The Miracle of Milk - How to Use the Milk Diet Scientifically at Home

Front Cover
Read Books, 2008 - Health & Fitness - 220 pages
Originally published in 1924, the Milk Diet was a fad during the 1920s. It was claimed to have health benefits for a range of ailments because it flushed out the tissues, carried out diseased cells and waste, brought repair and nourishment to diseased parts, and increased the circulation and nerve action. This book is not intended to be used as a practical guide, but is an interesting and at times, amusing, read. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pierides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: Why the Milk Diet Cures - When to Use the Milk Diet - The Milk Diet Regime, How to Use it at Home - Preventing and Remedying Symptoms, Disturbances and Mishaps During the Milk Diet - How to Change From the Milk Diet - How to Keep the Health you Have Gained

About the author (2008)

Macfadden led an illustrious life. A lifelong believer in exercise and healthy eating, he was a personal trainer and physical therapist, created exercise equipment, and authored more than 100 books, most dealing with strength and vitality. He founded the Coney Island Polar Bear Club, was the first to promote body-building competitions (Charles Atlas was a winner of his "Most Perfectly Developed Man" contest), and founded the monthly magazine Physical Culture. Personal letters from readers of Physical Culture led to the creation of more Macfadden Magazines - True Romance, True Detective, and Photoplay among them - making him one of the most successful magazine publishers in history.
