Doctors ordered woman to stop eating fruit and vegetables

Doctors ordered dieter Jane Crook to stop eating fruit and veggies — as they were making her fat. Jane, 39, weighed 378 pounds, and kept piling on pounds despite a healthy diet — even when she only ate cabbage soup. Then medics realized she had polycystic ovarian syndrome — which means her body cannot process natural sugars. They told her to cut down on the fruit and veggies and also fitted a gastric band so that Jane, of Clutton, Somerset, could lose enough weight to start fertility treatment for a longed-for baby. She lost 140 pounds, and she and fiancé Andrew Hay, 43, are now expecting son Charlie in July.
