Some good and helpful advice. Pretty sure i’m gonna post this often, because it’s really good.

*Drink water! This is the #1 rule for both ana and mia. It fills you up when you are hungry and makes purging easier. The general rule is also that hot water fills you up more and ice cold water helps you to burn more calories since it lowers your body temperature so your body has to work harder to stay warm. *Chew sugar free gum or mints constantly. I am never without one or the other in my mouth. The benefits are endless: it kills cravings, keeps your mouth full so you can’t binge, burns calories by chewing, peppermint flavors suppress appetites, and prevents bad breath if you are in ketosis. *Tea of Coffee are an Ana’s best friend. Drink with NO CREAM OR MILK and artificial sweetener ONLY. Tea is especially great because it comes in so many different flavors and is calorie free, as opposed to black coffee which has an albeit small amount. The caffeine is also great for raising metabolism. *Cut food into tiny pieces. Put your fork down between bites. Chew everything a certain number of times. Eat in patterns. Develop systems of eating. All of this helps to make food a mere object rather than the devil itself. *Take a sip of water or other calorie-free liquid between each bite. You feel full much faster, partially because the body often mistakes thirst for hunger, so by drinking, one actually reduces the amount of food their body needs to eat. *If you are really craving something specific and are on the verge of a binge, go into the kitchen, prepare it, and then eat it-but do not swallow! Chew it slowly, enjoy it, and then spit it out. Immediately after that rinse your mouth with water at least three times before swallowing a sip so you do not accidentally ingest any calories. *If you are about to binge, pick a safe food, preferably negative calorie (pickles, celery, blueberries, etc.) and eat it non- stop for up to half an hour, taking a sip of water with each bite. Often you will not be able to even get up to half an hour, and you will be full so the desire to binge will be gone, but you haven’t eaten anything “bad.” *No Sugar Added, Fat-Free Fudge Pops. These are the reason I am alive. They have 40 calories in one and taste exactly like chocolate ice cream. If you must binge, try eating a whole box of these. There are 560 calories in a box of 14, and they are easy to purge. *Do not ever eat anything you do not know the exact amount of calories in. Sometimes you can fool yourself into thinking you’ve eaten less than you have. Remember, numbers do not lie. *Track progress by measurements and not the scale alone. Scales are affected by everything from the weather to the time of day, but the numbers on a measuring tape are affected by nothing except the actual size of your body. *Keep a food diary. Start your own pro-ana page. Make an ed scrapbook. Anything that keeps your mind on not eating is a good thing. *When you want to eat, exercise for at least 15 minutes first. I like to put on nice lyrical music, usually Charlotte Martin or sometimes classical, and do bare work. It not only distracts you from eating but burns calories and benefits your body as well. *Buy a pair of expensive jeans at least one size too small. Try them on right before you eat. You will either not want to eat or will eat less. When you lose enough weight to fit into them properly, reward yourself by buying another pair, again one or two sizes too small.. *Eat low-calorie foods with very intense flavors. Often times you just crave taste. Chili peppers, anything pickled, peppermints, and very concentrated bullion (make it with half the water recommended) are all good options. *Make a list of foods that you are absolutely never ever allowed to eat. Write it down and keep it somewhere accessible. On this list should be things like doughnuts, cake, cream, soda, fatty meats like duck, and any dairy product not made with skim milk. If you really like any of these things and find it hard to resist, prepare it, but then put something disgusting all over it (like pouring vinegar on a cream-filled doughnut). Take a bite. You will find you have totally lost your taste for the food. *Diet pills are amazing, but you have to be careful. Try to eat something small and safe when you take one, like an apple or a small piece of grilled chicken. If you don’t then you will get awful side effects. The same goes for taking more than the recommended amount. I have taken four stacker 3 pills with no food and almost ended up dead because of it. Use, but with caution. *If you must go out to eat, go to the restaurant’s web page before hand, and find something safe to eat. Do not eat bread or appetizers. Order a salad with dressing on the side if everyone else is having appetizers. If there is nothing safe on the menu most places will make you a plain piece of grilled chicken or fish if you ask. *Never drink soda. There is absolutely no reason to. Even diet soda will actually make you look bloated and weigh a little more. -Water fasting cleanses the body, as the stored food (fat) is used rapidly and the body simultaneously expels all of those built up toxins in the body. -If you are fasting for weight loss and are following a juice or tea fast, a few days on just water will intensify the fast. You should purchase a tea cleanser to really boost up your loss.(yeah!) -Fasting can clear the skin and whiten the eyes and initiates rapid weight loss with a quick growth of hair and it shrinks the stomach. -Water fasting is not recommend for a first fast as toxins are released into the blood very quickly. Once again I suggest some type of cleansing tea first or juice fast(buy a juicer for best results.) -Fasting makes it easy to overcome bad habits and addictions try to stop smoking or some other bad habit during these days. -Fasting allows you to have taste appreciation for clean, natural foods, so after your fast juice fresh fruits and veggies and then move onto solids. -Going on a fast can give you the motivation and the enthusiasm you need to make a fresh start! (click here)for ways to learn more about nutrition. Fasting Info: -Distilled water is best for water fasting, please do not use tap water! -Juice made with fresh, organic fruits is best for juice fasting, especially if they are fresh squeezed. -Do not drink orange or tomato juice on a fast, these kinds of juices are to acidic to the stomach. -You can dilute your pure juices with water if you want to lose more weight. -Green juices made from leafy green veggies in a juicer are great for detoxifying (check out my links for the cheapest diet products I could find. -Pure veggie broths are good and beef or chicken for the first couple of days before a full fast is good to start off with. -Herbal teas and honey can aid in fasting but be careful when using your honey… go light. -Typical fasts (going totally without any solid foods) usually are performed as 3 days with an on and off type of method. Fasting for 7-14 days, should be supervised. Fasting should be done on and off to cleanse the body. -Break a fast by eating soft foods such as baby foods, heavy protein drinks, yogurts, soups, and raw fruits and veggies the first five-seven days after your fast. Go back to solids slowly. -Do not binge or overeat after the fast. Try to discover the amount of food your body really needs. -Meditate, go for a walk, take lots of naps, write in your journal, listen to music, go to take a warm bath. This is your time for healing, losing weight and gaining self-control and getting one step closer to your goals. More fasting tips: -After you have fasted, when you start to eat normally try very hard not to gorge yourself on anything. Try to eat slowly and chew all your food. Wait 20 minutes to see if you are still hungry. The calories you take in directly after your fast will stay with you a lot longer than those acquired when your metabolism is up. Also, you could experience pain and become very ill if you start eating again to quickly and in to large of an amount for your now shrunken stomach. -Don’t eat a big meal the night before your fast and never end your fast with heavy foods. Start your fast off with a soup and salad day or protein shake day. -Dry skin brushing helps your skin to breathe easier and can help eliminate uric acid and other poisons from your system, taking the strain off your kidneys and liver. Start at the feet and stroke your skin towards the heart. This is best to be done before and after the shower. -Epson Salt baths are soothing to sore-achy, weak muscles and also help eliminate toxins through the skin. Warm Epson Salt baths are great during fasts. You can purchase outer nutritional products at this site…(click here) -There are many types of fasts, here is another: The milk and fruit fast: 3x a day, a glass of milk, raw fruit and water in between. Water of course is so important. We absolutely must drink water to survive, and it has zero calories, so there’s no excuse to not drink it. As we typically get much of our water content through foods, when we reduce food intake we begin to dehydrate ourselves, which is dangerous. Also, cold water chills the body and may raise metabolism to get warm again. Vitamins and Minerals are essential for optimal weight loss and well-being. We must have these, too, to survive and so again there is no excuse to not take at least a basic daily multivitamin. Try taking some supplements to keep yourself healthy. Understand yourself. Learn what you need, and when, and why. Everyone is unique and there are no hard-and- fast universally applicable laws. Our bodies are very good at telling us what we need, and knowing what you need gives control over how you choose to satisfy those needs. Keep a diary of your food intake. This will make it easier to figure out if you are hungry or just bored and eating to fill some void. Get plenty of sleep. Steal naps whenever you can and rest when you need to rest Sleep deprivation increases appetite and makes you age faster. It is always recommended to get at the minimum 6hours of sleep a night every night to lose weight faster. You’ll lose pounds faster if you have a fast metabolism and slower if you have a slower metabolism. On average, fasts allow you to lose 1-2 lbs per day. Some experience more around 3-5 lbs per day. You’ll lose the most and the quickest during the beginning of your fast. 3day Fruit Diet
