When I was 15 I tried being a vegetarian. It was partly because I love animals and partly because I wanted to lose my baby fat. I lasted about 12 hours before jumping back on the delicious meat bandwagon. Considering I worked at a greasy Chinese restaurant at the time where I had to look at delectable meat dishes all day, that was definitely a stupid and futile diet to try.
Weight lost and the quest for better health has driven people to take drastic measures, including engaging in radical diets and committing to weird daily rituals. Australia’s very own Miranda Kerr likes to gargle coconut oil for 20 minutes every morning, which supposedly improves oral health. Colonic irrigation, where a tube is inserted up the butt to “wash out” the colon, was a popular fad a few years back.
