Eat and Be Healthy – Strength Magazine – July, 1921

So much has been written about what a person should eat and what a person should not eat; how much anyone should eat and the waste that there is in everyone’s daily victuals, that I was tempted to delve into what recognized authorities had to say on the subject. It may be all very well to say that we eat too much, but do we? You will remember the story of the lawyer who remarked that “one-third of what people eat keeps them alive,” and when asked about the other two-thirds replied that they “kept the doctors alive.” It is quite true that some people do eat too much, but the man who is exercising regularly must remember the other old saw about making bricks without straw. You cannot build muscle without sufficient nourishment.
