Ted Talks Video: What Is Obesity?

Weight Loss Through Diet In 1951

Weight Reduction Through Diet 1951 – YouTube video from traci0dee channel

I found this video on the YouTube traci0dee channel. Don’t be put off by the date on this video. The information is similar to today’s guidelines on weight reduction: avoid in-between snacks, quality food, lose no more than 1 1/2 to 2 pounds weekly, exercise along with healthy eating, and portion control. Importantly, the people in this video appear to be a lot less stressed than we are. There are also lessons here about manners, and polite social behavior.
