One-sided diets like the pineapple diet are nothing good. That's clear anyway. Like ALL crash diets. But there are 5 weight loss programs that are so stupid that you will shake your head.

First of all, in principle: EVERY crash diet or one-sided form of nutrition is bad for the body. If you really want to lose weight (in the long term), you have to change your diet, eat healthier and easier, consume less sugar and fat and above all: do sport.

So. If we had found that out again. In addition to the pineapple diet and the like, there are other diets that are so outrageous and idiotic that we ask ourselves who is doing them in all seriousness. Apparently there are some people who believe in the success of these weight loss regimens. Because they are all seriously discussed in forums.

Children, we assume that you will NEVER get the idea to try one of these 5 most stupid and dangerous diets in the world:


The Red Bull Diet. The idea: the energy drink makes you fit and energetic, you move more, you are less hungry, you lose weight. Aha. While each and every one of us is now just shaking our heads, a New Zealander has been on this diet for six months. The 23-year-old drank 10 to 14 cans of Red Bull a day, with dry muesli from time to time. The result: 45 pounds less on the ribs and a heart attack.


The Asthma Spray Diet. Asthma sprays are said to boost fat burning by increasing body temperature. Ergo, you inhale asthma spray even without having asthma - and zack, the kilos tumble. Does that make sense? For God's sake! This is a really dangerous diet variant. Because on the one hand you would have to sniff an incredibly high dose for real weight loss, on the other hand the side effects are enormous. There is a risk of muscle cramps, headaches and damage to the heart.


The laxative diet. Simply take a little Glauber's salt and immediately feel slimmer because the empty stomach becomes flatter. Young girls in particular believe that using laxative teas and pills is preventing their bodies from absorbing the calories. Everything is eliminated in advance. But: The yo-yo effect is enormous, the body does not consume enough nutrients if used continuously. In addition, there are often disorders of the water and electrolyte balance, especially potassium losses. HANDS OFF!


The crispy sausage vodka diet. Okay, you'll admit: that sounds so absurd, it can't be anything. But please, we will still tell you how it should work: In the morning, at noon and in the evening you drink a shot of vodka. This suppresses the feeling of hunger, you consume fewer calories. What role does the knackwurst play in this? No idea. In any case, it is the food that you can treat yourself to at lunchtime with this "balanced" diet. The only one, mind you.


The Bet Diet. We think it's kind of great because it's so completely gaga. The "Bet" diet is not about nutrition, it is about our beliefs. Devised by devout Americans, daily prayers are believed to help melt belly fat. Good for us. We don't even need to go to church, we are already hoping for a weight loss miracle.
