Mysteriously, the post about his regaining the calories did appear on Facebook, causing Tadapit to face widespread social embarrassment and ridicule – in his own words, “making me feel like Rahul Gandhi must feel everyday.”

“Most times, I don’t even work out,” Tadapit said earnestly, in an interview with this Faking News reporter. “I just post that I ran for five kilometres or lost five hundred calories to impress girls, using my smartphone. But this time, I had actually worked out as I was being chased by a rabid dog for a kilometre or so.”

“I had switched on my calorie tracker app right after I stepped on the dog’s tail,” he said explaining his modus operandi.

“I was so depressed when my workout did not appear on Facebook that I ate three burgers and drank two large glasses of Coke,” Tadapit added. “I still have no clue why I regained those calories.”
