Pasta - 2 calories. Pizza - one. Ice-cream - minus 6 calories. You lose weight as often as you eat. With pleasure. I'm touring the TV channels with my invention. Some adore me; others don't understand why I chose the path of eating without gaining weight instead of a cure for cancer. For I could have done it. What they don't know is that I have two months to live and I can't wait. I will take mom in my arms, will cover in kisses my grandma's hands, will play with Pawlet, the little doggy from my childhood, and will make fun of my brother. What a beautiful invention is this Heaven.
