Bride Adapts Nose-Tube Diet as Wedding Preparation

There was a time when brides prepped with a spa day and professional makeup and hair styling; now, according to a by the New York Times, they are turning to extended juice fasts and radical weight loss plans such as the K-E Diet which involves being administered a mere 800 calories a day through a tube that runs from the nose through the esophagus and into the stomach.

Like marked-up wedding dresses and exorbitant caterers, it all comes with a hefty price tag. But Jessica Schnaider, 41, of Surfside Florida, stuck with the K-E diet, for a cost of $1,500 for 10 days, in order to slim down for her June wedding. Her weight loss guru, Dr. Oliver R. Di Pietro explains that the tube administers a solution of protein and fat, but no carbohydrates. This puts the body into a state of ketosis, which can lead to quick weight loss because it starts burning fat instead of sugars (carbohydrates) for energy. Nose tube diets promise to help you lose as many as 20 pounds in less than two weeks.


While Schneider and other brides-to-be who engage in extreme weight loss plans often do shed pounds prior to their wedding day, critics warn that crash diets can cause side effects such as kidney stones, headaches, dizziness, vitamin deficiencies, and dehydration. They can also lead to weight cycling—when you gain back more pounds than you lost.

Like marriage, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is a marathon, not a sprint. Its no surprise brides want to look gorgeous on their wedding day, but being skinny for photographs certainly won’t prevent a divorce.

What do you think of the K-E Diet? Would you be willing to go through it to prepare for your own wedding?
