The death of Australian cricketer Shane Warne has cast a shadow of mourning around the world. A 52-year-old suspect has died of a heart attack, but now, just days after his untimely death, reports indicate that he has been on an ‘extreme’ liquid diet for 14 days, which could be one of the triggers.

Shane Warne’s liquid food

The cricket icon was reportedly trying to lose weight and recently tweeted, “Operation Shed has started (10 days later) and July’s goal is to get back to this shape a few years ago! Let’s go.”

In an interview, Warne’s manager James Erskine revealed, “He went on this ridiculous kind of diet and he just finished one, where he basically ate fluids for 14 days and he did it three or four times.”

“It simply came to our notice then.

“It was either white buns stuffed with butter and lasagna, or he would eat black and green juice.

“He obviously smoked for most of his life [but]I don’t know, I think it was a huge heart attack. I think that’s what happened. ”

Warne’s son added that his father was on a regular “30-day fasting tea diet.”

According to reports, Warne was described as “buzzing with excitement” and was said to have eaten veggie toast just a few days before his death, after finishing his extreme diet.

Risk of liquid food

While there is no evidence that Warne’s diet was the cause of his untimely death, health experts have warned against such extreme diets, which cricketers follow.

In some cases, low-calorie foods can stress and affect the heart, according to Professor Gary Jennings, chief medical adviser at the Heart Foundation.

“Mostly, these risks are on top of an underlying heart disease, they don’t come out of the blue. I suspect they can create heart problems on their own,” Professor Jennings told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“Basically, if your metabolism, your fluids, salts and other electrolytes are completely disrupted, if you have a minor heart attack, you are more likely to have something serious, including a rhythm disorder.”

Ideally, liquid foods should provide you with basic nutrition. However, experts believe that this is highly unlikely. It is believed that a low calorie diet does not have the right balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals, so it should always be taken under the direction of a doctor.

Pregnant women, people with diabetes, those who are taking insulin and those who are suffering from chronic illness are advised to stay away from liquid foods.
