YOU (South Africa) - - YOU LEISURE -

A woman is over­weight so her doc­tor puts her on a diet.

“I want you to eat reg­u­larly for two days, then skip a day, and re­peat the pro­ce­dure for two weeks,” the doc­tor tells her. “The next time I see you you’ll have lost at least 5kg.”

When the woman re­turns she’s lost nearly 20kg.

“Wow, that’s amaz­ing!” the doc­tor says. “So you fol­lowed my in­struc­tions?”

“Yes,” the woman says. “I’ll tell you though, I thought I was go­ing to drop dead that third day.” “From hunger, you mean?” “No, from skip­ping.”
