Lousy Food: ‘Werewolf Diet’ Attracting a Pack of Celebrities
Folks, if this isn’t the end of the world as we know it, it’s certainly the beginning of our Twilight!
Who, then, would fall for such nonsense? Firstly, there’s Madonna and Demi Moore. According to press sources, these two women have many fur-weather friends who think the moon phases might have a favorable effect on their diet.
It’s frightening that a diet that purports to help you grow thin and mean via moon power has amassed a following.
How is this intended to operate in the first place?
The principle is simple: eat according to the lunar phases. The diet’s “science”: just as the moon affects ocean tides, it likewise affects how your body eliminates pollutants.

There is some evidence that intermittent fasting may help you live a longer life. That is, however, throughout a lifetime.
While we love staring at the full moon just as much as the next person, we would never anticipate this starry night light to assist us in becoming more enlightened.
Our suggestion for weight loss is to avoid wolfing down your meal and to stay active. You never know when an actual werewolf may surprise you.
