Unfashionable Diet

Fashion week started yesterday.  In addition to the mounds of coverage about what’s going to be hot for the spring, there’s bound to be some ink devoted to physique of the runway models.  Someone will say they’re too thin and they will counter that they’re naturally that way and aren’t starving themselves.  Enter the Fashionista Cleanse.

According to the New York Post, the cleanse is an all liquid diet that promises to help you lose some weight.  For either 3 or 5 days…you drink nothing but a variety of fruit and veggie juices at each of your meals.  Those juices range from chlorophyll (the same stuff plants make) to a concoction of lemon, carrot, spinach, cucumber, celery, parsley and beet which the reporter says looks like a red velvet cupcake, but tastes anything butt but.

One of the juices you'll be drinking on the All Organic Avenue Fashionista Cleanse

Not sure you’ll drop weight on the diet, but your wallet will be thinner.  The Cleanse costs $350 for a 5 day regime and $280 for three days.

Obviously drinking only liquids for days at a time isn’t good for you.  The reporter test driving it suffered from headaches and lack of concentration, not to mention extreme hunger.  AND YET…no where do they consult a doctor or a nutritionist to support the fact that this diet is not a good idea. 

Sure there are  the cute puns about the awfulness of the diet, but they don’t come right out and say it.  They even go so far as to tell people how they can order the diet for themselves!  This seems like completely reckless journalism to me.  Read the article for yourself and tell me what you think.
