How bodybuilding helped me overcome bulimia.

Before we begin, I’d like to start by saying that my own experiences may be different to yours. The cause of your eating disorder may be entirely different and my solution may not be right for you. The only cure for any eating disorder is being comfortable in your own skin.
This is just my experience that I'm sharing in the hope that it may help someone.


Before I go into how my eating disorder began and how my relationship with food got out of hand I should go into what I think was the root cause.

I feel as though mine came from a sense of narcissism. I was always the beloved child in my family. I was witty and a charming and so I received a lot of love from everyone. 

Narcissism sounds like a lot of fun. Who wouldn't want to have boundless love for themselves?

But self-love doesn't really describe narcissism. Narcism is having a deluded idea of your own self-worth. Overestimating your self-worth means that you don't believe that you receive the recognition or respect you deserve and in reality it is a very sad an debilitating condition. Everyone understands what it feels like to be knocked down a peg. When you're a narcissist, you feel every insult is much much worse because a minor comment in passing can feel like being knocked down several pegs.

I was always a chubby child and by the age of 15 I topped out at 250 lbs. I was bullied for it. This is fairly common and is a part of childhood/ teen-age so I don't blame those kids for being mean. That is a learning curve. We all did terrible things when we were children.

But years of feeling rejected and insulted as a teenager compounded. All of this was exacerbated by my delusion of self-worth made me into a recluse.

This is when bulimia started.

Bulimia is eating excessively, with the guilt of overeating stimulating an urge to vomit.

To begin with, I began dieting rigorously for 1 year. I lost 40lbs of fat. I was extremely strict, relying on a diet of lean protein. I was a teenager so I didn't understand the value of nutrients and fibre and vegetables.

One day I was given a portion of chips. I ate it. I, without any thinking, went to the toilet and purged it. Eventually, I began to do this with my regular healthy diet.

I realised soon that I could eat badly and get away with it by purging. It was like finding a cheat code which allowed me to eat more, enjoy food, and lose weight at the same time.

I shrunk to 150 lbs over 10 years

If there are any Bulimia sufferers and recoverers reading, they will know that sugary foods are hard to vomit because of how they are digested. I realise that it was probably these carbs that were keeping me alive because otherwise, I would have been on a zero-calorie diet.

I was left with a skinny frame but, because of the huge reliance on sugar, I was left with massive amounts of stubborn fat on my midsection. In my own eyes, this was so unsightly and so I purged harder than ever.

Eventually, I began losing teeth and my hair began to fall out. I was truly miserable. I had no confidence with women, friends or at work because I loathed my body.

This cycle went on for 10 years. I had no understanding of nutrition and exercise and mostly I was too lethargic to exercise.

In 2008 I picked up my first weight. In honestly it was no reason other than to improve my body that I began to train. I was sick of being skinny-fat.

It was with training with which I fell in love. I enjoyed the mindless act of repetitively pushing and pulling a barbell. It was incredibly freeing.

After studying I learned that I would need to eat to get a good workout. I read about slow burning carbs such as brown rice and sweet potatoes would improve the effectiveness of my workout.

Thus, I implemented a pre workout meal to serve the purpose of maximising my workout. It was For the first time in years and years that I ate something where I didn't feel guilty.

I read that muscle growth depended on proteins. I researched tirelessly and invested in protein powders and lean chicken, beef and fish. I read that saturated fats could regulate my testosterone.

I would be tempted to eat a whole cake or a quart of ice- cream after one of my meals but I was dissuaded by the idea that throwing it up after would ruin the balance of proteins, carbs and fats that were also in my stomach.

Over time I redeveloped a new relationship with food where I ate to maximise my workouts, increase strength, improve recovery and avoid aches and pains.

I did not stop purging cold-turkey but my guilt for wasting my food and nutrients replaced my guilt I felt for overeating.

I’m not sure I’m cured entirely of body dysmorphia. Bodybuilding is an image conscious sport and it is well documented that bodybuilders put harmful substances in their bodies to improve their bodies however, it did change my attitude and relationship with food.
After a few years, bodybuilding had me become more healthy, strong and I cleared the pre-diabetes symptoms that I noticed.

As I grew older, I learned about narcissism, and I worked to solve these issues.

I knew I was cured when I was able to bulk effectively. I didn't worry about the fat I was gaining as I bulked because I knew I was doing it for a reason, working towards a goal.

I can't say I’m completely happy with my body but I am a million times happier and healthier.

In my experience, I found that dedicating yourself to a goal that is counter intuitive to an eating disorder is an effective cure

A friend of mine overcame her anorexia by setting a goal to fight as a Welterweight boxer. She turned her focus away from food and her body and made reaching that goal her obsession. She saw training and food as accessories to reaching her goal and as a result, is a healthy, athletic and, most importantly has a healthy relationship with food.

Setting a tangible goal is the way forward.

Hope this helps :)

The most common reason that people cite for dieting today is weight loss. While most of us would love to claim the noble mantle of dieting for health the vast majority of us are doing so for vanity. This, however, is a perfectly acceptable and plausible reason for making the lifestyle changes that are necessary in order to diet. In fact, this reason might prove to be a far greater motivator than many of the other commonly stated reasons for dieting.

Re: Fatigue — It's been about three years of waking up fatigued,headaches,sore joints and muscles. Also having morning sickness,my joints will stick, like fingers. Somedays it's hard to walk and it's best to warm my self up for about thirty min before I try stairs or climbing. Have had several test sed rate shows inflammation. Also have had trouble with female organs since fourteen, Had them removed six mo. ago.

Re: Positive self-talk — Whenever I think I might be gaining a little extra I don't want, I try not to over-worry and just think "I could lose it if I really want to," when the time is right. And I know it's true now.

zallers
Re: Positive self-talk — Every time I look in the mirror I tell myself I'm beautiful or find a positive for every negative. I've coached my boyfriend into expressing this more too! Everytime I walk into an unknown area, I just pretend I'm the most beautiful person there (even if it's far from the truth), and it really gives me a boost. I also remind myself that I don't typically judge people for the way they look, so why should I think others do anything different.

zallers
Re: Massage — Surprisingly this really makes a big difference for me. It really helped me to exchange one kind of pleasure (overeating/bad foods) for a different kind of pleasure- massage.

zallers
Re: Keeping a food diary — I did feel a little OCD at times tracking every little calorie that went in my body for a month. Although it was very tedious, it really helped me manage my weight and stick to my goals.

zallers
Re: Headache — I get headaches regardless, but they are definitely worse when I'm not eating enough due to diets or inadvertently missing meals.

zallers
Re: Amenorrhea (no periods) — I don't know if my missed periods had anything to do with weight or eating. But I was definitely told that without enough body fat, women don't produce enough estrogen and can cause missed periods. I was a bit underweight, but nothing abnormal for myself at the time. Gaining weight along with other approaches, did eventually help me get my periods back. Extreme dieting can also stop your cycle because your body goes into a conservation and stress-mode which turns your pregnenolone (precurser to progesterone and estradiol) into cortisol instead (stress-management hormone).

zallers
Re: Low blood sugar — When I was dieting, I tried at first to stay under 1000 calories a day and no more than 25g fat. Although I lost a lot of weight, I can't say it was healthy because I was a bit faint from my blood sugar being too low. I eventually bumped it up to 1500 calories a day and did much better.

zallers
Re: Distorted view of body weight — I gained 10 lbs for the first time in my life and became overly paranoid that I was fat for months. In reality, I was still probably underweight... just that much more healthy. It's taken a long time to accept my new healthy curves.

zallers
Re: Binge eating — I read research that for some people eating refined carbohydrates/sugars can cause your appetite to go up. I've definitely experienced this and it causes me to binge eat at times. Unfortunately I'm also prone to it after strict dieting. Refined carbohydrates/sugars can also spike insulin in some people which lowers blood sugar too quickly continuing the feeling of hunger and cycle for quick-fix energy.

acc
Re: Talk therapy — Talking through feelings about food, examples I had growing up, obsessive thoughts, helps to make my mind a less scary place and make healthy attitudes toward eating possible.

acc
Re: Tai Chi — Tai chi just helps me feel so good about myself that I temporarily forget about eating - what a wonderful relief.

acc
Re: Distorted view of body weight — A few months ago, I estimated my weight at 140 pounds, then stepped on a scale to discover I weighted 118 pounds - a fairly large distortion. I guess I don't have a reference for what people actually weigh and would love to be able to compare myself more accurately with others.

acc
Re: Intense fear of weight gain — This is a big one. I sometimes have phases where I feel like if I eat anything I will become obese. In my family growing up, being fat = being criticized. I'm still working on loving myself no matter what my size and decreasing the fear of gaining.

acc
Re: Amenorrhea (no periods) — At my lowest weight, 110 pounds, I stopped cycling. My cycle came back when I gained back up to 125 pounds.

farenflora
Re: Sleep and food schedule — Getting exactly 8hrs of sleep almost every night, going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, and trying to eat at the same time every day, helped me manage my nutrition and health better. I also tried to setup patterns with other family memeber so we wouldn't consistently end up eating too late at night.

farenflora
Re: Strict grocery list — Only allowing healthy foods into the house made a big difference in my diet, nutrition, and self-control. Make it easy to eat good things, and hard to eat the bad things.

farenflora
Re: Nutrient/food tracking — Ensuring that I get the right amount of protein and healthy fats every day through tracking made a big difference in my food choice and frequency of eating.
