Hubby reminded me of the appointment that we were both required to attend before they would release me from hospital (granted it was several decades ago). During it, the nutritionist actually suggested that if I needed to "drop a few pounds", I could eat gluten for a week. Many of her clients used that "trick" to lose weight. And I should consider myself "lucky" to have such an easy way to lose weight.
Maybe that should be in a "Horror Stories" type category.
What..... the...... whatt....... wow. Wow. Definitely a horror story.
