This morning, Cory shared an article with me about the newest fad diet for brides-to-be.
That’s right ladies, for a small price of $1,500 you can have a feeding tube placed down your nose. Said feeding tube will allot you 800 calories per day, which will “helps” shock your body, resulting in rapid weight loss.
Nevermind the fact that side effects include severe constipation your breath smelling of sweet nail polish remover.
Sign me up!
I don’t think I have to spend too many words describing HOW CRAZY I think this is. I mean, really?! 800 calories a day? If I was on that diet, 500 of them would be gone by breakfast.
Maybe this irks me more than it should because I recently went through that “bride-to-be” phase. Except, I never went on a diet.

If homebody proposed to you when you weighed X pounds, WHY do you think you need to lose anything before your wedding day?
I understand that ladies say they “want to feel their best” on their special day, but 9 times out of 10, it turns into a psychotic obsession, and the majority of her engagement is spent worrying about a number on the scale.

I don’t think this feeding tube diet is going to become commonplace, but it’s just a reminder of the scary lengths that women will go to to become thinner. Ladies, if you want to drop a few pounds, be healthy! Eat some salmon and spend 30 minutes a day moving. It’s not as complicated as people make it out to be.
Let’s chat – Have you ever been on a fad diet? Did it work, or did you regret it? I tried South Beach for, like, 32 hours when I was in high school. Clearly, it didn’t last.
