Say Wha?!

I was just channel surfing and paused on TLC, during an episode of "My 600lb Life".  The patient was in to the visit the doctor for a pre-surgery approval appointment, and has had five months to lose some weight before being approved.  She hadn't lost any weight and had to explain herself to the doctor.  She claimed she was doing everything she was told, "I'm eating low carb, like you said.  I even started making wheat bread myself so I could stick with it".  You could almost hear the doctor giving himself an imaginary head slap.  Her support person also looked dumbfounded and they both told her that wheat bread is still bread and is not low carb.  She truly looked surprised.

Oh, people.  Really?
