Stealthfood

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: stellth-food

Sentence: The scale gave a small muffled electronic scream when Andy brought his full weight to bear. He was just about done with trying to shape up; two weeks of treadmill and proper diet had led to a 5-pound gain. Unfortunately, Andy had been mistaken in his meal-selecting logic, and all of the sensible meals he had recently consumed were in fact stealthfoods. The 8-oz portion of fish the night before, for example, had come from an Eastern Stoned Lardwrasse. After a lazy afternoon on the reef smoking reefer, the fish had consumed a bag of Funyuns, 3 Big Macs, 2 orders of fries, a chocolate shake, and a carton of Haagen Daazs. Leaving his friends laughing in his enormous wake, calling him names like "Marlin Brando", the lardwrasse had groggily stumbled into a waiting net, his certain doom, and another veneer of fat on Andy's barely denim-constrained buttocks.

Etymology: stealth + food; ala healthfood

She actually got a lot of exercise in her daily routine: she surfed the Net, jumped to conclusions, ran out of money, juggled her tasks, pushed her luck, drove her family mad and plowed through her paperwork, but still a thin body eluded her.

Fridgimen

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: fridj a men

Sentence: Martin was on a strict fridgimen to change his eating habits and body shape. Six times a day, he would vigorously stride (a cardio pulmonary exercise) to his refrigerator, open and close the door twenty times (to get a good upper body workout) and then bend over to get a beer from the bottom or reach up into the freezer to get an iced beer mug or ice cream treat (stretching exercises). He might also reach far into the back of the fridge (more stretching) to get cold fried chicken or lemon meringue pie out to eat. His theory was that if the food was cold, his body would have to burn more calories to warm it up so that he could digest it. Yes, his fridgimen was a good thermal workout and yet despite his fine muscle tone (for a 300 pound man) he never seemed to lose any weight. He just put it down to the fact that muscle weighed more than fat...

Sixpackflabs

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /siks-pak-FLABZ/

Sentence: Russell had switched to whole-grain doughnuts, light beer, and he was now using only low-fat mayonaise on his bacon and cheese sandwiches, plus, he'd been taking the stairs up to his 2nd floor apartment once a day, instead of using the elevator, and he'd even started doing armchair aerobics — trying to reach down to touch his knees during the TV commercials — and yet he was still gaining weight. Now he had sixpackflabs to show for it, and was well on his way to sporting a keg-belly.

Etymology: blend of; Six-Pack-Abs - well developed abdominal muscles (colloqiualism for the three pairs of bulges apparent in well defined abdominal muscles) + Flabs - soft fatty body tissue (back-formation from flabby, from Middle English, flabband "flapping")
