banting

An ad hoc term coined after William Banting, a Briton who in 1861, at the age of 65, was placed on a diet of lean meat, toast and vegetables by his surgeon; within 2 years he had lost 50 pounds. He then wrote the popular Letter on Corpulence, which advocated consumption of vegetables and loss of weight, at a time when vegetables were not a dietary staple, meat was the centrepiece of a proper meal and obesity was not considered a disease, but rather a mark of social status.
