A practice which has recently come to light with the exposure of pro-anorexia websites in the media... DRUNKOREXIA refers to the act of restricting food intake/calories by day so one can party and get drunk at night without fear of gaining weight from the extra calories of the alcohol. Generally practiced by body-conscious or anorexic young women, who are often alcoholics.

The danger of this practice is that there is no food present in the stomach to slow the absorption of alcohol into the system, which can result in the person becoming intoxicated too quickly, passing out, vomiting, or getting alcohol poisoning. Those side effects, coupled with the long-term effects of anorexia on the body, can lead to death.

A newly recognized trend among girls and young women who view their anorexia or food restriction as a choice and/or a lifestyle, and not as a disease. Often abbreviated as "pro-ana".

Many websites and YouTube videos advocating the pro-anorexia lifestyle and encouraging solidarity amongst anorexics have been springing up recently, causing concern to health professionals and parents who fear that children might be easily influenced to "become anorexic" by them.

There is a similar pro-bulimia movement which is often lumped together with the anorexic community, called "pro-mia" or "pro-ana/mia". Some websites are directed at providing support and friendship for all eating disorder sufferers in general (including overeating), or people who engage in self-harming behaviours such as cutting.

Most of these websites claim to provide support only, and not encouragement to start or maintain an eating disorder.
Candace: "I'm pro-anorexia. I restrict my food intake. I have a strong desire to be thin, and I don't consider myself to be mentally ill. I know exactly what I'm doing. Therefore my anorexia is a way of life, not an illness."

The sound of ravenous eating. Popularized by the character Cookie Monster on Sesame street, it is now used commonly in speech, especially among younger people. Cookie Monster exclaims "OM NOM NOM NOM" when gobbling down cookies (and whatever else goes in his mouth).

You can "om nom" on things besides food... for example, play-eating babies' toes to make them laugh.

omnomnomnom (dot) com is a pop culture website where people submit their own silly photos that have been manipulated in Paint to resemble monsters eating various things, including people and pets.
