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)

Her lickosuction technique unfortunately had the opposite effect, as it didn't involve chewing, which was the only calorie burning part of the process.
