The Computer Diet
Antonetti
1973

Now it is time for some high tech dieting! Our author has compiled a bunch of data, along with some fancy “programming” to help you in your quest for weight loss. The book is essentially pages and pages of weight loss tables calculating the days needed at a certain calorie level for desired number of pound to lose. Bottom line: this diet is calorie counting.

Why this diet book is different? It uses math and words like “thermodynamics” and is written by an engineer. I guess a computer diet sounds better than counting calories.

Don’t kill your husband!

How Not to Kill Your Husband
Hutchin
1962

Ladies, your husband is a busy man and can’t be responsible to make good health decisions. Your inattention to his health could LITERALLY KILL HIM! Fortunately, this book will save you. This is a book for wives on how to properly monitor and care for your husband’s health through diet, exercise and stress reduction.

Written in the voice of the oh-so-knowledgeable doctor talking about those silly men that we ladies must take care of since they are just a bunch of giant babies. These delicate men need their wives to reduce the stress, cook healthy meals and evidently prevent him from doing stupid things that might hurt him. I guess it is time to add “babysit a grown man” to your list of chores. I am sure all the men out there will love the wife hounding them on everything they do. Naturally, if he chooses to ignore our awesome help and he dies, it will be our fault.

Where is the book for husbands on how not to be a burden and a selfish ingrate for your wife?

I think every guy wants a cadre of superstars surrounding him. This particular guy was a supporting actor on the old Mission Impossible series back in the day.  He has all the answers to your beauty and health needs. Also, he will dress in some pretty groovy outfits and go to the gym with you.

I can’t wait to try some “sex-a-tonic” exercises. It’s your mission now. As usual, ALB will disavow any knowledge of your actions.
