Thanks, NPR’s The Salt, for introducing us to photographer Stephanie Gonot‘sĀ bizarre visual replications of fad diets like The Hollywood Grapefruit diet and the 7-Day Color Diet (shown above). Kate Pilewski, a student health dietitian at Duke University said, “Seeing [these diets] in photos is really striking and makes them look much less appealing than hearing that Beyonce did it.” Here’s some other stuff that we loved today:
