Question (trig?) When does one start.. - March 24th 2010, 01:18 PM

I was just woundering when does one start passing out or fainting...? I didn't eat at all yesterday except for some apple sauce... And the day I ate was when I relapsed and binged... I haven't ate today either, and am starting to feel a little dizzy... I was just woundering when one would start fully blacking out or fainting.

Hey Alice,

It's different for everyone, since all of our bodies are different. The best thing to do would be to not try it, and to eat something. Your body needs food to survive, and if you are starting to get dizzy or weak, that's not a good sign. It means that you are depriving your body of nutrients, and that's not healthy.

When it gets to the point where you have burned up more energy than you have consumed, and you start feeling dizzy when you stand up, or even if you are sitting down, that's when you start fainting.There's no set number of days, it's different for everyone. But why let it get to that point? You can fight this, you just have to keep trying, and don't give up.

If you need anything, feel free to pm me.

If depends on your gender,height,weight etc. But I wouldn't recommend not eating.

It really all depends on your body, as everyone is different! Some people actualy need to eat every other hour to stop them from feeling funny...but others don't have to eat much for days.
I really wouldn't recommend doing what you are doing though, if you are feeling faint, it is a sign that its not healthy...you are doing your body damage, hope you feel better soon
