... Def. sounds like digestive problems, pretty normal after ed. I would do a detox, cut out anything harsh on your digestive system. Chances are your gut is rejecting a lot of foods ie. nuts, wheat, diary... Look up the GAPS diet. This should heal your gut. Be patient, it takes time. Also: get a good quality probiotic. (3 replies)

... Hi, What you are saying def. does sound like Disordered Eating because you restrict and then feel sick afterwards. Whereas a person with an eating disorder, we, have a fear of food; distorted body image; isolate; have a preoccupation with food-obssesional thoughts; low weights which cause physical and mental symptoms etc. It's hard to suggest if it is a full blown eating...

... Hi again I know you weren't looking for a diagnosis on the boards..I just wanted to make sure you didn't take any advice you got on here to mean a "medical opinion" or dignosis (I'm sure you wouldn't! but I have seen a few people on here who take all the advice they get literally). What kinds of docs have you been to? Specialists?? A good doc could tell the difference... (12 replies)
