The dumbest diet you tried?



Recommended Posts

Ok, looking for the dumbest, silliest, craziest weight loss program you ever tried?

Mine was the Arnold Schwarzenegger diet. I saw it in a newspaper one day. Here was the diet -- (at the time Arnold was the President's Exercise Guru) -- Everytime there was a food decision to make, such as carrots or doughnuts, you just thought "What would Arnold do?". Of course, Arnold would have the carrots. I thought this was silly, but started trying it. Sure enough, a week later, down 5 pounds, then 10 the next week. My wife was pretending I was Arnold as well, but that is another story. Finally, after about three weeks, I said to the Arnold question -- "Well, screw Arnold"!! And that was that.

How much time you got??

If I were to pick one, I would say the Cabbage Diet.

Not only does it smell like arse when you cook it, it makes your arse smell too! Between dealing with the constant liquid diarrhea and the horrible gas, who WOULDN'T want to try this diet?

Cabbage Soup diet tied with Quick Weight Loss centers which the first stage of the diet calls for beef only for the first week.

That's as much beef as you want but nothing else for a week.

Aw, Babbs, I was gonna say that. I was thinking specifically about the Dolly Parton Cagbbage Soup Diet - same results. P.U.

Awww don't knock Richard Simmons! I've been known to sweat to the oldies a time or two....he does a lot of good for severely obese people.

@@wannaBthinsoon Holy cow, how'd I miss that diet? popcorn is my favorite food. Pretty sure I wouldn't have lost a pound.

For me, it was the disgusting lemonade/cayenne pepper fast. My stomach turns just thinking about it.

HCG female hormone (I did the homeopathic) ate 500 calories a day for 21 days then had to do a maintenance phase where you could eat more calories.. I lost weight but felt so deprived I went nuts after a few rounds. Lost 50 lbs , gained back all plus more. I had no energy and lost hair. They stopped selling it in the US but I was able to get it through the internet.

Nutrisystem was dumb and pricey. I stayed on it for 2 days, and threw the rest of my freeze-dried food away. Makes me angry when I see the commercials, they (a few spokespeople) didn't lose weight on nutrisystwm, they lost weight because they were on 'dancing with the Stars' and working out with personal trainers,

That's one I never tried becuase it was expensive. Was the food gross?

It was awful! All freeze dried. I thought it was going to be more like lean cuisine, it wasn't. Soldium galore too.. there is absolutely no way anyone that could afford a nutritionist and a personal chef- was eating that crap

Nutrisystem was the worst. You paid a lot of money and basically the wrappers the food came in tasted better than the good! It was seriously like eating cardboard.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
