Anyone Interested in Trying This?
Dr. Val had this interesting bit about the relationship of taste to eating. Surprise! If you can't taste, apparently you lose interest in food and lose weight.
I immediately thought of this post at OnThePharm about the nastiness of metronidazole. (By the way, the medical term for taste disturbance is "dysgeusia.")
Do you think that a low dose of metronidazole -- just enough to disturb taste sensation without inducing the full, ice-cream-provoking syndrome OTP discusses -- might produce weight loss via essentially the same mechanism?
Hmm...I might just give that a try.
