Dieters who look for shortcuts in this modern era have their choice of weight loss methods. You’ve got ephedra (if you don’t want to live very long), Slim-Fast (if you don’t mind drinking non-nutritious chalk/cake batter), Myoplex (if you don’t mind drinking nutritious chalk/cake batter), and the list goes on and on. Old stalwart dieting companies like Weight Watchers are happy to take your money in exchange for exercise advice, recipe suggestions, and whatever else it takes to make you think you’re not being fleeced. Maybe this doesn’t sound so cool after all. Maybe you think that the best way is to eat *REAL* food carefully and engage in exercise. And maybe, especially if you’ve tried at least one of these so-called miracle diets, you’ve wondered how people dieted years ago.

Lemme tell you — miracle dieting wasn’t any better thirty years ago. It was MUCH worse.

Take a look at these Weight Watchers recipe cards from 1974. Do you see anything appetizing there? Perhaps the Fish Balls? Can you believe that someone actually thought THIS would be a better way to lose weight than, say, eating lots of salad and going out for a jog twice a week?
