The Fletcher Method of Weight Control
One sure method of reducing weight is by practicing what is known as "Fletcherism." It was discovered in 1898 by Horace Fletcher of the U.S.A. Fletcher, at 40, considered himself an old man. He was 50 pounds overweight, contracted flu every six months and constantly complained of indigestion and a tired feeling. After a deep study, he made some important discoveries and prescribed the rules for "Fletcherism" which are as follows: 1. Chew your food to a pulp or milky liquid until it practically swallows itself. 2. Never eat until hungry. 3. Enjoy every bite or morsel, savouring the flavour until it is swallowed. 4. Do not eat when tired, angry, worried, and at meal-time refuse to think or talk about unpleasant subjects. Horace Fletcher followed these rules for five months. As a result he lost more than 60 pounds and felt better than he had for 20 years. A weight reducing programme built on Fletcherism works wonders and is worth a trial.
