Giyen from Bacon is my enemy asks: "What is the most ridiculous thing you've tried in the name of weight loss?"
I am fortunate that I have never been lured by anything risky. I've never done the low carb, high carb, grapefruit, apple cider vinegar diets or anything like that. To me, those always seemed too confusing. Once, my neighbor gave me a book about eating something like 40% of your calories in carbohydrates, 30 % protein and 30% fat (something like that) but after reading two or three pages, I had to put the book down. It was just WAY too confusing for me. For me, eating should not be confusing.
The craziest thing I have ever done is to assume that eating the same way time and time again would not give me the same results. I was slowly gaining weight year after year, but assuming that I wouldn't keep doing that even though I was changing nothing about the way I ate or moved. Now that is either craziness, or complete ignorance!
I suppose when I looked at my own craziness, it somehow seemed insignificant to the craziness one must possess to believe that drinking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar before every meal would help burn more calories. Perhaps I should have been more crazy, it might have helped me make the connection earlier that what I put in my mouth affects my weight. Hmmm....
What is the craziest thing you have ever done in the name of weight loss? (I promise I won't judge!)
