What is the history of Tapeworm Diet?

If the tapeworm diet is so unhealthy, then where did it come from? The tapeworm diet started with women in the Victorian Era who wanted to achieve what that society viewed as beautiful. This was done in the hopes of attracting a husband. At that time, the standard for beauty was to look as if you had tuberculosis. They wanted pale skin, eyes that looked dilated, red cheeks and lips, and, of course, a tiny waist.

To achieve this standard of beauty, women went through extremes. They wore corsets so tight that they changed their bone structure and internal organs, took small doses of poison, and more. Ingesting tapeworms was one of the radical measures that used to lose weight.

This diet is still being used by some people today because, in theory, it seems like an easy way to lose weight without dieting or exercising regularly. In effect, it seems to be a “magic” pill. However, the reality is that its result may be far less than magical. source
