A great number of people with bulimia are overweight.


You really are a very charitable, compassionate person, farfromthe... I admire you for that.

It's just a shame you waste your mental energy on publicity/sympathy seeking pillocks like Prescott. He can't even take responsibility for being greedy and overindulgent so he has to turn it into an illness out of his own control. He's just made himself look pathetic rather than bringing discussion of genuine eating disorders to the fore.
Thought for the day: Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

Have you the faintest idea what you are talking about?
Bulimia and anorexia are wasting diseases. Prescot bulimic? pull the other one. I nearly lost my beautiful daughter to an eating disorder, and still may, it is never `cured`.....
How can he possibly expect not to make fun of his weight?.........
if you are bulimic you lose weight, end of, he doesnt even understand the principle of bulimia, his interview was the biggest load of tosh I have ever heard.
dont bother lecturing me, I KNOW everything there is to know. When you`ve been there then you can comment

Oh and by the way..even people with eating disorders have a sense of humour



yes I do know what I'm talking about but feel free to assume that I don't if that makes you feel better.

I think it does bring the discussion of eating disorders to the public attention and that may well be a good thing.

It's an unhealthy way of trying to regain control when you feel you have none, not everyone with bulimia (or who uses food in an unhealthy controlling way) is skinny. It's an emotional illness not a weight issue.

I think it's good that he has shared this at the risk of been mocked by people.

You honestly believe who wrote a book to bring eating disorders to people's attention? :shock:


Nah. You're having a laugh. :lol:

Yes? :roll:

I think that might be true. I had a step cousin from years back who was very large but also bulimic.

Why are we taking the p*** out of bulimics now?



""Approximately two-thirds of bulimic males had a history of being overweight as compared to one-third of bulimic females. Socioeconomic classes were equally distributed in one series (38). Mitchell's (42) study noted that patients were employed, that they were functioning well, and that eleven of twelve were married""

its Prescott thats having the p*ss taken out of.....

not bulimics...as if i would do that

I think the study relates to the patients size before they were bulimic.....
but i could be wrong

Sorry to hear that :(
It's certainly not uncommon for people who are overweight to have unhealthy control issues with their food intake, food denial and binging or vomiting in an attempt to give relief from feelings of powerlessness, it's a terrible thing. I hope they are finding healthier ways to deal with issues now :)

No, I know where you come from on this one Janz, and respect you for that. xx

It's rare for a man in the public eye to admit to eating problems and was feeling a bit aghast at some of the comments following the OP :roll:

Quote from john prescotts wife on this evenings news.

"I first realised John was bulimic when i noticed food going missing from the fridge"

On that basis my whole family are bulimic.

I wonder if this was some of the £4000 of tax payers food ?

:shock: :shock: :shock:


This story will do nothing to help those who genuinely have problems.
