There has been a lot of media attention surrounding feeding tube diets this week and I'd like to address this weight loss diet, which has been mentioned by many sources, including the New York Times ( 

The American Society of Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition represents thousands of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians and other health care professionals working in clinical nutrition and does not support the use of feeding tubes for dieting. The focus on feeding tubes for drastic, short-term weight loss distracts from appropriate medical uses of feeding tubes and the impact on patient outcomes in those with cancer, stroke, trauma, and neurologic and gastrointestinal dysfunction (who would rather eat if they could!).  Additionally, the absence of carbohydrates in the K-E diet does not provide balanced nutrition, nor does this diet promote long-term or sustained weight loss. 

Bottom line: Feeding tubes are not an appropriate tool for weight loss.  Speak with a Registered Dietitian for tips on strategies for gradual and sustainable weight loss. Check out Dietitians of Canada, Eat Right Ontario, and Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide for additional resources.
