Disastrous Diets

January 12, 2016

Scientists are set to test freeze-dried pills containing fecal matter of healthy and lean donors, to tackle the obesity crisis. Twenty obese volunteers will be taking part in the research and each will be receiving capsules that include several grams of stool from slim donors. The pills will be taken every week for six weeks without making any changes to their normal diet and exercise habits. These health and weight recordings will be taken at three, six and 12 months, with the potential to continue further, depending on the success of the trial. The experiment was already successful when tested on mice.
What’s the most disastrous diet fad you’ve ever heard of?
Slacker says that when you stop eating a certain thing you lose weight, but as soon as you start it again you gain the weight back. For him it’s alcohol. He admits that he’s tried some of the weird diet pills before. Neither him nor Steve would do the taco cleanse, because they aren’t enjoyable street tacos but weird vegan ones you make yourself.  
Steve says that those pills are cool, until you realize that it’s poop inside of it which freaks you out. He hates the taste of swallowing pills, especially Benadryl. He says that if the poop pills are safe and they work then why not try them?
