Talking Dictionary 670. The Fat Fix


670. His wife said, "I've got to lose all this fat." He said, "Honey, you call it fat; I call it 'more to love.' Yes, you have a few extra pounds, but you wear them well." Several weeks later, she came home from a follow‐up doctor's visit. She said, "My doctor said my blood sugar level is too high. He says I'm pre‐diabetic. I need to lose at least 10 percent of my weight, or I might become diabetic. Now do you agree that I'm too fat?" He said, "Let me whip up something in my lab to help you lose those pounds." A month later, he presented her with a bottle of pills. He said, "Take one pill a week. It'll neutralize your taste buds. Everything you eat will taste like cardboard. Everything you drink will taste like water." She said, "This is your solution? Go back to your lab." 2.8
