10 Women Who Killed Themselves Trying To Lose Weight

10. Kirsty Hughes of Wales had put on some weight after having her 3- and 1-year-old sons. One night, on a cigarette run, the 26-year-old mom ran into a drug dealer and bought four bags of meow meow – or Mephedrone, which causes extreme weight loss in a short time. She took two of them before going to bed. Later that night, she was sweating and breathing in gasps. When she awoke her father, she was having a panic attack and had to drink large amounts of water. She told him she had taken the drug, then she collapsed. She said: “Look after my boys. I think I’m dying.” With that, Kirsty did, indeed, died.

9. Sarah Houston was 23 and had an incredible lust for life, as she had traveled the world and was studying to be a doctor. She had written herself a daily reminder that she placed beside her bed, saying: “If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way. She was that kind of person. But Sarah had a secret: she had suffered from eating disorder since she was 14. She felt she had dealt with the worst of it and was taking the drug DNP, which she purchased over the internet, to keep it in check. She spoke of feeling hot one evening and she was breathing heavily. She died later that night. The coroner ruled the drug was entirely responsible for her death.

8. Alina Ponamareva was a student in Russia in 2009. She was also a perfectionist, looking for ways to keep her body in perfect form. For quite a while, she had stopped eating meat and her favorite home-cooked pies. She was only eating curds and fruit. When her parents had not heard from her in a while, they broke into her apartment and found her lying on the floor. She had died of a heart attack. On a table was a book called “Hunger Treatment,” and it was open to the chapter, “How to lose weight in 12 days. She had marked off all the days except the final one. In her nearby diary, her last entry was: “Life is good, and I like living.”

7. There are two body parts which, if manipulated, can cause weight loss. Well, at least, that’s what some say. The first is ear stapling, where the inner cartilage is believed to be a pressure point that decreases one’s appetite. The other is the tongue patch, which is placed on top of the tongue to make eating of any type of solid foods very painful, thus causing weight loss. Now let me just say that despite whatever POSSIBLE weight loss these two methods may bring, they can cause infections, swelling, pain and extreme discomfort. In other words, don’t do it.

6. Two other weight loss fads are out there. One is the cotton ball diet, which involves dipping cotton balls in orange juice, lemonade or a smoothie and swallowing the cotton ball. This may sound cool but it can cause some serious problems, including choking, malnutrition and intestinal obstructions. The other is eating tissue paper. Some models, in order to keep their bodies in a very slender way, are known to do this because it makes them feel full. It actually starves the body of vital nutrients. If you know of someone contemplating these methods, please stop them.

5. Ok, let’s take a little breather and go in a little bit of a different direction. After Heather Jones lost her partner, she fell into a deep depression. She was eating comfort foods to deal with it and started gaining weight. She hit rock bottom and began having thoughts about ending it all. Then she discovered a little thing called the Emotional Freedom Technique, which basically retrains your mind to think differently by removing blockages in the energy system that cause intensity and discomfort. Within a few months, Heather had lost several dress sizes. She says: “It was effortless and I felt so powerful. My thoughts, habits and behavior were completely changed.” Heather has quit her job as a photographer and started her own business, The Brain Trainer, to help others THINK about losing weight. Now we’re not trying to promote this method, but that’s the kind of story we like to hear.

4. I’m no Dr. Oz, but here are a couple more things one should steer clear of. Tube feeding, where a tube is put into the nose and lowered into the stomach. The solution has 800 calories of water, fat and protein and a person can lose up to 20 pounds in 10 days. But let me tell you, after a recent operation on my mid-section, they put a tube up my nose and it was NOT a party. I was screaming and fighting all the way. Not fun. Aside from extreme discomfort, it can cause fatigue and constipation and can hurt your kidneys and liver. Also, the hCG diet can release hormones into the body like that of a pregnant woman and provide the fat to feed a party of two. But this leads to starvation. It’s not FDA approved.

    I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. Four months ago I
    went to my Dr’s office I weighed 245 pounds. My blood pressure was high. My
    A1C was 9. I started eating LUNA bars and drinking high protein boost. I
    did this every morning and for lunch. I recently went back to my Dr’s
    office, I am proud to say I lost 21 pounds. my A1C is 5. My blood pressure
    is still a a problem. So there are healthy ways to lose the weight. I
    currently am still sticking with that diet.
