SKINNY GIRLS HOW YOU BE SKINNY PLZ LET ME KNOW.
Because 1200 calories isn’t enough. Eat your BMR on days you don’t exercise and more than it on days you do. You’ll be hungry if you’re not eating enough.
That right there is one of the worst blogs I’ve seen in a long time.
^I’d WAY rather have people say “look at her thighs” because of how ripped they are than some one say “look how skinny she’s become.” I HATE being called skinny.
^This does not look good. This looks sickly and unnatural. It’s impossible to have a gap that large without a very unhealthy diet (aka a diet of nothing).
^Because of how sickly you look?
^Are you a vampire?
^Because everyone wears shorts like that.
^My thighs are pure muscle and they still get bigger when I sit down. It’s called BEING HUMAN.
Blogs like this are ones that engrave in girls heads that they need to be perfect. That if they don’t qualify for all of the above then they’re not good enough. Flaws are amazing, and so is having meat on your bones. People who submit to these blogs are the girls who know absolutely nothing about health and worship girls who are twigs.
This just disgusts me, I’m sorry. I don’t see the appeal in this kind of blog at all.
Sorry for the rant. I am just so over the “thinspo” community on tumblr. They’re a just a bunch of low-self-esteemed little girls who think being skinny will make their lives perfect.
Edit: I didn’t make this clear in my rage-fueled rant, but I know that many people who runs these do have disordered thinking. However, almost every girl I know/follow with real EDs are disgusted by thinspo. I’m obviously not ranting about people with mental disorders, that would be crazy (no pun intended). I’m talking about girls who are just obnoxious and think being thin is the most important factor in life.
Myself. :) True story. It’s amazing how much muscle does for you.

gym grind, everyday.. hope you guys join me!
My biggest problem is woofing down my food without even tasting it. I can be done with a bowl of pasta in two minutes flat and be ready for seconds. Unfortunately, this isn’t a good thing when dieting. The faster you eat, the more you’ll want to eat.
I’ve learned to pace myself by taking smaller bites, chewing more, and have a gulp of water between bites. But then there’s that problem of eating out of boredom…
A good solution for eating too quickly/out of habit is to eat foods that take you longer to eat.
For me, the perfect food is String Cheese. Target Brand has some that are light, so they’re only 60 calories. The perfect caloric amount for a small snack. As long as you make sure you’re actually peeling the cheese, and not eating it in bites, it should take at least five minutes to eat it. For me it takes anywhere from 15-20 minutes because I’m so focused on peeling the cheese in even amounts!
Another good way to make you eat slower is to cut foods up smaller. Get an apple and cut it into small cubes rather than slices. Have a sip of water between each little cube.
Oranges are another great slow food. Instead of cutting it in slices, take you time peeling it. I don’t know about you, but I hate the taste of the white stuff on oranges. So I spend foreeeever picking off every bit of the white before eating my little orange section. Oranges, when peeled, not sliced, take me about 15 minutes to eat.
Popcorn is a great, low calorie snack. If you make yourself eat one kernel at a time (rather than a handful) and take a drink of water between every few kernels, then you’ll be full in no time!
So, with this I hope it gave you some ideas on how to take snacks and pace out your eating more. It will help you cope with boredom eating and you’ll be able to wait longer between meals!
Nothing is better than ginger ale when you have an upset tummy!
