In this groundbreaking book Dr. Peters captures the distinct flavor of her times and place: America in the early 20th Century. This is not just a diet and health book. It is a historic artifact as well. It is a glimpse of American life when cars and phones were just becoming a part of daily life, there were no televisions and the 1920s were just beginning to Roar. Men, and even women, like Dr. Peters, were going off to war in Europe. 'Diet & Health with Keys to the Calories ' is where it all started. It is the first modern day simple and basic guide to eating right and losing weight. What was sound advise in 1918 is still sound today. It may also have been the friendly, perky, yet direct way that Dr. Peters addresses the issue of weight that earned her such a large following in the 1920s. We've taken a simple book and improved it and made it more accessible. To make it easier on the eyes we've enlarged the type (12 pt.) and used a new character font (Georgia). We didn't just scan an old book and put a new cover on it. We enlarged the book size to 6"x 9". And, we've given you additional dietary ideas in a new final chapter. We've left nothing out, nor edited Dr. Peters. She speaks for her self as she did almost a century ago.
