    1905- the chewing method was called fletcherism I believe. They chewed for a few minutes and swallowed when their foods would turn liquid and runny. The food wasn’t spat out.

    I’d really like to know the verdict on that Twinkie diet please. Asking for a friend.



  3. Barbara Quintana on July 13, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    All of my friends liked to find out me much thinner. I was able to lose 21 pounds with all the diet I came across here https://t.co/1eUeNcfk9b

    To lose weight fast without starving yourself and keep your health up to date is not easy. Weight loss is a difficult thing for anyone. I found a very good diet and managed to lose 21 pounds quickly. The diet is here https://t.co/BDnhSQdKwL

  11. Pugie A bear on July 13, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    So the constant trend throughout the diets was starvation! I cracked the puzzle 👏👏 good job humanity😽



  12. Lydia Aena on July 13, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    cake diet: ur only allowed to eat cake and it gets gross after two days so you ll end up eating a lot less !



  13. Luna Osaka on July 13, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    actually mono meals are the best thing you can do to yourself. its so easy for digestion and fruits are full of nutrition. just look at frutarians, they are sooo healthy.



  19. Lunar Load on July 13, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    my diet: nothing.



  20. RachelWolfe on July 13, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    I like the mono diet. I can just eat one thing of what I like but a lot. I enjoy the pizza the most.



  21. Dustin Miller - PolyInnovator on July 13, 2021 at 9:56 pm

  22. Russell Douglas on July 13, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    My colleagues all follow the “fizy unique plan” (Google it) and they have dropped between 9 and 12 pounds each so far. They told me Google it along with check out it too. As soon as I started following it the weight just slipped 16 lbs.



  23. John Alba on July 13, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Thing is, if you wanna be healthy, you need a balanced diet. And for the love of god don’t starve yourself.
