Pro Ana Fitness Tips

You probably have one of the best lifestyles and not only do we know that almost everybody among us has that one dream of being so fit, so slim that you may at least stand out of the crowd with a brilliant personality and a great physique.

If you also face the issues of more weight, if you have put on more than enough fats, if you too are ashamed and embarrassed in going out anywhere because of the extra weight that you have put on, then you for sure need to follow the pro ana diet plan and the Pro Ana Fitness Tips.

First of all, what does Pro Ana mean? Let’s tell you that Pro-ana refers to the promotion of behaviors related to the eating disorder anorexia nervosa. It is often referred to simply as ana and is sometimes personified by anorexics as a girl. The lesser-used term pro-mia refers likewise to bulimia nervosa and is sometimes used interchangeably with pro-ana. Pro Ana means promoting or favoring the anorexic diet or mimicking the behavior of people who are suffering from anorexia nervosa eating disorder. You possibly might not be aware of this thing and the thing is that some people who also claim that anorexia nervosa is not a disorder but lifestyle also call themselves members of the pro ana community. Every day is a fight when you’re anorexic if you have another one to help you it’s a lot easier. It’s important that your ana friend is someone you trust and like.

Anorexia is a type of eating disorder where a person gets obsessed with losing weight and getting as thin as possible. But, the people suffering from anorexia nervosa do not willingly follow this diet but they do this because of the disorder which they are suffering from. However, Anorexia isn’t always really about food. It’s an unhealthy way to try to cope with emotional problems. When you have anorexia, you often equate thinness with self-worth. Anorexia can be very difficult to overcome. But with treatment, you can gain a better sense of who you are, return to healthier eating habits and reverse some of anorexia’s serious complications.

But now a days people have started to follow the anorexic diet to actually loose weight and get slim and fit fastly. The diet followed by anorexic people has been known to help people get slim fast. This is also known as “thinspiration” which means inspiration to get thin. Anybody could get inclined to it and in the modern era, we see more of this disorder in many people around us. So why do people become Pro Ana, mostly youngsters?

Actually, in a society where being delicate is termed as perfect, a lot of impressionable youngsters will naturally want to strive to be just that. Seeing gorgeous models with thigh gaps, washboard stomachs and protruding collarbones sets out the idea that this is how you should look. In an age where social media is rife, it’s all too easy to stumble upon a pro-ana site. They tell you how to achieve this fake goal and support and encourage you to do it.

Students today are very stressed and turn to social media to calm their worries like everybody else does. Because of the embarrassment of their obese body, many teens feel the need to cut down on their weight in whatever way possible. Because anorexia is one of the two most prevalent eating disorders it’s not as though teens as a whole are pro-ana, it’s that the group of children with anorexia has gone up. Additionally many people with anxiety conditions are also very creative but more likely to suffer from an eating disorder, this leads to “pro-ana” literature which can negatively impact their peers.

Suppose you are a food lover and enthusiastic person who wants and loves to try every kind of food on every day but is now facing issues due to the weight she has obtained in the course of time. Or consider this case- You are a food blogger and research every kind of food over the internet and trying it at different places. Now you can’t deny that as a girl, you’re losing the curves of your body and getting obese. Why not to strive for a perfect body again like you used to have.

So for this purpose, we have some great Pro Ana Fitness Tips for you that you can follow and implement in your everyday life.

Pro Ana Healthy tips for weight loss

1. Count every calorie!

Many people do find it hard to understand why they don’t lose that extra weight they have put on. Well the problem can be that they’re not honest to themselves. We agree that you can actually eat without noticing like if you take small bites from the food while you’re cooking but don’t take it too seriously. It is a very good habit to keep a track of the amount of calories you intake through the course of the day. Use any app or one of the many online tools available to count your calories. Make sure you don’t intake more amount of calories than the amount you burn.

 

2. Relate to school, ask a lot of questions!

If you are trying to move the attention away from the food, getting them to answer questions is a great way. Ask them open ended questions so that they have a while to talk and a while to think about what they are going to say. That way, they won’t be looking at your food but they will be focusing on answering the questions.

 

3. Talk, a lot!

Sounds easy, right? When you are talking, you aren’t eating. Hold the food up to your mouth and then say something as if you just remembered what you were going to say. That way, it looks like you were about to eat.

 

4. Remember the water!

Drink a full glass of water before you eat and then sip a full glass between bites, you will get full much faster. Remember it takes 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full. Drinking  water is one of the most important part of the anorexic diet. Also, being hydrated will keep you up and going throughout the day. It has also been proven that drinking water before taking your meals helps fill your stomach faster resulting in taking less amount of calories. Remember to not drink a lot of water in a single run, instead keep hydrated by drinking little amount after every few minutes.

 

5. Intake Small Meals

Pro Ana diet suggests that you should take various small meals instead of big meals at once and not eating again. This means that three 100 calorie small meals would be better than one 300 calorie meal. It gives your body an illusion that you are eating enough to keep your stomach full, whereas you are eating less. Also, take care that you never eat anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and you’ll get hungry more. If you need to, eat more frequently, not bigger amounts.

 

6. No Laxatives, please!

We never suggest you in taking laxatives because you really shouldn’t harm your body by stuffing such chemicals without any reason. Instead you could work out to to burn your calories. Eating laxatives is not a good solution to your problems. It can harm your body and you really don’t want that, do you?

 

7. Track the progress you have made so far

You should keep a track of your intake and outwards flow of calories. Tracking your diet can be highly effective and can help you achieve your goals much faster than you would’ve achieved them otherwise by other methods. There are many ways to track your progress, from basic approach to just weighing yourself every day to using various fitness tracking apps or using the wearable devices that can help you accurately count the number calories you are intaking and burning.

 

Some quick tips:

1. You may blame your brain for this but yes, it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full. So we suggest you to eat slow and drink a lot of water while you’re eating.

2. Believe us or not but you should use dark colored plates, just because dark blue or black plates makes you eat less.

 

3. Just downsize your dinner plate, the less food that is served to you, the less food you will eat. The same goes for liquid with the exception of water

4. Remove calories in recipe every chance you get. Choose the diet or low cal version when given the choice. Drink water instead of other beverages

5. When you go out, take very little money or only enough to buy whatever non-food item you plan on buying. This will make it harder to buy food for you at that point of time.

6. Never eat something just because you want to finish it. Only eat until you are satisfied. Those extra bites add up

7. Do other form for excises that you enjoy like badminton, tennis, swimming and do it regularly

8. People tend to over-eat when they are depressed or stressed, so be mindful to indulge in comfort-food when you feel down.

9. Eat in front of a mirror, naked or in underwear if possible. If you can’t, carry a picture of yourself in a revealing outfit and look at it when you want to eat

10. When you have cravings pinch your fat and look at your problem areas, don’t add to them!

11. Get rid of the fear of wasting food. The sooner you change yourself, the better. Leave a bite at first and pretty soon you will throw away food without any thought

12. Chew your food more. 30 bites for every mouthful. This helps digestion and also slows your pace of eating.

13. Cut your food into smaller pieces. It slows your eating, makes you feel like you are eating more, and makes other people think you ate more, too

14. Decide before how much you are going to eat. It helps to cook for one serving, so you can’t eat anymore.

15. Don’t eat after 7 pm or before 7 am. Chances are, your choices will be very unhealthy like carbs and sugary food. Also, it is not really very good to eat within 3 hours of going to sleep at night

 

16. Always get 7-8 hours of sleep because before just before you burn 100 calories while sleeping AND if you don’t sleep your appetite will increase by 15% the next morning.

17. If you have insomnia we can’t help it. But don’t cry for that at nights because there’s nobody awake. Do some workout while nobody is watching and maybe it will benefit you a lot more.

18. Every time you say ‘no thanks’ to food, you are saying ‘yes please’. Please mean what you say.

19. When you are alone, just Workout! There will really be nobody to bother you.

20. Breakfast should be your largest meal of the day. Just think about it, if you are waking up in the morning after an eight hour fast and want to be productive eat like a king! What’s the point of eating a large dinner if you are just going to be sleeping? Just go on and eat in the morning.

21. Create a methodical routine for eating. Cut food into tiny pieces, count your bites and the number of times you chew, set your utensils down between bites, and sip water between bites. Add other rules or rituals of your own.

22. Eat higher-calorie items earlier in the day so you have more time to burn them off; if you eat late eat light or it will be more likely to be stored as fat due to inactivity. Try not to eat too late, sleep burns calories and is a good opportunity to burn fat with little effort. The body must burn through all digesting food before taking energy from stored food.

23. Write down everything you eat and its calories. This will make you think before eating and also make you more aware of how much food and calories you are actually consuming. You can also write down other things such as how you’re feeling, who you’re with, place, time, and why you chose to eat it, this will help you track patterns in your eating behavior.

24. We always recommend you to wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it when you want to eat.

25. Carry a list of all the reasons you want to be thin and avoid food. Look at it when you want to eat to remind yourself why you won’t. Or, write a new list every time you want to eat. It’ll distract you, postpone eating, and thinking of the reasons will inspire you.

26. Green tea raises metabolism and is very good for the skin and overall health. Drink it in the morning to increase metabolism for the day. Add lemon to make it more effective and to add a detoxifying aspect.

27. Drink up to a shot of apple cider vinegar before eating, it’s supposed to minimize fat absorption. Also speeds metabolism and can help curb cravings. Drinking more than a shot causes a vague nausea which helps suppress appetite.

28. Look up the nutritional info online before going to the restaurant so you can decide before hand what you want.

29. Brush your teeth when you want to eat. The clean feeling and mint aftertaste will put you off food.

30. Press on your stomach when it grumbles. Really!
