Eat and Stay Slim
Better Homes and Gardens
1979

This is one of those Better Homes and Gardens cookbook/how to manuals for dieting. The calories of the sample menu come in a 3 handy menus: 1000, 1200, and or you can go crazy with 1500 calorie per day. The recipes are okay. Note there is even a molded salad for your own dieting pleasure. There were lots of diet books around at the time and this is probably one of the more sane examples of the time. Side note:  I am guessing that portion size is not reflected in the cover, or there is some trick photography going on. Those tacos look huge.

I think this one can be retired.

  1. I actually owned and followed this book’s advice back then (for a little while) and it worked! Not that you can tell it by my weight now….

  2. Imagine a time when 15lbs overweight was considered too m uch and time to start doing something about it.
