2-day diet; and you can only stay on it for 2 days at a time

Straws Kitchen


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.
