Over the years, people have heard about all kinds of diets. While some of the diets seem strange, some people attest that the diets work for them. Throughout this list, you will see several diets people think are unusual, yet they work for some people.
The diets include the happiness diet, the hallelujah diet, the maker’s diet, the baby food diet, the air diet, the fork diet and the sandwich diet.
The Hallelujah Diet
The Hallelujah Diet is based on plant-based foods that nourish your bodies that leads to self-healing. The Hallelujah Diet is not a diet of deprivation or of eating “diet food.” These are the foods we were meant to eat, the way we were meant to eat them. Gradually substitute a few of your current food choices with healthy plant-based choices.Incorporate an exclusively clean diet of 85% raw and 15% vegan cooked foods, juices and supplements to build a stronger immune system and restore your health so you can live a longer, more vibrant life.
The Maker’s Diet
The Maker’s Diet, also called the Bible Diet, is used to refer to a diet that is based on teachings from the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy and other books of the Bible that certain foods are either forbidden (“unclean”) or acceptable (“clean”) to God.
While the Maker’s Diet is largely influenced by Jewish dietary law, the rules for determining clean and unclean foods are derived from certain passages from the Bible in the books of Genesis, Proverbs, Luke, Paul’s writings, Exodus, Peter, Leviticus, Judges, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, 1 Corinthians, Habakkuk, and Daniel.
The Baby Food Diet
The Baby Food Diet has became a fad when rumors were spread that various celebrities were using it. The idea behind the diet is to replace two daily meals with jars of homemade pureed baby food or store bought jars. The third meal of the day is to remain low calorie and small. The daily calorie restrictions are said to be 600 calories or less. The Baby Food Diet is not meant for anyone to be on for months at a time, rather 7 days maximum. The purpose is to rid your body of toxins and cravings of unhealthy foods.
The Happiness Diet
The path to happiness could be on your dinner plate, according to The Happiness Diet authors Tyler Graham and Drew Ramsey, M.D. Eating “mood food” and staying away from processed foods can have a positive effect on more than just your physical well-being. Eating certain foods can boost your mood. These foods will help you stay healthy, maintain a sharp mind, and keep you in a good mood:
- cherry tomatoes
- chile peppers
The Air Diet
The Air Diet is popular in France. The February 2010 issue of French women’s magazine Grazia advocated the Air Diet. It involves preparing the food, placing the food on a fork or spoon, and lifting the food to your lips. You pretend to eat the food. However, the diet is that you do not actual eat it. See the picture of Madonna as she pretends to eat the food.
The Fork Diet
The Fork Diet comes from France where dieters eat only foods that are meant to be eaten and prepared with a fork. People can eat what they want at breakfast and dinner so they won’t feel deprived, but dinner is strictly forks only. Therefore, you can’t eat sandwiches, soups, or anything else that is not eaten with a fork. While ice cream can be eaten with a fork, you usually eat it with a spoon. So, don’t change just so you can eat ice cream on the fork diet.
The Sandwich Diet
Spanish women are among some of the most beautiful women in the world. They have their own fad diet, and it’s called the Sandwich Diet. People who have tried the Sandwich Diet swear by it. Some have claimed to have lost thirteen pounds just by substituting a sandwich for one of their regular meals.
The idea of the diet is to use two pieces of multi-grain bread and put whatever you like in between the slices. You can’t eat it if you can’t fit your whole meal in between the two slices. Eat the sandwich only. No side dishes allowed.
