Toothbrush? Finger with booger? OMG!

The following note is from a doc who specializes in weight loss, trying to figure out why the patient is still heavy. I personally would have worded this differently, as there are some details about my patients' lives that I just don't want to know.

If he's into binging and purging, does he have to write down each thing twice?

Hey man, that stuff has calories too and SHOULD BE COUNTED. In high school, it was rumored that it was the same amount of calories as an entire pizza!

Not exactly a ringing endorsement of weight loss science.

I think in 100 years, history is not going to look kindly on medical science in relation to weight control.

how descriptive should he be about his... well... love life? i mean come on! (and dont tell me you all were not thinking the same thing!)

But wait...what if it's broken cookies? Because broken cookies contain no calories. Nor does food taken off another persons plate, and any food consumed while preparing a meal is also calorieless. Really. Seriously. It's a scientifically proven fact. :)

Yeah! And ANYTHING you eat, no matter how many calories, is canceled out by the anti-calories in Diet Coke, if you have them together.
