Who needs to sweat at the local gym and lose the hard way when you can insert a tube into your body, lose your appetite for more than a week, and lose about 10-20 pounds in 10 days!?
If you really think the latter is a better option, shame on you.
But that’s what some women are doing to help get them in tip-top shape for their big day. It’s known as the K-E Diet. The ultimate in crash dieting, brides-to-be insert a tube through their nose, which runs to the stomach. According to ABC News, they’re fed a constant slow drip of the protein and fat they need, mixed with water that has no carbohydrates, and tops around 800 calories a day. During this feeding, body fat is burned off through a process called “ketosis,” which can still leave your muscles in good shape.
Dr. Oliver Di Pietro, a Florida-based doctor, seems to think the diet is a great and effective way to lose weight, even if it does sound…over-the-top as hell.
“It is a hunger-free, effective way of dieting,” Di Pietro said. “Within a few hours and your hunger and appetite go away completely, so patients are actually not hungry at all for the whole 10 days. That’s what is so amazing about this diet.”
Yeah, “amazing.” That’s the word I was thinking of (no, actually, I was going for crazy.) No need for hospitalization during the process, you just carry the bag around with you and keep the tube in your nose non-stop for 10 days. Aside from some possible uncomfortable constipation and generally bad breath, Dr. Di Pietro says the diet is good to go if you don’t have the time to devote to a strict workout regimen. Except if you have kidney issues, of course. If you do, you should stay far away from the diet.
I understand the want to fit in the gown of your dreams, but I hope women like this put just as much effort into their marriages as they do trying to fit in a dress they’re going to wear for one day. This whole wedding culture is getting a tad bit insane. I mean, Dr. Di Pietro actually charges $1,500 for this 10-day weight loss plan. Just think what money like that could be used for, but instead it’s being used to help you drastically lose weight to feel good for one day. Is it ever really that serious?
Would you ever consider trying the K-E Diet? Why or why not?
