"Rounded Slimness" Decree of Fashion - Changes in Style Demand Return to Normal Diet
The flat, skinny figure is no longer in vogue. Slimness is to be desired, but in the words of an international authority "rounded slimness" should be the goal of every woman.
In attaining "rounded slimness," diet plays a very important part. Foods formerly avoided are recommended in every day's menu. These include meat, eggs, milk and plenty of vegetables and fruit. Cereals with milk or cream and sprinkled with sugar are also important in the diet for "rounded slimness."
Particular attention should be paid to desserts. Puddings, custards, fruit pies and ice cream not only have food value but complete the meal in a most satisfying way. Candy is also an ideal dessert. And for variation try cream cheese and crackers with jelly or jam.
To avoid monotony in the diet, many foods can be improved by a little sugar. This is especially true of vegetables which often are tasteless because they do not reach the home immediately after they are picked. For example--spinach, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage and peas are much improved in flavor by adding a dash of sugar. A pinch of salt to a dash of sugar is a good rule to follow.
Aside from the enjoyment that sugar brings, it plays two important roles. First, it furnishes energy; and second, it helps consume excess fat which might otherwise be added to the body. Good food promotes health and beauty. The Sugar Institue.
