    I'd consider it but it's too expensive at $1500 for 10 days. : (3 votes)

    It’s disgusting and sounds like it’s the first step to an eating disorder.  It’s not healthy to lose weight that fast.  Ugh, the ideas people come up with…

    Now, today…I wouldn’t do it, but then I did something a little more drastic and got a Lap Band a year and a half ago. Down 85 lbs so far and I still have 15 lbs to lose, but I’ve got plenty of time to do it and I know I will lose that and probably a little more.


    Had I not had that surgery, if I were desparate in trying to lose weight that quickly and I had the money, I’d probably do it too.

    I saw this on Good Morning America this morning & no I would never do it. It’s unhealthy and not to mention, I would feel really weird walking around & going to work with a feeding tube up my nose for 10 days.

    hahaha I just posted this same thing in media! lol

    I wouldn’t bc I’ve had success in my own diet/exercise journey and I know I can do it that way but I know a bride who would because she’s struggled her whole life to lose weight without much success so this would help her a lot.

    Now to give it $1500 of the wedding budget…? I dunno about that!

    No. Way. Not worth the expense or discomfort.

    HELL no. There is no way that is healthy, physically or mentally. A healthy amount of weight loss is 2lbs per week, not day.

    The solution? Don’t order your wedding dress too small.

    No way in HELL!

    That is just crazy and so bad for you. The weight would also be back on in a matter of days once you started eating normally again.

    Also, I have had a tube up my nose and into my upper GI tract. I had to wear it for 24 hours for acid pH monitoring.

    It was the most uncomfortable 24 hours. I could not tolerate that feeling for 10 days. Every time I swallowed the tube pulled against the inside of the top of my nose and it was really unpleasant. I also couldn’t sleep at night because every time I’d roll, the tube would pull.

    Sounds like 10 days of torture which results in a constipated, unhappy, hungry, and VERY sleepy bride.

    Be kind of awkward going to work with a tube hanging out of my nose, no thanks.

    I had one for 8 days after surgery, and it was not fun, at all.

    No. Well…no. Between being newly pregnant, not having $1500 dollars to shell out for this sort of thing, not seeing the need to lose weight at this time (let alone as much as 20 pounds), and not to mention Fiance would NEVER hear of me doing that (even if I WASN’T pregnant and money was no object for me) it’s. not. happening.


    The article had mentioned a process called ketosis. i thought that was a bad thing. I’ve also heard that losing more than one or two pounds per week can be dangerous.

    Darling Husband just sent me a link to this a couple of hours ago, and I was horrified. I have a significant eating disorder history, and I’m shocked that any doctor would willingly insert a feeding tube into a healthy woman for this reason. I wanted to look fab on my wedding day as much as anyone does, but this is extreme, and that’s putting it lightly.

    No way. I”ve had to have a feeding tube up my nose before and it sucks big time. You can constantly feel it and it’s just gross. Plus – for this “diet” (mine wasn’t!) you have to carry it around. Who the hell wants to do that? I didn’t it and I was sick. Plus what if someone asks – you explain that you’re doing this and paying $1,500 to loose ten pounds?
