The Sleeping Beauty Diet

This weight loss method was made famous by Elvis.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

In the dieting world, there are many diets that come along that are known purely as a fad diet. Fad diets are often super popular for a little while, but usually not healthy in nature. They may offer temporary results, but usually result in any weight lost being gained back fairly quickly.

One such fad diet is the Sleeping Beauty Diet. This diet was very popular with musical legend Elvis Presley. Basically for the Sleeping Beauty Diet, you are put under heavy sedation for several days in order to sleep off pounds. Since you are sedated, you don’t consume any calories during this time, so your body is forced to burn calories that has already stored up. There has been information that shows a link between lack of sleep and being overweight or obese.

However, turning a lack of sleep into total sleep is not the solution to losing weight. Going any extended period of time without food can be damaging to the body. It is unclear where you would receive the sedatives from as most doctors would highly advise against this method of weight loss. There is also no information on this fad diet being at all successful.

PRO
  • Body will be forced to burn stored calories
  • Likely to get caught up on sleep
CON
  • Classified as a fad diet
  • Very little information available
  • No documented results
  • Difficult to get sedatives due to nature of the diet

* Sleeping for several days can be dangerous and damaging to the body

DIET and NUTRITION

There really is no diet with this program. You simply sleep for several days in order to burn calories. While you are sleep, there is no eating involved.

EXERCISE

The Sleeping Beauty Diet involves no exercise. You sedate yourself in order to lose weight and are conducting no exercise while you’re sleep.

CONCLUSION

As far as fad diets are concerned, The Sleeping Beauty Diet*definitely fits the bill. Anytime a diet sounds outrageous or like something that wouldn’t work, it’s a good idea to run in the opposite direction. Any diet that suggests you starve yourself by sleeping for several days is not going to be a healthy one. It’s important to listen to your instincts. If a diet sounds too good to be true, or too bizarre to be healthy, then it probably is.

It states in the first paragraph that there is no information of this diet being successful ~ I have researched reviews via internet and there has been positive feedback after The Sleeping Beauty trial

i had to pick a fad diet for a school project. this one caught my eye because it seemed to good to be true. the sleeping beauty diet is unreasonable think your a bear you don't lose a lot of weight while in hibernation and when a person does it for an even shorter time you wont lose the weight. plus when you wake up you will be more out of shape than when you started
