Dan : Wow, I'm really getting fat. Melissa : You don't look fat. Dan : Yes, but I am. I've gained 10 pounds in the last two months. Look at my stomach. Melissa : How much do you weigh? Dan : I think about 170 pounds. Melissa : What kind of foods do you eat? Dan : I usually have pasta for dinner. Sometimes I get take-out or fast food if I don't have enough time to cook. Melissa : I was reading a diet book the other day. It said that if you eat meat and nothing else, you'll lose weight quickly. Dan : Wow, does that work? Melissa : I don't know, but someone told me they tried it and lost 20 pounds. Dan : That sounds good, but I'm not sure how long I could do that. Melissa : I know, once you start eating vegetables and bread again you'll probably start gaining weight. Dan : Well, I think I'm going to try it anyway. Who's the author? Melissa : I can't remember. It's not that popular anymore. When I get home I'll check and give you a call.
