How she lost 40 kilos


An acquaintance confided that two years ago, she weighed 40 kilograms more than she does now. I wouldn’t have known. She looks good, if still a bit plump.

I didn’t ask how she did it. I knew how, watching her eat her breakfast of broth, pickled cucumbers and hard-boiled eggs with the yolks scooped out and discarded.

I could lose 40 kilos that way too, probably more quickly. But I’m not going to eat that way. Actually, if I did, I would lose even more mass, even more quickly, because I would regurgitate my pickled cucumbers and egg whites at every meal.

Hmm. Maybe I’ll try that after all.
