  1. I feel like we should share some self-care after purging tips. I know they had a thread about this on MPAI but I don't see anything on MPAII. I'll start:
    • Gatorade/Low Cal Gatorade/ Pedialyte: I don't care what it is, get those electrolytes in!!!!!
    • I take Magnesium and Potassium Suppliments after purging to balance out all that I lost
    What are some of yours?

  2. USEFUL TIPS
    If purging...

    1. Either take supplement/vitamin pills or eat bananas(Potassium), almonds or spinach(Magnesium)
    2. Drink plenty of water (Try 1 part lemon to 4 parts water)
    3. Don't drink sports drinks, fruit juices or soda to help rehydrate unless you have made sure it is low in sugar
    If use of Laxatives...
    1. Like always water is the magical fluid that can help in any situation
    2. Eat foods that are high in fiber(fruits, vegetables, and cereal, wheat)
    3. Avoid regular use of stimulant laxatives. Some can limit your body's ability to absorb vitamin D and Calcium
    4. Don't use any lax on the reg because that will cause many healthy problems and you're still absorbing the calories so there is no fat loss, just a temporary loss in water weight
    If wanting to reduce water retention/water weight
    1. Lower salt/sodium intake
    2. Take Dandelion supplements to signal to your kidney to release more urine as well as sodium
    3. Take Magnesium or Potassium supplements to balance electrolytes
    4. Cut down on carbs. Carbs are stored in the muscles and liver as glycogen, but glycogen also pulls water inside along with it.

    I swear every self care blog, journal, informational/educational website recommended to DRINK MORE WATER FOR ALL OF THESE. I think water is the closest thing to the modern day fountain of youth you can get
