A freezing cold bath, black coffee and skipping breakfast is not anyone's idea of a pleasant morning, but U.K. "sports scientist" Venice Fulton claims this routine is your gateway to losing weight and even doing away with cellulite.

Fulton's e-book, "Six Weeks to OMG," is quickly becoming one of the top-selling diet publications out there.

"We've been listening to the same diet rules for years and they've become so ingrained in our culture that we won't  listen to anything new," Fulton says. "Take breakfast. We've all heard the saying: 'Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper.'"

But Fulton believes that by delaying food intake after waking up, we are giving our bodies a chance to use stored fat as fuel. He also preaches against the widely held belief that four or five small meals throughout the day are healthier than three squares.

And according to the Daily Mail, Fulton claims that carbohydrates found in broccoli can be worse than those from regular Coke.

Some of Fulton's opinions on weight-loss are controversial, to say the least. His blog also features some eyebrow-raising opinions, including a recent entry where he rants that doctors can't be trusted when it comes to offering advice on diets and nutrition:

A doctor spends a lot of time studying, usually between 5 and 6 years.  Some of the time is dedicated to the basics, anatomy and physiology.  There's even a bit of psychology. The massive majority of the syllabus concentrates on pharmacology, i.e. learning about drugs, how they work, what and when to prescribe them... this means that very little time is spent on diet, or indeed exercise, and the relationship between the two.  In simple terms, doctors are the mechanics who patch things up when they go wrong.  I'm extremely grateful for the job they do, and have fond memories of doctors visiting me as a child, and making me better again.  But in terms of preventative advice, they can't be trusted.  In terms of cutting-edge advice, they're even more behind the times.

Despite Fulton's protests, before starting any dramatically different new diet or exercise regimen, it is important that you consult with your medical health professional.

Whether or not the advice in "Six Weeks to OMG" actually works, at least this particular fad diet allows people to eat, you know, food.
