Tired of Eating? Try The IV Diet

September 18, 2008 by kristindiva
shefinds | Style

After spending Fashion Week with folks who look like they live on deep breaths, cigarettes, coffee, and anger, I often wonder if their diet regimen consists of an IV drip.

All kidding aside, I was evidently on to something. In a recent UK Daily Mail story, it appears the latest craze to get runway thin is to voluntarily hook oneself up to a banana/IV bag and take nutrients intravenously. Evidently, folks are bypassing the whole taste/chew/swallow/digest thing we all know and love for the bare minimum through the vein (evidently using your stomach is so last season). A procedure usually reserved for undernourished alcoholics has the diet-obsessed lining up for the newest in deprivation techniques, despite nutritionist warnings against brittle hair and nails, fatigue, irritability (per Fashion Week, this explains a lot), digestive system failure, and other maladies.

As someone who struggles with her weight, I understand wanting to get those pounds off but I draw the line at needles and IV bags. Have we truly come to the point where having body fat is so distasteful that we’re willing to pump our bodies with just enough vitamins to ensure that our brains and hearts don’t quit? 

For those of us who want to take some vitamins in through the skin without the needles or near-death experience, why not use infused bath products like Burt’s Bees Lemon and Vitamin E Bath and Body Oil ($8)?  Obviously, this is not a substitute for eating, but you can nourish your body and relax in a soothing bath and get out with healthy, glowing skin.

Because it doesn’t matter what they say – starvation is so 2007.
