Crazy Has A New Name: The Feeding Tube Wedding Diet
How to lose weight, money, and your mind
Most brides crash diet before their wedding the old-fashioned way: a combination of eating less, exercising more, and stressing out about every little detail for weeks on end. But a growing number of brides-to-be have discovered a disturbing new weight loss tool — they have a doctor insert a feeding tube down their nose and through their esophagus, surviving for 10 days on nothing but a steady drip of liquid protein and fat.
It’s called ketogenic enteral nutrition, or the K-E diet, and it will set you back $1,500, according to The New York Times. That pickle juice and cayenne pepper “miracle” cleanse you read about in a bridal forum doesn’t sound so crazy now, does it?
We live in the age of Bridezillas and the lap band, so it’s no wonder brides are resorting to more extreme methods of weight loss before the big day. However, we have an even more radical suggestion for women desperate to fit into their wedding dress — eat healthy, go to the gym, and then find a dress that fits your body.
