When it comes to commercial weight loss programs and gimmicks these days, it is safe to say that you can leave all common sense at the door. From Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig to fat burners and CraigsList there are ads, ads and more ads; all of which offer the promise of a new day when It comes to “losing weight and feeling great!”
The disconnect comes from a certain sense of desperation and gullibility. Even people who possess a great deal of common sense are lulled into a state of hypnotized bemusement by magical claims of effortless weight loss. Again, and again, and again.
The latest misguided fad in the battle of the bulge is called the K-E Diet. And if you think the KE stands for “Keep Eating” you should probably stop reading right about here.
"K-E" stands for ketogenic enteral nutrition. "Ketogenic" may sound familiar, because it refers to the burning of ketone bodies that occurs with a very low intake of carbohydrates.
Or you can call it what doctors have been calling this procedure for years, the nasogastric tube diet. The K-E diet involves inserting a feeding tube into the nose, down the esophagus, through the stomach, and into the duodenum, and then infusing a feeding solution continuously.

This is normally done in the hospital setting for patients who cannot eat. For the K-E diet, however, it's for brides-to-be who want to lose 10 pounds or so in a hurry to look good in a wedding dress.

This "diet" is completely leaning toward insanity on the part of any such bride-to-be, along with a complete set of misplaced priorities on the part of any groom-to-be watching it happen. Not to mention a profound obliteration of professional ethics on the part of doctors peddling it (for $1,500).
Instead of doing the K-E Diet, why not wait for the inevitable “Chemotherapy Diet” where you can lose your weight and your hair all in one shot?
Fortunately for us not all doctors have lost their ethical integrity when it comes to helping people lose weight. Since 2004, doctors and other medical professionals in the United States and Canada have been helping people lose weight through the Genetix Program, a medically guided weight loss program that helps people to lose their weight through guidance, education and positive support. This program is based on certified weight loss counselors that talk to their clients on a daily basis to offer support and accountability to ensure natural weight loss. The weight loss is fast, guaranteed, a fraction of the cost of other weight loss programs and best of all, it is done entirely through the telephone. I’m not going to mention the irony that the program being done in the hospital involves a tube shoved down your nose and the program involving the doctors on the phone being wireless.
As for the doctors involved in peddling the K-E Diet, their actions should be condemned. The job of physicians is to offer their patients the highest standard of care, not to jeopardize their patient’s lives on a whim for a
