Q. Can I just drink 600 calories of wine instead of eating broccoli?
A. I wouldn’t recommend it.
Q. On the days where you don’t fast, can you eat anything you like?
A. I wouldn’t recommend that either. My recommendation is to eat normally. Don’t pig out, don’t bury your face in the ice cream. but if you occasionally go out for a burger that’s fine. I think the message is don’t feel guilty.
Q. I’m intrigued, but terrified to try it.
A. Let me assure you it’s not that bad. Stay off the wine and peppermint stick ice cream on your fast days, and you’ll be fine.
