Over-eating is one of the most wonderful practices among those who think that
they can alford it. In fact, authorities say that nearly all rvho can get as much
as
they desire, over-eat to their disadvantage. This class of people could save a
great more food than they can save by missing one meal per week
and at the
same time they could improve their health

heavy meal at night, the so called "dinner", is the fashion with many and
often it is taken shortly before retiring" It is unnecessary and could be forgone,
not only once a week but daily without loss of strength. From three to five
hours are needed to digest foorl."ldrhiie sleeping, this 'food not being required
to
$ve eneirgy for work, is in many cases converted into excess fat, givinl rise to
over-weight. The evening meal should be light, taken three or four hours
before
retiring. This prevents over-eating, conserves energy and reduces the cost

food.
