Here is another crazy diet plan that will make you howl!

“The werewolf diet—also known as the moon diet or lunar diet—may help you lose two to six pounds in a single 24-hour period and offers additional dieting advice that follows the phases of the moon. Celebrities such as Demi Moore and Madonna have reportedly followed this diet, according to Grazia.

Although it's up to you whether you want to run about in the forest and howl at the moon while following the werewolf diet, the main rule consists of a simple 24-hour water or juice fast during the full moon and new moon phases. This simple diet has the potential to help you lose up to 6 pounds in 24 hours, although it's more common to lose 2 or 3 pounds. At least some of this is water weight, but some of it is fat, too. If you need to be down a few pounds to fit into that dress tomorrow, this could be the perfect vehicle. And if you do it consistently with every cycle of the moon, you could easily stave off weight gain and even lose weight slowly over the course of a year depending on your other eating habits. By following the extended moon 
diet plan that covers all phases of the moon, you could lose even more weight.”

Now commons sense tells you that if you fast on nothing but juice for 24 hours you will lose up to 2 pounds whether the moon is full or not. However, when making potions such as Doctor Lynn’s Nectars the herbs are always put up on the full moon to extract the essence from the herbs and plants. The moon does draw energy. We know this by the tides.

“According to the theory of the werewolf diet, the moon exerts the same influence on the water in your body as it does on the oceans and tides. Therefore by fasting according to the phases of the moon your body may respond even more powerfully by flushing excess water and toxins from your body. Eating according to the phases of the moon, as recommended in the extended moon diet, may also aid weight loss.”

I am often asked about fasting. A 24 hour fast sometimes can help to cleanse the body and you will lose about 2 pounds, but as soon as you resume eating the pounds will come back. Nothing wrong with a daylong juice cleanse before a party or simply to cleanse and rest the digestive tract. Extended fasting is not healthy. The body requires nutrients and calories to stay healthy. A better approach would be to eat healthy with moderate portions. Losing and then maintaining weight is more about changing your lifestyle, than it is about continuing to diet.

But if the werewolf in you can’t resist giving a good wail to the full moon, a day of fasting might be just the quick fix for you!
