Outrageous diets are as effective as get-rich-quick schemes. Neither work because you can't get results without hard work. But no matter how many people fail at either, more line up thinking it will work out differently for them. So far I have yet to meet anyone who lost weight or got rich doing either, but I won't put it down as never.
Today, I wanted to highlight a few of the more outrageous diets I've heard of:
1) The Cabbage Soup Diet - The name says it all, literally. The only thing you eat for 7 days is cabbage soup. Yuk!
2) The Tapeworm Diet - Again with the name being literal. This one does actually have you swallow a tapeworm that lives inside you for 10 weeks. After the 10 weeks, you take prescription medicine to kill the littler bugger.
3) The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You To Know About - This gem of a "diet" has you getting injections of pregnant women's pee. Yeah, I'm thinking I wish I didn't know about this one.
So anyone try any of these? Know anyone who did? Or maybe you've got something more outrageous to share!
