Lickosuction

Nutrabingo

Created by: readerwriter

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

Ritestuffing

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: ryte stuf fing

Sentence: Ava Dupois had developed a system called ritestuffing to try and watch her calories. If she ordered a big juicy hamburger with all the trimmings, she would be sure to order a diet soda with which to wash it down. Her logic being that the no calories in the soda would counteract the many calories of the burger. In her mind, you could undo all the harm that your favourite fatty foods might do simply by counterbalancing with non-caloric foods. By the same ritestuffing philosophy, she'd eat apple pie with low-cal frozen yogurt on top;mix rum with diet Coke; wash down chocolate cake with skim milk and eat French fries with diet ketchup. She dreamed she could market her philosophy and become the next big diet guru to make a fortune. Move over Jenny Craig and WeightWatchers! Although mentally she felt skinnier using ritestuffing, for some reason, she was having problems fitting into her clothes. This of course she put down to the theory of the dreaded shrinkhangers that lurked in her closet.

Etymology: Rite (ritual,of or relating to or characteristic of religious rituals; any customary observance or practice)& Stuffing (overeating or eating immodestly; make a pig of oneself; fillng completely)& The Right Stuff (You've got what it takes, and then some!)

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

Dividiophagiatric

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

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

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
