According to this article the latest celebrity diet craze is to eat nothing but sweets. The idea is that certain sweets contain very little calories whilst taking a long time to eat. Replacing conventional food with sweets, then should in theory help you lose weight quickly. Favourite sweets include Jelly Bellies (a 35-bean serving has 80 calories), Haribo Starmix (14 calories a serving) and sugar-free liquorice (100 calories a serving). I do wonder what this sort of diet would do your body, surely these are simply empty calories with no nutritional benefit and all that sugar can’t be good for your teeth.
