Filed under: Diet and Weight LossDieting seems to be a phenomenon that's popped up in the last few decades and quickly gained momentum into the new millennium. Afterall, could you imaging people in medieval times, when food was scarce, turning down a potato because they were trying to cut back on their carbs?
But according to Diet Blog and our friend, Crabby McSlacker, dieting happened 300 years ago too. Low-carb diets and exercise were recommended for achieving the ideal figure back then, and not much has changed except for the ideal figure size -- then, curves were favoured over the stick-thin body shape that dominates fashion magazines of today. Actually, I wonder if we will revert back to that way of thinking -- what do you think?
