The Bread and Butter Diet

Talk about conflicting messages. While some diets will tell you to cut bread out of your diet altogether, this one encourages you to have a slice at every meal and slathered with butter, no less! Supposed to be taken over four days, you can choose what kind of bread you like. It doesn’t make any big scientific claims; basically, you take about 850 calories a day, and the low intake lets you lose weight really fast. The biggest problem is that you will feel hungry, making it very difficult to say no to temptation (or even just function properly).
