ABC of Nutrition, the

A successful book, first published in the U.S.A. and written by Horace Fletcher. He was heavily influenced by the words of the British Prime Minister William Gladstone, who said " I have made it a rule to give every tooth of mine a chance, and when I eat, to chew every bite thirty-two times. To this rule I owe much of my success in life".

In the book, this became the basis of 'Fletcherism' - one of his soundbites being "Nature will castigate those who don't masticate".

In his case something worked - for he was only 5'6", and at the age of forty weighed 217 pounds (15 stone, 7 lbs).

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards.
