How I Lost 5 lbs. in 5 Days.

by Jon on February 22nd, 2008

With the new and improved Influenza Diet, you too can drop half a dress-size without a single ounce of exercise. Atkins Schmatkins, the Flu Diet is where it’s at.

With the flu, you’ll spend days in bed on a hallucinogenic trip through the rabbit hole as your body temperature peaks at an impressive 103 °F (approximately 39 °C) before you’re suddenly overwhelmed by teeth-chattering coldness. Add to that a barrage of body aches and extreme fatigue so that you know it’s working.

You won’t have to worry about counting carbs or watching your calorie intake as the severe throat soreness will deter you from both drinking and eating. Luckily a complimentary cough is included for soreness maxification. Sneezing and nasal congestion also make an appearance and if you’re really lucky, a surprise visit from nausea and vomiting.

Sound too good to be true? Well it’s not! I’m (barely) living proof.
