A local pen pusher at a firm in Betoota’s Old City District almost reached a significant milestone today.
The young man named Ben Shillton nearly managed to make it through the slow Monday morning period without mentioning that fact that he has recently started the Keto diet.
However, the man who made a point of letting everyone know he did a bush walk on the weekend fell agonisingly short, bringing up his new meal regime just minutes before everyone meandered off to lunch.
The ketogenic diet (or keto diet, for short) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits, depending upon who you talk to, and is extremely popular with inner-city employees who are secure enough in their day to day life to be bothered with it.
“Nah, I’m all good for lunch actually,” interjected Shillton into a conversation that broadly encompassed the rest of the office.
“I’m still on the Keto,” he said, when a simple Yes/No answer to whether he was interested in joining the group Thai trip would have sufficed.
The rest of the office then nodded and plodded off to the Thai restaurant down the road, failing to offer up any further prompts on the young mans diet, as he so desperately craved.
At the time of press, Shillton was sitting at his desk picking at his pre-packed lunch while a vicious internal argument raged on about whether he could maybe duck off for something decent to eat.
