An Old Fashioned Diet

I found this old writing by a man named William Banting. He lived in the 19th century, and suffered with obesity. His article is probably one of the first records of someone losing weight in modern Western society using a low-carb approach. It's so interesting to read how he dieted and lost his weight. I found this pamphlet sweet and endearing. Old men are cute anyway, but old men from the 1800's... ADORABLE!!! Enjoy!
