Radical solutions

A woman was terribly overweight, so she visited her doctor. He put her on a diet.

"I want you to eat regularly for two days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for two weeks," the doctor instructed. "The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds."

The woman followed the doctor's instructions. When she returned two weeks later, the doctor put her on the scale and was amazed she'd lost nearly 20 pounds!

"That's amazing!" the doctor said. "Did this happen from just following my instructions?"

"Yes," the woman replied, and then added, "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead on the third day."

"From hunger?" the doctor asked.

"No," the woman answered. "From all that skipping!"
