Although it might kill you!
I saw this poster from the 1950s on pinterest and for a split second thought, now there's a good idea. It's NOT a good idea, it's a VERY BAD idea but those of us with eating disorders get some weird ideas in our heads sometimes.
Can you believe, is it possible, that swallowing Tape Worms was a diet craze in the 1950s?
Sure you'd loose weight, but you also have a good chance of permanently damaging your intestine or DEATH!
Apparently Maria Callas the opera singer lost over 4 stone this way, but there's also a good chance that's an urban myth.
So the questions remain
1. Was this a real poster?
2. Did real women ever resort to so drastic a diet?
3. Is it something people are still willing to try?
I pray not, I'm thankful I only thought it for a split second before coming to my senses.
Sure this is a diet that never fails, but no one needs to loose weight THAT much.
