Would You Wear a Tube in Your Nose to Lose Weight? (VIDEO)

K-E Diet

The New York Times recently reported on the latest extreme dieting measure that brides are using in order to lose weight fast for the big day.

Called the K-E Diet, the brides-to-be (and, as you can see above, plenty of non-brides as well) have a tube inserted through their nose and down into their esophagus. Dieters are fed a liquid diet through that tube for up to ten days.

THE WHAT?!

This just goes to show you how intent people are on finding shortcuts to shedding pounds -- They'll look like this for ten days ...

K-E Diet...all to lose weight as quickly as possible!

According to the Times, the K-E Diet costs $1500 for ten days and those willing to wear a tube in their nose 24-7 will be rewarded with weight loss of up to 20 pounds.

The Times interviewed one bride who's a fan of the diet. She had this to say about the tube aspect of it:

People think I’m sick, I’m dying...” She refrained from going into her daughters’ school. “The children, they would be scared,” she said.

Yet the diet worked for her. She had to have the tube removed early, because she lost ten pounds in only eight days.

While the K-E Diet is new here in the states, it's been around for years in Italy and Spain and has been available in England for about a year.

Given how crazy Americans are about fad diets, I can't help but wonder if we're going to have to become used to seeing women and men walking around now with tubes up their noses now ...

Let's hope not!
