The Feeding Tube Diet: SERIOUSLY?!?!

 Everybody is looking for an easy weight loss solution. It seems like a lot of people would rather want quick weight loss solutions rather than putting the effort to drop those excess pounds the right way. I have heard of many ways that people are using to lose weight. And sometimes it shocks me and other times it does not. This was one time my mouth actually dropped. The weight loss solution: The Feeding Tube Diet. I read about it in an article in the New York Times. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/fashion/weddings/readers-respond-to-brides-losing-weight-for-weddings.html 
So what does this diet entail? The following are the details of this obnoxious unhealthy diet:
  •  A feeding tube insterted in your nose that goes to your stomach providing your body 800kcal
  • Food allowance during the day: NONE! ZERO! NADA!
  • Only allowed: water, unsweetened tea, or coffee
  • 10 day treatment
  • Results: lose 1% of body weight in 10 days. 
  • Cost: $1500
OK SERIOUSLY??? 1500 bucks for you to put a tube in nose and then starve all day. WOW this sounds like fun!!!! NOT! What are people thinking? In the article that I read about this diet it was mainly brides doing this to lose those stubborn 15-20 pounds before their wedding. WHY??? You are getting married obviously your significant other does not mind those extra 15-20 pounds so why do you? 
Skinny is not beautiful.
"Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical."
