Sometimes people turn bulimic because they’re overweight and are having trouble with other diets. Maybe they’re under a lot of stress, or maybe someone is making them feel bad about themselves. Bulimia sometimes goes on for years and is a very serious condition. By not keeping food down, the bulimic person is starving their body of nutrients. In extreme situations the bodys organs can start to shut down. In that case, the bulimic person most likely has to be hospitalized immediately or slowly starve to death.
Not necessarily – even if you are bulimic usually you binge and purge but you still eat and take in the calories of what your eating regardless if you purge. Bulimia is serious and does not always just involve being bulimic on its own they are also over obsessed with exercise and are also most time anorexic as well. It varies from individual to individual.
