Ultimately, and we're not told how long King William FloraSpring Review stayed on his diet, he was able to mount his steed. However, his enormous belly still led to his early demise. History records that he fell forward on his horse causing his saddle horn to puncture his massive midsection which resulted in his death. In 1898, a fellow named Horace Fletcher developed a diet on which he lost 42 pounds. So he decided to tell others how he did it. All you have to do, reasoned Horace, is chew your food 100 times per minute. I suppose that back then when life was slower and simpler people had time for all that chewing.
During this same time period a diet pill was marketed that contained, so they claimed, tape worms. Yes, the Tape Worm Diet. Dr. Lulu Peters made diet plan history in 1918 with the first weight loss strategy that involved counting calories. Of course, back then the question that people were asking was, "What's a calorie?" The popular diet in the 1930s was the Hollywood Diet which was actually the original grapefruit diet. Somehow, the diet's developer, settled in on 585 calories per day for 18 days. No doubt you had to eat a whole lot of grapefruit. In addition, the diet plan also consisted of hard-boiled eggs, green vegetables, and Melba toast. Ahh, there's nothing like a delicious piece of rock hard, dry, tasteless Melba toast with grapefruit. Yum, yum.
And so it has gone through the ages. One diet after another designed to help us avoid sensible things like eating in moderation, healthy eating, and getting plenty of exercise. We have popped pills (that killed some of us), taken hormone injections, consumed diet candy and cookies, gone on diets that permitted us to consume all the fat we wanted, and drank cabbage juice.
