    That Marilyn Monroe sundae was also pretty tiny, compared to sundaes in a store now. That article did spend several pages on her fitness routine in addition to her diet.

      One of the saddest diets I ever heard of, even back in my SAD days. A friend of mine did this, and kept battling the same twenty pounds.

      Breakfast: Slim-fast
      Lunch: LeanCuisine
      Snack: Slim-Fast
      Dinner: LeanCuisine PLUS a dry salad

      And she was so excited because at dinner she got an 'extra'.

        My friend uses the apple diet...eat nothing but apples for 2 days, then on the 3 rd day eat anything you like. Quick colon cleanse I suppose.
        Lol, a bit bizarre both of your diets... I suppose that your "Kelloggs cereal diet" may be inspired by the cornflake diet:

          Livestrong.com has become the webMD of shitty internet "health and nutrition" sites. So much contradictory fail, all in the name of ad revenue. It's obscene.

              Back in the day the diet option was always understood to be high protein. You could go to any restaurant and get the diet plate which was typically tuna salad or a burger patty, lettuce and tomato and cottage cheese (non-fat didn't exist back then). Maybe a small amount of fruit on the side, almost a garnish.

                When I used to wait tables while I was doing my BA, there was a diet plate like that on the menu (I worked at a high-end private club that had a lot of older members). They had two sizes, and people had the option of a beef patty or tuna or salmon salad, and it came with a portion of cottage cheese, lettuce, tomato, and sliced melon.

                  Every other day diet for life. One day eat to appetite, the next day eat 500 calories (starvation), and voila, the skinny gene (SIRT-1)is triggered.

                    We actually have a poster of her doing dumbbell bench presses in our work out room. I guess they didn't have sports bras or something back then, since she is lifting in her brazier!

                    Still, it's a pretty cool poster.

                        That's just OCD, I got a friend who would only eat white for a while, then only blue for a while.

                          I'll eat only brown food:

                          - chocolate
                          - meat
                          - almond butter
                          - beer

                          Oops. That's not going to work, is it.

                            Actually, they call this one weird, but I'm just impressed:

                              Why not? Not every diet are for weightloss, so if your goals are to gain weight and muscles, it may not be that bad...

                                Found these two genius diets via the web. Yes, they're real.

                                Pretend to Eat Food
                                Now this diet is just silly. Remember when you were a child. Maybe your sister had a little tea set and you would happily eat pretend food and drink pretend tea along with her. Well, the “Air Diet” could almost be considered the grown up version of this childhood game. Pretend eaters actually cook a meal for themselves, take spoonfuls of REAL food, bring them to their mouths, and put the food back in their plates. They claim that by pretending to eat real food, they feel full and satisfied. If you do feel a little peckish in between “pretend meals”, fear not! You can snack on the recommended “water soup” which is nothing more than a bowl of water and salt...satisfying!

                                Stuff yourself with cotton balls to feel stuffed
                                If you ever wondered what it’s like to feel like a stuffed animal, then this is the diet for you. Popular among models, this diet consists of ingesting cotton balls in order to feel full and satisfied. The only problem is cotton is not meant to be digested by the human body and it can leave you feeling ill for quite some time. It’s always a good idea to add more fiber to your diet, but you might want to try eating more whole grains before turning to cotton balls.
