A doctor’s successful fight against two of mankind’s most common afflictions—overweight, with its six attendant dangerous diseases, and allergy. Dr. Donaldson went to medical school in the late 1800s and practiced medicine in New York until the mid-1900s.
First published in 1961, Strong Medicine by Dr. Blake F. Donaldson is a diet book supporting a meat-only diet. Dr. Donaldson had very good success treating overweight people with a diet where up to 24oz. of fatty meat was prescribed daily. His general recommendation was 6 oz of lean meat combined with 2 oz of visible fat three times per day from ruminant animals only, such as lamb or beef. His philosophy comes from the idea: “During the millions of years that our ancestors lived by hunting, every weakling who could not maintain perfect health on fresh fat meat and water was bred out.”
A fascinating read for anyone interested in diet and health!
