I was going to write up a synopsis of the scam, but it is completely summed up by the “How It Works” image below. This is the entire scientific justification offered on their website.
I just had a woman in my store telling another customer not to eat turkey or corn at Thanksgiving. Apparently, according to some nonsense called “The Ancient Diet,” your body takes 2000 years to become acclimated to a new food.
“So you can’t eat tomatoes or pumpkins,” I said.
“No, because tomatoes were grown by the South Americans and taken to Europe in ancient times.”
That was my cue to back away slowly.
Thanks for listening. i just had to share that with someone.
Dang, I’m only 38. I can’t eat anything!
I think my head might be deformed. I don’t appear to have a fuel guage like this despite my using a mirror to look at both sides of my head. My friends have also confirmed its absence. Is it possible to have one retro-fitted?
Despite the scam referenced, the basic of the comic seems possible (Of course, not by tricking the brain, but the taste buds):
