Bummer! Now I can't have all the fame and glory from inventing it.

yeah it's called 'chew and spit' and it's popular in groups of girls with eating disorders

It wouldn't be too hard to do, and I could make millions, esp if I got it published right around January. Anyone want to ghost write it for me?
Remember Ayds?

Little hunks of cellophane-wrapped chocolate fudge the size of a carmel that you ate with a hot beverage--they were supposed to help you lose weight. They kinda disappeared after the discovery of AIDS back in the '80s, I think.

Oh my gosh Sister Jen and Muna Amin, my uncle's idea does sound like bulimia.

And yes I do remember Ayds and even I who tried just about every diet known to womankind (and drank Tab and Fresca; am I dating myself?) knew that eating a tiny square of chocolate caramel wouldn't help me lose weight. Unless there was something like caffeine or amphetamines or who knows what in it.

I think peanut butter and pop tarts had the highest % of bug and rodent parts in another article I read. Yuck!

So does anyone know where I could get my hands on a tapeworm?

WARNING! The diet that follows is rather gross so if you are grossed out easily you might not want to read it.

The Worm Diet

"I lost 30 in 4 days without even trying!" Linda
"My jeans started feeling looser AS I WAS WEARING THEM!!!" Sue

You could be the next person to lose weight with this new, innovative and all natural product! Simply buy a packet of starter capsules for only $24.99! All you have to do is drink a glass of whole milk then swallow one capsule before your breakfast in the morning. Do this for three days and you will be all set! You will lose weight FAST without changing your diet or exercise program in ANY way!
So how does it work?
Each capsule contains thousands of tapeworm eggs which will eat and digest your food for you! If you eat 30,000 calories a day they will eat almost all of it so your body will only take in about 1,000 calories! It is PROVEN to work!


* side effects may include
Nausea
Weakness
Loss of appetite
Abdominal pain
Diarrhea
Seizures
Fever
Cystic masses or lumps
Allergic reactions to the larvae
Bacterial infections
Neurological symptoms or seizures

Your turn!
Meh, it's been done... Yes, it's real, and in 100 years we'll be poking fun at HCG

I work in a vet's office, they're pretty easy to come by for me. Or adopt a dog with fleas. Fleas carry tapeworms, so in about 3 months you'll have your own personal supply. If you're impatient, just swallow a few fleas and you can speed the process along.
