I recently downloaded some podcasts that had radio broadcasts from the 1930’s and 1940’s. Old comedians, such as Jack Benny and George Burns. People my grandparents used to speak about.
One of the things that caught my attention is that they speak about low fat items and dieting. Usually, it is the women or are worried about this. I assumed the obsession over weight loss and dieting began in the 1960’s or 1970’s. It shocked me that even two to three generations ago, there was a worry.
