Oddballimia

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: od bal EE mee ah

Sentence: Candy can't understand why she can't lose weight. She scrupulously avoids starches after 5:00 pm ("it turns right to fat"). She always carefully counts her daily calories. She eats lots of celery ("it takes more calories to digest it than it has in it, so that's negative calories"). She also eats a lot of spicy foods too ("that revs your metabolism and burns more calories"). Of course, drinks don't really count because they are mostly water; the same goes for soup. And everyone knows that the bites you take while you're cooking, to "taste test" the food, don't count. She does eat whatever is left on her kids' plates, but those calories don't count either because she eats standing up.

Etymology: oddball + bulimia

Alphabedining

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: alfa be dyn ing

Sentence: Being a slave to fad dieting, Trixie had found a new regime to try. It was called alphabedining and basically you could order whatever you wanted as long as you ate fruits and vegetables in the alphabetical order of their names. So she would eat the apples, apricots or avocados first. Then the bananas, beans, beets next. By LMNO, she was usually full. At this rate, Trixie would never get to eat yams or zucchini again.

Etymology: Alphabet (a character set that includes letters and is used to write a language) & Dining (eating,consuming food)

Today's definition was inspired by Robert J. Sawyer's Rollback. It may be science fiction, but when Rob gets rolling you can't help but laugh at the details of our daily lives -- like eating pizza. Rollback's pizza moment starts off with, "She was used to the way her husband ate pizza, but couldn't actually say she liked it", and then jumps right into the gory details. Thanks Rob! ~ James
