Would You Put A Feeding Tube Down Your Nose To Lose Weight?

Another day, another ridiculous weight-loss scheme. Brides-to-be are now paying $US1500 to have a feeding tube inserted through their nose, from which they will live for 10 days off a slow-drip slurry of protein and fat.

The 800-calorie meal plan is just enough to shock your body into ketosis — burning all fat and no muscle — and its extended release keeps you feeling full all day long, which means they'll be able to slip into a smaller dress size on the big day.

The only drawbacks: the buildup of ketones in your body gives your breath a foul odour and makes your entire person smell like nail-polish remover. Also, constipation. [Yahoo via Buzzfeed]
