“I can eat as much sauce covered salad as I want, sure it’s syn free.”
“It’s the gluten that’s making you fat you know.”

The question you need to ask Karen…. What nutrition or dietician qualifications have you got? The answer will be zero. Karen gets her facts from Facebook and the odd golden nugget from her hairdresser.
Don’t believe everything you hear or read.
If common sense can’t be applied, ask someone who has the appropriate qualifications, such as a nutrition degree. Don’t let someone drag you down because they starve themselves for 2 days, fall off the wagon and can’t bear to see you doing well.
