If you are not digesting any food you are not going to poop.

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
