(Newser) – Snooki of the Jersey Shore is going on a cookie diet—which sounds downright yummy compared to some of the other crazy diets she and her fellow celebrities have tried. (In high school, Snooks would “suck on ice cubes for hours” instead of eating, a friend says.) The Frisky found 9 more similarly insane-sounding regimens:

  • Mariah Carey: Her purple food diet involves eating grapes, plums, beetroots—and nothing but—for three days each week.
  • Victoria Beckham: Insisted the Spice Girls subsist on strawberries, lettuce, and edamame; now, when she goes to lunch with Katie Holmes, they split a small salad—sans dressing.

  • Milla Jovovich: In an effort to lose baby weight, she once ate nothing but oatmeal, salmon, and artichokes for an entire week.
  • Paris Hilton: On one excursion to Nobu, she drank water and Red Bull instead of eating.
  • Britney Spears: Her “dieting techniques” have consisted of Adderall, a stimulant, and lots of laxatives.
