10 CRAZIEST Diet Trends EVER


– Hey, have you heard of
the latest diet craze? It’s called sleep-cercize. All you have to do is go to sleep and get a huge workout in in your dreams and then thrown in a few
vegetables in real life and presto, a slimmer you! Oh you, you thought that was ridiculous? And you’d be right, but it’s just as crazy as some of the real insane
methods that people are using right now, or think they’re using, you get my point. If you’ve ever heard of
those crazy diet trends and you wonder if they actually work, well more than a few are
likely to be on this list, so let’s jump right into it. Here are the 10 craziest diet
trends that ever existed. Number one is the Chewing Diet slash Fletcher Diet. (gnaws tongue) I can feel myself losing
the calories already. The first strange diet on this list was introduced Horace
Fletcher in the early 1990s. His diet plan recommended
chewing each mouthful of food at least 32 times or until it
became completely liquefied and anything that couldn’t be ingested by tilting your head back and letting it run down your throat, would be spat out. Surprisingly, there are actually some proven scientific benefits
behind using this diet as taking your time to eat
will actually help satisfy your hunger and allow you to eat less, so the diet actually did
help some people lose weight but I’m sure that the incessant
chewing helped some people lose more annoying dinner
partners than pounds. (gnaws tongue) I’m down, lost five pounds. (gnaws tongue) Number two is the Cabbage Soup Diet. (groans) Cabbage… The Cabbage Soup Diet involves
eating lots of cabbage soup over the course of a week. Cabbage soup is very low in calories and can be high in salt,
depending on the recipe. The diet allows for a
few fruits here and there but mostly you’d only be eating cabbage. Though this crash diet has helped some lose up to 10 pounds over
the course of a week, most of it was lost from
water weight and not fat, meaning that it’s a
very temporary solution. The cabbage soup diet comes with a list of side effects that
include loss of energy, light headedness, and gas,
as well as having to deal with eating soggy bland cabbage. (groans) I think I’ll pass. Number three is the Caveman Diet. Hooga booga. The Caveman Diet takes its name from our paleolithic human ancestors, who ate very simple meals
more than 10,000 years ago. The diet consists of
items that may be cooked like meats, fish, fruits, and nuts, but removes any foods that
are produced or refined in any way like grains, oil, salt, sugars, or dairy products. The diet was created to align us with the health of prehistoric humans and reduce the possibility of infection with sickness and disease by cutting out commonly eaten process foods,
so if you love wheat products, this might not be the dieting evolution that you want to be a part of. Breads, I want more breads. Number four is the Shangri-La Diet. The Shangri-La Diet was introduced by psychologist Seth Roberts in 2006 as a way to help people control their urge to eat large portions of food. (grumbles) The method involves ingesting
up to three tablespoons of extra lite olive oil
and up to two tablespoons of sugar water. This is to give your body
calories that aren’t associated with any tasty and flavorful foods. Supposedly, the more you practice this, the more that your mind
will disassociate calories with tasty food, therefore
making you crave them less and less. Essentially, drinking
the oil and sugar water will just suppress your
appetite and make you want to eat less at meal times
which makes you lose weight. Ah this diet came out in 2006, and Men In Black came out in 1997, which makes me think that this guy got the idea from Edgar the Bug. Edgar, you’re skin is
hanging off your bones. Sugar and water (chuckles),
more, more, yeah. Number five is Luigi Cornaro’s Diet. Luigi Cornaro was an
Italian nobleman and writer in the late 1400s. He was in pretty bad
health at the age of 40 until he met with doctors who advised him to end his life of drinking
and binging on food. They recommended he limit his diet down to 350 grams of food a day
and 414 milliliters of wine, that’s very specific. After following the doctor’s advice, Carnaro began to actually feel better and within a year, he was back to a state of perfect health. Apparently his diet only
consisted of a small portion of meat, a small tomato soup, bread, and an egg yolk. But even with such little food, his body thrived until he lived until a very old age of 105. His small calorie diet has been
taken up by many since then, but no one has quiet
been able to replicate Cornaro’s astounding results. Realistically though, who
wants to live ’til 105. I can’t hear or see anybody, but I’m assuming I’m still alive. Number six is the Vision Diet, not be confused with the see food diet which is when you see food, you eat it. The Vision Diet was introduced
in Japan in the late 2000s in the form of wearing
a pair of sunglasses with blue tinted lenses as a way to curb people’s
appetites through changing the color of the food that they see. The reason behind the change of color was that the foods that are in the
yellow or red spectrum color are allegedly more appetizing, but if you change those
colors to a cooler blue color, it would remove the desire
because the blue food doesn’t look as good. Yeah, there’s no real proof
behind the weight loss benefits of this diet other than you may just think that you’re gorging yourself with food made by Smurfs, which
kind of sounds amazing. Number seven is the Cotton Ball Diet. The Cotton Ball Diet literally
involves eating cotton balls. That’s it, next one? No? You want more detail? Okay! Apparently, cotton balls
cause you to feel full but without the calories of actual food. Cotton balls are actually
very high in fiber and low in calories, but
eating them regularly while on this diet will cause big issues with your digestive system as well as deprive you of the nutrients that you need from, you know, real food. Dieters would either swallow
the cotton balls dry, (gags) or they would place
them in gelatin and eat them. One benefit that isn’t mentioned is that you’ll always get a laugh after you eat a meal if you
say that you’re stuffed. (chuckles) But doonze, I’m sorry, that was awful. Number eight is the Sleeping Beauty Diet. The Sleeping Beauty Diet
is so easy to follow you can do it with your
eyes closed, seriously. Sleeping pills and other sedatives are the main ingredient to this diet, which recommends that you pretty
much drug yourself to sleep and try not to wake up
as often as possible so as to not eat, AKA coma diet. Believe it or not, this diet was taken up by the rock and roll legend
himself, Elvis Presley, during his later years in an effort to take off some of the
pounds before his tour. There’s a hunk a hunk of burning sleep. While the diet does allow you to catch up on all that missed sleep,
it also forces your body to burn off some of your stored calories since you aren’t eating anything at all, ’cause you’re sleeping. Sleeping the pounds away
may sound like a dream but depriving your body of nutrients can cause some serious health nightmares. Number nine is the Sun Diet. This strange diet comes from
China where a number of women stand outdoor with sunglasses,
veils, and umbrellas while they stare at the sun
for 44 minutes straight. Oh well that sounds like fun, let me just stand, I’m blind. This may seem like an
odd practice and it is, but according to the Sun Diet, staring at the sun for a prolonged period will help to restore
nutrients to your body through the sun’s energy. (grumbles) The diet also claims to improve
eye sight and sleep quality. Improve eye sight? Using the sun as an
entire meal replacement has helped some people shed pounds but at the cost of
having massive sun spots in their vision and increasing their risk of developing skin cancer through exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Let’s also consider the,
you know, blindness. And number 10 is the Tapeworm Diet. (gags) We end our list of bizarre diets with the one that could literally
make your stomach crawl. (gasps) The Tapeworm Diet is a
fairly easy diet to start and then maintains since
the only real work involved is to eat meat infested with tapeworms. Allow me to explain. The tapeworm is ingested
while it’s in its infancy and then it’s allowed to
grow and attach itself to the inside of your intestines where it steals its nutrients from the food that you’re digesting. The dangers of this
diet include everything, but also the risk of
the tapeworm producing its own waste inside
of you causing nausea, diarrhea, and bloating. And if the tapeworm reproduces, it can lead to more serious effects like, I dunno, seizures. The tapeworm diet has
allegedly helped some people dropped one to two pounds a week, and it has actually created businesses in parts of Mexico and Africa where tapeworm farms are run for tourists looking to get some parasitic assistance for their caloric intake. No thanks, I don’t want worms
