Your kidding me right

I had a conversation today that I figured I would share so that you could all get a good laugh! A friend who has been trying different fad diets since December is now on the no sugar kick.  Hopefully if you are following Weight Watchers you have already figured out the only way to lose weight is to count calories.  It doesn't matter so much what you eat as much as how much you eat.
The fad dieter refused strawberries because they had too much sugar in them but chowed down on potatoes chips instead. She also passed on the ketchup because of the sugar in it even though it is a mere 15 calories.  She also told another friend that she canceled out any vegetables in her veggie burger because she added ketchup. 
Do you have any crazy diets that you or your friends tried?


  1. wow, that is probably the craziest diet i've ever heard of.

  2. I never understood that. I've tried to follow certian diets, I remember trying the Atkins diet but there were WAY too many restrictions for me and I could never have done it!

  3. Yeah, everything in moderation, right? Iknow so many people who do the "no white foods" diet. Um, I need cards to live, thanks.

  4. Sometimes you just have to let them learn on there own!

  5. Oh! Your poor poor friend! (Smiles) I know I tried some doozies... but I never passed up strawberries and vegetables in lieu of potato chips and ketchup.

  6. No strawberries for me but I'll take the bag of Doritos.


    That's crazy.

    Obviously, that's not going to last long.

  7. haha! These people drive me crazy. A girl in my class wouldn't eat carrots b/c they had "too many carbs." REALLY? how many carbs did that piece of pizza I saw you chowing down on have?
