The Fun of Getting Thin
How To Be Happy and Reduce the Waist Line
A 1912 look at weight loss, both humorous and practical.
As a period reviewer put it:
"The Fun of Getting Thin," or "How to reduce the waist line," is a very readable little brochure. In tone it is somewhat humorous, and yet it is sensible and aims directly to the point. It describes the conditions of a man who was excessively fat and his method of reduction, which proved a complete success, in one instance at least, that is, his own. His method is no fad. He came to the sensible conclusion that superfluous fat is caused by an excess of food and drink, and that it can be taken off by a reduction in those fat-makers. That is, "the only way to get rid of the effects of overeating and overdrinking is to stop overeating and overdrinking." This is simple enough, if one has the nerve to go through with it. In the writer's case, we are informed, he finally decided he could go to it, and he did.
By many people who are in the same condition as the writer these three chapters are worth reading. Others may appreciate and profit by them.
