The 1970s Diet

One of my new favourite blogs is Crying All the Way to the Chip Shop.

Its writer londonlee, noting how much thinner people were in the 1970s despite the awful food we ate, suggests:
maybe the next slimming fad should be "The 1970s Diet": wake up in a freezing cold flat, walk five miles to work, stand on your feet in a factory all day, carry your shopping home from the supermarket, eat a pile of spam fritters, instant mash and processed peas for tea, have a big bowl of Angel Delight, smoke twenty Rothman's, and the weight will just fall off.
