In brief: Any
Binging and purging deliberately, meaning not due to illness or side effect is abnormal and dangerous behavior. It is not like having one drink.
Exploring the underlying reasons is important. Is it to control anxiety, depression or weight? There are better and safer ways to address these problems. Seek help rather than trying to figuire out what is a safe amount, there is none.
