The most serious devitalization caused by obesity is of the body itself. Sooner or later, in the health history of the obese person, the vital organs become handicapped by fatty infiltration or degeneration, or both.

The Seven Basic Classes Of Foods
Modern nutrition and dietetics are two very practical sciences. Food products are today classified into seven large basic groups. Up to 20 or 30 years ago, foods were classified into three basic classes.
Nutrition - Carbohydrates, Sugars And Starches
All natural foods consist of a certain proportion of sugars and starches. Almost every fruit contains sugar. Every vegetable contains starch or sugar.
Nutrition - Sugar
Sugar as a food is used to excess. In the United States particularly, desserts made with sugar are eaten at almost every meal of the day. In some poor countries of the world sugar is considered a luxury.
Nutrition - Fats
Everybody is familiar with fats that are used as foods. Butter, oil and other fat products can be assimilated by the human body, with good or bad effects. One of the good effects of fat is to give energy to the body in the form of heat.
Nutrition - Protein
Nearly every food used by man or animal contains some amount of protein. The percentage of protein is relatively high in those that are classed as proteid foods.
Nutrition - The Case Against Animal Meats
The animal, when it is killed, is charged with urinary, lung, and skin excretions. These retained animal wastes are poisonous to the human living body. Meat as a food is therefore objectionable.
Nutrition - Vegetables
All of the vegetables are rich in carbohydrates (sugar and starch), minerals and vitamins. Some of them contain a considerable amount of protein, some only a small percentage of protein.
Nutrition - Legumes
The legumes include all varieties of peas, beans and lentils. All of the legumes are rich in iron, vitamins, lime, protein and starch.
Nutrition - Grain Foods
Every country has one particular grain product as its own main staff of life. Wheat plays this role to a predominating degree in the United States; rye in some of the Northern European countries; rice is used by Oriental races as their main source of sustenance.
Nutrition - Dry Cereals
Dry cereals as breakfast foods are excellent for those who are very hungry in the morning. They are unnecessary, and even undesirable, for those who have no appetite for any hearty food for breakfast.
Nutrition - Fresh Raw Fruits
Fruits should also be used fresh and raw rather than cooked, canned or frozen. Most of the fresh raw fruits consist of 90 per cent or more of water.
Nutrition - Nuts, Composition And Food Value
Nuts are of extraordinary food value, as may be seen by studying their composition and nutritive values as compared with other foods of protein nature.
Nutrition - Milk And Milk Food Products
Milk is a wholesome food when it is used as the main course of one or two meals of the day. It may seem to produce unwholesome results when it is used as a beverage on top of full meals.
Vitamins And Our Daily Food
Vitamins have a long history and a very interesting one. In the medieval days, even before chemistry as a science was born, thinkers surmised that there must be something potent in food that affects health.
Nutrition - Food Minerals
Foods grown in properly prepared soils are better products than those that are not so grown. Plant foods are synthesized from the minerals in the earth, and they are resynthesized in the bodies of animals and humans.
