'Letter on Corpulence' is arguably the most important Diet Book ever written. Long before the Atkins Diet and the rush of low-carb diets that followed came a book written - not by Doctors or Nutritionists - but by a humble Victorian Undertaker: William Banting. Banting's book would pave the way for many of the diets that followed. In this new edition of Banting's 1864 Classic, diet author Will Meadows puts the importance of Banting's work into context and discusses which weight loss methods remain relevant today.

About William Banting

William Banting (1796-1878) was a Victorian Undertaker. Well known in Victorian society, Banting was the undertaker to the Royal Household and arranged the funerals of Prince Albert and the Duke of Wellington. Banting however suffered from obesity and by his sixties his health was so bad he had to seek medical advice. The outcome of this advice was a diet system that led to remarkable weight loss. Banting recorded the secret of his diet system in 'Letter on Corpulence'. It became an instant best-seller. Will Meadows has spent the best part of the last two decades working in the Diet and Nutrition Industries in the US, UK and Europe. The result of Meadows' experience can be found in 'The Final Countdown Diet' book.
