You can go on one of two types of diets: a healthy diet or a crazy fad diet. I just came across a great list of the “Top 25 Fat diets from the last 25 Years“. Here’s a gem known as the Sleeping Beauty Diet (I can’t make this up).
The general idea behind this warped sedative-fueled fad diet is, “Take two of these and call me in seven days.” You are supposed to drug yourself to sleep for up to seven days at a time.
You may lose some weight because you didn’t eat for a week, but we’ve got snooze for you: This diet, which was reportedly used by Elvis during those times his trademark jumpsuits became a tad too tight, just won’t work. You’ll awaken hungrier than a hibernatin’ bear and lumber your way to the nearest buffet for a binge to end all binges. Just say no to drugs… and yes to a healthier diet and weight loss plan.
