What is the best way to lose some weight? Have food poisoning. No kidding, that is what a visiting colleague from the US said. She was part-joking, of course, but she did find her pants slipping down lower than usual after a bout of food poisoning that sent her visiting the bathroom (hurling and purging) throughout the night and fearful of eating a full meal afterwards for days.
No need for diet pills nor exercise at the gym. She just needed a belt to keep her pants from hitting the ground. Yeah, she got one from the mall next-door to where she was staying.
