I was just reading a blog and the blogger made me laugh (she’s a slushpile reader with an agent) about a submission about a diet book. (The Rejector)

And I came up with three brand new diets:

There’s the “Basic Training” diet. Signing up for the army and doing basic training is a great way to lose weight. I’m surprised no one has written about that yet.

There’s also the tried but true ‘Hermit Diet’ which consists of sitting cross-legged and naked on a stone, and eating only what the pilgrims bring.

And there there is the “Shipwrecked” diet: only eat what you can find on a tiny island in the middle of nowhere.

OK guys – you know me, right? Which diet did I try and will subsequently tell you about? (Which resulted in very little weight loss, and I will tell you why after you’ve guessed!)
And to make it more fun, the first person to guess right will get a free download of their choice! On your mark, get set, GO!
