9 Things Skinny Girls do (& don't do!)

Updated: Sep 5, 2019



No matter how The Gospel Preaches... "your beauty lies inside," most of you ladies just want to talk about your bellies, tits and ass!... oh, and botox! this one is for you no-nonsense, straight to the peanut butter, non-intellectual strong female types.



"When curvy girls talk about skinny girls in a negative light, you can't retaliate because if you do you are being "rude." -Anonymous


Yep! that's damn right.. Hehe...


Disclaimer: This blog does not intend to upset, make fun of or laugh at mental health issues. It is intended to make you smile today by making light of a heavy situation - ( err..pun unintended!)


So let's get cracking to the top 9 things skinny girls do (and don't do) that differentiate the 'you' from' me' or 'me' from 'you'? Honestly, It's really all relative depending on what part of the globe you are trotting. #eyeroll!


1. They don't Use Weighing Scales


Why would they? Skinny girls don't feel guilty about their last meal. You do when you overeat, then get on your scale and impress yourself with additions. A skinny girl does not need a weighing scale, Period! She is on the other side of the equation--subtracting food from her plate, fats from her diet, carbs from... (nah! you won't find bread in her dorm!), remove fat girl friends who put pressure on them to eat... and trust me she knows how to eat, (maybe even better than you do), she is just not hungry the same way your carb-loving ass is!


Skinny girls are more concerned about looking healthy (read: skinny) than about weight in lbs. She will prioritize a mirror as an indication of weight-gain over a scale.


2. NO CARBS?


Is 'no carbs' the true mantra of yoga mat carrying skinny girls? They certainly make it seem like it is, humming their OM's all the way to skinny ville. I will confess that I have said the "no carbs for me" mantra at home with my fiancé at dinner, or during Fight season when I have to cut tremendous weight and get in the ring. I've even done it shortly after stuffing my face with a big bowl of the best rice and beans snack burrito in the kitchen... I know, deceitful isn't it.. but I'm a damn good cook! And I love food...


We have all seen skinny girls eat carbs. They do. But they may consider it a cheat meal. Especially, if a fat ass is putting pressure on them! They don't discriminate when it comes to drinking. They like to drink their carbs... definitely a double standard there.


3. WON'T EAT WHAT YOU EAT


A Skinny girl won't eat what you eat. How do you think she got here. If you are full of big, juicy love handles, you probably know why... (and it's not because she is afraid of love)! Ahh, skinny girls are just funny that way, they tend to eat when you and I... don't eat and... are not watching. Some of them clearly have mental health issues that make them binge and then do the 'stick your finger in your mouth' trick. If you know one, tell her if she doesn't stop that soon all her beautiful red hair will fall out.


Binge eating is a serious health condition. Young people between the ages of 15 and 24 with anorexia have 10 times the risk of dying compared to their same-aged peers (1).


What should you do when someone you care about suffers from an Eating Disorder? Try to lose your own visceral fat weight and let her psychologist treat her. If you are reading this post, you probably 'got issues!too :).. jk.


4. They Keep Healthy Snacks In Their Cabinet


Have you ever entered your friend's home, asked for more sugar for your tea only to be told she has no sugar. No Sugar Period. This was my experience. Needless to say, my dear friend was skinny as a toothpick as well. Some go to extreme measures to cut cravings.


According to Jessica Migala and Nicole Natale's parallel blog on 16 Stay-Skinny Secrets From Women Who Never Diet, 'there is nothing wrong with snacking if it is done right. Skinny girls stock up on healthy go-snacks available between their meals'.


Some routine go-to snacks available between meals that are miserly and less that 100-calories are cottage cheese and cantaloupe, three crackers with cheese, fourteen almonds, blueberry smoothie, baked apple and eight baby carrots with hummus.


"Making a routine of having go-to snacks available for between meals is a pro tip to maintaining healthy meal portions and properly fueling your body (2)."


5. Eat Lean protein (11% Fat or Less)


When it comes to new science on fat consumption, skinny girls seem to have been light years ahead of the research. To be fair, both athletes and skinny girls understand the importance of incorporating lean protein into one's diet offers a myriad of health benefits. Protein also has a higher thermic effect of food (TEF). It keeps you fuller longer, keeps your metabolism working optimally, builds bone, muscle, skin cells and reduces the amount of food you eat all day.


A 2005 Johns Hopkins Medicine experiment concluded that a diet higher in protein caused a 21 percent reduction in a person's risk for cardiovascular disease, improved cholesterol levels and lowered blood pressure (4).

Athletes and Skinny girls know that a high protein diet provides better health benefits than a diet with higher consumption of carbohydrates.


6. they Say They Are full when they are still damn hungry!


I am thinking of a specific girlfriend when I list this point whom I have observed over the years say the same phrase at the start of a meal. She would say she was full (Err..latte ordering meal meeting again!) then proceed to ogle at my plate of food, watch every morsel of food as it entered my mouth with an eagle eye then comment on the food... (in a good way tho!)


It was obvious she hadn't eaten.


Me: "Do you want some..? Come on, have some!"

Her: "Mmm.. O.K maybe... just a tiny, little bite!"


And then my meal for one would progress into an equally shared meal with my pleasant friend. Bite.. by bite...we alternate like a sweet couple.


Has this ever happened to you?


7. They read labels


It's hard to catch a skinny girl with bad, junk food in her mouth. They don't eat toxic pre-packaged shit that came off a 7/11 shelf. They just know beef-jerky is protein and better. Vegetarian? How many ingredients in that apple? One? okie dokie, I'll take it!


The cuurrent estimates of obesity in the United States indicate that 68% of adults (Flegel et al. 2010) and 32% of children (Ogden et al. 2010) are overweight or obese (5).


The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act (NLEA) of 1990, implemented in 1994, provided the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with the authority to require nutrition labeling on packaged foods a relevant component of public health policies (5).


8. overestimate how much they eat (you underestimate!)


Underestimating how much you eat can be an environmental hazard to your waistline, especially, if you are already over your Perfect BMI.


It's pretty apparent that some of us, are in 'denial' and underestimate how much we eat, and then look at our waistlines like it's a Sudoku puzzle to solve. According to the National Health Service (NHS) in the U.K, Researchers looking into the link between sugar consumption and obesity found a "huge gap" between overweight people's self-reported sugar consumption and the reality (7)."


If you have lying eyes (trust me I do), do yourself a favor and serve your meals out in a tea cup (enter: portion control). Don't worry, you will get to eat several tiny meals throughout the day-- its much better for your gut.


9. eat 2 cubes of super dark chocolate a day!


For all you deprivation ninja's out there that don't ever want to glance at chocolate and demonized anyone who indulges in sweets, I've got news for you old timers!-- A new generation of skinny girls are shuttling bars of 75% or more dark premium cocoa chocolate into their snack bins. This is actually A-O.K!


Dark chocolate contains potent flavanols that can promote healthy blood vessel flow and are good for you.

Scientists have proven a small dose of 70% cacao dark chocolate can decrease your chance of heart attack and stroke by nearly 40 percent. Interestingly, dark chocolate demonstrates the same blood-thinning benefits as aspirin, but without the harmful side effects. Today, experts recommend a serving of 1 to 2 ounces, or 30-60g of 70% or more dark cocoa to reap the benefits (9).


It can also help you lose weight.


"A recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed that frequent chocolate consumption was associated with lower body mass index (BMI) (10)."


So, in conclusion, if you are reading this post you either a) think you are overweight b) Crazy! Why do you think you look fat? or c) a Skinny girl who is looking to lose more weight--don't.
