Brides’ Extreme Nose-tube Diet

Brides’ Extreme Nose-tube Diet, Bridal Diet CrazesEvery woman wants to look her best on her wedding day. All eyes (and camera phones) will be focused on her as she teeters down the aisle on brand new heels or attempts to look elegant while being fed a crumbling hunk of wedding cake. There was a time when brides prepped with a spa day and professional makeup and hair styling; now, according to a report by the New York Times, they are turning to extended juice fasts and radical weight loss plans such as the K-E Diet which involves being administered a mere 800 calories a day through a tube that runs from the nose through the esophagus and into the stomach. And like marked-up wedding dresses and exorbitant caterers, it all comes with a hefty price tag.
“People think I’m sick, I’m dying,” Jessica Schnaider, 41, of Surfside Florida, told the Times referring to people’s reaction to seeing her wearing a nasogastric feeding tube attached to a portable plastic bag of low-cal liquid nourishment. During the program, she skipped picking up her daughters at school because she didn’t want to scare the other children.
Still, Schnaider stuck with the K-E diet, for a cost of $1,500 for 10 days, in order to slim down for her June wedding. Her weight loss guru, Dr. Oliver R. Di Pietro explains that the tube administers a solution of protein and fat, but no carbohydrates. This puts the body into a state of ketosis, which can lead to quick weight loss because it starts burning fat instead of sugars (carbohydrates) for energy. Other diets such as Dukan, South Beach, and Atkins operate on a similar principle-but with more calories, actual food, and no nasal tube.
