20. A Rational System Of Weight Control
Most of the people who are concerned about their weight need not necessarily fast, nor should they use any of the legion of "reducing diets" or "systems" that are offered from all sides.
For most people, the Hygienic diet itself is a rational system of weight control. It provides complete and optimal nutrition, with the least expenditure or waste of bodily energy—and without the surfeit or redundancy that gluts the organism and produces obesity and disease.
When a nutritionally-superior diet is maintained, the weight of the body tends to normalize. There is built-in weight control in a food program which includes a large percentage of fresh, whole, uncooked vegetables and fruits; Such a vitamin- and mineral-rich, high-residue, fibrous diet is not nearly as conducive to overeating as the conventional diets.
It may be worthy of note that, of the various programs which have been offered to the public, those which have been either harmless or least harmful, and have "enjoyed" even a modicum of success are those which include fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and exercise in the regimen, and thus begin to approach the Hygienic system.
