There are bad diet ideas, and then there’s this one: A woman lost 99 pounds over the course of eight months by consuming a diet consisting solely of up to 14 cans of Red Bull a day, “often accompanying them with nothing more than a handful of dry Honey Puffs.”
“I just continued to drink it because it’s an appetite suppressant and I noticed I was losing weight so stuck with it.”
Ms Robertson said she managed to keep her addiction secret from family and friends, and did not recover from it until after a two-week stay in hospital following a minor heart attack.
She’s better now.. except for a heart murmur and ongoing stomach and bowel cramps. And frequent anxiety attacks.
