(Newser) – Another year, another diet book. What's new? The Wall Street Journal dishes the skinny—and the zany—for 2009:

  • I Can Make You Thinner, Paul McKenna: Train your brain to only eat when hungry (hypnosis cd included).
  • The Lemon Juice Diet, Teresa Cheung: The initial recipe—lemon juice, water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper—is reminiscent of the classic "Master Cleanse."

  • Flat Belly Diet!, Liz Vaccariello with Cynthia Sass: The editors of Prevention magazine push good fats (in extra-virgin olive oil, nuts and seeds, avocados and dark chocolate) washed down with "Sassy Water" (add ginger root, lemon, sliced cucumber and mint leaves).
  • The Lunch Box Diet, Simon Lovell: Pack a big box of meat, vegetables, and sauce and graze away all day long.
