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

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-anorexia 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, there 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 plan models would follow to get a 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 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 omelet
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

 

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 a 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.

 

Wrapping It Up

The pro-ana diet may be a bit aggressive. However, it is possible with the right tips and healthy food consumption. That way, you won’t have a problem with keeping the pounds off in the long run.

  1. 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.

    • “you wont live long eating less that 500kcal per day”

      That’s the point. going Pro Ana is a lifestyle and, sure maybe you wont live long or what ever but once youre in the mindset of pro ana there is no point trying to tell someone not to do it because im sure 98% of the time no one will listen 🙂

  2. 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?

    • Maybe there´re people here who want to get answers because someone in their family (perhaps a sibling? maybe?) has anorexia/bulimia… You don´t have to be so judgemental, you don´t know people´s stories

    • Stop complaining, you guys (who are complaining) want attention. How did you get here? The same way as everyone else. By searching up pro Ana diet. I get that you want to help, but this is not the right way.

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

  4. 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?
    Second
    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.

    • Maybe you should make your own article about awesome healthy diets lol. Then when people want to be healthy they can read yours cause I’m pretty sure anyone looking at a Pro Ana diet could care less about whether its the “healthier choice”

      More like I’m a fat cow and that’s disgusting and a health risk! I COULD DIE from my morbid obesity. There are many articles and cute activists like you speaking about how “Disgusting” it is to be my weight. And all you people wanna be thin to, its everywhere movies magazines every store I go to reminds me how fat and sick I am and how thin “is the healthy way to go” just as your spitting garbage about how to be thin and healthy HA. People are people, things only have meaning if you give it to them, we all grow shit and die. The stuff in between is unimportant. Ask yourself, in billions of years when our planet doesn’t exist and every human is gone, will it matter how many died of anorexia or for being lumps of fat?

  5. It’s called the pro-ana diet!
    If you don’t want to read it.. Leave the site!!!!
    Maybe just maybe there are individuals who tried everything else including your stupid dietician “healthy diet” and guess what even went for a full blood count because … Oh wait also nothing wrong there? So we are suppose to be fat???? Screw this! What ever works, I have to be the one who looks at my fat ass the whole day! And yes anorexia can kill you. At least it will only take 2 to carry the coffin and not 20 pushing it on a stroller because your tooooooo fat to carry!

  6. I have been struggeling with eating disorders for about 6 years, and honestly i’m shocked. I usualy google pro-ana diets as a way to trigger my disordered thinking and to calm myself down in a way (I know, kind of fucked up) but i have never encouterd a website stating that these diets are alright and that vitamins compensate for missing nutrients because they absolutely do not and these diets are not healthy in any way. When I was an insecure 14 year old I read articles like this and they got me started on calorie counting. Calorie counting can trigger eating disorders, and so can these diets as they did for me. The lack of essential nutrients that you can NOT fully compensate with drug store vitamins and basically just the lack of calories triggers disorderd thinking as your brain can’t function properly. An eating disorder never really leaves you, and this article promoting a serious mental disorder like anorexia is just disgusting to me.

  7. I am in my 60’s, have struggled with being underweight since I was a child. I literally have little appetite. The older I have become the more natural things go wrong with body as it will with all of us. Over the years the lowest I have been was 72 lbs. I was devastated. If and when something goes wrong with your body if you have starved it, your body will not have the resources it needs to repair itself. Trust me, I’m an old wise woman….lol. I’ve been a skinny mini all my life. It is not a good thing. I have a daughter who struggles with actual eating disorders ( probably because she couldn’t understand how I stayed so small. I came to this site looking for a menu to GAIN weight not lose. I am now at 91 lbs and constantly exhausted because a body doesn’t function well at this low weight.

  8. Thank you for these! I appreciate these, people should not look at these if they don’t like it. Some of us actually WANT this info. As a guy on the chubbier end, I appreciate this. I am trying fasting and eating healthier foods in smaller portions. So far can’t complan 😀 can’t wait to see more and more results!! #MaleThinspo #AnaMyGirlfriend

  9. this is disgusting are you joking ? i’ve had an eating disorder since i was 12 because of shit like this normalising eating disorder behaviours and the fact that you stated these diets mimic anorexic behaviours and are completely aware you’re promoting eating disorders is so horrible. can’t believe something like this was published

  10. Trigger warning!

    this is absolutely disgusting, as someone who has struggled with eating disorders for years, I would NEVER promote its and make it seem like a healthy fun choice. It’s actual shit and ruins your health and mental health on so many levels, and it’s the mental disorder with highest mortality rate, as in it causes more deaths than actual suicide. Let that sink in. I hope this will be taken down, it’s disgusting and I don’t see how anyone can defend this. Yes, it’s one thing to support other people that are going trough these things online, but to promote it? Gross.

    • If you find it so DISGUSTING then why are you even on this site! Why did you even look through the diets?!!! You know what anyone who doesn’t like the site, why are you on it? Just get off the site

  11. I googled diets. This came up. I’ve had an eating disorder since I was 12, I didn’t even read the diets. Pro ana is why I have a disorder. Stop

  12. Good lord, there are so many things wrong with this article. I am a female model, with a past history with anorexia.

    1. These diets are made and used by individuals with mental illnesses. Do not advertise them to anyone else unless you want them to develop an eating disorder.
    2. These diets are serious and private to the anorexic community. How dare you exploit them to non-anorexics like some fun diets.
    3. I am a model, Dipshit. Models don’t eat like that. How dare you portray models as anorexics that eat that way. The few models that do eat that way are not doing it for their job/agency but for their mental illness.

    Shame on you. It’s people like you that promote eating dosorders.

    • Actually its people like YOU Promoting eating disorders. Filling the pages with your thin bodies and unrealistic standards. How many little girls and grown woman have to be exposed to skinny chick models setting the standards convincing men that full figured woman shouldn’t be attractive, puke.

  13. I like the ABC diet personally even though I have never been completely successful with it but it works miracles and I love pro ANA everything so thank you for this site!!

  14. Everyone on here showing hate, you may think its disgusting and all, but how did you get here in the first place? maybe you were just doing research, but a lot of you were probably looking for weight loss solutions and severe diets. i think a lot of these are disgusting and yet i survive on 2 coffee’s and an apple a day and pretend i’m better. if you don’t like these diets, please just move on and find one for YOU. the person who wrote this may be suffering from Anorexia and telling them the way they eat is disgusting is only going to make them worse.

  15. Well, I really do not know where to start. But first to all you ones who have spewed disgust, I really think your behind the door. Its too late for you to express your disgust to ones here who use this site. YOUR TOO LATE. These people either already know they are at risk and are doing it because of a need to. Or they are in that mindset already and they need more professional help than so called experts that come on here to negatively deride them.
    I wonder if these same people get on 600 lb life sites and spew their disgust too.
    These are not choices, they are eating disorders and have underlying reasons.
    My story is this….I am 60 years old. In my early to late teens, I became anorexic
    Now because of sooth sayers and so called experts, I am obese. So please, we dont need derrogatry comments

  16. These diets are absolutely disgusting. Please stop. And to people who think this won’t cause some to develop eating disorders; most eating disorders started with healthy diets to lose a bit of weight. I can’t imagine how much damage this is causing. You can literally die from these diets from multiple things like low blood sugar, low blood pressure and even heart attacks- and no don’t think it’d be fine because you’ll only do it for “a few days”, you’d be surprised how quickly these things can happen. Even if you follow through and not die, you’ll feel horrible, constantly cold, your hair will fall out and your skin will dry up. You won’t be able to do anything. All you’ll think about is food food food until you eventually binge.

    For the love of everything good, if you have an ounce of self-respect, don’t follow any of these diets! Being skinny doesn’t matter if you’re dead. Love yourself first, losing weight won’t help you.

  17. I dig it. Great article. I googled pro Anna baby food diets lol, because I dig it. Thanks

    As for the nay sayers, activism is cute and all but this is one of the least “disgusting” things I’ve seen on the internet. Trust me, there are many demented and disgusting things. This is not. Don’t blame others for your issues with Ana. Truly the world is full of victims, I get the whole mental disorders shit but we control ourselves. Others don’t control you. There are many how to murder and how to rape and get away with it articles and I guarantee those people who listen and “fall prey” get in the same amount of trouble blaming it on some website.

    Regardless this is America, freedom of speech is real, and free will is everywhere. Chose to read and then be pissed lol its just silly. Haters. Spewing hate.

  18. For all of you guys saying do cause people to have anorexia……
    You can’t give someone anorexia. Starving yourself and anorexia are not the same.. it may seem like it, but that’s probably because you don’t have an eating disorder or you’re not an Ed experienced healthcare professional.
