This is crazy. To each their own but this sounds really CRAY CRAY!

"The K-E diet, which boasts promises of shedding 20 pounds in 10 days, is an increasingly popular alternative to ordinary calorie-counting programs. The program has dieters inserting a feeding tube into their nose that runs to the stomach. They're fed a constant slow drip of protein and fat, mixed with water, which contains zero carbohydrates and totals 800 calories a day. Body fat is burned off through a process called ketosis, which leaves muscle intact, Dr. Oliver Di Pietro of Bay Harbor Islands, Fla., said."

Same here! When I saw this, I reminded myself that I believe in "to each their own". This is definitely NOT for me.

$1500 ?!?!

For $1000, I can come to your house, empty your fridge, lock you in your own basement with a case of water and then come back in 10 days and let you out. Guaranteed 10 lb loss or I'll lock you up for 10 more days at no additional charge.

So sorry, I'm judging. This is terribly unhealthy and damn near guaranteed that the weight will come back as soon as you stop this nonsense.

Not only is this cool, its a neat face accessory for a while!

Then just go on an 800 calorie ketogenic diet?

This "feeding tube diet" is no magic. He puts them on 800 calorie liquid diet via a tube. But. . .you CAN eat with an NG tube in place, AND you can just DRINK the enteral nutrition so like. . .what's the point?

God, why don't *I* come up with scams like this and charge people $$$ for it. Freakin' ethics.

Haha I knew Id be judged but oh well. Id still do it. Its no more unhealthy then people who lay around all day and eat junk food. Ha ha but I dont have 1500 dollars so that dream is already shot ';D

This sounds like a fantastic idea!...for coma patients.

If you're a fully functional human being and think this is a sound way to lose weight, you should probably get your head checked.

Or brainwashed into thinking that they need a size 4 wedding dress rather than a size 6 that they'll do anything to get it. And. . .who can blame them, really? Women are bombarded with this information 24/7.

Baaah.... Sign me up!! Haah. Thats pretty funny sir... laugh

I just saw this on the news and I was SHOCKED that someone would actually put themself thru this. Should NG tubes be used on people who have medical needs? Not on people who are too lazy to exercise & eat healthy? Seriously...ridiculous!
