When recovering from bulimia it is important to follow a diet eating plan that will support you to stay on track.
Following the general rules of a Low GI eating plan is a great way to eat healthy and not put on weight.
Low GI eating is healing because it is a balanced and nutritious way of eating. It also is supportive in so many ways. Eating small regular intakes of food means that you never go hungry and you don’t overload the body and digestive system with too much food. Plus it keeps the blood sugar stable which wards off sweet tooth cravings and helps keep moods stable. When we eat low g.i. we feel stable and grounded. What’s more it’s easy!
Eating Low GI means eating a small meal or snack every 2½ to 3 hours throughout the day.
The emphasis is on non-processed foods, protein, veggies, fruit and unrefined carbs. Drink plenty of water, sip herbal teas and exercise. It is as simple as that!
Setting up a routine and sticking to it is the best way to go.
Get off to the right start with your bulimia recovery diet is important so working with a trained professional can make a huge difference.
Sharon Chinen is a university trained eating disorder counselling therapist. She has worked with hundreds of people over the last 10+ years helping them to finally break free of their bulimia habit.
While working towards recovering from bulimia it is helpful to plan your meals and snacks even up to a day in advance. As putting foot in a supermarket can trigger the need to buy binge foods, if you can, get parents, partners or friends on board helping to buy the food and ensure that you have the right healthy food around you.
Eat with family or friends where possible to help avoid overeating and triggering the need to binge and purge. Enlist the support of those around you to help you stay on track.
Don’t get upset with yourself if you find yourself binging and purging. Remember that tomorrow is a new day and you can reset your goals and once again put your plans into place and get right back on track. It may take time to find the inner strategies and resources that will allow you to change for the better. Give yourself that time, trusting that you will get there. All the while know that eating a healthy balance diet and following a bulimia eating plan is your best shot at laying down a good foundation for recovery.
