A Carb-Loaded Question

| Learning | December 7, 2015

(We’re in health class and our teacher is talking to us about diets and weight loss.)

Health Teacher: “Now a fad diet is a diet that promises quick weight loss while cutting out possible essential nutrients with ultimately no long term results. Has anyone here been on a fad diet?”

(The piano teacher, who had just walked past the hallway, comes in with his hand raised.)

Health Teacher: “[Piano Teacher], you’ve been on a fad diet.”

Piano Teacher: “Yeah, a few years ago. One of those low-carb diets.”

Health Teacher: “I see. And did it work?”

Piano Teacher: *looking down at his gut* “Um… no.”
