Pronunciation: lik o suk shun

Sentence: Her Catholic upbringing had programmed her to believe that acts were only sinful when you took pleasure in them, so she applied the same logic to eating, figuring that you wouldn't get fat if you didn't enjoy the 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.

Etymology: liposuction, lick, suction

Pronunciation: dih-VID-ee-oh-PHAGE-ee-AT-rick

Sentence: Oliver would be the first to admit he had a few caloric intake issues and a hardy appetite, but his pal Laurel had taken a quantum leap into the bizarre world of MICROINGESTION. She seemed to believe that smaller portions, taken more frequently but in greater quantity would enable her to reduce her vast waistband. Her tragically DIVIDIOPHAGIATRIC behavior extended to the belief that ingesting a hundred jello shots was less intoxicating than a small tumbler of Wolfschitt Vodka. Laurel's morning bowl of steam was usually followed by nine hundred Cheerios she had diligently laid out the night before. For dessert, she limited herself to one AEROGELATO and a fistful of mini-M&Ms...Fortunately, Ollie took her to the mental hospial, where she spends her days in the DIVIOPHAGIATRIC ward, counting Sen-Sens and swapping Mini-Chicklets with the patients. Laurel managed to lessen her gross tonnage, but it was probably the hospital food - NOT the pretzel stix that did it.

Etymology: DIVide+IDIO+PHAGE+iatric= DIVIDIOPHAGIATRIC___DIVIDE:to reduce into discrete yummy portions___ -IDIO:suffix, Greek, from idios — : one's own : personal : separate : distinct___PHAGE: Greek -phagos one that eats, from -phagos ___-IATRIC: of or relating to (such) medical treatment or healing

metrohumanx Thanks J-wok. Good ento, but the word lacks MOXIE....that certain appeal that makes for a snappy Verbotomy. - metrohumanx, 2008-08-13: 19:50:00

Pronunciation: sni/bler

Sentence: In an attempt to lose 15 pounds in one week, the week before her wedding of course, Jan joined her sister's online weight loss support group and was now an official snibbler. Snibblers believe that as long as you snack and nibble from the plates of those around you and NEVER make a plate for yourself, the embarrassment alone will be a great motivator, as well as the many times your hand will be slapped away.

Etymology: Snack Nibble

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

Pronunciation: new-tra-bing-o; new-tra-binj

Sentence: Hamish didn't know Nutrabingo was the latest fad in dieting. It made eating a game. Yes, a game! The player, or eater, could play solitarily or with others. The game involved gathering bits of nutrition of as many colors as possible on a base of pizza crust and licking them off. Extra points were given for foods of secondary colors. Points were lost if any of the crust was eaten. Whoever got full first yelled "Nutrabingo!" And everyone laughed which is good for digestion. You could laugh, too, even if you were eating alone. It was a complicated and ever-evolving game, but very rewarding as the pizza base could be used over and over again. Even so, Cerise couldn't blame Hamish--she had just found out about Nutrabinging herself. She loved the game almost as much as she loved playing Verbotomy.

Etymology: nutrabingo: noun, from a combination of nutrition + the game of Bingo; nutrabinge: verb, from a combination of nutrition and binge
