The diet was devised by a Croatian man looking to shed a lot of weight. It worked for him, he lost some 160 pounds on the disgusting diet. The diet consists of garlic and onions on either a wheat biscuit or cracker with a side of carrot juice -- yum.
Combining the diet with exercise, the creator of the diet did manage to lose a lot of weight, but friends said his breath was "really rancid."
The rare dieters thinking about this diet should be sure to pick up a few gallons of mouthwash when they stock up on onions and garlic if they want to keep their friends and family close.
After all, what good is it to lose weight if nobody can stand being close enough you to notice?
No. 1: The My Pet Fat diet
The My Pet Fat diet isn't so much a diet as a ugly deterrent to eating altogether.
Inspired by the pet rock craze of the 1970s, the diet consists only of a chunk of synthetic fat designed to look like the leftovers from a liposuction.
The idea is to put the ugly blob on the kitchen counter or in the fridge. Simply spotting the ugly little blob supposedly gets dieters thinking about their own fat and skipping the next snack.
One wonders why dieters would spend money on something so gross when they could simply save money by not buying the sweets they're trying to avoid.
While there aren't any health concerns associated with My Pet Fat, but dieters might have to hide their new pet when company comes over.
In the case of this pet, there's a very thin line between healthy motivation and creeping out your house guests.
