Today’s Throwback Thursday: Fletcherism, a late 19th-Century Dietary Fad

Horace Fletcher (1849-1919) known as “The Great Masticator”

“food should be chewed about 100 times per minute before being swallowed: “Nature will castigate those who don’t masticate.” He made elaborate justifications for his claim.” (Source: Wikipedia)

Um 1900: Der amerikanische Unternehmer Horace Fletcher machte sich einen Namen als “der große Käuer”. Laut Fletcher konnte man essen, was und soviel man nur wollte, sofern man es nur lange genug um Mund wälzte. Jeder Bissen sollte mindestens 100 Mal, fettige Speisen bis zu 700 Mal gekaut und dann ausgespuckt werden.
