Onion News Network: Lose Weight By Imagining Food As Horrific Nightmares (VIDEO)

Now that a potential writers strike was averted, it's back to business as usual for The Onion News Network. Although the second season of the IFC news parody does not air until Tuesday, October 4, viewers got to see a sneak peek of the new season on theonion.com.

The new video reports on a new method for weight loss: A psychedelic drug, Hallucex, that makes food appear to be monstrous, terrifying hallucinations. Scientists are optimistic about the drug, which makes food appear increasingly horrifying based on its nutritional value.

We're afraid to think how successful this product would be if it were actually released.
