Ask the Doctor – Strength Magazine – December, 1927

If you are of normal weight or overweight your treatment would consist of taking twisting and bending exercises such as are found in the pages of this magazine from time to time; exercises calculated to work the muscles of the stomach, sides and small of the back. You should also change your diet to include plenty of fresh and stewed fruits, whole wheat bread, greens and vegetables, and plenty of water, the idea being to eat bulky foods, known as roughage. Yeast, too, might be of value.
