The Truth About Bulimia

By: Ksana Vera

Un-recovered Bulimics do not understand or know the truth concerning bulimia. Contrary to the common misconception, vomiting does not control weight loss. Ok, so then what really happens? The truth is that the body adapts to the situation in which it finds itself.

Since a body needs the nutrients provided by foods and is deprived of those, it begins to react by retaining the food longer in the stomach. The body then begins to start digestion higher than normal in the gastrointestinal tract. Bulimics throw up the foods they ate more than 24 hours before, while the stomach naturally empties in about two hours. It is a proven fact that even after vomiting, the food eaten previously will still be there.

It is important to learn of the more healthful ways of weight control. A body naturally needs and anticipates three regular meals a day to curb hunger. Therefore, instead of being fed the body naturally protects itself by producing fat when its metabolism has been slowed down by not receiving the nutrition it needs. This means, the body literally begins to eat itself to survive.

Bulimics need to understand that only they can control the way their body looks by eating well and exercising it daily.

Sounds like something a mother would say, right? Well, trust me, my system offers three meals and two snacks that are enjoyable as well as offering the tips and know how to stay on track of creating a personal healthy menu.

The energy boost that sports provide is comparable to one other thing only and that is the feeling of being in love. Perhaps you have heard about the running high. This feeling is caused by the production of one of the chemicals that the brain produces while it is being exercised. This feeling can only be achieved through sports.

Some studies have proven the possibility that you brain will change by the strong influence of regular exercise. Blood flow to certain areas of the brain is the influencing foundations of these changes during activities.

The most influential motivation of performing basic exercises is the production of a certain brain chemical that causes you to feel on top of the world are called endorphins.
It is believed that endorphins produce four special effects on the mind and body, which are an enhancement of the immune system, pain relief, and reduction of stress as well as postponing the process of aging. It is called by many names such as a runner high, the euphoric state that is trancelike and the body opium like tranquilizers. It is a fact that regular exercising does strengthen the body as well as keeps weight controlled. Exercise provides more energy and the activity of sports improves the memory.
