Living as an overweight child and teenager myself, I'd say YES.
But I did need to get healthy. I decided to lose the weight by eating healthy and dedicated a lot of time to exercise and finding what worked best for me!
HOWEVER, having said that: I do not judge any person based on their weight, fitness level or how they choose to lose weight, gain weight or whatever!!
But it does seem like more extreme measures are being taken to lose weight, but not the good old-fashioned HARD WORK, sweat, and dedication?
Maybe it's because I am still in shock over what my friend sent me via text message this afternoon...
the K-E Diet? Heard of it?
So basically it costs 1,500 bucks to insert a feeding tube for 10 days, restricting you to only a protein mixture that continually flows into your stomach, through your NOSE...with a great 800 calories a day, with zero carbs, claiming to burn body fat by putting your body into ketosis(which can be extremely dangerous!) and as they say in this clip from Good Morning America HERE, "the results speak for themselves"
Is this TOO far? Too extreme?
Am I the only one that had a jaw-dropping moment when I saw this article?
And I thought fad diets and hCG hormone therapy were extreme...this K-E Diet might be the most extreme that I've seen!!! Yikes.
What are your thoughts when it comes to extreme diets/weight-loss measures?
As I said before, if this is something you've considered, I urge you to use EXTREME caution, consult a doctor and DO NOT think these are the only solutions to weight loss.
If you believe in yourself, set goals and have a support system, you can do ANYTHING! Nothing feels better than reaching a goal you've set by hard work and dedication! When I crossed that 13.1 finish line, I had so many emotions about my weight loss journey and my struggles with failed diets throughout my life. I was SO happy because once and for all, I did it!
And you can to!
