REDUCING WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 30 September 1914
~~ reducing wheat." There are thousands of people tt'lioso I Uvea would be. happier if they would reduce their weight. Two cardinal rules must bo laid down in connec tion with this "question of fat reduc tion. (1) The reduction must not be too rapid,, or weakness will result. When you seo an advertisement an nouncing a- rapid reduotion of llcsli, avoid the stuff as you would tho plague. It is dangerous. It pro bably contains some acid which pre vents tho digestion of food; it may accomplish what it claims and reduce the fat, but tho end of the treatment finds the patient thin and with a ruined digostion. (2) Tho reductiou of tho quantity of food taken is for more important than changing ' the dietary. For instance a man may bo told that potatoes are fattening, but that ho may tako lean meat. So, in his daily diettary, he loaves off half a [toaiid of potatoes and eats an extra three-quarters of a pound of" lean meat-. Result—ho puts on a quarter of a pound of flesh and declares the t...
