Thank God I'm back to work finally! BUT, it comes with a price.
I had to have lunch on-set today with my cast/crew. I HATE catered craft services!! And P.A.'s who think you're so frail and thin that you must be fed on every fucking "take 5." Sometimes I just want to scream, "SOD OFF!!!"
But I don't, of course. Instead, I'm obligated to smile and be marveled by the generosity of the spread and say, “Wow! Everything looks so good, it’s so hard to choose!” and then pile a little bit of everything on my plate. Why can these people never get a clue and start making some healthy shit? I ate a few cherry tomatoes with feta cheese (drizzled with olive oil), and a little bit of salad, and had about a bite each of the fish, asparagus, roast beef, and steak fries. Ugh. After eating so little for so long, my stomach has shrunk and I got real bloated real fast. Of course, my lack of eating did not go unnoticed and made for some real awkward moments in the second half of the day.
I hate myself for not being more clever with the excuses. As much as I love my job, I hate my career. That’s enough for today.
In the words of Dr. Horrible: “Emails!”
Anonymous/L wants to know some “good foods to eat, some of my common meals that are healthy and low-cal so she can start a 2-4-6-8 diet.
Love ya, girlie, but you’re asking for diet advice from someone who prefers NOT TO EAT. Do some googling, there are loads of pro-ana lists out there that include watermelon, celery, sugar-free popsicles and jello. You just have to find whatever works for you. Something that will satisfy your cravings (so you don’t binge) without eating too much. For me, I look for high-fiber, low-fat and low-cal foods. When labels fail, use sites like nutitiondata.com and calorie-count.com to find info.
P.S. I’ve done that diet too. I tried once when a week was 2-0-6-0-4-8-0, and once when a week was 2-6-4-8-0-0-0. I liked the second way better, but it’s different for everyone. Depends on what your schedule is like.
Anonymous has tried every diet and nothing seems to work and is now considering turning to ana as well. She wants to know, would I ever advise another aspiring actress to do the same?
No, I would never ADVISE someone to “try anorexia.” Who in their right mind would? Anorexia kills.
(PSA quota for the week? Check.)
That being said… I would, however, recommend you keep trying different methods until you find the one that works for you. And that means NOTHING is off-limits. Catch my drift? If it works for you, gives you the results you want, don’t let me or anyone else discourage you.
Peace, ma-cheries. Starve on.
