My Starvation Diet

Slate columnist Emily Yoffe takes an interesting look at the calorie restriction diet by trying it herself.

I decided to try CRON for two months, but it’s past that now and I’m still avoiding seconds and skipping my late-night snack. CRON was supposed to do much for me that it hasn’t.

My very poor sleep is not better; my low energy is not higher; my foggy mind is not clearer. I still have no desire to hang around long enough for my now 11-year-old daughter to collect Social Security. But I’m grateful to Dr. Walford for letting me experience something I thought I never would again: loose-fitting pants.
