CHICAGO — We had a little bit of a diet #TBT on Wednesday’s WGN Morning News as we took a look at a suggestion for weight loss in a short time frame.

Welcome to the “Wine & Egg Diet” that was touted by a major publication decades ago.

Is that something that could hold up today?

The hosts discussed the “Wine & Egg Diet” during the “6@6” on Wednesday’s show in what was a bit of a food-themed edition of the segment.

We also talked about “Dolly Eggs,” “Cowboy Candy,” modern houseboats, a picture that people see differently, and more during the “6@6.”

You can watch the entire segment from the October 4 show in the video above.
