I just saw this on GMA and it is SO extreme that I thought I’d share with you guys~
Its an article about a new fad diet brides are using… and its extreme!
Here’s an exerp from the article:
Brides-to-be looking to shed that final 10, 15 or 20 pounds in order to fit into their dream wedding gown have taken a controversial approach to crash dieting that involves inserting a feeding tube into their noses for up to 10 days for a quick fix to rapid weight loss.
The K-E diet, which boasts promises of shedding 20 pounds in 10 days, is an increasingly popular alternative to ordinary calorie-counting programs. The program has dieters inserting a feeding tube into their nose that runs to the stomach. They’re fed a constant slow drip of protein and fat, mixed with water, which contains zero carbohydrates and totals 800 calories a day. Body fat is burned off through a process called ketosis, which leaves muscle intact, Dr. Oliver Di Pietro of Bay Harbor Islands, Fla., said.
Here’s the link to the article…
IDK bout you guys but It made me feel a whole lot better/more sane about my own diet/exercise because I KNOW I’m being healthy and that my Fiance and everyone at my wedding will be happy and joyful whether I’m 10-20 lbs lighter or not…
Maybe worth it for some… but I think I can find MANY other uses for $1500! lol
What do you girls think? Would you do it?
A penny for your thoughts!
