Losing weight is like a nightmare for most of the people. It seems that in order to lose weight you might have to give-up tasty, not so healthy food forever. But here we are, with 11 extreme diets that are much more, than just losing weight. 

1. Cotton ball diet

This includes eating (you read that right), literally eating cotton balls. 

Ever thought, something used to clean makeup can also clean body fat? Apparently, few people actually make use of cotton balls to get rid of their extra kilos. The recipe to this crazy diet is, chewing one plate of cotton balls dipped in your favourite fruit juice for a week till your body gets deprived of all the basic nutrients.

2. The tapeworm diet

This diet includes ingesting tapeworms in your intestine to not gain weight. 

This practically is self induced diarrhoea. Tape worms are those organisms that can breed in your intestine, which means they can also share the nutrition & fats of your food. There are certain pills which induce the growth of tapeworms in your body which makes you thin because of incomplete nutrition.
