I have always thought that weight problems can be solved by not eating. The less you put inside your mouth, the less fat in your body, right? But Lizzie Miller proved me wrong when I discovered “The Secret Anorexic Diet.”
I discovered the anorexic diet while I was browsing the Internet, looking for validations on my belief that starvation is the key to weight loss. I was attracted to Lizzie’s website http://howtobecomeanorexic.org. Who wouldn’t be when just by the address, you would think that it teaches you how to become anorexic, a person who is so thin because of anorexia, a disorder wherein food is a no-no.
But I was totally wrong. The anorexic diet does not promote starvation to lose weight. It teaches you to eat properly to lose weight.
Here are five foods, which, thanks to Lizzie, helped me with my anorexic diet:
1. Soup. A cup of any soup can help you lose weight while at the same time nourish your body because it tells your brain that the stomach is already full. A study conducted by Purdue University involving 18 women and 13 men has proven this.
2. Grapefruit. A study done in 2006 by the Nutrition and Metabolic Research Center at Scripps Clinic found that eating a half serving of grapefruit before each meal or drinking its juice three times a day helped 91 obese people lose more than 3 pounds in over 12 weeks! Grapefruit has phytochemicals that can reduce insulin levels in the body, which forces the body to convert calories into energy.
3. Chili. Eating dishes with chili regularly can help you lose weight, mainly because of the capsaicin it contains, which is an appetite suppressant.
4. Nuts. Snacking on nuts can help you lose weight because these rev up your resting metabolism.
5. Eggs. Protein-rich eggs can help you feel fuller longer and can also help prevent spikes in blood sugar, which is the reason for food cravings.
