Has the pre-wedding diet gone too far?

By:
Brides weigh in, literally. Wedding season is around the corner, but this year there is a new (and alarmingly popular) method for fitting into your dress. Enter the feeding-tube frenzy… The K-E diet is a new pre-nuptial diet craze that relies on a small feeding tube to administer a protein and vitamin-rich fluid to brides for 10-days. Little by little, fluid is deposited into the stomach (via the nasal passage) and is said to erase appetite completely. This liquefied concoction restricts your caloric intake to 800 calories/day and promises brides they will shed 20 pounds during the program. While you may agree with Kate Hudson in Bridesmaids-- “You don’t alter a Vera to fit you, you alter yourself to fit Vera.” --I highly doubt that Mrs. Wang would encourage feeding tube fittings. Not only are there unpleasant side effects (bad breath, exhaustion, and constipation to name a few), but you have to spend a week and a half with a tube coming out of your nose while you tote around a plastic bag of fluid. And this is somehow preferable to going to the gym? Perhaps as a non-bride-to-be I can’t appreciate the value of the K-E diet, but any process that promotes “leakage” and “nasal drip” seems to have crossed the proverbial fitness-fence from ingenious to terrifying/ridiculous. What do you think of this pre-wedding quick fix?
