Death by Celery: Man on Celery Diet Found Dead
YESTERDAY BO THOMAS WAS FOUND DEAD IN HIS HOME IN CLARKSVILLE, ARKANSAS -
Steve Hill, a neighbor of Thomas, noticed that Thomas had not left his home in several days. "Bo usually went on his celery run each day about the time I did my relaxin' on my porch. I noticed his pickup hadn't moved in several days," said Hill.
Thomas, having read that celery takes more calories to digest than it contains, decided to go on a "celery diet." Celery diets have become mainstream, as part of the "negative calorie diet" revolution. Thomas made a daily pilgrimage to the local Walmart for fresh celery.
Stacy Fears, who works in the produce section of Wal Mart, saw Thomas just about every day. "He'd come in around 6pm and buy 10 to 13 stalks of celery. He was always very pleasant and it did look like he was losing weight," stated Fears.
The official report from the coroner's office listed the cause of death as "starvation." Further details of the report revealed that Thomas had eaten so much celery that his body used up all its energy trying to digest the celery. The report went on to state that "the energy stores were overtaxed with processing the celery. This caused a lethal negative calorie state that was unsustainable by the body, resulting in death."
Before going on any diet, especially "extreme diets" or fad diets, please consult your physician.
A lifestyle change that embraces health and fitness is a much better alternative than "dieting".
