Question by : How long after someone is bulimic would you notice weight loss?
I believe that perhaps someone I know is acting out through bulimia. I would really like to know how long it would take to notice any visible weight loss on someone before I should get this person help.

In bulimia weight loss is one of the last noticeable symptoms. I would say a good month before you notice some weight loss. If you look at their knuckles often times they are red or scratched from forcing themselves to throw up. After eating they will disappear within fifteen minutes to ” use the ladies room” When I was bulimic I would go to the back bathroom and turn on the radio or shower and pretend to shower. Please get this person help as soon as possible my eating disorder was by far the hardest thing I have ever been through, good luck hun.
