A lady is overweight, so her doctor puts her on a diet.
The doc advised the lady, "I want you to stop eating regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat the procedure for two weeks. The next time I see you, you’ll have lost at least five pounds."
When the lady returns, she's lost nearly 20 pounds.
"Why, that’s amazing!" the doctor says. "Did you follow my instructions?"
The lady nods. "I'll tell you, though, I thought I was going to drop dead that third day."
"From hunger, you mean?” asked the doctor.
"No, from skipping," replied the lady.
