Hello there, Shapelings:
• No doubt you remember hearing the story of Samantha Clowes, a British bride-to-be who died of heart failure while sustaining herself on diet of 530 calories a day. Well CNN sheds more light on medically supervised diets with the unintentionally hilariously titled article Extreme diets: Life on 800 calories a day. Life, indeed. The highlights include a quote from VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) participant Gordon Heitman who noted:
My hair did thin out and there were other side effects. There were leg cramps … and now they’re monitoring me for gallstones.
Other than those minor inconveniences Mr. Heitman says he’s thankful for the medical supervision he’s received thus far! And really aren’t gallstones and thinning hair completely worth it! Ketosis FTW!
•People Magazine is very pleased with Sara Rue’s seven pound weight loss in JUST FIVE DAYS. And Sara says:
But there’s nothing you can’t have on this plan. You just have to remember that nothing tastes as good as the first bite
Do you ever get the feeling celebrity weight loss statements read like Mad Libs?
Consider this an Open Thread, but be mindful that mods may not be around every second to keep things in check.
