Still solid hardcover. ; Fletcherism involved chewing one's food to turn it into a liquid to increase nutrition and decrease consumption. The Five Principles of Fletcherism are: First: Wait for a true, earned appetite. Second: Select from the food available that which most appeals to appetite, and in the order called for by appetite. Third: Get all the good taste there is in food out of it in the mouth, and swallow only when it practically "swallows itself." Fourth: Enjoy the good taste for all it is worth, and do not allow any depressing or diverting thought to intrude upon the ceremony. Fifth: Wait; take and enjoy as much as possible what appetite approves; Nature will do the rest. First Edition, First Printing of this quite popular holistic eating regimen from the early twentieth-century. ; A B C Life Series; xvi, 224 pages.
