The K-E Diet: Brides to be using feeding tubes to rapidly shed pounds!
“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”
As a personal trainer I work with a lot of brides to be who dream of their appearance on the big day and probably like yourself am horrified to read about this “K-E” diet. The body is simply just not designed to utilize liquids alone. The stomach needs something solid to chew on for starters. The lack of fibre in this diet (similar to aikens) makes me wonder what sort of bathroom experiences these poor future brides are going through. One has no idea how the body will react to this tubing method particularly after the event.
Preparation is key. No matter what your goals are, firstly give yourself an adequate timeframe to realise them. Secondly, visualize yourself achieving your goal with your “mind’s eye” this is commonly known as your third eye.
Lastly set out a daily/weekly plan to get yourself there as part of an established and approved exercise plan.
Changing your appearance takes effort and I guarantee you will feel so proud of yourself for achieving your goal in a more natural manner. If a “doctor” tries to persuade you to open your nostrals, do your body a favour and tell him to stick the tubing….. ;-).
