Found a number of fun videos of Jack LaLanne on YouTube a couple weeks ago. I took the chance to make a screen shot of his 10 Point Plan for health and fitness
First point, not surprisingly, was to exercise; second, equally as wisely, was nutrition. He gave some points on how to eat that were quite advanced for the 50s. He suggested a breakfast of whole grains and protein, a lunch of a large salad with lots of veggies on it, and a supper of lean protein (fish, or chicken) steamed veggies and another salad Who talked about eating like that in the 50s??
His Sample Meal Plan was not what I remember eating growing up. But I swear this man was WAY AHEAD OF HIS TIME. Protein and fruit for breakfast, Lunch: raw veggie salad and a little protein. Dinner: Another salad, 2+ undercooked veggies, some protein, and for dessert some fresh fruit.
Go follow the links to some of his other videos. It’s amazing to see what a visionary he was.
The rest of the points are all great for personal confidence and fitting into the world But again in the 50s? Even the 60s, these were fairly revolutionary ideas. Positive thinking? Care for others?
