Among the introductory questions of “what’s your favorite color?”, “what’s your favorite animal?”, and so forth comes the question: “what’s your favorite food?” How could it not? Food is ingrained into our everyday lives from the moment we are born to the very moment we die. Just as America runs on Dunkin, Americans, Chinese, Vietnamese, Canadians, and every inhabitant on the planet we call earth, runs on food. We use food for energy, to run, sleep, walk, talk, and think. We use the calories we obtain from food to function, and by our very nature food is a necessary topic of conversation. When is breakfast, snack time, lunch, dinner, and dessert? When can we next eat the vital nutrients that keep our hearts pumping? What type of food do we prefer?

However our very nature is being challenged by our nurture when society proposes an ideal image for bodies. Why would a model possibly eat enough to feel satisfied and full of energy? Why wouldn’t everyone want to look like a sickly rail that had barely survived starvation? To some people the sarcasm proposed wouldn’t be considered sarcasm at all, but merely an idealistic body goal. This website is a tribute to them: a countdown of the top seven diet plans that will make you not only question how their practitioners violate their nature, but how they violate the fundamental principles of common sense and sanity.
