Mr. Lee was terribly overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet.
"I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this
procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost 5 pounds."
When Mr. Lee returned, he had lost nearly 20 pounds. "Why, that's amazing!"
the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?"
Mr. Lee nodded. "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead
by the end of that 3rd day."
"From hunger, you mean?"
"No, from skipping!"
