That diet is pants


Senior Member
Dear all
The following text comes from a novel called A Tiny Bit Marvellous.

Even after all the bloody endless
white food I’ve been scoffi ng, I haven’t like lost a single gram.
That diet is pants.

What does it mean by "That diet is pants"?
Could someone please tell me?

    Pants is a (horrible!) slang expression used to describe something that one considers to be useless/no good/really bad. It was commonly used by young people here in England about five or six years ago. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be used much now. Needless to say that most people of my age did not use it.
