If you want to lose weight, go as long as you can without eating. Most patients can live in perfect health for a week or two without any food, but from a practical standpoint, this is not going to happen. Most patients can go a day or two without eating. Make sure you drink at least a gallon (128 ounces) of water a day, and take 2-4 bouillon cubes in water to replace the salt you are losing. When you absolutely, positively have to eat – the best diet is my Cat Food Diet. Eat half a pound of your dead animal of your choice, twice a day. Or eat a pound of dead animal, once a day. Or eat four ounces of dead animal, four times a day. It doesn’t matter. That’s it. See my Cat Food Diet online for more particulars.
