In brief: Yes & No

It all depends upon what you do during your free food day.
If you don't limit your food volume, then you have a greater risk of returning to your previous ways. If by free food day, you just have a taste of something you don't normally have, and depending upon how you've learned to deal w/your bulimia, then it might be ok. This is really something to be addressed w/your 1o md & psychiatrist.
