The 9 Dumbest Diets

The 9 Dumbest Diets.

There are numerous reasons why most reasonable people will advise you to make a “lifestyle change” to lose weight rather than beginning a diet. One of those reasons, of course, is that some diets are completely insane. As long as people want to lose weight, there will be “experts” trying to “help” them while laughing all the way to the bank.

A good starting point? Avoid anything that sounds crazy, unhealthy, extreme, or too good to be true.

These are just a few examples of ridiculous diets. Do not attempt these at home!

Diet of Werewolves

Adherents of the Werewolf Diet must abstain from food during every full moon. It appears arbitrary and dramatic, but it caught your attention, didn’t it?

What about a vampire diet, in which you can only eat when it’s dark outside? Or how about the zombie diet, in which you can only eat food that moves slowly enough to catch at a stumbling pace?

Ice Cream Detox

Be wary of any plan that entices you with dessert promises and then sells you something, such as the Ice Cream Cleanse or the Cookie Diet. The Ice Cream Cleanse wants you to consume their unique coconut-based non-dairy product. Coconut is trendy, but don’t go overboard with it.

Diet of Eggs and Wine

Life is a high-protein boozy brunch on the Egg Wine Diet. Breakfast consists of eggs and coffee. Dinner consists of eggs, coffee, and wine. Don’t forget the wine! Dieters are even encouraged to begin their diets on a Sunday morning.


The Baby Food Diet

Some of us find it endearing to see babies with food all over their faces. Does anyone look at those pictures and think, “I’ll have what he’s having”? The baby food diet does not simply want you to mash your food up on your own; it wants you to eat baby food. The contents of the jar. Unfortunately, because the food is so bad, you won’t be able to eat much of it.

Diet of Cotton Balls

Cotton balls are not edible. Please do not consume non-food items, even if they are dipped in juice.

Diet of Cabbage Soup

Some diets never go away, and this one has been around for quite some time. Yes, if you eat vegetables and drink water, you will most likely lose weight. But at what price? To begin, large amounts of gas.


Salute to the great masticator! Horace Fletcher died 95 years ago, but some people still take his advice to chew all food until it is “liquified.” They must be terrible dinner party bores.

The Grapefruit Diet

Grapefruit can be delicious for breakfast or as a snack when combined with protein. It’s not magical, and it doesn’t help you lose weight. The Grapefruit Diet is also known as the “Hollywood Diet” if you want to be glamorous, or the “Mayo Clinic Diet” if you want to be official, despite the fact that it has never been associated with the Mayo Clinic in any way.

The Air Diet

Why eat when you can simply think about food and take deep breaths? “Air Diet” sounds more appealing than “intentional starvation.”
