Feeding Tube Diet Catches On With Brides-to-Be, See Celebs' Extreme Weight Loss Regimens (PHOTOS)
The latest wave in weight loss requires no eating at all, but rather a feeding tube that is inserted into through the nose to send nutrients. ABC News reported that brides-to-be are using the shocking fad diet to lose up 20 pounds fast before their wedding, and since news of the weight loss craze hit the web, it's all anyone can talk about.
"It is a hunger-free, effective way of dieting," Di Pietro told the broadcast. "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. That's what is so amazing about this diet."
But this isn't the first (and certainly won't be the last) extreme measure we've seen people take to shed a few pounds. Celebs have been doing crazy diets for years in an effort to land a film role or fit into their red carpet gowns.
Seeing as the feeding tube diet has shocked us all, we wanted to remind you of other diets tried in order to tip the scales in stars' favor. Check out the gallery above.
It was reported this past month that Anne Hathaway is on a 500 calorie diet to lose some weight for her role in Les Miserables. Though not as drastic as the feeding tube diet, the Daily Mirror reports, “Producers have assigned her a personal trainer and she is literally eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake.”
Do you think this weight loss regimens such as this are too extreme for a role or a wedding, or is it okay if it's only for a short period of time? Sound off in the comments.
