You can read lots of articles about this English man.
You can read his book on line from American Libraries.
You can find the book on American Libraries letter on corpulence.

I read that and when I did something just clicked way more than any Taubes or anything. I think because you were sure there was no media hype helping anything along. It has really cemented why low carb is the way to go. It really is a goid read.

WOW! I love this! Googled him and read so much interesting info. Would love to get my hands on the actual book. Searching the library resources! Love history and always interested in finding out the how, when, where and why of things .

And I'm 30 pounds lighter because of low carbing!

THANK YOU Vita Oldie for sharing your find!

FYI - was able to read this on Pinterest. Only 50 pages and so worth it! Fascinating that in 1863 he was battling the same issues that we are battling today and the answer to those issues is to stop the carbs!

Pinterest is like an on-line source for any and everything you could ever be intereste in. Just Google it. You need Facebook account to get a Pinterest account. It's free and you'll get addicted.
