A woman was terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet." I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, andrepeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'llhave lost at least 5 pounds." When the woman returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly20 pounds." Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow myinstructions?" The woman nodded. "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going todrop dead that third day." "From hunger, you mean?" "No, from skipping."
