February 2, 1852
Mons Desrenaudes "during the year 1852, he followed my system of treatment for two months, and obtained most satisfactory results" reported Dancel in his book on using the all meat diet to cure obesity.
Obesity, or, Excessive corpulence : the various causes and the rational means of cure
Mons. Desrenaudes, living in the Rue du Faubourg St. Honoré, became very corpulent in a comparatively short time. This was a source of great inconvenience to him, from the fact, that being much devoted to the pleasures of the turf, his increased weight unfitted him for the saddle. During the year 1852, he followed my system of treatment for two months, and obtained most satisfactory results, and, as in every other case, without necessitating the slightest interference with his daily avocations.
