Using Nose Feeding Tubes Becomes Trendy Lose-Weight-Fast Diet

Quote:
t’s truly disturbing when doctors come up with seemingly fad diets that could prove dangerous, but that appears to be happening all the time and most of them are also pretty successful. The latest to join the trend is an American doctor who is providing a drastic and quick weight-loss method, the K-E Diet. It involves putting food into your body through the nose, using a dripping tube.

The K-E diet stands for Ketogenic Enteral Nutrition diet and is the work of Dr. Oliver di Pietro, from Florida. He promises to help anyone shed 20 lb in as little as 10 days. As a part of the diet, dieters have to get a small nasogastric tube inserted into their nose going all the way to the stomach, through which a liquid solution drips constantly. The solution supposedly contains a mix of protein, fat and water and makes up 800 calories. A few hours of this and a process called ketosis is said to be triggered, which burns body fat due to the lack of carbohydrates. The fat is burned but the muscle and water in the body remain untouched. Dieters who want to achieve the best results aren’t supposed to eat anything for a period of 10 days and also have to carry around the bag of nutritious fluid everywhere they go.

What about hunger? Dr. Di Pietro has an answer for that, “Within a few hours, your hunger and appetite go away completely, so patients are actually not hungry for the whole 10 days. That’s what so amazing about this diet.” I’d also like to add that that’s what so unnatural about this diet. Aren’t hunger and appetite a part of a normal, healthy person’s life? But the doctor seems unfazed by such thoughts. He’s very happy with the results the K-E diet has brought about. “Patients typically burn around 2 pounds of fat per day. In every 100,000 patients I treated in Europe, nearly every one lost 20 lbs in 10 days. It’s absolutely painless – the stage of ketosis causes no pain. In fact, during the ketosis stage you feel no hunger and have a suppressed appetite.” Of course, after the diet is completed one needs to continue on a low carb diet to maintain the loss, he points out. So far, the diet has become very popular among brides-to-be, who are desperate to lose all those extra pounds before their big day.
Naturally, the K-E diet has got a few people concerned over the health hazard that it poses. According to nutritionist Suzy Weems, from Baylor University, eating through the nose could certainly cause long-term health damage. “It seems very extreme because of its potential for infections and irritations. It seems to be illogical to do this for one fairy-tale day when most brides have plenty of time before their wedding to lose weight the healthy way. The long-term solution to maintain a good weight is to eat right and exercise,” she says. Dr. Di Pietro does accept that there are some side effects to the diet, minor ones such as bad breath and constipation because there is no fiber in the food, but I suppose being constipated for 10 days is worth it if it means being able to slip into that dream dress on the wedding day.
At $1,500 per 10 days the K-E diet sure is expensive, but the doctor says the before and after pictures talk for themselves about the results.

Re: Using Nose Feeding Tubes Becomes Trendy Lose-Weight-Fast Diet

Wanna know a way to get rid of being a fatass?

Tabetta method on front squats and HIIT cycling in the gym.

Walk around 2-3 miles 3 days a week and enjoy the countryside. Eat good food and yes, you cna have those foods you desire, just stop eating 5 times the amount you need.

Simple, quick and you get a better lifestyle as a result.

But noooo... people need to be told you have to get personal trainers and shit like that.

Re: Using Nose Feeding Tubes Becomes Trendy Lose-Weight-Fast Diet

I don't understand why brides go out of their way to look entirely different on their wedding days than they do any other day of their life. What do you do? Pull out pictures when you feel down and say, "Look how great I looked our our wedding day, sweetheart?", and then kill yourself?

Re: Using Nose Feeding Tubes Becomes Trendy Lose-Weight-Fast Diet

did i hear him say nearly everyone lost 20# or 1% of their body weight? well those who lost 1% of their body weight obviously lost less than 20 pounds unless they just happened to weigh over 2,000# to start with.

so lets say someone weighs 150# and is hoping to lose 20#. so they pay the $1,500 and do their ten days.

they don't lose 20# but they did lose 1% of their weight. hmmm...lets see. by my math, they would have lost one and a half pounds. that would have cost them $1,000 per pound lost.

and then they will have to exercise and watch their diet as to not gain that one and a half pounds back. after all, anyone looks much slimmer at 148 and 1/2# than they do at 150# (see advertisement below).
