4. Horace Fletcher – He made elaborate justifications for his claim. Fletcher and his followers recited and followed his instructions religiously, even claiming that liquids, Fletcher argued that his mastication method will increase the amount of strength a person could have while actually decreasing the amount of food that he consumed. Fletcher promised that Fletcherizing, as it known, would turn a pitiable glutton into an intelligent epicurean. Fletcher also advised against eating before being Good and Hungry, or while angry or sad, Fletcher would claim that knowing exactly what was in the food one consumed was important. He stated that different foods have different waste materials, so knowing what type of one was going to have in one’s body was valuable knowledge. He promoted his theories for decades on lecture circuits, and became a millionaire, upton Sinclair, Henry James and John D. Rockefeller were among those who gave his ideas a try. Henry James and Mark Twain were visitors to his palazzo in Venice and he lived in the Palazzo Saibante with his wife, Grace Fletcher, an amateur painter, who studied in Paris in the 1870s and was influenced by the Impressionists, and her daughter, Ivy. Ivy, later to become a journalist at the Daily Express in the 1930s, was often a pig for Horaces experiments. Although many people believed Fletcher’s laboratory reports, the more important eye-opener to doctors and it was here that he participated, at the age of fifty-eight, in vigorous tests of strength and endurance versus the college athletes. The tests included, “deep-knee bending”, holding out arms horizontally for a length of time, Fletcher claimed to lift “three hundred pounds dead weight three hundred and fifty times with his right calf”. The tests claim that Fletcher outperformed these Yale athletes in all events, Fletcher attributed this to following his eating practices, and ultimately these tests, whether true or not, helped further endorse “Fletcherism” publicly. Fletcher saw many similarities between humans and functioning machines and he posited several analogies between machines and the human body. Just some of the comparisons that Fletcher drew included, fuel to food, steam to blood circulation, steam gauge to human pulse, along with Fletcherizing, Fletcher and his supporters advocated a low-protein diet as a means to health and well-being. Fletcher had a special interest in human excreta and he believed that the only true indication of one’s nutrition was evidenced by excreta. Fletcher advocated teaching children to examine their excreta as a means for disease prevention, if one was in good health and maintained proper nutrition then their excreta, or digestive ash, as Fletcher called it, should be entirely inoffensive. By inoffensive, Fletcher meant that there was no stench and no evidence of bacterial decomposition, Fletcher was an avid spokesman for Belgian Relief and a member of the Commission for Relief in Belgium in World War I. By 1919, when Fletcher,69, died of bronchitis, his plan was already being replaced by the next approach to dieting championed by Irving Fisher and Eugene Lyman Fisk.
