Question 1970s diet workshop diet

Does anyone out there have a copy of the old Diet Workshop diet from the 70s? This was a low carb, high protein diet that worked well for me back in the day. By the time I was done having kids and went back, the diet, like all the rest, had flipped to high carb, low protein and never worked. I'm doing fairly well with atkins, but I liked the structure of having the diet spelled out for me, for instance, servings per day, serving size etc. I lost 60 lbs in 8 months and kept it off til my first pregnancy 6 years later. I would love to find a copy of the original diet from way back when. Internet searches have turned up nothing. : (

I'm just wondering if you would like to give Atkins another chance, by the book. The diet IS very structured and has everything spelled out. In my paperback copy, chapter 11, on page 120 he starts with the 12 rules of induction, followed by the allowable foods list. Over 8 pages he spells out EVERYTHING..it's pretty structured, including serving sizes and servings per day. Starting on page 202, he gives sample menus for a full week. Those sample menus, even with some minor tweeking to take into account a person's own grocery budget would give plenty of guidance.

It's something you might want to consider while you are waiting for a link to the 1970's diet to show up. And in the event that the link doesn't, you'll be well on your way to a healthy low carb way of life.

Best of luck to you in your search.

Hope: Try doing a seach by the name of the diet using several search engines. Good luck. But I agree with Angela, Atkins if quite structured. If not enough, then set up some tighter parameters for yourself.

So many things in your life contribute to changes in your metabolism and the way your body holds onto weight. Something that worked in the 1970's and before having children might not work for you now. That was quite a few years ago and just age alone effects weight gain.

Best of luck to you and congratulations on your success so far!

If you are referring to the Diet Workshop that was founded in 1965 by Lois L. Lindauer, you can check out http://www.dietworkshop.com - but I would guess the program has changed since it came out in 1965.

yes, the diet was much different in the 1970's, it was much more like atkins than any other diet i've found. it is now a low fat/high carb diet much like weight watchers.

i've been staying with atkins, just looking for that old formula that seemed to work so well for me back then. atkins is very easy for me to follow, because i'm never hungry like on other diets, but like the other ones its working slowly. i guess i really just need to get moving and exercise more.

thanks everyone for the advice.

Thing is, a lot of time has gone by...your metabolism may be different...your dieting history may be different...your lifestyle may be different. I hope you find the diet you are looking for, but don't be disappointed if the results are not identical to your former experience.

This is a very old thread, and the OP has not visited the forum in nearly 5 years...

Hi and welcome!
The post you responded to was from 2003.....I suspect that the person is long gone from the site.

Default Diet Watcher Workshop of 1970

The Diet Watcher Workshop came to my small town in Calif in 1970 and here is the diet:
Breakfast was either 1 egg, 1 slice of toast or 3/4 c. dry non-sugar cereal and 1 oz. of chicken, fish or cheese.
Lunch was either 2 eggs or 2 oz. cheese or 4 oz. fish or chicken and 1 slice of bread.
Dinner was 6 oz. chicken or fish and 4 oz. vegetables (cooked).
Adults were allowed 2 cups of nonfat milk a day and 3 pieces of fruit. Coffee, tea and diet sodas were allowed freely. Fruit like bananas and watermelon were only allowed once per week. Vegetables like potatoes were only allowed once per week, same with pasta (and these were used as a bread substitute). Teenagers and children were allowed 1 quart of nonfat milk per day and 5 fruits.
Some foods were allowed freely--certain non-root vegetables like salads, diet jello, and a thing called Free Soup which was made with tomato juice and cabbage and bean sprouts.
Fats were pretty much restricted.
