16 Of The Most Outrageous Viral Health Trends

Some outrageous health trends are only outrageous because of how far people take them. Certain types of fasting, like short fasts or intermittent fasting, can be beneficial. But actor Firass Dirani took it a bit further when he did a week-long water fast. For an entire week, all he drank was water (1.5 liters a day, to be exact). No food! Just water. Dirani claims the fast gave him “supersonic focus” and clarity. And presumably, helped him get intimately familiar with his bathroom. While some medical professionals say healthy people can undergo short fasts on their own, anything longer than three days should only be done under the supervision of a qualified practitioner.
