Every year it seems there are crazy new diet plans. Most of them are never safe, but some how people think they work. Here’s a rundown of some of the most ridiculous diets people have tried in the last year or so to lose weight quickly according to Yahoo Shine:

  • The hCG Diet – People tried taking injections of the female pregnancy hormone while eating a 500-calorie diet. Sounds safe right?
  • The Baby Food Diet – Losing weight might be as simple as replacing your adult-sized meals with little jars of baby puree.
  • The Tapeworm Diet – Here’s one for the truly desperate. Maybe you tried this during the wedding season. It was believed by many that if you swallow a parasitic tapeworm that can be found in under-cooked meat or infected animal feces, it would break down your digestive system to the point where you wouldn’t want to eat. They had this featured on The Office a while back!
  • The Twinkie Diet – Just eat 1,800 calories of junk food! Why not? A calorie is a calorie, right? Might as well enjoy what you are eating. I like this diet plan, too bad it wasn’t with Chinese food!
