Nasal Tube Dieting: You Have Got To Be Kidding Me…

Honestly, this morning I had one of those moments when I said to myself, ‘Just when I thought I had seen it all, THIS comes along’.  I have been working in the weight loss industry for 15 years and have witnessed all types of weight loss companies / books / fads / diets / techniques come and go.  But this one takes the cake…are you ready for it?  Ok, so this diet does NOT involve you eating any food:  instead you are fed via a tube which is inserted into your nose!  Really….

Of course, this ‘new’ weight loss technique has been developed in the USA and is called the K-E diet.  For a mere $1500, you can be fed via a tube for 10 days and apparently, this is becoming very popular for brides-to-be who are desperate to drop a few kilograms before the big day. 

The person who is on the K-E diet is supposed to eat nothing for the full ten day term, as all the ‘nutrition’ the dieter needs is delivered via the nasal tube.  That’s right – 800 calories per day is delivered to your body via your nostril (and you thought you just needed your nostril for breathing!).  Side effects of the diet include lack of energy, bad breath, constipation and is potentially dangerous for people with kidney problems.  You can read more about it here:  http://news.ninemsn.com.au/health/8452470/us-brides-use-feeding-tubes-to-lose-weight

Words cannot describe how very unhealthy (and totally ridiculous) the K-E diet is.  Providing the person does not eat anything, I am sure that the scales will show some ‘weight loss.  However, this weight loss will be extremely short-lived – in fact, the rebound weight gain will be almost immediate due to the virtual ‘starvation’ the body had to endure for 10-days.  And is this ‘diet’ lifestyle friendly?  I think not!  Going to a café to meet a friend for a coffee with a tube protruding from your nose will no doubt draw more than just a little attention from startled onlookers…oh dear.

    This is about as crazy as it gets, but I guess that at least the ‘procedure’ is reversible, unlike some of the extreme surgery options people embark on. How do they think they will stop the ‘patient’ simply cheating be putting other things in their mouth.
