About purging? yes: Stool isn't the real concern. It's purging. Sounds like you're trying to battle bulimia, which is commendable. Make sure you're battling w/all tools available. Work closely w/eating disorders specialist. Stool changes likely related to vomiting bile instead of letting it pass into stool, &from dehydration. If stool changes persist several days after resuming normal diet, seek medical care.
