"Overweight is the most important nutritional problem in America today. If you are overweight, there is no other single thing you can do that will pay better dividends in appearance, health, and longevity than to reduce properly. Of the more than 168,000,000 living Americans, it has been estimated that some 60,000,000 will die of the diseases of arteriosclerosis - hardening of the arteries. In this connection the only advice the medical profession can offer you with confidence at the present time is to reduce and stay reduced."
