Like many others before them, an elderly couple started on a weight loss journey, and it went well until they made a rather startling discovery.

The many dangers of overeating, obesity and many weight-related problems predominate the media. It greatly influenced a lot of people, but even so, it was hard to find people that stay true to diet plans to kickstart a healthy life.

A married couple, who belonged to the middle class, made the seemingly revolutionary decision to eat healthily. The couple, therefore, went on a diet plan that already had recipes slated for each meal of the day. All they needed to do was strictly adhere to it, and they'd be fine, or so they thought.

They followed the instructions extremely closely, dividing the finished recipe in half for their separate portions. Being so devoted to the diet made the pair feel incredibly beautiful about themselves. They thought that the diet was a genius plan because they never felt better, nor did they ever feel hungry.

The meals were quite filling so they didn't even have to worry about sticking to their hard decision. As time went by, however, the couple started to see telltale signs of weight gain. On closer observation, they came to the startling conclusion that they were putting on weight and not losing it!

They wondered where they got things wrong and gradually narrowed it down to the diet plan itself. So, they quickly decided to inspect the recipes once again and even more carefully this time.

To their horror, they found that they had had things wrong all this time! Right there in front of them and in teeny-weeny print were the words, "Serves 6!"
