Radical Diet Cuisine


Successful dieting is often a matter of what you don’t eat rather than what you do eat. The following foods are chosen especially as hunger suppressants. They can be included in your diet in huge quantities for it is quite certain that you will find them completely, revoltingly unpalatable.


Banana Worm Bread


1/2 cup vegetable shortening

3/4 cup sugar

2 bananas

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon soda

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped nuts

2 eggs

1/4 cup dry-roasted army worms


Mash the bananas and mix in all other ingredients. Bake in a greased loaf tin at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.


Insect Crunch

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup honey

Large Bowl of Popcorn

1 cup roasted insects (crickets, grasshoppers, bees, ants, etc...)


Slowly heat butter and honey stirring well. Mix the insects with the popcorn and pour in the butter and honey mixture and stirring constantly. Spread this out on a baking tray and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cut onto small pieces and serve.


Food to Die for!

Try a few weeks of eating nothing else but the Japanese delicacy fugu – it may not reduce your weight but, should you survive, you will be so relieved to be alive that you will forget about any weight problem you thought you had.


Fugu is a blowfish that contains, tetrodotoxin, a poison so deadly only licensed chefs are allowed to prepare this dish. It is slightly sweet and perfectly tender making fugu sashimi (slices of raw fish) the most popular recipe for blowfish. Fugu stew, fried fugu, and fugu zosui (rice porridge) will also delight the palate. But even with tight regulation about two people every week die a horribly painful death from wrongly prepared Fugu. This gave rise to an old Japanese folk song which says,
"Fugu wa kuitashii, inochi wa oshishii" or "I want to eat fugu, but I don't want to die."




Cheesy Snack

If you are in the habit of frequently snacking on cheese here is a simple method of reducing your intake – replace all the cheese in your refrigerator with the fabulous Sardinian delicacy Maggot Cheese.

To make this little treat take some ordinary cheese, cover it with a cloth and leave it in the open until flies lay their eggs on it. These will hatch into maggots that will feast of the cheese. When the cheese is alive with maggots spread it onto bread and eat it complete with the live maggots. If this does not stop your cheesy habit it will at least give you a more balanced diet of meaty maggots and cheese. Enjoy!!
