There's this stuff in the "Ethnic" food aisle of the grocery store I go to, calling itself the dieter's tea. The box is green and has this image of a ballerina. Being, uh, big boned, if you will, I thought, "Heck: I can totally drink tea for weight loss. This is the get-thin-quick scheme I've been looking for!"
Then, I got the tea home. And then I read the warning.
"May cause diarrhea."
Now, I'm not a ballerina (for one thing, see my comment about being "big boned") -- nor do I have any real aspirations to be one. But I have to believe that, with all the jumping, running, twisting, and dancing going on that the last thing you'd want to worry about as a ballerina is diarrhea. I know that I sure don't want to have to contend with it.
Anyway, I kept the box of tea, mostly as a reminder to always read the label.
