Our team regularly posts blogs on all aspects of bulimia, sharing our particular insights and inspiring recovery.


Take a look at the relationship between bulimia and endorphin release and discover 10 healthy ways to boost those natural feel-good chemicals during recovery.





After suffering from bulimia for almost 11 years it took me 15 months to recover using The Bulimia Help Method. To me those 15 months were a small price to pay for life long freedom, but I do understand that thinking about the time it will take to recover can be intimidating, especially if you're just starting out. So today we're going to take a look at the importance of "bigger picture thinking".





In this weeks special recovery article we take a look at the importance of reintroducing trigger foods in recovery and I share some great tips and advice on how to start eating all of those challenging, triggering, “unsafe” and “bad” foods again without relapsing!





Looking for some creative ways to make recovery-focused choices and decisions? Then come and check out this weeks special recovery article where we take a look at some interesting and unique recovery strategies that our members have successfully implemented in order to avoid relapsing during challenging situations.





This may seem like a strange topic, especially if you’re still in the early stages of recovery where you’re putting everything you have into making sure you remain mindful, cautious and “switched on” 24/7.

If someone would have told me at the start of my own bulimia recovery that I should be on guard for becoming overly confident or too relaxed I would have presumed they didn’t have a clue about recovery.

But now, being blessed with a lot of experience and so many recovery insights I can say without a doubt that complacency is something that can become very relevant in the later stages of recovery.

Becoming aware of complacency in recovery now could help you to avoid relapsing because of it in the future

It’s natural to want to let your guard down when recovery “get’s good.”

I remember when I was a few months into recovery, thanks to the support I'd received at Bulimia Help structured eating had actually become enjoyable, I was no longer experiencing powerful urges to binge or purge and although I occasionally thought about restricting, they were just thoughts that I knew I didn’t have to act on.

My weight was stable; I was able to appreciate myself for the first time; food was just food and nothing more and because of all of these wonderful changes I really started to feel free for the first time.
