Safe Foods. Weight. Anorexia. I had

^Safe Foods. Weight. Anorexia. I had a passing thought: If I wanted to lose weight, who is the most successful at keeping their weight off? Well, I've learned if you look to the extremes and then come back to where you are, you can get some ideas that will help you. So, I thought, what are some "Safe Foods" that people who are Anorexic currently eat? Well, Public Forums often are places where people come together, so I did a Google search. I hope this helps someone out there who is trying to lose weight, or even someone suffering from anorexia who needs ideas on more things they can eat that might be ok:

mine include dannon light n fit vanilla yogurt (lowest calorie yummy yogurt ive found)
diet cherry 7up
minute maid lite cherry limeaid – RIDICULOUSLY GOOD. NOT GROSS AT ALL, only 5 calories!!!!tastes like juice!
coffee with lots of sugar for some energy.
salad with vinegary low cal dressing and lime juice
i would like a list of yummy low cal food that i can stock up on.
what are your faves??

Pickles!! – 0 calories yet they are amazing. It's what I eat at night when I feel hungry. Hungry? Mmmmmm pumpking pie. *opens fridge* No! Pickles! delicious, 0 calorie treat! Ok, I'm finished with the pickles thing now. Moving on.
The teeny tiny apples
Diet Coke
Salad – ie lettuce with cucumbers and celery
Celery!!
Clementines – my favorite things ever. It's what I used to have for breakfast
Plain or salted rice cakes

I'll probably think of more later but that's it for now.

i love pickles too!!! but im afraid to eat them because my husband heard somewhere that eating them makes you…*smell* …..down there… lol.
so now im petrified to eat them or let him see me eat them for fear that he wont go there! and i desperately dont want that hahaha
i know its probly soooo not true but i have this weird obsession with always smelling good and clean (on my whole body, not just my lady parts!)
im going to google this now…i wonder if its true…

so i just googled it and i got mixed reviews. a lot of people dont have issues with pickles, but apparently broccoli, onions, asparagus, fish and curry all make you smell and taste bad. and pineapple makes you smell really sweet! this goes for guys too. pineapple makes it taste better for up to 12 hours….good to know! also, i read that it is commonly agreed that vegetarians smell and taste the best. interesting :)
(hopefully this wasnt tmi or too innappropriate! i tried to use nice language lol)

fruits and veggies, rice cakes, milk, eggs,
hmm… I can't think of anything else.
Milk and eggs aren't there because they're low cal but because (in my mind) their nutrition outweighs the calories.

ahaha i love you guys XP and no, pickles are pickled cucumbers. never tried pickled onions before.

my safe foods:
0 calorie tea (lemon or raspberry usually)
diet coke and diet dr. pepper
celery and carrots
plain unsalted (possibly multigrain) rice cakes (40) with 1/2 tablespoon of jam (25) or honey (30). i would say with peanut butter, but the kind we have is DEF not low cal enough, so i never use it.
100 calorie packs of pretzel goldfish for lunch :) love 'em
VITAMIN WATER ZERO!! it's the only drink they sell at school besides juice and plain water and i loooove it!
10 cal crackers occasionally, to ward off eating something else
soy milk in my cereal–10 fewer calories than skim! plus my dad buys it anyway
