The Tapeworm Diet

From ‘howstuffworks’:  “A tapeworm is like something out of a horror movie. It’s a wiggly, creepy looking ribbon-shaped creature that lives inside you, absorbing your nutrients and laying millions of eggs. They can reach 20 feet (6.1 meters) or more in length and live for years. And if the idea of having a worm living inside of you doesn’t have you shuddering in revulsion, just wait until you hear how they reproduce.

Despite the extreme “gross” factor of tapeworms, some people have suggested that acquiring one intentionally would be a relatively simple way to lose weight. In fact, tapeworm pills have been sold as weight-loss aids in the past. In some ways, it seems to make a certain amount of sense — that is, if you can get past the gross-out factor.”
