About Stout Men – Strength Magazine – January, 1917

Some few men are naturally stout; they have heavy round figures from early boyhood to old age. The weight is evenly distributed over the whole frame, although it is generally most noticeable at the waistline. A man like this has but little chance to reduce himself by exercise; it only makes him hungry, and as everything he eats seems to be turned into fat, he actually gets heavier as a result of exercising.
