I'm just curious how it works. I know those bulimic people don't get fat because they throw up not long after they eat, but what about alcohol? Is that like absorbed into your bloodstream so you have no chance of throwing up the calories or what? I don't have an eating disorder or anything, but sometimes I drink too much and I throw up at the end of the night. I'm just wondering if it's actually beneficial to my health. Is there a ratio or a limit to it? Actually, now that I think of it, if there's one time to be a bulimic, it's with alcohol. Think about it, get as drunk as you want and have fun for several hours, and then simply throw up before bed and it's like you never drank, how cool would that be? I guess it doesn't work like that, that's why I'm asking if there's a specific ratio or formula or something. How many hours does it have to be to not consume the calories, or is food and alcohol completely different in that aspect?
