056.hide a plate or zip lock bag near your computer..right before supper go to your computer room and when supper is ready say your doing your homework and want them to bring your meal to you..when u get it just put it in the other plate or zip lock beg and bring the dish back up in 15 min.' works just make sure u dispose of the food later
057.take a picture of yourself scantily clad, and every time you wanna grab for the cake and cookies and ice-cream, just look at the pic (it could be nude but keep it hidden)
058.when you're hungry chug down two glasses (or how many you need) of water straight, it'll make you so full and nauseous you will have completely lost your appetite
059.when you have a craving for sweets, have 'crystal light' sugar free candies!! they're really good, and are HALF the calories of normal hard candy
060.Taking more than the recommended dose of kelp makes you feel sick and you don't have to try and restrict ... not sure about the safety aspect of this tip though
061.Buy lunches/dinners of canned/contained foods, like lunch buckets, then without cooking them hide them in your room or locker as if you were eating them, and instead walk/drive them once a week to your local homeless shelter
062.when you are in school, grab something on your why out the door to eat(because your in a hurry)-throw it out. Then when lunch time comes go to the library instead of with your friends -they will only fuck things up. Then get involved in an activity that goes really late so you come home after everyone else has eaten and you can take a plate of food to your room to eat while you are doing your homework (put the food in a bag and throw it out with tomorrows breakfast. The only thing is weekends- try to stay as busy as possible
063.wearing "fashionable" gloves and scarves really helps when you get coldÂ… and makes people less suspicious than if you're always bitching that you're cold when they're all fine
064.Celery actually burns calories. Every hour I eat a stalk of it. Not only will it fill you up, but it'll also get your metabolism kicking
065.chewing and spitting out all the foods you crave and can't have is great, but this technique can also be used for chewing gum. If you like to chew massive amounts of gum, especially regular sugar-full gum, just chew it and spit out your sugary saliva. At 10 calories a stick, gum can add up quickly. Also remember that sugar-free gum is not calorie free so try spitting with it too. Another good reason to spit as you chew sugar-free gum is because the sorbitol in it can cause gas and bloating
066.When you feel you need to eat, list the reasons why its not such a good idea, by then you'll most likely lose the craving, and you'll have convincing reasons not to eat
067.Try Green Orange or Bitter Orange (found at health food stores). They contain synephrine which increases your metabolism more effectively and it's not as dangerous to use as ephdra (Ma Huang)
068.Coffee! On an empty stomach it will make you feel sick and will curb your appetite while burning cals b/c of the caffeine
069.always wear a rubber band on your wrist, when you're tempted - twang, you wont be for long
070.sniff scented markers or anything else that may smell like a fruit and then you won't be hungry anymore
071.Make a trigger/thinspiration book filled with dieting tips, quotes, safe foods, and anything else that will trigger you into not eating. When you feel the urge to binge, refer to your trigger book-it will remind you that you don't want to stay fat
072.If you get hunger strikes, go on a walk or sleep...keeping your mind off food will make them go away
073.If you're in college, plan your schedule so that it spreads throughout the day that way you won't have long gaps of time where you can pig out in your dorm this way no freshman 15
074.whenever you get hungry, think of all the people who made fun of you in jr. high
075.if you are eating a meal..only eat the every 5th take a bite spit it on and so on..but when you get to your 5th swallow. then repeat
076.Whenever you feel hungry or feel tempted to snack, exercise. Go to a gym or do sit ups or jumping jacks or go run around the block a few times. When your done exercising, you won't feel hungry anymore
077.Put your fork down in between bites at meal time
078.If you feel empty try this, you can buy bagels, that are 98% fat free, split it in half, chew on it for a while, they fill you up as they appear stodgy, once you've eaten a mouthful spit the rest out, they're dry so encourage you to drink water, which fills you up
079.Always keep a trash can near you when you eat so if you feel like you are going to over eat, you can just make it a reflex action to throw the food away. You can't think about it though, b/c you'll just decide to eat. Even if you've only eaten 2 bites; if you feel that you might be full, just reflexively throw the food away. If your at a restraunt, just choose a seat next to the trash. I don't recommend this tip if you're eating with other people, though
080.If you're annoyed at your family for always trying to make you eat breakfast with them, tell them (while holding your stomach with your arms and looking like you're about to puke) that you always feel sick after you eat in the morning so early. Or that you have to go swimming in a few hours, and that you don't like eating before that
081.if you feel too tempted, go for a long, long walk and list all the reasons why you shouldn't eat the food. then when you come home you may be like "oh whatever I don't need that anymore"
082.If you do cook food, make sure it's something that takes a long time to cook (like cookies or a pasta or something) and also that has a big aroma, so that way when it's done and you're ready to eat it, you will have gotten filled up just by the smell and waiting and you won't be able to finish it all (this worked for me before I even realized it did). It also helps to drink a lot of water while you're waiting, as that fills you up, too
083.When you are really hungry (physically) then take some anti-heartburn pills. Stomach acid is always being made to help digest food and when you don't eat it builds up and you feel *hunger*. Pills help naturalize the acid and you won't get hunger pangs
084.If you throw food in the trash can in your bedroom, make sure you get rid of the bag before going to bed - otherwise it will reek in the morning
085.Drink plenty of water, at least 8 glasses a day. This ensures that the kidneys are functioning properly. If you are not fully hydrated this means that the kidneys are not working to their full capacity and results are that the waste products are then dumped onto your liver which, is where the fat process actually occurs. Water actually speeds up your metabolism
086.Excersise and sweat, when you sweat you burn calories, don't over due it however because then you will have a heat stroke. Also if you take a hot bath and you lose water from sweating, but wen you drink all the water it comes back again. A good way to do this is if you are going out and you really wanna fit into that tube top for summer, then just don't drink anything and take a HOT HOT shower and sweat a lot you will be thirsty but you will have lost a lot of weight for the time being. remember body is 98% water
087.If you feel like eating, the most important thing is to get out of the house!! Walk all the way across town to buy coffee/diet soda, go study somewhere where you won't be tempted to eat, or go to the gym
088.Eat a tiny piece of onion (like 1/2 in square). That way you have onion breath and people believe you really ate
089.If you have a craving for sugar, try fat-free, sugar free Jell-O... its only 10 cals per serving... if you want you can eat the whole bowl and its only 40 cals
090.After you eat brush your teeth. You won't want to eat when you have that minty taste and you teeth are clean
091.get tape or those roll up bandages and wind them tightly around your stops you from eating because you can't get the food down properly and you also look thinner
092.If you eat at night before you go to bed make sure you lay on your left side it makes the food go through your system faster and wont have as much time to suck fat out of the food. but you shouldn't eat before you go to bed slows down your metabolism
093.just keep yourself extremely busy, almost to the point of being completely stressed out and you can go for 8hrs without being hungry or wanting to eat
094.Use two of the packet ginseng you find in convienence stores if you don't have diet pills (mini-thins work well also). Be sure you don't take more than two every six hours or so because if you haven't eaten in a while, 3 can give you the shakes
095.If you don't feel comfortable not eating too much, eat only a hard boiled egg, an apple, and a glass of water. It will fill you up all day
096.If you live with your parents, go to bed early & sleep late to avoid some meals, then go out in the day, & say you've eaten a lot. Also, keeping busy will burn more calories
097.go out whenever you feel hungry ~ go to club and dance the night away~~ you have forgotten about your hunger and have burn a hell of a lot of calories by dancing all night
098.Remember, out of sight is out of mind. If there are goodies lying around on the counters or table; put them away and/or hide them. That way whenever you walk through the kitchen you won't be tempted
099.Make banana and fruit smoothies in the blender. They fill you up but aren't high calorie
100.Make vegetable soup with low cal veggies cut up in chunks. You can have a full bowl and feel full but actually you never ate very many calories
101.If you can, get a job around food. I work at an Arby's, and it has curbed my appetite drastically
102.get comfy in bed, being comfy means you don't want to move, which means no getting up to get food
103.To get a slimmer belly, do as many crunches as you can stand. And then go to bed so you're well rested and not hungry
104.take zinc and potassium supplements, these work well with kelp in raising metabolism and mobilizing fat
105.drink several cups of green tea each day, which helps raise metabolism, also, add a few slices of lemon and a tiny bit of honey - this aids liver and kidney function, and thus avoids extra weight gain... it also fills u up quite well
106.If you have a terrible craving, turn on the T.V.! Most likely, SOME sort of show will be on with skinny, gorgeous actresses/models. It's a definite way to curb an appetite
107.If sitting at school, college etc. constantly tap your feet/fingers. Fidgeting throughout day is proven to burn up to 800 calories per day
108.If you get hungry, brush your teeth with mint toothpaste
109.If you're talking about celebrities, make sure to mention how you think Calista Flockhart is too thin and that you think Kate Winslet is gorgeous. Praise fat and people will never guess that you're starving yourself into thinness
110.If you're in outpatient treatment and have to have your blood tested - a comprehensive metabolic panel - there are a few ways you can fool the test. One, drink water - LOTS. You need to flush the ketones that have built up in your system out of your body or else they'll know you're starving/burning fat. Two, eat some nutritional stuff - yogurt, fruit, cereal - the day beforehand as well as a few hours beforehand, Technically, you're supposed to fast for 12 hours before the test for it to be accurate in measuring your vitamin levels. NOT fasting will up the vitamin levels. Three, makes sure you always take vitamins. Finally, you'll want to make sure you get your electrolytes in. Smartwater has 0 calories and electrolytes - perfect for this tip and the first one! So drink up
