How far would you go to lose 10 pounds?
Well, some women are taking it to another level. Have you heard of the K-E diet? What is this diet? Well, it's simple, you get a feeding tube inserted in your nose and you eat nothing for 10 days.
Yep, I'm serious. According to Dr. Oliver Di Pietro, "Your hunger and appetite go away completely, so patients are absolutely not hungry at all for the whole 10 days." The "food" solution is made up of a protein and fat mixture that total's 800 calories a day.
OK, but what about the fact that you have to walk around with a tube in your nose all day long for 10 days?
Jessica Schnaider, according to KABC News, who wanted to lose 10 pounds before her wedding decided to give the K-E diet a try under a doctor's supervision. She said "It was emotionally like, difficult," said Schnaider. "Sometimes I had to give explanations to people who were asking 'Jessica what's up with you? Are you sick? Are you dying?' And I was like, 'No I'm not sick, I'm not dying, I'm fine!"
