4/16    "The K-E Diet: Brides-to-Be Using Feeding Tubes to Rapidly Shed Pounds"
        http://www.csua.org/u/w2x (gma.yahoo.com)
        I can't help noticing in the video:
        - how the doctor stayed standing up while examing this Jessica
          Schnaider sitting down,
        - how often he checked her heartbeat with his stethoscope, while
          standing up,
        - how convenient for her doctor the way she wore her button shirt was
          when she walked in to the office.
        \_ Why does her doctor need to listen to her heart so much? She isn't
           there for her heart disease.
           \_ Exactly.  I think she's building up a media presence to pave her
              way to a reality show.  And I think the doctor is knowingly in
              it.

12/30   Women on jdate look hot. Do I need to give up bacon to
        date them?
        \_ http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-04-10
        \_ Don't know, but you may have to give up your foreskin to date them.
           \_ I think this is a deal breaker for most men, and why
              throughout history Christianity always overwhelms Judaism.

html#vid=28966712&browseCaro uselUI=hide&autoPlay=true Brides-to-be looking to shed that final 10, 15 or 20 pounds in order to fit into their dream wedding gown have taken a controversial approach to crash dieting that involves inserting a feeding tube into their noses for up to 10 days for a quick fix to rapid weight loss. 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. "It is a hunger-free, effective way of dieting," Di Pietro said. "Within a few hours and your hunger and appetite go away completely, so patients are actually not hungry at all for the whole 10 days. Di Pietro says patients are under a doctor's supervision, although they're not hospitalized during the dieting process. Instead, they carry the food solution with them, in a bag, like a purse, keeping the tube in their nose for 10 days straight. there is some constipation because there is no fiber in the food," he said. Slipping into a wedding gown for a dream wedding is a moment of truth for most brides, but as many say that there is a real fear that it will not quite fit. "I don't have all of the time on the planet just to focus an hour and a half a day to exercise so I came to the doctor, I saw the diet, and I said, 'You know what? Schnaider said she was never hungry throughout the 10 days she was on the K-E diet, but admits that it still wasn't easy. "It was emotionally difficult, the 10 days of not eating," Schnaider said. "And sometimes I had to give excuses to people who were asking are you sick? The doctor told me that if you can compliment with walking for a half an hour on the beach, that would be great, but I didn't feel like doing that. I'm a very energetic person, but those days I was a little tired." Although the K-E diet is new to the United States, it has been around for years in Europe. Di Pietro charges $1,500 for the 10-day plan, and says the before-and-after pictures sell themselves. But critics warn that losing too much weight too fast can be dangerous, and it ultimately won't last. Di Pietro warns that people with kidney issues should avoid the diet. Many doctors also say that with so much pressure on brides to be perfect, it's easy to understand why this kind of rapid weight loss might seem appealing, but might not be healthy. "If you lose the weight too quickly your mind is not going to be able to catch up with a newer, skinnier you," psychoanalyst Bethany Marshall of Beverly Hills, Calif. Schnaider says that in her case she actually only kept her tube in for eight of the 10 days, skipping the last two because she'd already lost the 10 pounds she wanted. She has kept it off so far, saying she is looking forward to her big day this summer. Detroit, Michigan o 7 days ago Mother Nature has to be so close to pushing the reset button on our species. Take it all back to formula cause somewhere that Stupidity Gene ran amok. New York, New York o 7 days ago Apparently no idea is too stupid to get women to cough up cash. " We seal you in a cave (a nice cave with amenities like cable tv) and send down just enough food to keep you alive. I'm currently on a balanced new diet and have lost 5 pounds in three weeks, and I feel pretty good about that. I would rather have hunger pains at night than have a tube up my nose and down my throat. You will be glowing from the inside out, and when you look at your man(or woman) at the end of that red carpet, nothing else will matter as much to you! Why would the person you are marrying want you to be anything other than the person he/she fell in love with? Such a stupid thing to do, just so you look a little slimmer in your wedding photos. I cannot imagine you stopped thinking about yourself long enough to even have the time to attract a mate. Stags_Leap_Guy o 7 days ago The FDA allows this crap, but won't allow raw milk, wants to limit access to vitamins and supplements, and doesn't require labeling of GMO foods and Pink Slime. Atlanta, Georgia o 7 days ago Why not buy a wedding dress that fits instead of a small one then trying to lose the pounds? Are 2 sizes smaller dresses that much cheaper that a bigger one? Phoenix, Arizona o 6 days ago A bowl of oatmeal a day and 12 hours cleaning and scrubbing will cause the same weight loss and give you better muscle tone too, plus your home will be clean and you will still have the $1500 in the bank - and you will leave a good impression on the groom, instead of looking like a cyborg nightmare!
