Are there any nutritionists out there who can answer a real question for me? How do you get dehydrated when you're on a liquid diet? That seems oxymoronic to me, but naturally I have no medical knowledge whatsoever. This is a real, actual, honest-to-god question. With only the tiniest pinch of smartaleckness because that woman makes me sick.

1 This in not in her defense....I'm so not a nutritionist, but if you drink a lot of caffine (soda and coffee) you can get pretty dehydrated. It also happens quite a bit when you live in the high altitude (happened to me twice since I've lived here BUT I wasn't on some crazy diet) When you're on a liquid diet who knows. She's probably just faking it for more negative attention.....hahaha! I suppposed the president is the devil and is sitting on her shoulders telling her to drink coffee and soda

2 The caffeine/alcohol are diuretics which cause the body to excrete more urine, which then causes the dehydration...I'm with Angie...must have been drinking lots of soda and coffee??

3 What they said. If all you are doing is drinking water, then it is kinda hard to dehydrate. Water mixed with other substances may cause your mileage to vary. However, one particular symptom of dehydration isn't evident: she can still cry. When you dehydrate, the body starts cutting off the sources of liquid loss...tears are on of the first sources to dry up. If she's sniffling on camera, she's not dehydrated, she's just thirsty.

4 I noticed that she was *also* in the hospital for a biopsy of her uterus. Could that have been the main reason she was there, but the dehydration made for a better sound bite?

5 Email your cousin Francine. She's studying to be a nutritionist. Also, your Aunt Sue would know too. She got naseous and almost passed out at Anne's wedding. She ran around the lake with your Aunt Mary that morning and then didn't eat or drink anything until later in the afternoon. Not a good thing to do! Your Mama
