A diet review of almost 1500 diets was done by a team from Diets in Review. Here are the most ridiculous diets of 2010!
The hCG Diet
The gist: Daily injections of the female pregnancy hormone, with a prescription via a doctor, or even more sketchy, ordered off the Internet, all while eating a 500-calorie diet.
My take: WTF? I'm all up for the injections...genius....but 500 calories!!! You know what you could eat for 500 calories!!!! An apple, 1 cup of rice, 1 slice of 2% cheese, 8oz of milk and a 100 Calorie pack to top it off. Can you imagine eating that day after day? You'd be brain dead! Ridiculous.
here is what I found....If you are currently using the tapeworm diet, high-fives all around. That is what I call commitment!
The Twinkie Diet
The gist: Live off of grocery store snack cakes, and supplement with a few canned veggies so that you can go public with your fad and become famous.
My take: GENIUS! Why didn't I think of this? Ugh, I was so meant to be famous....this could have been my way in. Damn you Kansas State Nutrition Professor.
