E-Book: american women didn't get fat in the 1950s

Averyl's heavily researched and controversial book revealed pre-BMI medical metrics for healthy weight and eating which were far more stringent and based upon medical studies instead of comparing people to a norm. Also included were vintage US government food recommendations and an examination of the psychological climate and marketing practices to women in the 50s. She offered suggestions for integrating “outdated” healthy practices and attitudes into a daily diet to combat and replace the toxic practices and processed foods prevalent today often mistaken for “progress.” For almost three months her book was in the top 100 diet books on Amazon Kindle and at one point was a top diet book on Amazon.
