HOW TO GET THIN. A PATIENT LOSES OVER FIFTY POUNDS IN SIX MONTHS. Savill gives anaccoullt of his treatment of obesity that presents some features of special interest. A man. five feet ten inches in height, and weighing 284 pounds, was admitted to the Paddingtan Infirmary to be treated for an ulcer. This patient, 68 years of age, was' unable to walk, chiefly by rear son of his bulk. He was put upon a. diet of one pound of cooked fish and one pound of lean cooked meat a day, and a pint of hot water sipped at intervals every two hours. The fish and the meat were dis- tributed in meals according to the taste of the patient, but no bread, vegetables, milk, or any other article of food was allowed. The patient (say the "Lancet") was a person of intelligence, and did everything towards the success of his treatment, managing to drink five or six pints of hot water during the day. Weight decreased steadily. On ad- mission, September 21, it was 284 pounds; on October 2, it was 274 pounds; on Novem- ber 18, it was 256 pounds, and on December 4, 246 pounds. At Christmas there was some latitude given in diet, and the result was a prompt addition to his weight of seven pounds, but by Jerouary 15 weight was reduced to 239 pounds. After four months' treatment the diet was modified by the addition of two small slices of bread and butter a.t breakfast and supper, and milk and suzar in his tea night and morning. On February 7 he returned to ordinary meat diet, such as other patients had, with the exception of potatoes. He then weighed 234 pounds. Weight increased slightly for a time after resuming ordinary diet: but on March 21, when the patient left, he weighed 230k pounds, having lost over fifty pounds in six months. The ulcer healed within four weeks of his admission;, and Bain and stiffness soon disappeared, permit- ting as much walking as the space in ihe ward would allow. Weight remains the same (2304 pounds), the man being now on ordinary diet, but drinking no beer. His health is excellent.
