10 extreme and bizarre diets

  1. Are you convinced that taking diet pills and drugs, starving yourself and exercising for hours on end belong to the category of extreme and bizarre diets? Then you've probably never heard of the tapeworm diet, the bible diet, the breatharianism diet, the cotton wool diet, and all of the other diets that we will take a closer look at in this article.

The tapeworm diet

  1. The tapeworm diet is as nasty as its name suggests. This extreme diet requires you to get a tapeworm infected and then let the tapeworm grow in your body until it reaches maturity. The diet is efficient because the tapeworm attaches to your intestines and extracts all the nutrients from your food. Supporters claim that you can easily lose several kilos per week with it. The diet is especially popular in America, but because it is illegal to import tapeworms into the United States, people travel en masse to Mexico and Africa where there are special tapeworm farms where you can get infected. On these farms, the cows are deliberately infected with tapeworms so that their meat can later be used for human consumption.

The Bible Diet

  1. The Bible diet takes the limited consumption of forbidden and immodest foods as its starting point. These include pork, bacon, ostrich, ham, sausage, emu, fish and seafood. Prayer is also central to this diet. The day must begin and end with a prayer that is combined with special physical exercises. It is also recommended to pray whenever you get hungry. The main promoter of this diet is Jordan S. Rubin. He claims that following this diet helped him overcome Crohn's disease. Jordan S. Rubin now has his own company, Garden of Life, which specializes in slimming products and nutritional supplements.

The burrito diet

  1. A certain Justin Hall managed to lose more than 40 pounds by eating 1 burrito with jalapeños every day for three months. A burrito is a tortilla filled with beans and meat. Normally this Mexican dish is packed with calories, but eating only lettuce and fruit outside of that single burrito limits the daily calorie intake while still allowing you to enjoy a treat.

The sleep diet

  1. This bizarre diet boils down to sleeping a lot. The principle is simple: if you are not awake, you cannot eat. The adherents of this diet take heavy sleeping pills and sometimes sleep for several days at a time. The sleep diet was invented in the 1970s.

The smoking diet

  1. The smoking diet is the new Hollywood craze. Grey's Anatomy actress Katherine Heigl, for example, is rarely seen without a cigarette. Chain smoking reduces appetite and lighting a cigarette is one of the best ways to reduce hunger pangs. Chain smoking also includes a special diet: three to five cans of Diet Coke and one bag of peanuts per day.

The Breatharianism Diet

  1. You are not allowed to eat anything on the breatharianism diet. The operation of the diet is based on the esoteric principle that the human body can survive only through sunlight and oxygen. A workshop at the Breatharian Institute of America easily costs $ 10,000, but you can also take courses for $ 25 million. According to founder Wiley Brooks, this investment is a necessity. After all, many followers have already died while on this diet, according to Wiley because they did not have the necessary information.

The Fletcher Diet

  1. At the end of the twentieth century, Horace Fletcher invented a diet that quickly became wildly popular and turned Fletcher into a millionaire. His method consists of chewing every bite you put into your mouth at least 32 times while keeping your head bent over. Then you have to tilt your head back, allowing the contents of the mouth to slide down the throat without difficulty. The pieces that are more difficult to swallow should be spit out again, according to Horace Fletcher.

The cotton wool diet

  1. This is one of the most extreme and bizarre diets in existence. With the cotton wool diet, you have to dip a ball of cotton wool in gelatin and then eat it. You won't be hungry after that.

The insect diet [!/ H Insects such as grasshoppers and beetles are high in proteins that suppress appetite and cause you to lose fat instead of muscle. In Eastern countries they are eaten almost daily. Hollywood actress Angeline Jolie is one of the most famous followers of this bizarre diet. She is particularly fond of cockroaches and bee larvae. [!H] The sperm diet

  1. We end this review with the most extreme diet ever: the sperm diet. It was invented in 2002 by the American porn actress Kim Kelly. The Man Juice Diet lasts for 30 days and consists exclusively of semen, banana smoothies and broccoli. You should try to consume three to six teaspoons of semen per day. One ejaculation equals approximately 1 teaspoon (approximately 15 calories). According to Kim Kelly, semen is ideal for weight loss due to the high amount of protein it contains.
