifting weights, doings situps & pushups.. those are just some ideas that’ll help!

CBT for Eating Disorders: Conceptualization of Bulimia – Something I forgot to mention – it is because self-induced vomiting only retrieves half of the calories consumed than individuals diagnosed with bulimia tend to be of normal weight or even overweight. If you eat only 600 calories during the day, but then have a 3000 calorie binge and purge at night, you are not consuming 600 calories, as you might think. Your total calorie intake would be more like 600 + 3000/2 = 2100, This may not be much different from what you would be consuming if you were following a normal meal plan.
