There is a good deal of effort expended by many semi-educated individuals to discredit the knowledge of calories, saying that it is a foolish food science, a fallacy, a fetish, and so forth.

We spend thousands of dollars a year on weight loss books and remedies, and here in this little book published in 1918 we have the plain and simple truth--
"For harken, food and only food (sometimes plus alcohol) makes fat. Not water--not air--verlily nothing but food makes fat!"
