Jack La Lanne — from 1959

My wife, Carolyn and I were recently going through some things from her grandmother. One item is an album dated from 1959 (this is how music and other instructional items were completed in the 1950’s) with the below message on the reverse of the album cover. It just goes to show that the message of diet and fitness was effective and applicable then and it still is today! … and will be for tomorrow!

“Jack La Lanne has dedicated his life to helping others acquire the physical well-being he found for himself. His driving ambition has been to help the millions who watch him on TV to look better and feel better through scientific exercise and sensible diet.

Many of Hollywood’s most famous stars and other celebrities credit Jack with helping them to keep trim and feel more vibrant. Louella Parsons recently asked Bette Davis the secret of her renewed energy and fresh beauty. Bette answered, ‘One morning I watched a man named Jack La Lanne on TV who was teaching exercise and gymnastics. I decided to follow hi exercises every morning and soon felt like a different person.’

Opposed to fad diet, Jack developed his own Three-Point Plan designed to help those persons or normal health who were not following a proper diet or who were not getting enough exercise to keep in good physical condition. The plan is: 1) regular Exercise with 2) Scientific Instruction plus 3) An improved diet which included more hunger-appeasing Hi-Protein and essential Vitamins.”

So here’s the message, which has been constant for 55+ years: Better Health can be gained through Exercise and Improved Diet.

Go figure!
