Ok, I found out last night that my girlfriend is bulimic. I heard through one of her girl friends and finally brought it up to her only to hear a long pause, then a 'yes'. She went on to tell me that she's had eating disorders since the 5th grade. At one point she was anorexic, and she used to also throw up a lot, and shes had something called Hypoglycemia (Blood sugars?). Recently she got on birth control, and thinking she would get fat, started throwing up again and has every night after dinner for the past 2 months.
Heres the thing though. Sounding as least cocky as possible, my girlfriend is absolutely breathtaking. She is easily a 9-9.5, no exagerations. Shes about 5'5 124, with C Cups, a perfect butt, perfect legs, and an overall perfect body. She is absolutely beautiful.
We're really close and some things that she does really worries me. She barely eats at all during the day, works out constantly, and is VERY self conscious. Knowing shes not fat, I'd make a fat joke and shed FLIP. Very very self conscious. She made a comment last night about bulimia that really bothered me. She said "well...it works". She believes that it does help her, and it does work.
I was very stern and serious with her, and made her a deal. I told her last night was the last night she'd ever throw up. But I told her she has no pressure, and if she ever does again she has to call me right after and tell me she did. This, in my opinion, will establish responsibilty. Secondly, she told me she's willing to try it my way. She knows I'm way into nutrition, and that I know what I'm talking about more than any doctor, so I laid out a plan we're gunna follow.
First, Im going to establish an eating guidline that she'll follow every single day. My entire family is into weightlifting and sees a nutritionist, and my mom recently lost a lot of weight (high protein + high vegetables). I told her I'd model her food plan from my moms. Secondly, whenever she comes over to my house shes going to step on the scale and I'm going to record her weight. She made it clear that she hates scales, so I told her I was the only one that was going to see the number. She told me she'd rather not do bodyfat, but this is a bodyfat scale and by entering her height and gender, I can get that number too. Im planning on making a chart and showing her her progress down the road, and having bodyfat cant hurt.
Heres the thing though. She only really agreed to do it my way if I got her a fat burner to go along with it. I mentioned either Hot Rox, Lipo 6, or Sesathin. The only problem is that she lives with her parents, and they'd freak if they saw Sesathin in the refrigerator, so unfortunately that may be out. What do you reccomend along the lines of fat burners?
Please tell me if this is the best way to do it. She made it clear she would NOT see a professional, only me. I know she trusts me and will do whatever I say. I feel I can help her, and am going to put my all into this. Give me your opinions.
Thank you very much,
