In 1944 a famous physiologist Ancel Keys conducted a large study that proved every single behavior we associate with bulimia nervosa can be accounted for by a restrictive diet.
The results showed that "many of the symptoms that might have been thought to be specific to anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are actually the results of starvation (pirke & ploog, 1987)."
Simply put, research has shown that a restrictive diet can lead to every single symptom of bulimia.
It's a little known FACT but for the vast majority of bulimics their eating disorder has nothing to do with their past, upbringing or genetics. They simply went on a restrictive diet which spiraled into the dark world of an eating disorder.
Here are the steps:
"Getting rid of dieting could wipe out at least 70% of eating disorders. Get rid of dieting!"
Dr Adrienne Key (Royal College of Psychiatrists).
A restrictive diet deprives your body of essential nutrients and this leads to side-effects such as:
Intense binge urges & cravings for foods rich in sugar and fats
An insatiable appetite & food obsession
Psychological problems such anxiety and depression.
The urge to binge is much stronger than your willpower to resist. This leads to regular bingeing on food.
Panic and a fear of gaining weight from the continual bingeing leads you to try out purging. This could be self-induced vomiting, laxatives, diet pills or further food restriction .
Purging, restricting and not eating enough food keeps you in a permanent malnourished state. This makes the binge urge stronger. This leads to more bingeing, and therefore more purging. You are now trapped in the binge/purge cycle of bulimia nervosa.
Having bulimia certainly makes you feel like you're losing your mind. But we are happy to tell you that chances are, you are not "crazy" and bulimia is not your nor your parents fault.
Large-scale studies from Harvard and Oxford universities have shown that people on restrictive diets can significantly deplete their serotonin levels within three weeks.
As the brain continues to be starved this leads to psychological problems such as: obsessive and compulsive behavior, distorted body image, depression, anxiety, general moodiness and poor motivation.
The really great news is that in recovery 100% of the psychological symptoms can be reversed.
If the answer is yes, that's good news.
A restrictive diet is responsible for trapping you into the "binge/purge cycle" of bulimia.
To escape from the "binge/purge cycle" and recover from bulimia you need to undo the damage of a restrictive diet. If you are not sure how to do this, don't worry, we can help you.

"There is much helpful, practical, and inspirational advice in this program, which is all backed by thorough research and the experience of thousands of recovered bulimics."
Hi, my name is Richard Kerr,
Back in 2006 my wife Ali confessed to me that she had secretly struggled with bulimia for over ten years. I felt shocked, confused and concerned. All I knew was that I loved her and would stop at nothing to help her.
But real help was impossible to find. Everywhere we turned people treated Ali as though she was mentally ill and told us recovery would be a "life-long battle."
Frustrated, I took matters into my own hands and spent 15 months researching testing and questioning everything that was known about bulimia nervosa.
I discovered bulimia has a LOT to do with food. The mind body connection is profound. If you are not feeding your body the nutrition it needs your mind will suffer. Heal the body and you heal the mind.
This knowledge became the foundation of our recovery program and Ali quickly made a full recovery. Inspired by its success, I decided to share the program with the world.
Since then I am delighted to say the Bulimia Help Method:
Has helped over 10,000 sufferers
Has grown to be the webs largest bulimia recovery program
Is recommended by experts, doctors and eating disorder charities around the world.
It's exciting times for us and this is only the beginning. Word is begining to spread of a new simpler way to recover from bulimia that really works.
We asked our members: "How Much Has The Bulimia Help Method Helped You?"
Here is what they said:
Here is what they said:
It's simple and makes so much sense.
It gave me such peace and clarity.
It taught me strategies to overcome bulimia that I would have never known.
Bulimia Help gave me the tools to challenge my own fear, the information to take that first step, and a safe place to come whenever I fell.
I love the connection and support of people going through the same thing I was. I was desperate for someone to relate to and seeing all these people with the same issue lifted a huge weight.
Here is what they said:
I have not put on any weight, I have rediscovered spontaneity and I feel like I have gained so much freedom. I still can’t believe how much my life has changed for the better. My life at the moment is more ‘normal’ than it has been at any point in my memory.”
I paint, play with my dog, go hiking, play basketball. These are all things I felt too tired to do before and now I feel energetic and look forward to doing them.
I've never felt so calm and in control around food. I eat when I feel like it and until I am full. Some days it's more and some it's less. I really never believed that recovery is possible and I am still surprising myself every day with how much happier and healthy I feel."
My life and happiness is no longer ruled by a number on a scale. In fact, I threw my scales out long ago!
It has only been three months, but the best three months of my life, as i start to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. No amount of psychiatry, doctor, group, inpatient or outpatient 'help' has ever given me this belief and strength and b/p free days.
Bulimia and restrictive eating makes you malnourished and this leads to powerful binge urges. You may have been living like this for years and your body has forgotten how to respond normally to food.
In this phase you will:
Start to process and be satisfied with normal portions of food.
Boost your metabolism & restore nutritional requirements.
Massively reduce your binge urges and cravings.
If you have had bulimia for a long time you may be relying on it for emotional support. This is a strong desire to eat food not for hunger but to dull the thought process and numb any emotional pain.
In this phase you will:
Process uncomfortable thoughts & emotions without bingeing.
Extinguish the last of your binge urges.
Build your confidence and boost your self-esteem.
For total recovery for life we need to learn new and healthier food skills so we don't fall back on old destructive habits.
In this phase you will:
Stop relying on calories, food plans and food rules.
Develop a lifelong healthy relationship with food.
Learn skills to easily maintain a healthy weight for life.

Will my weight spiral out of control in recovery?
Definitely not. Many people with bulimia are already 1-2lbs within their normal weight range. This is the weight they would be if they didn't have bulimia and the weight they are likely to maintain after recovery. For others bulimia causes weight gain, so people find they are heavier than their pre-bulimia weight (Garner et al. 1985, p. 539). Under these circumstances people generally lose weight and maintain their lower weight following recovery.
How will I know when I am recovered?
Put simply, you will know when you are recovered from bulimia because you will no longer crave or desire to binge on food.
How long does recovery take?
Although everyone is different, in general it takes around 6 months for the binge urges to disappear and a further 6 months to rebuild your confidence around food. Many feel as though they are fully recovered around the 12-18 month mark. If this feels like a long time, please do not feel disheartened as you will start to notice the benefits of recovery almost immediately.
