Fasting Tips

Hello my Ana buddies, 

Alright I’m back. I don’t really want to talk about why I was gone for so long but I’ve been going through a tough time. I’m going to try to answer your emails but I have 341 sitting in my inbox right now so it may take a while and also post more. Please let me know if you think I should continue this blog and if it’s useful! Thanks. 

Here are some much requested fasting tips: 

Water - I can’t stress this enough. It keeps you hydrated and makes up for the loss of food. Plus, it’s zero calories, and fills you up.
Drink tea and coffee - they both contain caffeine which act as an appetite suppressant, and they fill you up.
Brush your teeth. A lot. You won’t want to eat anything with the minty taste in your mouth, and it’ll keep your teeth pearly and white :P
Sleep - When you’re fasting your body needs rest due to the lack of energy, and it gives you something to do other than eat.
Make a list of things you need to do during the day and do them. The busier you’ll be, the less you’ll think about eating.
Chew gum - For some people, this stimulates hunger, but if it doesn’t for you then it’s good to do. It keeps your mouth busy and the flavour will curb your cravings.
Chew/suck on ice - It will keep your hands and mouth busy, and will make your body burn those extra few calories.
Distract yourself - Do things you love so you’re too busy to eat 
Get rid of all binge foods or make sure they’re somewhere where you won’t be tempted.
If you have a retainer, wear it - you’ll know how hard it is to eat with it in.
Look in the mirror at your disgusting fat. Surely you don’t want to eat now?
Wear a pair of jeans a size too small to remind yourself not to eat.
Tie a belt around your waist and pull it tight. It’ll remind you not to eat.
Apply lip balm constantly throughout the day. You will be able to feel it on your lips, thus you will be aware of what you’re eating.
Drinking vinegar helps curb cravings. Drink 1tbsp whenever you want to eat.

Stay strong!

How to Get Rid of Uneaten Food

Hello Skinny Bitches, 

To avoid being found out, you’ll have to dispose of food which you should have eaten. Here are some tips on how to do that: 

~ Flush food down the toilet. This is one of the best and easiest ways to dispose of food as it’s quick, and you have easy access to one most of the time. Avoid foods which will expand in water, such as rice and cereal, as these could block your drains.

~ Give your lunch to someone else. This works especially well if you’re at school. Give your lunch to someone else, and your parents will think it was you who ate it.

~ Throw it in a bush. Any bush will do, but make sure it’s out of the way of the house so no one finds it.

~ Feed it to the dogs. Of course, it doesn’t have to be a dog! If you have a greedy cat or other pet, feed it to them. But in my experience, dogs are the number 1 animal because generally, they eat everything you give them.

~ Throw it in the bin. This one is risky. As everyone in the household will use the bin, it’ll be easy for anyone to find it. Wrap your food up so you can’t tell what’s in it, and if possible, use an outside wheelie bin.

~ Recycle it. Check with your local recycling to see if you can recycle food waste. If you can, then great! Take your food there regularly to dispose of it.

~ Keep a bin bag of all the food you don’t eat and throw it out when it’s full/starts to smell. Because it’s a bin bag no one will suspect it’s full of food.

Stay Strong,

The ABC Diet

Hello loves,

Here is some general info on ABC. Thinking about starting again soon.

The ana boot camp diet, or more commonly known as, the “abc diet” is one of, if not the most famous pro ana diets. It lasts for 50 days. You can potentially lose a lot of weight, the idea behind it being that the metabolism will be ‘tricked’ into losing more, due to the variety of calories consumed each day. 

The abc diet is extremely long and strenuous. Very few of the pro ana girls I’ve talked to have actually completed it. I must admit, the best I’ve ever got to is day 29, with 4 days over (sad face). If you however, have the strength and willpower to complete the whole 50 days, I applaud you. 

The diet:

1: 500 calories (or less)
2: 500 calories (or less)
3: 300 calories
4: 400 calories
5: 100 calories
6: 200 caloriies
7: 300 calories
8: 400 calories
9: 500 calories
10: fast
11: 150 calories
12: 200 calories
13: 400 calories
14: 350 calories
15: 250 calories
16: 200 calories
17: fast
18: 200 calories
19: 100 calories
20: fast
21: 300 calories
22: 250 calories

Common Pro-Ana Myths

Hey Loves,

I just want to clear up some common myths. Stay strong my buddies. 

Myth: Pro-Ana prays to anorexia. 

Reality: There is reference to a religion of sorts that exsists on pro-ana websites, with several referrals of the name “Ana” mentioned. But people, mainly the media and anti’s get confused and spread the misinformation that Ana refers to anorexia. The name Ana in the religious conotation actually is the full name Anamadim, and not some goddess named anorexia. The orgin of Anamadim was the creation of a site by the name of Underground Grotto, where there is even a summoning spell to invoke Anamadim. However there is an extremely slim (no pun intended) minority of those on pro-ana sites that partake in this religious style activity. This also has nothing to do with the letters, creeds, commandments, ect. either (see below for that information). It has nothing to do with the huge majority of pro-ana. 

Myth: The entire pro-ana religion. 

Reality: The pro-ana religion seen on many pro-ana sites was never created by any pro-ana site at all. All the creeds, letters, comandments are all made by professional psychologists in an attempt to make the mindset of the anorexic views be seen through their eyes. This was seen as a powerful message, and to those who are anorexic and wanting to go further into it, seen these messages as motivation instead of the reverse that it was intended to be. It’s funny how those that hate pro-ana unwittingly gave it a religion isn’t it? Not too many want that be known, and no wonder. Big opps eh? Just so you know, that is their writings if you ever see and/or use it. 

Myth: Pro-Ana is Pro Death 

Reality: If you ever been on a pro-ana forum before, you will notice that alot of the long term members are of a normal to ever so slightly below normal weight range. There is very few long termers that are in the medical anorexic weight range. So true they are thin, but in reality terms, they are in fact normal. In fact many of the extreme thin don’t frequent pro-ed forums at all, they are on support forums instead. Of those that get to an extreme level who post pics and weights, are replied back with messages of concern and pleas for them to take care of themselves and to not loose any more weight. Now you have to actually be ON the forums to know this, but those who cry out the evils do not do very good research into what they are talking about. You could say that pro-ana is alot more pro-support leaning than it lets on too.

Myth: Pro-Ana is teaching others to become anorexic 

Reality: You cannot “become” anorexic, it is not something you choose like a diet, anorexia chooses you and in the lottery of anorexia winning is loosing more than you know. It’s outside factors in your own enviornment that make one eating disordered, not text and pictures on a website. To those that think you can become “ana” … it won’t happen. You may skip a few meals, fast for a few days but that does not make you anorexic at all. Much like a drag queen, you can look act talk walk and sing every bit like Cher … but you are not Cher. It’s simple as that. 

Myth: Pro-Ana encourages you to stay anorexic 

Reality: This is the touchy one. We don’t encourage you to stay anorexic, but this is the biggest way in which we differ from the professional and pro-recovery sites. Instead of treating a disorder itself, pro-ana treats the person. We get to know the individual, what makes them laugh, smile, cry and scared to see what their world is like through their eyes. See, like I said before, eating disorders are a deep rooted problem and there is no point trying to get rid of something that will just come back again instantly. To get rid of this, one must get to the main root and work from there. Once the root is gone, the consequense of eating disorders are that much easier to recover from … and the process will be a lasting one.
