Diets that prescribe stitching a wire mesh to your tongue, binge drinking, and passing a feeding tube through the nostril in order to pump a liquid formula into the stomach rate as some of the worst diet plans, ever. 
 
Plastic tongue patch diet
This procedure involves a plastic mesh patch sewn onto the tongue, making eating solid foods so painful you have no choice but to adhere to a liquid diet. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Nikolas Chugay had seen the procedure done in Latin America, especially Venezuela, so he introduced it in the U.S. four years ago at a price of $2,000 a pop. Diet includes an exercise plan and a daily drink of 800 calories.

Tube feeding diet
Brides-to-be, want to squeeze into that strapless wedding gown in 10 days? One terrible diet scheme is the K-E Diet (short for Ketogenic Enternal Nutrition), which promises to help you drop weight quickly by being fed through a feeding tube. Through the tube, dieters are fed a carb-free mixture of protein, fat, and water, adding up to only 800 calories a day.

Drunkorexia diet
Basically, a diet based on alcohol and little else. Experts find that as many as one in six US college women skip meals to get drunk faster and "make room" for alcohol calories, with three times as many women reportedly engaging in what's dubbed "drunkorexia" than men.

The 6 Weeks to OMG Diet
The diet calls for skipping breakfast, exercising first thing in the morning after drinking black coffee, then sitting in a cold bath to encourage the burning of stored fat until 10 a.m. Snacks and fruits are off limits, foods are protein-heavy and carbs can come from cola or broccoli.
