People have been pushed to change their bodies for as long as fashion and beauty have been around, changing the "ideal" silhouette as the decades have passed. And with these shifting beauty standards, questionable diet fads and exercise aids have emerged, promising to help the dieter fit into whatever standard is king at that moment. From laxatives that will help you shed the pounds, to tonics that will help you pack on curves, to sauna pants that will help you sweat your way to a thigh gap, ahead are some strange diet fads through the ages. 

If you think these are hilarious and weird, just imagine what people will be saying about our current routines 50 years from now!
