The Russian Airforce Diet

This diet was supposedly created by the Soviet Union to keep its soldiers fit. It certainly employs an almost military-level type of strictness, but its effects of low energy, feeling of fatigue, poor concentration could hardly be the qualities any army would want from its men.

The diet lasts for seven days, and like the Metabolism Diet, requires you to drink at least 4 glasses of water or diet soda everyday. The same seasonings are allowed (herbs, salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, mustard and ketchup). The diet is supposed to be repeated, but most nutritionists will warn you against maintaining this for long periods of time. It doesn’t have enough vitamins and minerals, and the repetitive menu can get really old, really fast.
