These Are the Most Extreme Ways to Lose Weight
Struggling to lose kilograms and achieve your dream figure can lead to some rigorous and extreme ways that might help you in your goal but can also cause some serious issues with your health. But, people who are determined would do almost everything in order to succeed.
1 Urine injections
You think you have heard of every possible diet? Nope, here comes one of the strangest. The regimen involves a daily injection of urine. Sheryl Paloni lost 19 kilograms and more and around 75 cm in five months. Sheryl injected herself with urine from pregnant women on daily basis. One weight loss counselor who offers the program said it’s not the urine, but the hormone in it that takes off the weight. Would you try this?
Okay, we have already heard about this physical way that burns calories, but an overweight woman practices it up to seven times in order to lose weight. Pauline Potter, 47, became the Guinness World Record holder for heaviest woman last year when she weighed in at 317 kilograms, but she’s managed to lose nearly 45kilograms in the last year, of course after she got back with her ex husband. They were married for three years, but split in 2008 but reunited when he heard about her Guinness title. The couple apparently is intimate up to 7 times a day which helps Pauline lose weight.
Potter, who had been consuming 10,000 calories a day, hopes to reach her goal weight of 241 kilograms with the help of Alex.
3 Paintball shots
The latest innovation in the war on obesity is fat busting paintball sessions. There is a UK company that is believed to be the world’s first ever paintball fitness classes. During the sessions, people wanting to get fit will be invited to dodge paintballs while running an assault course, while the paintball center’s staff attempts to shoot them. Organisers UK Paintball is targeting obese people with the sessions, which they believe will massively help with weight loss. The sessions will run as part of a ten week course, costing £199 per person, and it’s believed that each participant can expect to burn between 800-1000 calories a time. Three or four shooters will be employed during the sessions to ensure that safe areas are kept to a minimum and that participants have to continue to run throughout. Objects such as oil drums, felled trees, Tyre walls and makeshift huts will all be removed to offer as little protection as possible to participants – encouraging them to keep moving and stay clear of the marksmen.
4 Imaginary gastric band
What is this exactly? A gastric band is a restrictive band placed around the patient’s stomach that gives the sensation of a full stomach after eating smaller portions of food, so this lets the patient eat less and lose weight without going hungry. But fitting the band requires surgery, with potential side effects – so here’s a novel idea; making obese patients believe that they have an “imaginary” gastric band through hypnosis! A therapist convinced a 35 year-old woman she had had surgery to fit the band by talking her through the procedure while in a trance. Hospital smells were even pumped into the room to boost the effect. The woman did lost 4-6 kilograms said (although of course she knew she was hypnotized): “Bizarrely I can even ‘remember’ being wheeled into theatre, the clink of the surgeon’s knife and smell of the anaesthetic.”
5 One week at 2561 meters Altitude
This one is probably the best, of course if you can afford this trip. The secret is that you can eat whatever you want. Overweight, sedentary people who spent a week at an elevation of 2561 meters lost weight while eating as much as they wanted and doing no exercise. A month after they came back down, they had kept two-thirds of their weight. The scientists ferried 20 overweight, middle-aged men by train and cable car to a research station perched 300 meters below the peak of Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze. During the week-long stay, the men could eat and drink as much as they liked and were forbidden from any exercise other than leisurely strolls. The team measured the men’s weight, metabolic rate, levels of hunger and satiety hormones before, during, and after their mountain retreat After a week up high, the subjects lost an average of 3 pounds. A month later, they were still 2 pounds lighter. The scientists’ data showed this was likely because they ate about 730 calories less at high altitudes than they did at normal elevations. They may have felt less hungry, in part, because levels of leptin, the satiety hormone, surged during the stay, while grehlin, the hunger hormone, remained unchanged.
