    Most ridiculous diet I've tried

    I feel like I've done them all and got no t-shirt, the worst for me was definitely the Dukan diet. I ate extra light philly on seaweed for days.... So confusing and so ridiculous, I realised when I tried to explain to hubby how good it was that it sounded insane!

    Would love to hear what other peoples worst diets have been.

    Btw i I know for some Dukan may be great, this is my experience only!

    Ooh yes me too years ago, I remember eating just slices of beef and beetroot on one too, crazy! Amazing on reflection, why does it ever seem like a rational idea at the time ha ha...

    The balance box diet, a bit like diet chef but with fresh food that is delivered every 3/4 days. The food was well balanced but rank!

    I agree, I never got around to doing it because I read the book and thought this is ridiculous, restricting things like fruit?. I see what it's trying to get at, but still. Another is the "Pig to Twig" book. I gave that a go and I thought that was ridiculous too. it recommended a regime of vitamins in the morning and having things like cream in your tea and coffee instead of milk, and it just seem a really fatty diet, I did it for two weeks and it make me feel rubbish.

    Juicing! To be honest, I do quite like the juice and it is brill for a quick detox, but not weeks and weeks of it. Plus the juicing and cleaning up becomes such a pain and the cost of all the fruit and veg!

    1st mini-goal: 1 st by 20/6/14 achieved 30/6/14
    2nd goal: Club 10 by 14/7/14 achieved 21/7/14
    3rd goal: 2 st by 1/09/14

    Love hearing about the crazy diets!
    The worst one (and most pointless) was a cup a soup diet.
    I'd have nothing until lunchtime , then a cup a soup with a white crusty roll with butter on for lunch (how is that healthy?)
    Then a simple dinner. I lost weight but I felt like crap and the bread wasn't helping my bloating etc.
    I did just make it up though and thought I was so clever for losing weight ha ha xx

    Dukan was nearly the death of me. I was too mean to buy the book so did not know about the bran. Hence I felt so ill and constipated. I lasted one week and nearly went crazy for lack of fruit.
    I too did the 6 boiled eggs a day diet in my crazy youth.

    I did one of those 10 day diets. It was all tomatoes, boiled eggs and grapefruit.

    It did work though. I was going on a riding holiday and had sneaked over the maximum weight limit and needed it off fast or risk losing my money.

    It went straight back on after though :-(

    Did cabbage soup diet too... And the one with the celery-soup where you switch from fruit to fruit and veg, to just milk and bananas(?!) as the week progresses. And the rainbow diet. All as useless as each other!
