Weird Diet #1 - The Tapeworm Diet

6 Weird Diets We Can't Believe People Tried! 2

The perfect weird diet for crazy people and parasite lovers. Who writes down ‘Infect Self with Tape Worm’ when trying to figure out how to lose weight? Suffice to say, this is a bad bad bad idea.

Buy hey, on the plus side, hey at least you get a free low-maintenance pet!

Weird Diet #2 - The Cigarette Diet

Comes with Free Lung Cancer!

For an unlimited time, this diet comes with a free side of lung cancer!

Weird Diet #3 - The Air Diet -

Also known in some circles as starving yourself. The air diet is a dumb and dangerous approach to weight loss. Basically you pretend to eat food, but really only drink salt water. Do you really need a doctor to tell you how dumb this idea is? This worst part… unlike most of the other diets on here, this one is pretty recent.

 

On second thought… maybe I should start one of those meal box plans. For only $20 a month you get 4 weeks of empty boxes. Bon appetite!

Weird Diet #4 - Fletcherism

Out of all the weird diets this one is a mouthful!

Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. Chew. 

Spit

 

This diet was all about chewing your food excessively and then spitting out the pulpy mush still left. 

 

 

The diet’s founder even had specific rules about how many times to chew each type of food. Out of all the weird diets, this one has a grain of good advice in it. Eating slower is a good idea. I mean, chewing your french fries 900 times won’t help you lose weight, but being more mindful about eating is always a good idea! 

Weird Diet #5 - Cotton Balls?

“So what’s for dinner tonight?”

“I was thinking of having cotton balls.”

“Yum, that sounds great! I’ll have some too.”

So 
with this diet you dip the cotton ball into a liquid and eat it. Probably one of the dumbest things you can do with a cotton ball (That’s not a challenge!

 

Also, this another recent diet that breaks my historical diet rule. Sure makes that chewing diet look pretty smart in comparison!
