    The only time to eat diet food is while youre wait-ing for the steak to cook -Julia Child

    Atkins, South Beach, the Zone, Scars-dale, the Grapefruit Diet promises, promises, promises. Fad diets restricting certain foods and/or fo-cusing on certain foods has been around for centuries. Legend has it that William the Con-queror devised an alcohol-only diet in 1087. He died a year later after falling off his horse. Ap-parently the diet didnt work since folks had to painstakingly try to nd a casket to t him.

    SOME OLDIES WITHOUT GOODIESIn 1829, Sylvester Graham, a minister, came up with the Graham Diet: caffeine-free drinks and vegetarian foods, supplemented with graham crackers.

    In 1903, Horace Fletcher, a self-subscribed nutrition-ist, touted the best weight loss program as chewing ones food at least 32 times.

    The Grapefruit Diet came along in the 1920s.

    Take off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS), the fi rst nation-al weight loss program, began in 1948 and is still strong today. Weight loss programs differ from fad diets in that the catch word here is sensibly.

    In the 1960s, Dr. Herman Taller insisted that his Cal-ories Dont Count Diet dropped weight in no time eat all the foods you want, just chase it with veg-etable oil.

    In the 1970s, there was the Last Chance Diet. It was all about fasts and liquid protein drinks. Rumor has it there were 58 deaths linked to this diet or spinoffs of the diet.

    Every fad diet has a gimmick, whether it promotes a carbohydrate-free regimen or eating biblical foods the Hallelujah Diet encourages people to only eat foods, such as fruits and nuts, mentioned in Genesis 1.29.

    The whole diet industry has been shrouded in myths and fairy tales since time immemorial as people argue over what is good for you, said British professor Chris Hawkey.

    TAKING THE FAT TO THE BANKOR THATS THE WAY

    THE COOKIE CRUMBLESWhats good for you is arguable, but inarguable is the fact that the fad diet industry has made billions off those seeking a supposedly sure-fi re, quick way to shed pounds.

    Dr. Sanford Siegel, who has specialty weight-loss clin-ics in Florida and one in Canada, made $12 million last year pushing his Cookie Diet, according to the New York Times. Were not exactly talking Oreos or Mrs. Fields chocolate chip cookies. Siegels recipe is made up of oats, rice, whole wheat and bran and only known to him and his wife. Followers purchase the cookies and lose weight by eating just one meal a day, supplemented with the six cookies throughout the day. Famous song-sters Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have helped secure those millions by endorsing the Cookie Diet. Siegel expects to rake in $18 million in revenues for 2009.

    The popularity of the Cookie Diet has spawned other cookie diets. Smart for Life sells a 35-day diet kit for $297, including six 105-calorie cookies a day. The Hol-lywood Cookie Diet consists of four 150-calorie cook-ies spread throughout each day (and a light dinner) a box of cookies costs up to $20. Soypal Cookies is a popular Japanese cookie diet only 22 calories each and $49 a box.

    Smart for Life anticipates gross revenues of $82 to $95 million this year, up from $30 million in 2008. And the Hollywood Cookie Diet has grown 50 percent since it was cooked up three years ago.

    In 2005, it was estimated that out of the 55 million Americans who went on a diet program, only 5 to 10 percent succeeded. But the diet industry has added a lot of weight to its bank account. In 2006, revenues were estimated to top $48 billion. Some say that today the industry is worth someones weight in gold at $60 bil-lion.

    According to TNS Media Intelligence, three of the big hitters in the weight loss industry spent almost a half billion on TV and print advertising in 2008.

    MOST WHACKY FAD DIETSThere are so many fad diets out there, with new ones popping up all the time, that makes counting calories seem like a no-brainer compared to counting fad diets. Some of them are downright ridiculous and hazardous to ones health.

    Check out some of these crazy but still popular diet fads.

    The Cabbage Diet

    The promise: Lose 7 lbs. in seven days. Cabbage soup is the key to this diet. The recipe includes cabbage and a variety of vegetables fl avored with broth, onion soup mix and tomato juice. The soup can be eaten any time, but other foods are restricted through a seven-day plan. For example, day 1 eat only fruit, except a banana. Day 2 is all you want of fresh, raw or cooked veggies. No fruit. On Day 4 one can eat as many as eight bananas (and lose more weight by swinging from tree to tree). And so on.

    The Lemonade Diet

    The promise: Lose 8 lbs. in 10 days. This is a simple diet to follow. Just drink lemonade, and eat nothing. But the lemonade is not the tasty, sugary summer thirst quencher were used to. The recipe for this lemonade calls for 2 oz. of fresh squeezed lemon, 2 oz. of maple syrup (organic is best), tsp. of cayenne pepper and 2 cups of water. Drink about 160 oz. per day. Yum.

    Along with the weight loss, you lose all of your energy. But the energy is regained when food is reintroduced. Be prepared to gain back all of the weight once food be-comes a regular habit again. But, this lemon of a diet is supposed to increase ones desire for healthy foods.

    The Russian Air Force Diet

    Think of a Russian prison.

    The promise: Follow this one for seven days and lose up to 18 lbs. in 13 days. Never eat more than 800 calories a day. Breakfast is a piece of toast and coffee, except the fi fth day they allow 5 oz. of ham and carrots. Lunches and dinners are comp
