Mother Dies From Water Consumption During Controversial Diet

December 11, 2008

UK (ChattahBox) – A British woman who was determined to lose weight died after drinking 4 liters of water within a 2 hour period as part of a controversial diet called the ‘LighterLife Plan’.

The program, which has been widely criticized by doctors and health professionals, requires you to cut down your caloric intake to 500 calories a day, and consume 4 liters of water to compensate. All of this is done within a 12-week period, causing the body to begin starving itself, and so eating off excess fat that has been stored on the body. It’s dangerous, and in this case, fatal.

According to coroners the amount of water that Jacqueline Henson , mother of 5, consumed was meant to be spread out over the course of a day. But when she began to lose significant weight she became desperate to lose more and drank the water all at once, and then continued to drink more, causing a poisonous reaction that simulates drowning. Her official cause of death was swelling to the brain.

According to the company that released LighterLife, the death was accidental, and that the instructions to drink that amount of water in small amounts throughout the day were clear.

Our program gives clear guidance that  water should be consumed regularly over the course of the day, and the coroner confirmed the events were a tragic accident,’ said a spokesperson for the company.

No charges are set to be filed.
