So apparently people are drinking pickle juice for weight loss… Idk if I can get behind this one… I have never been a fan of pickles let alone pickle juice!
Marathon runner Dr. Theodore Strange tells the paper, “Pickle juice is high in sodium and potassium, which helps to normalize the imbalances that occur — like cramping when muscles are being overused or dehydrated. If you have heart disease, it would not be recommended to drink pickle juice or anything like it that is high in sodium. If you get cramps during training and you drink it, you can feel the difference. It’s become one of those fads. But I don’t see a problem with it, as long as it isn’t overused.”
What other strange things have people tried!
Jog for junk mail – Turn clutter into a challenge: For every piece of junk mail you pull from the mailbox each day, do one lap around your house or building, or up and down a flight of stairs. You’ll burn between 35 and 140 calories per session.
Sniff a banana, apple, or peppermint – You might feel silly, but it works. When Alan R. Hirsch, MD, of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago tried this with 3,000 volunteers, he found that the more frequently people sniffed, the less hungry they were and the more weight they lost—an average of 30 pounds each.
Stick to wrapped candy – Yes, this is one of the weird weight loss tricks that involve candy. People ate 30 percent less candy when they had to unwrap it first, a Swiss study found. Peeling off the wrapper requires effort, which can make noshers eat less.
