I thought this was neat

Avoid today’s popular errors in diet

The disease and suffering that prevail everywhere are mainly due to popular errors in diet. Many ailments are cured if the following instruction is put into daily practice.

1. A major portion of the diet should consist of fruits and vegetables prepared in a natural, tasty way.
2. Vary the diet from meal to meal, but do not eat too many varieties at any on meal. Keep the recipes and the meals simple.
3. Use the whole (unrefined) grains such as whole wheat bread and brown rice. Discard the use of refined grains such as white flour and white rice.
4. Eliminate rich, concentrated foods containing too much sugar, fats and oils (especially lard), salt, and protein (meat and other animal products).
5. Eat at the same time each day. The stomach functions best on a regular schedule. Allow at least 5 hours from the end of one meal to the beginning of the next meal.
6. Do not eat between meals. Eating between meals delays stomach emptying, which causes the partially digested food remaining in the stomach to spoil or ferment.
7. Breakfast should be the largest meal of the day. Supper, if eaten, should be the smallest meal. Supper should be eaten at least 2 to 3 hours before bedtime.
8. Eat all you need to maintain health and enjoy your food, but do not overeat. Too much food dulls the mind, causes fatigue, increases disease, and shortens life.
9. Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly. This will increase the enjoyment and the nutritional benefits of the food. Mealtime should be pleasant and unhurried.
10. Drink enough water daily to keep the urine pale. Drink liquids in between mealtimes. Avoid drinking during meals, just before a meal, or soon after a meal.
11. Skip 1 to 4 meals periodically. Fasting is an aid in educating the appetite and a rehearsal for self-control. Fasting is an excellent remedy for many illnesses.

Interesting! I'd have to disagree with these:

snip ~ Allow at least 5 hours from the end of one meal to the beginning of the next meal. Do not eat between meals. Eating between meals delays stomach emptying, which causes the partially digested food remaining in the stomach to spoil or ferment.


It works best for me to listen to my body instead of watching the clock.

Good food for thought, though!
