Meet the Author


Lulu Hunt Peters (1873-1930) was an American doctor and dietician who popularized dietary regimes based on reducing calorie intake.  Her zeal for weight reduction, no doubt related to her own struggles, led her to criticize excessive weight in moral was well as physical terms.  Her attitudes reached a wide audience through her syndicated newspaper columns.
