[QUOTE=Drumroll;1049898]Found these two genius diets via the web. Yes, they're real.
[B]Pretend to Eat Food[/B]
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!
[B]Stuff yourself with cotton balls to feel stuffed[/B]
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.[/QUOTE]
I'm glad to hear that cotton balls are at least sorta kinda edible. After I saw Elf I thought "wow how many kids are going to die from eating cotton balls now!"
My dad used to do a diet that included running 6 minute miles and eating a whole box of prunes.
Yeah I [I]bet[/I] he had the runs on that diet. Hayoh. Badump-tshh.

I was just trying to figure out how he made it 6 miles without stopping... :eek:
There's that one where you eat all that SATURATED FAT and forsake your heart healthy whole grains...
[I]I KEED, I KEED![/I]
The diet where you drink 1/2 cup of expensive, CLA-enriched safflower oil everyday to "burn fat" and curb your appetite sounds like a real loser.
The one where a person intentionally infect themselves with tapeworms, (as someone already mentioned above) is the most disgusting, bizarre, nasty and despicable weight loss method I've ever heard of.
"The Tapeworm diet" is beyond BIZARRE in my personal opinion...
You mean this one?
Gah! I thought the tapeworm thing was a joke, or an urban legend! People DO that?!

A foodie friend of mine claims to have one. His name is "Javier."
