With a new diet fad coming out what feels like every single day, it's sometimes overwhelming to decide which one to try.

Some of them sound so absolutely ridiculous, but when you read the reviews of people's success stories, it's hard not to wonder whether or not you should put any stock into it.

First of all, you should obviously NEVER try anything that hasn't been approved by your doctor. Secondly, if a diet promises results that sound too good to be true, it probably isn't what it seems. If it actually does deliver, it's important to make sure the method isn't harmful to your health.

With that brings me to the new diet trend that I'm not sure about whatsoever. Ever hear of the moon diet? No? Neither did I until today.

The moon diet is said to work because of the gravitational pull the different phases of the moon have on our bodies. According to Glamour.com, if this diet method is followed during full and new moons, you could stand to lose up to six pounds in one day.

The catch? It's definitely not safe to carry out for more than one day.

Basically, you're supposed to only consume water and juice during the full and new moons. Now, when I say JUST water and juice, I mean ONLY water and juice; no food whatsoever.

Remember when I mentioned how diets promising crazy results probably aren't actually all their cracked up to be? Yeah.... that.

It is possible to lose 6 lbs in a day, however that's water weight which means you're super likely to gain it all back almost as quickly as it left you.

So, what do you think? Is the moon diet worth trying? Just to see if it works? Let me know in the comments below.

If you're interested in giving it a whirl, the next full moon is October 13th.
