    public domain old health books.

    I just started reading Good Calories Bad Calories by Gary Taubes.

    I was wondering if there are any good old, free public domain books on nutrition, cookbooks and old diabetic diets? They also seem to know about the dangers of carbs and staches back than. I figure these books are out of print though.

    I also have a pdf of "Not by bread alone" but can't find the web source... I did find this however, which looks like the right format to print and fold into a book... http://www.zerocarbage.com/library/FOTL.pdf

    I think a lot of my links/pdfs came from the "Zeroing in on Health" site, I vaguely recall looking into zero-carb and going through their reading lists?

    Thanks for that! I am reading the eat fat one right now.

    Is there public domain cookbooks too? Old time recipes are fun to cook.

    Here is a link for Weston Prices book ' Nutrition and Physical Degeneration'. http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks02/0200251h.html

    As far as I know it is the whole book, it has been in my favorites for forever but have not read it yet.

    Look up Eat and Grow Thin: The Mahdah Diet by Vance Thompson. You can find it in Google Books. It's full of primal recipes, and it's in the public domain! And now with that wonderful book machine, you can head on over to your local library and book shop and print out a library-quality copy for yourself.

    I love those cookbooks that are put together by church groups and community organizations. They're full of favorite recipes and don't pretend to be anything other than what they are. The really old ones are best as they have far less processed ingredients than the newer ones do.

    Take a look here for digitized versions of many old recipe collections: http://digital.lib.msu.edu/projects/...ml/browse.html

    This is one of my favorites:
    1909 Washington Equal Suffrage Association Cookbook: http://digital.lib.msu.edu/projects/..._jennings.html

    Since you're reading GCBC, here's Banting's Letter on Corpulence: http://www.lowcarb.ca/corpulence/

    I can't wait to read Banting's piece. I'm trying to finish GCBC by the end of next week.

    Those zeroing in on health links, at his forum, the recommded book list isn't in the book section. He only has 3 books in the exercise section.

    Its going to take quite awhile to get through all of those books Sharon!
