From the cookie diet to the baby food diet, most women have been there, done that when it comes to losing weight. In fact, in an astoundingly unappetizing tidbit of trivia, the average woman has tried 61 diets by the time she is 45, according to a new survey. Beginning at age 16, that would mean the average woman experiments with two weight loss plans a year, which often includes extreme regimes like the cabbage soup diet or the all fruit diet. The survey of 2,000 men and women which was commissioned by the popular British bread company Warburtons also discovered that three-quarters of those polled, whether men or women, hand gone on a diet in the past year. "It seems the obsession with dieting," says Dr. Hilary Jones, "could be having a detrimental effect on our nutritional intake, as many people lose track of what constitutes a healthy, balanced diet. "An average of 61 diets over an adult lifetime could mean an awful lot of people have cut a significant amount of calcium and other vital nutrients out of their meals."
Slacker once tried the Master Cleanse. You know the one where you drink water with lemon, cayenne pepper and other stuff in it. He said it was one of the worst experiences of his life. He basically had to take 3 days off to spend in the bathroom.
