This is why the word DIET makes me cringe

This awesome and/or horrible website was introduced to me today: diet recipes with pictures, circa 1974. Oh my word! Be still my gag reflex. 

Check out the website, because the accompanying comments are priceless.

But wait, there's more! A whole book of this nastiness. On the bright side, my low calorie menu seems delicious in comparison.

The Amazing Mackerel Pudding Plan: Classic Diet Recipe Cards from the 1970s


  1. Eating was just flatout more fun back in the day, huh?

  2. Just blog hopping and came upon yours - this is histerical! I just opened for business but your welcome to swing by for a laugh;)

  3. It's like the Awkward Family Photos version of a Betty Crocker cook book.

  4. I was browsing blogger and came across your site :)
    I never understand people who can eat that stuff lol. Why do diets (or healthier lifestyles) have to be so complicated, bland (in taste), and restrictive? Everything in moderation with daily exercise, that's what my mom always said and I stand by that! lol Great post.
