Careful consideration of the foregoing data, taken in their entirety, must lead the unbiassed thinker to admit the possibilities of physiological economy in nutrition. That there is no real need for a daily diet containing 118 grams of proteid food seems clearly indicated. The members of the soldier detachment lived without discomfort for a period of five months for by the ordinary standard dietaries, and this without increasing the amount of non-nitrogenous food. Body-weight, nitrogen equilibrium, physical strength and vigor, ability to respond to sensory stimulation, the composition and general condition of the blood, all remained unimpaired under a daily diet involving the metabolism of only 7 to 8 grams of nitrogen per day and with a fuel value of less than 2800 calories per day. Further, the practice of such economy led to marked improvement in the working of the neuro-muscular machinery, sufficiently noticeable to attract the attention of the men themselves, apart from the records of the dynamometer, etc. Indeed, it has been the universal feeling among all the subjects of experiment that they were less conscious of fatigue than formerly, or that they could do more work without the feeling of fatigue that is usually so conspicuous more
