Desperate Brides Use Feeding Tubes To Drop 20 Pounds
Brides so desperate to lose weight they wear a feeding tube hoping to take off 20 pounds in 10 days.
The Today Show and the New York Times recently carried reports about the Florida clinic offering the procedure.
“People want to be perfect in this country and I’m allowing them to do that,” said Dr. Oliver DiPietro.
DiPietro inserts a tube through the nose into the stomach under local anesthesia.
“It’s slightly uncomfortable but not terrible,” he explained as he described the procedure which costs a bride $1,500.
The feeding pump delivers 800 calories a day with a combination of protein and fat.
“It’s so extreme and you have to walk around for 10 days, 24/7 with a feeding tube and your pouch,” said Portland personal trainer Alta Acosta-Carter. Full story here.
I’m still speechless. This really is taking dieting to the extremes. Surely most of these brides who resort to these drastic measures will eventually suffer months down the line when pounds start to pile back on. This is only a quick fix solution.
