Pre-diet sounds like the kind of thinking that says 'If I just do THIS... it'll be the *one thing* that makes me lose weight." Rather than realizing that if you just... apply portion control, eat whole foods, reduce processed foods and sugars, exercise regularly, track your nutrition intake to ensure you are getting a good balance, drink plenty of water, don't be unrealistically restrictive in your eating, and learn the skills and tools for life-long weight control and an overall healthy lifestyle, then you'll not just lose weight, you'll keep it off, have more energy, have less health issues, and won't have to fuss with stupid things like pills and "pre-diets".
But a pre-diet just sounds so much easier, doesn't it? If you just do that *one thing* instead of changing your lifestyle... you think you don't really have to make permanent lifestyle changes. You think you can hit that 'easy button' for a couple of weeks and that's all it takes.
Because deep down, as adults, we don't like being told we have to change our lifestyles, our eating habits, or our routines, so we will try to do the very least amount possible and then complain we don't see any results.
... so back on topic, no, I've never heard of one and I don't see that it will have any benefit whatsoever.
