Thought it couldn’t get any crazier than the baby food diet or the swallow a tapeworm diet? While surfing around gossip blogs today, I ran across a reference to celebrities going on an “IV diet.” As in intravenous. Diet. I found the blurb here:
One of Hollywood’s dirty little secrets is the ‘IV diet’, in which celebrities check themselves into hospital to get put on an IV so they can avoid eating altogether.
Obviously only celebrities are rich enough to get away with claiming “exhaustion” and then paying someone to help them starve themselves for a week at a time—it’s like the celebrity version of having your mouth wired shut. But for some reason I also thought being on an IV made you puffy—did I make that up? I might need some science up in here.
