A Washington State pet store owner has vowed to eat pet food for a month to promote healthy eating.

Dorothy Hunter of Paws Natural Pet Emporium in Richland, Wash., said she got the idea when she was hungry at work, but didn't have time to go grab a snack.

"I grabbed a bag of treats off the counter and I was like, wow, you know, these read better than normal people treats. So I started eating the treats," she told NBC.

Now she's eating everything from dog treats to wet cat food. The only human food she's consuming is coffee.

Hunter is documenting many of her meals in YouTube videos.

"I'm eating pet food for a month to promote ingredients awareness and healthy eating for people as well as their pets," she said in one video before eating some grain-free raw dog food.

She admitted she lost some weight when she first started, but said she feels "really good," so far.
