In our last episode, the evil Dr. Lacto had captured our hero,
Dave , who said:
Given: 1 portion of food X has Y points.
Given: Points are expressed in whole numbers.
Therefore, 1/2 portion of X has (roughly) Y/2 points.
Therefore, 1/4 portion of X has (roughly) Y/4 points.
As the fractional portion of X becomes sufficiently small, the number of
points will approach 0.
At that point, you can eat infinitely many portions of that size and still
consume zero points.
And yet, my weight is not decreasing. :(
Last time I checked, a serving of carrots was assigned a value of 1 point,
not for its fat/fiber/calorie content, but because people were eating
carrots to the point of hypercarotenemia.
If you really do hold all the cards, I'm afraid they're playing backgammon.
