I just eat a healthy and balanced normal diet and get plenty of exercise. That photo of the limp pizza really looks grim. Would rather make my own than eat that frightening thing. Extremes in diet doesn't help anyone.

Yeah, these are ridiculous. People are willing to do some pretty stupid things to lose weight, I guess. I'd also like to point out that none of these are permanent solutions. Sure, you might lose weight by following these, but my bet says you won't be able to keep it off, and you sure as hell won't be healthy.

For goodness sakes! Eat more veg than carbs or proteins. Eat loads and loads of beautiful, colorful veg and see the difference almost immediately. You won't be hungry and you body will thank you. Make your stomach work for a living. :0
