Another diet I won't be trying

The Little Black Dress Diet.
Breakfast: A small bowl of oatmeal made with half a cup of oats, half a cup of skim milk and one cup of water -- no salt. One small pot of Yakult, a probiotic drink from Ireland, and a sachet of Beneflora, a food supplement. Both contain beneficial bacteria that aid with digestion.

Translation: The quicker your stomach begins to digest itself, the quicker you'll get rid of that pot-belly.

Lunch: One apple, a generous bunch of grapes, one ripe banana and more hot water with lemon.

Translation: Sucrose + fiber = the runs. See? A flat belly by noontime!

Afternoon snack: Two cups of fennel tea (available in health food stores) and six dates, the semidried variety. Fennel helps eliminate gas and dates are a source of fiber and iron.

Translation: More gas, more bathroom runs.
