Every one, here are some great tips I got from a pro ana site. Sorry it's so long! enjoy:

  1. Wear a rubber band around your wrist and pull it when you get hungry. Your body will soon associate food with pain.

  2. Chew sugarfree gum! It burns calories and makes your body think it's eating

  3. Drink 2 tbsp of vinegar before a meal. It eats the fats.

  4. Browse Pro Ana sites, it will help you keep on track when you hear about other peoples' success and see beautiful skinny people.

  5. Drink ice water!!! Your body burns calories trying to heat itself back up.

  6. Do not keep food that you think you'll binge on in the house.

  7. Pull in your butt all the time. Guys like butts and it burns calories.

  8. Keep an online food diary. If you keep track of what you eat online, where other people can read it, you will feel the pressure to eat well. A good site to do this on is onlinediaries.com.

  9. Laxatives do help you lose weight, but it is all water weight. You aren't losing any real weight, but you are losing much-needed water. SO DON'T DO IT!

  10. Eat on smaller portions on a smaller plate.

  11. Eat on black plates, it makes your food more visible.

  12. Don't eat after 7 p.m. It will just sit in your stomach all night, and you won't burn it off.

  13. Eat vegetables and fruits with negative calories, like apples and celery.

  14. Eat low calorie soup, it has almost no fat and barely any calories and it fills you up easy.

  15. In the morning, you should eat something small, but high protein, like cottage cheese and eggs. It could make you hungry, but it increases your metabolism.

  16. If you binge once in a while, it can help you get off of a plateau (stopped weight loss).

  17. Spin around in circles; it curbs your appetite and it's fun!

  18. Eating several small meals is better than eating one huge meal.

  19. Suck on ice; it curbs your appetite & makes your body think its eating.

  20. Take a couple of tums (it curbs stomach acid)

  21. Remember how disgusting fat is.

  22. Look at reverse triggers because it will show you what you'll become if you take that one bite, you fat cow!

  23. Become a vegetarian; meat has a lot of fat in it, and it gives you a great excuse not to eat a lot of foods, and you can say that you're being politically correct.

  24. If your stomach is growling too loudly, hit it in the lower part. Don't hit it in the upper part of your stomach, you could miss and break a rib and if you hit it there, you muscles automatically tighten so it won't help.

  25. Keep a garbage bin next to you when you eat, because when you think you're overeating, just throw it out.

  26. Rice cakes are an AMAZING snack. Keep a couple packs in the house, they're only 30 calories so u can eat a couple.  Remember ONLY a Couple!

  27. If you have braces, think about how embarassing and annoying it is to get food stuck in your braces, and think about it. If you don't eat, food can't get stuck!

  28. A really, REALLY useful site is fitday.com. it is completely free, and on it you can chart the foods you ate. if you ate a bagel, for example, you select bagel from the list and it will tell you exactly how many calories, carbs, and how much fat was in that bagel. You can also enter how much you exercised and what type of exercise it was, and it will tell you how many calories you burned and you can also use the weight tracker. It also has a journal that can either be public or private, and a whole section for goals.

"Drink 2 tbsp of vinegar before a meal. It eats the fats."

Consumption of vinegar will increase the acid levels in your stomach. Long-term consumption of vinegar will cause diarrhoea and can do damage to your stomach lining.
