Default Health effects of vomiting after a binge

I had a binge on new year's eve and decided to vomit exceedings food, to avoid heavy feeling and possible stomachaches (which I suffered on Christmas Eve), and to cut down inbound calories.

I enjoyed the food and suffered the vomiting period (lasting and disgusting).

I know vomiting has negative health consequences. I tried to get rid of them so it wasn't detrimental, I don't know if I did. For the teeth related negative consequences I brushed my teeth. For the impairment in electrolyte balance, I took magnesium+calcium+potassium supplement.

Are there more negative consequences, or aren't my "fixes" enough?

I know vomiting probably is negative on a regular basis, but I want to know if one vomiting from time to time is acceptable.

Regards

Weren’t you ever a kid with a stomach bug and vomited several times a day? You’re still alive after that so don’t overthink this. I would be far more worried about having a binge you felt the need to vomit from.

Do you want us to support your eating disorder? You should post this question on an eating disorder forum or subreddit and see what answers they give you. I will give you a hint, this is absolutely not ok and you should stop it before it gets out of hand. Never do that again. Seriously, bulimia is horrible.

Really? Do you consider vomiting one time in my life an eating disorder? I see comments that consider it a bad idea but I just wanted to know why (backed on scientifically research preferably).

Vomiting one time? No. But you made it seem like you were going to consider it an option going forward. Here are some reasons regularly vomiting after binging is a bad idea.

●Parotid and submandibular (salivary) gland hypertrophy, with puffy or swollen cheeks
●Laryngopharyngeal reflux
●Loss of gag reflex
●Esophageal dysmotility
●Abdominal pain and bloating
●Heme-stained emesis
●Mallory-Weiss syndrome (esophageal tears)
●Esophageal rupture (Boerhaaves’ syndrome)
●Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
●Barrett’s esophagus
●Gastric dilation
●Diarrhea and malabsorption
●Steatorrhea
●Protein-losing gastroenteropathy
●Hypokalemic ileus
●Colonic dysmotility
●Constipation
●Irritable bowel syndrome
●Melanosis coli
●Cathartic colon
●Rectal prolapse
●Pancreatitis

It is bad because it makes it more likely in the future. Probably every single case of bulimia starts with this type of thinking.

If you want to avoid that simply don't eat absurd amounts of food or take a supplement that improves digestion.

These are risks associated with regular vomiting.

My idea is vomiting with very low frequency. While I consider once a week safe, I won't exceed one time a month for safety. If you want to call me bulimic for vomiting once a month you can do.

Specially, in celebrations when there are a lots of highly tasty food available, I like to enjoy the food and don't care about the calories. If I eat to the point of feeling sick, then vomiting is useful.

It really reads as though you're trying to give yourself permission to develop an eating disorder.

Instead of worrying about the health effects of vomiting, maybe it would be better to think more about why you feel the need to eat so much that you make yourself sick. It would be better to discuss these things with a mental health professional rather than a bunch of strangers on the internet.
