NEVER FELT BETTER
London Doctor's Fast In Order To "Fit His Clothes" LOST 30LB IN 28 DAYS LONDON, July 29. A doctor who was unable to wear his pre-war clothes, and was short of coupons, fasted for 28 days to lose 301b.
The doctor writes of his experience in the British Medical Journal. His diet was: No food, copious non-alcoholic fluids (some sweetened), no alcohol, an alkali mixture three times daily, and an adequate daily dosage of tablets containing vitamins A, 81, 82, C and D. The doctor comments: "I maintained full and busy working days, including office work, long car drives, also plane trips, tennis, and long walks, feeling always extremely fit, and with no headaches or lassitude. In fact, I have never felt better in my life.
"The mental strain on some occasions admittedly was considerable, but not my eyes bright, my skin clear, and my brain functioning normally, but now my clothes fit very comfortably."
