Photographer Stéphanie Gonot's food photos aren't the stylized, sexy kind you'd see on the cover of magazines like Bon Appetit. Images in her 'Fad Diets' series are frightening visual documents of some of the weirder diets out there, while also being striking experiments in color and texture. They may not make your mouth water, but they are a lot of fun, and might just make you reconsider that crash diet...

Here's a selection of her work, from 'Fad Diets' and other series'. Her website, www.stephaniegonot.com is well worth checking out.
