I’m Averyl. I blog over at Simple Living New England about my life in Maine along with traditional recipes and posts about how I maintain my weight loss through The Retro Diet™. This blog, VintageDiets.com, is a virtual showcase of vintage diet booklets, meal plans, articles and more from my personal collection. Are these relics fat shaming, silly, scientifically sound or simply representative of an earlier era? Weigh in with your comments! For a more academic yet personal look at the 1950s diet please check out American Women Didn’t Get Fat in the 1950s.
