A New Cleanse Involves Eating Tacos All Day, 2016 Officially Rocks

BY: TROY FRISBY

It's New Year's resolution time, meaning crash diet season is upon us once again. But if the thought of maple syrup, lemons and cayenne pepper leaves you feeling sick in the stomach, a new cleanse where you only eat tacos will whet your appetite!

And while it may leave you sick to your stomach, The Taco Cleanse is a real thing, and it's been dubbed "the tortilla-based diet proven to change your life."

The cleanse was dreamed up by two "taco scientists," which seems like pretty much the best job ever. They're even wearing lab coats for a demo at a book store!

"The Taco Cleanse" is a vegan cookbook filled with recipes designed to replace every meal for either a day or a month with tacos.

The book offers a taco quiz, where you can find out what kind of taco-eater you are, like one of those "Cosmo" quizzes!

The cleanse even has magical powers! The site reads, "Are you looking to grow a beard? The Taco Cleanse has been shown to produce a glorious beard for the formerly hairless!"

The Taco Cleanse folks write that the whole thing is satire, so if you were planning on taking beard growing tips from a site dedicated to tacos, you're barking up the wrong tree.

But again, the idea and recipes are real, and you can pick up the book for around $10 on Amazon.

And if reading more was another 2016 resolution, you can kill two birds with one stone (and some delicious tacos).
