With beauty being seen as a thing to possess by whichever means possible, there is not much that people do not do to look good. Be it through surgery, through exercises or even through dieting, some people will go to any lengths to look and feel good, even if it may not be healthy for them.
There have been certain dieting methods that have been plain bizarre and the people who have actually tried them can be called nothing less than having had lost their minds.
For example, someone developed pills with tape worms in them that would actually eat the dieter's food for them. But what they did not think was that tape worms in their system would actually give them abdominal and rectal complication as well.
