This New Years, don’t fall for the quick-fix diets. Think smart and start living a healthy lifestyle! Just a quick look at some of the worst celebrity diets this year..
The 6 Weeks to OMG Diet
The diet calls for skipping breakfast, exercising first thing in the morning after drinking black coffee, then sitting in a cold bath to encourage the burning of stored fat until 10 am. Snacks and fruits are off limits, foods are protein-heavy and carbs can come from cola or broccoli.
Alcorexia or Drunkorexia Diet
Basically, a diet based on alcohol and little else. Followers save their caloric intake from food and instead get their calories from beer, wine, spirits. Not hard to find the madness in this.
The Ketogenic Enteral Nutrition Diet or KEN
For 10 days, followers are banned from eating and are hooked up with a feeding tube through the nose that pumps a liquid formula into the stomach. Dieters must carry the pump and liquid wherever they go, most likely in a bag or backpack, and can only unhook themselves for an hour a day to drink water, tea, coffee or sugar-free herb teas.
