The Pro-Ana Diet: 8 Different Meal Plans to Follow (Number 4 Is Super Effective!)

The Pro-Ana Diet

I’m sure a lot of you have always wanted to lose weight quick and easy. It all begins with your diet! After all, one of the best methods to shed the pounds right start in the kitchen. One of the popular ways to lose weight is through the pro-ana diet, which is known to help you lose weight fast.

But what exactly is the pro-ana diet and how can you follow it? There are different types of these diets to choose from, but since it’s an aggressive diet, you have to make sure that you know how to do it correctly to stay energized and in good health.


So read on as I show you all about the different pro-ana diets and how to follow it.


Different Pro-Ana Diets for Weight Loss

Before anything else, let’s first delve into what pro-ana diets are. The pro-anorexic lifestyle is related to promoting and mimicking behaviors of those who suffer from anorexia nervosa, an eating disorder.

There isn’t just one type of pro-ana diet for weight loss. There are different meal plans many pro-ana dieters and sufferers of the eating disorder follow. Based on my research on different pro-ana websites and forums, here are meal plans you can follow:


The Lunabelle Diet

The Lunabelle diet is a condensed version of the Ana Boot Camp diet, which is 40 days instead of the usual 50 days. It has more fast days and calorie variations. This is a more “doable” diet, as it comes with higher calorie restrictions, with days you consume between 100 to 800 calories. There are double fast days, though, so you have to prepare yourself for these. If not, you can consume 50 or 100 calories to stay safe if you aren’t able to fast this long. After the 40 days, you will be able to lose up to 20 pounds or more!


The Rainbow Diet

The Rainbow Diet

This is a pretty interesting diet, as it entails you to consume one color of food per day, except for every Wednesday. Here is the meal plan:

Monday (white):
Breakfast: Half an apple
Lunch: Half an apple
Dinner: One cucumber

Tuesday (yellow):
Breakfast: One banana
Lunch: One banana
Dinner: Half a cup of corn

Wednesday: Fast

Thursday (orange):
Breakfast: Half an orange
Lunch: Half an orange
Dinner: One carrot

Friday (red):
Breakfast: Half a cup of strawberries
Lunch: Half a cup of strawberries
Dinner: Half a red pepper

Saturday (purple or blue):
Breakfast: Ten blueberries
Lunch: Ten blueberries
Dinner: Ten raspberries

Sunday (green):
Breakfast: Half a cup of grapes
Lunch: Half a cup of grapes
Dinner: One cup of lettuce


The ABC Diet

If you have been following the pro-ana lifestyle of quite some time now, then you’re familiar with the ABC diet, which is known as the Ana Boot Camp. This is one of the most popular diets to follow, as it’s extensive and incredibly useful. However, it’s very challenging and not many people pass it.

This grueling diet will yo-yo between 50 to 500 calories a day, with a fast every few days. The extreme calorie restriction will have you lose at least 20 pounds once you are done with the 50 days. You can eat anything in this diet, but make sure that it sticks to your limit.


The Five Bites Diet

Think of it as a mental gastric bypass surgery, where people staple their stomachs to feel full after just a few bites. This will take a lot of self-control, though, as you will only be consuming five bites of whatever meal you have.


I recommend that you follow this diet:

Breakfast: Five bites of oatmeal
Lunch: Five bites of a sandwich
Dinner: Five bites of pasta

It’s best to consume a lot of water or zero-calorie drinks to stay energized and hydrated while doing the diet. Freshly-squeezed lemon juice can work great, too!


The Vegan Model Diet

The Vegan Model Diet

The vegan model diet is another effective and restrictive diet suitable for those who follow the vegan lifestyle. Think of it as the usual meal plans models would follow to get the flat stomach without any meat products!

Breakfast: One reduced-calorie bread and two cups of black coffee with zero-calorie sweeteners
Lunch: One large apple
Dinner: Eight baby carrots

The total number of calories consumed is only 200 calories. Follow this for a week, and you will be able to lose weight quickly. You can substitute the meals with different fruits and vegetables if desired.


The Ana Atkins Diet

This is a personal twist on the Atkins diet, which is similar to the keto diet. Just make sure that you avoid any keto diet mistakes and consume too many carbs from fruits!


Breakfast: Three-egg white omelette
Snack: Baked white fish fillet
Lunch: Roast Chicken drumstick and a cup of salad leaves
Snack: 50 grams of prawns with garlic and chili
Dinner: Grilled Sirloin steak and a cup of salad leaves


You might think that this is a lot to consume, but it’s quite useful in burning fat quickly. By day three, you have less appetite, and your body is using ketones for energy.

The Russian’s Gymnast Diet

Irina Tschachina is a 5’6 Russian gymnast who only weighs 99 pounds. Wonder how she does it? Here’s a diet you can follow for ultimate weight loss and health. Those who follow this diet for a week can lose up to ten pounds!

Breakfast: A glass of apple or orange juice
Lunch: Fruit salad with a glass of fruit juice
Dinner: Green apple and a glass of non-carbonated water

Make sure that your fruit juices are freshly squeezed and free from any artificial sweeteners.


The Baby Food Diet

The Baby Food Diet

This is a pretty exciting diet, as it entails you to consume baby food, which is rich in vitamins and nutrients. I recommend that you purchase organic and vegetable-based baby food, which has fewer calories and more vitamins.

You can have baby food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or, you can have an average healthy breakfast and consume baby food for lunch and dinner. Make sure that you get the 80-gram jars, which are made for weaning babies.


But do take note that these are only short-term diets that should not be done as a lifestyle change. There are many different side effects to pro-ana diets, as you are consuming fewer calories than your body needs, which causes some health risks in the long run.


Bonus Tips on Keeping Up With a Pro-Ana Diet

Pro-Ana Diet Tips

Now that you’re familiar with the different pro-ana diets, what are other ways you can keep it consistent? Here are some bonus tips to follow:

• Make sure to always keep track of your calories by using apps or other online tools available. Don’t take in more calories than what you burn to ensure weight loss.

• It’s better to consume a healthy breakfast to have better-eating decisions for the day ahead.

• Water is one of the crucial parts of the diet, as it doesn’t only fill you up but keeps you energized when restricting your calories. However, you should avoid drinking water in a single session, since this causes water retention.

• Small meals are also recommended, which can have the body think that you’re eating enough to stay satiated and energized throughout the day.

• Like mentioned, these are aggressive diets, and you will be deficient in many nutrients from the calorie restriction. Because of this, it’s imperative to take in your vitamins. These will compensate for what you don’t consume.

• Sleeping is essential to gain energy and level out your cravings and appetite. If you sleep less, it can lead to lack of energy and hunger, as well as a slow metabolism!

• If you want to stay encouraged while following a diet, then it’s best to find a diet buddy or to look in the mirror, which keeps you motivated.

• You can keep track of your macronutrients with online macro calculators to ensure you’re eating the right foods, in the right ratios, for optimal weight loss.

    you understand that “pro-ana” is pro-anorexia, right? like these are eating disorder tactics.

  2. S says

    Uh excuse me? Why would you promote anorexia? These “diets” are not healthy at all and are the first step to developing an eating disorder. How about promoting a healthy lifestyle. You can also lose weight when you eat healthy (and enough!) and exercise you’ll just have to be patient but waiting is better than having an eating disorder. I’m shocked honestly.

    1. Herman Shermits says

      Um, why are u here reading about it then? Just go on! Worry about yourself.

  3. Julia says

    You are promoving eating disorders. Eating this much is sick. You wont live long eating less than 500 kcal per day. This is shit

  4. crissy says

    The people posting about how disgusting this post is and how it promotes Anorexia. Do you guys realize that “not eating enough” doesn’t cause Anorexia, Anorexia causes people to not eat enough. And I just wonder how you got to this post in the first place, did you Google “Pro Ana” diets or did you just Google Diets? I wonder as well if you consider cleanses disorder eating or are those actually effective?

  5. Im says

    This is disgusting, don’t tell people how to get an eating disorder, don’t promote a grossly unhealthy calorie amount and diet form.

    1. Gab says

      i think its fine idk

  6. Teddy says

    Ooooh! Sounds effective! I try on starting the Rainbow Diet! Dunno how long I’ll be on this diet for though.

  7. Rose Brandenburg says

    ahh ok.. I have a registered nutritionist … Ahh NONE of what was posted here is listed on the FDA approved eating habits that she has helped me find.
    First off I see NO protein on this list.. or not much.
    how exactly do you expect a healthy person to produce muscle mass as well as white and red blood cells with out enough protein?
    I see no regimented purportions here.. I see the five bite thing, i see the rain bow thing, but i see no real structure on how to re educate one’s self on proper nutrition consumption for ones body type and mass.
    Also I see nothing here about a body density test or a fat retention test.
    Science tells us that not everyone’s body is the same. Indeed genetically we are all unique. There for in order to maintain healthy weight loss. One MUST have both of these tests.
    The first test tells your nutritionist and MD how much you are supposed to weigh..what your ideal weight is, taking into account both the amount of water in your body, as well as the density of your skeleton and the mass and density of your organs. Once that is figured out you can compare your ideal weight next to what you weigh and see how much you need to loose to match it.
    The second test is a genetic work up, based on your individual chemistry, determining what specific element causes you to gain weight.
    It is proven via many, many studies that no two people gain weight in the same way. So for each person there is a specific factor that causes them to gain weight. In many cases it has been proven to be neither calories, nor carbs that cause a person to gain weight. Some times they have poor reactions to grains, sometimes to specific breeds of carbs, most often it turns out to be saturated fats.
    So loosing weight is as simple as getting a bit more exercise and cutting that out of your diet.
    No radical changes to your eating is needed, you can exchange the method you cook food for one that contains little to no saturated fats. An air fryer for example, is a delightful way to keep eating your healthy meats while adding no additional fat to them. They cook in their own steam and come out perfectly fried, no added fats needed.
    Hydration is also SUPER important. If your body does not have enough fluid to process the fat out of you, as you loose it, then you WILL NOT loose it. It will be retained because your body needs water, and will use those fat cells to store it so you do not die of dehydration.
    While I am sure these diets have their good points, I would as a professional my self, urge anyone on here to seek professional help if you decide you need to loose weight.
    have the two tests done and discover what causes you to gain weight, and what you can eliminate from your diet to help you. Usually your doctor can find away to do this with out sacrificing much of anything in the way of food and or taste.
    Loosing weight is a good thing … I have gone on a reasonable, slow healthy diet in the last two years and I am proud to say that I am down from a size 34 to a size 16.
    I have not had to give up one iota of taste or stop eating the foods i love, just change the way they are prepared and get a lil more exercise, Fencing and a more active job.
    Best wishes to all that wish to get healthy, stay safe and see your MD and Nutritionist.
