According to him, came from a farmer a day on the table: two loaves of bread and about 230 grams of meat or fish. For this, a generous portion of vegetables, beans or beets. For flushing it down the many carbohydrates there were three pints of thin beer. Although come together whopping 4000 calories, this diet was better for the heart, so Henderson. Because many calories were burned quickly in a tough 12-hour day. And the people ate little sugar - compared with today "sweet life" with biscuits, cookies and candy.
