" I can't answer that, hon. I live on water and then allow myself to have chicken soup once every three days. Then purge that. I also take laxaives several times a day. "

" Once your bowel has enough waste it will clear itself providing it is hydrated enough, to ensure regular bowel movements eat banana. Its a myth that laxitives help lose weight, or make movements regular, over use and misuse has serious health implications as the bowel will not easily repair itself. "

" I've had the same problem you are describing. I used to be very very very normal in terms of digestion and bowel movements. When i started binging and purging all of a sudden I started having all kinds of stomach problems. Especially bloating and constipation. Sometimes the constipation and bloating would leave me feeling so disgusting I would binge and purge. Usually after a binge I could poop. It was really weird. Honestly the only thing that helped me was to stop eating so many vegetables and stop binging and purging. When I eat regularly and don't let myself get too full and am carefull about how many vegetables i let myself fill up on (especially raw ones) my bowel movements go back to completely normal. It takes a few days of being really uncomfortable but it works. Good luck "
