Skipping breakfast, cold baths and black coffee are some of the extreme weight-loss techniques that are taking the dieting world by storm.
For more than a decade he helped the Hollywood elite trim down for the red carpet, and this year sports scientist, Venice A Fulton, released a six-week plan promising to get you 'skinnier that all your friends' in record time.
And now Six Weeks To OMG is quickly becoming one of the top slimming books on the market, overtaking manuals promoting the ever popular Dukan and Atkins Diets.
Sports scientist, Venice A Fulton, states that cold baths can help with weight loss
Based on a plan originally designed for Fulton's A-list clients, the OMG regime claims to use a mix of nutrition,
biochemistry, genetics and psychology, to help shift up to 20 pounds of body fat and reduce cellulite.
Contrary to the notion that eating small, frequent meals throughout the day is good for you, Fulton states that it's damaging, and instead encourages dieters to stick to three meals a day.
Although, instead of breakfast, he proposes a mid-morning meal at 10am to help boost the metabolism.
He says: 'In 2000, French researchers
reporting in the British Journal of Nutrition were among the first to
show that a typical high-energy breakfast of toast, yoghurt and fruit
actually blocked fat loss throughout the entire day.'

And to help eliminate the appearance of orange peel, Fulton suggests a combination of cold baths and black coffee.
In the chapter titled Skinny Dipping he states that plunging into cold water will cause the 'metabolic rate to shift to overdrive' and if you're not brave enough to immerse your whole body you can just expose your legs.
He adds: 'Most of us have a hard-wired fear of all
'It takes a few brave humans to stand up and try
'Eventually, the truth spreads from these explorers, and
makes all our lives better.'
He also reports that fruit juices and smoothies cause overeating and carbohydrates found in broccoli can be worse than those from full-fat Coke.
While the majority of reviews are positive, some remain unconvinced by Fulton's unconventional techniques.
'Thought I would buy the book and give it a go.
'Don't bother. You can't follow the programme if you don't own a bath or enjoy coffee!,' writes Kitchengeek on Amazon.
Last year experts from the British Dietetic
Association named the Dukan Diet the worst celebrity weight loss plan to
follow and said it has 'absolutely no solid science behind it at all'.
The slimming method which works on
restricting foods, calories and portion control. topped the BDA's annual
list of the five worst celebrity diets to avoid in the New Year.
As well as losing fat, Fulton reports that his OMG technique will also help flatten the belly, improve the condition of hair, skin and nails and help readers feel good about themselves.
