Fabulous Lady Diet Food


This is one of those rare instances where I can learn nothing on the internet about an old-time product. I suspect it was simply a forerunner of such drinks as Metrecal. If anyone can discover the secret ingredients of this drink, or even more press about it, they will be a master sleuth!

1,050 calories per day is a little rougher than just a "serious dieter".

If it was the Rockefeller diet in a can (and it sounds like it was), it could be this:

6 tablespoons dextrose
10 oz. evaporated milk
1 oz. corn oil
8 oz. water

Some years ago a friend who was trying to lose some extra pounds at the time would not take my advice to engage in more exercise and cut out the fast food from his diet. Like most Americans he chose the route of paying a not small price for some weird substance that you see on late night infomercials.

After a few days of eating the pills and not getting the results that were claimed by the celebrity spokesmodel, he asked what I thought about it and how much weight he should expect to lose.

I replied, "How much does a twenty dollar bill weigh?"

Stuff for weight control and better sex always sells, for a lot. To be honest I always liked my lady friends to have some nice rounded edges to hold on to. They also seemed more frisky.

No one wants to ride on an ironing board.
