6. Imaginary Gastric Band
Why go to extreme weight loss methods when you can just trick your body into thinking you did? It worked for Marion Corns! Just look at her results! She paid a therapist to hypnotize her into believing that she had been given the gastric band surgery. After five sessions, she claimed her stomach felt like it was smaller and she was full after eating smaller amounts of food. She immediately began losing about 3 pounds a week.
7. Spend a Week at High Altitude
If you want to lose weight while eating all the food you want and not exercising, all you have to do is move to an extreme elevation. A study was done on 20 overweight men who spent a week at an altitude of 8,700 feet. They were told to eat whatever they wanted and not to exercise more than a leisurely stroll. They lost an average of 3 pounds that week and kept an average of 2 pounds off for a month after returning home to normal elevations. Unfortunately further studies showed that the benefits wear off after living at high altitudes for 6 months so simply moving to the mountains won’t help long term, but a visit every once in a while might!

And they just might work, but they are very dangerous as well and can cause symptoms such as intestinal blockage, organ failure, brain and nervous system damage and even death!
