Stop the World I Want Off

This world is full of stupid people.  I was at work today and was reading an article from "Fitbie" that just about made me toss my cookies. The article discussed the new K-E diet. Of all the most extreme ways to loose weight this one just about takes the cake.

Yes behold the feeding tube diet............... Oh Lordy......

I can just see it now legions of soccer moms with tubes up their noses and food bags at their sides. The article quoted a woman saying "I don't have time to work out"...... I was thinking um yeah right! But you do have time to go to several doctor appointments and follow-ups for this hair brained fad. And how much do people pay to have a tube give them what amounts to "Ensure Drink"  pumped in through their noses 1,500.00 for for the 10 day procedure. And the weight loss, get this up to 20 pounds. This just seems like a business designed to separate people from their money. After all if you really wanted to do this just sip on two Ensure drinks throughout the day mixed with enough water for hydration and that would approximate the diet. Although that would require the pesky time consuming process of eating and drinking actual food. Oh for about 40 dollars in dietary drink you too could have this diet. Some people are too stupid for their own good. Let's hope this stupidity goes the way of the pet rock, troll dolls, and beanie babies.

My diet though while not perfect is a hell of a lot more healthy as I am eating real food. I am currently eating 1,200 - 1,500 calories per day with a dietary spread of 40-30-30. That is 40 percent Carbs,  30 percent lean protein, and 30 percent healthy fats. On some days I am allowing myself a  little bit of leeway for BBQ's etc but all in all not bad. And I've lost 2 pounds this last week so I'm on my way to where I need to be.
