Great advice… one problem with it, though – it doesn’t work. Attempt to follow it produces a short-lived result, followed by a dreaded plateau and a bounce – and that bounce often takes a dieter all the way back and then some.

Rest assured, I am far from subjecting myself to any kind of suffering. I am a strong believer in a motto “No pain? Good!”
So, how can fasting be enjoyable? In quite a few ways.
