When I found out about this new approach of losing 20 pounds in 10 days.. I felt sick.
Brides to be are paying a doctor $1,500 to insert a feeding tube through their noses in order to lose weight. This new diet is called the KE diet and doctors are promising a loss of 20 pounds in just 10 days, unreal! KE Dieters are given 800 calories a day and doctors say the mixture prompts their body to enter a state of ketosis, burning its own fat supply for energy.
“Dieters insert a feeding tube into their nose, which runs to the stomach. They’re fed a constant slow drip of protein and fat mixed with water, zero carbs…”
“Lack of energy, bad breath and constipation are just some of the side effects reported to occur and psychologists worry that dropping weight so rapidly can be mentally traumatic.”
“The tubes are removable for one hour a day, and patients can drink water, tea or coffee throughout the day.”
I don’t know about you, but this all sounds disturbing to me. Living a healthy lifestyle and knowing your portion sizes is what is important. Quick weight loss never leads to anything worthwhile and certainly cutting out carbohydrates is not the answer. What are your thoughts/opinions on this?
