You're Fat Because You Eat Too Much
I LOVE this image. It's from a 1950's Better Homes & Gardens Diet book and I found it on the blog American Women Didn't Get Fat in the Fifties.
As the poster pointed out, it's rare to see this kind of directness today. For one thing, the word "fat" has taken on the same connotations as "retarded." Fat is now kind of a "dirty" word, and using terms like "overweight," are more acceptable.
But the truth is, we are fat, overweight, etc. BECAUSE we eat too much (and don't get enough exercise).
