I think I have an eating problem: 1888

But when artificial life, with its meager exercise, its seclusion from pure air, its jading cares and conventional excesses, destroys natural appetite, its victims may justly demand that artifice shall supplement, as it has supplanted, nature. The languid appetite must be beguiled and tricked into activity by an appeal to senses other than those of hunger.
--From Good housekeeping--

Oh, the things you read in women's magazines!

I'm pretty sure you could find similar shit printed in any current men's health mag.

Not a real old-time men's mag. IYKWIMAITYD

But this is about trying to trick yourself into eating MORE food when you don't want to eat.

I don't know. They never put anything like that in the Police Gazzette. At least not in any of my copies.
