Reducing Ver*u» Age
A MIDDLE-AGED over
weight woman, a member
of a bridge club, secretly began
to reduce her food intake in the
worthy effort to get rid of her
surplus weight and acquire
once more the figure of which
she formerly had been so proud.
She ate n ■•little" of everything
that was served at the club, avoid
ing sugar.
Or. Barton
It was about
eight weeks before
any of the other
members noticed
that her face and
body had lost some
fat; that she looked
unusually well also.
By the end of
another six weeks
the change was so
great that other
fat members asked
her secret. Her
only reply was that she dldn t eat
as much ns formerly, that she was
doing a bit of her own housework,
nnd that she was spending about
one hour less of the twenty-four In
bed. By the end of one year her
weight was exactly the same as
when her age was thirty. She was
very happy nnd very healthy be
cause her face nnd figure were more
youthful. Other women of the club,
seeing these brilliant results, began
reducing their food and obtained re
sults more or less satisfactory In
proportion to their perseverance.
Why Retultt Are Different
One member decided to make ft
renl Job of reducing her food and
liquids and on learning the extent
to which her successful friend had
cut down on foods, decreased her
daily diet by Just twice the amount
She did some extra work about the
house, did considerable walking, les
sened the number of hours In bed,
nnd tried to do as little sitting as
possible.
Sure enough, the weight began to
come off In both fnce and body, but
whereas her friend's face had be
come more youthful with bright
eyes, she found that her face was
wrinkled and worn, that her eyes
were sunken, her body, though thin
ner, had no buoyancy. Instead 6t
looking ten years younger, she ap
peared to be ten years older than
before she started reducing.
The reason for the success of one
nnd the failure of the other, Is two
fold.
1. The second woman attempted
to reduce In too short a time. Not
only were the skin, underlying tis
sues, nnd the various organs of the
body unnble to accommodate them
selves so quickly In a normal way
to this change, but the severe meth
od of reducing was an nctunl shock
to the system and shock shows on
the face and body of every one,
whether the shock Is due to phys
ical or mental causes.
2. There Is a definite Ideal weight
that each body should carry. The
amount of weight depends upon the
height nnd width, the length of the
legs, family characteristics nnd oth
er factors. Thus an Individual with
a short body and long legs should
not weigh ns much ns one with a
long body nnd short legs.
This second woman then had not
only removed the fat too rnpldly but
had reduced beyond the Ideal weight
for her particular body. Besides,
the amount of meat nnd eggs eaten
was greatly below the body's re
quirements to maintain the body’s
muscular framework.
Matter of Individual Study
Another woman who had become
quite plump at puberty (as she
emerged from girlhood Into woman
hood) attempted to reduce weight
In the commonsense manner of the
first member and found that the fat
came off to a certain point and then
her weight remained the same. By
reducing the food Intake further
she found that a little weight was
removed but she felt so weak she
had to Increase her food Intake.
Consulting her physician and giv
ing him the history of her efforts,
he suggested the use of small doses
of thyroid extract for a certain
period as her overweight was due
more to lack of gland juice than to
overeating.
The whole point about reducing
for men and women Is that each one
should study himself or herself, the
build, the build of the parent most
closely resembled, the weight when
aged thirty, and then very gradual
ly, very slowly cut down on the
foods known to put fat on the body
—bread, sugar, potatoes, butter,
cream, and all liquids. Sleeping a
little less and exercising a little
more brings results in half the
time.

How Reducing Drug Work*
There has been so much discus
sion among medical men about the
results obtained by the use of
dinltrophenol, that a •‘final’’ report
from Drs. M. L. TnInter. A. B. Stock
ton and W. C. Cutting. San Francis
co, is of great Interest.
Of 170 patients they studied only
five lost no weight, while reduction *
was obtained In the remaining 1(55.
The average total loss of weight per
patient was 17 pounds, amounting
to about a loss of 1% pounds weekly.
