Cin Straw's' notes for this recipe:
This is a diet we used to go on back in the 1960's....I got it back out in the 80's and went on it again, then again somewhere in the 90's, I went on it again.

I'm thinking of trying it again. I lost weight everytime I've ever gone on it, anywhere from 5 to 9 pounds.

You can only stay on it for 2-days at a time (peroid, remember that)...then go off it for a few days (or a week) and then go on it another 2-days.

If I'm not mistaken (and it was a long time ago, I now have ''AllTimers'') anyway, I think it was written back in 1967 by a nurse at a hospital.

yikes no wonder its only for 2 days ~ that is hard for more than that

But for two days I could do it, wondering if you manage to keep it off. I am on South Beach just started today !

I kept it off for a long time. Then would get 'crazy' and over eat.
Putting it back on was my fault. But when I behaved myself I keep it off.
I am going to do it again...I am a diabetic and that is why I can't go on a strict diet like this for long. But, I feel going on it every now an then helps flush my body out with all the water (I don't drink enough water).
