I am currently diagnosed with anorexia with bulimic tendencies and I can tell you from experience that it does cause bloating. This is because when you throw up, your body loses a lot of water and your body holds on to any new water it consumes. Bulimia also causes your face to look puffy.
Eating disorders lead to and are sometimes caused by body dismorphia so even if she doesnt look fat to you or anyone else, thats what she sees (or perceives) in the mirror.

ANSWER #6 of 11

It also causes gas to build up in your intestines. Your body was expecting food to be there and had everything it needed to digest it--but then it didn't show up.

I'm recovering bulimia myself. 5 years. Still not really over it. But even when I was in my worst episode, I knew I would be bloated the next day. And I still threw up. Because I asked myself, "well I can LOOK fat tomorrow while I'm bloated or I can actually BE fatter long after that if I keep the food in me."

I've had $6,000 worth of root canals, too. And I'm only 21.

The only thing you can do to help is encourage her to talk to someone professional. They can figure out what's causing the disorder and try to fix it. Remember, by making her stop throwing up, you're just curing the symptom. She's still going to be sick . . . and in mental anguish.

Listing all the symptoms won’t scare her into recovery nor will it help her to force it. If she truly wants to get better then she will accept the help but u can’t force someone if they don’t want the help because that’s useless.
