However, having been on diets myself, though none so silly as that sort, (I'm surprised she and her friend could keep it up so long), I know the pressure that girls, women and often young men feel to keep their weight down. Had Sarah been any older, I don't think she's have been able to keep it up long enough to lose over a stone without ending up passing out, which could have happened anywhere, even as she crossed the road.
The fact that she's got the good sense to talk about it now, thus warning today's youngsters, speaks highly for her as a person.
I DO remember her face! 😁👍

A WATER FAST? That's got to be the most dangerous diet ever and stupidity itself.
