Since Hab is probably right I'll choose something else, just because I have no idea.
#6?

I like the simplicity of these definitions... makes it Sooooooooo much harder to guess. And given the hesitancy and assorted choices it looks like I did indeed choose a good word.

A partial parsing, which may suggest the truth, or deceive and entice by false similarity, or neither of the above:
-- starving - as in "fasting"
-- obsessive - invoking "fastidious"
-- ascetic - again "fastidious"
-- unmoving - as in "made fast"
-- not hungry - despite "fasting"
-- difficult to carry - "made fast" again
and that's more than half the entries. Does that make them all red herrings? Or all but one? No wonder we're uncertain!

Good word!

The word is only as good as the definitions supplied and this word attracted a lot of good, short, distinctive suggestions which is why , when I added the real word I also kept it short.

I had decided on 5 until Hab chimed in. It is probably wrong - I imagine it is 10 since two of you chose it. But I'll stick with 5.
