Diet and Health

Lulu Hunt Peters (1873–1930) was an American doctor and author who wrote a featured newspaper column entitled Diet and Health, which she followed up with a best-selling book, Diet & Health: With Key to the Calories. She was the first person to widely popularize the concept of counting calories as a method of weight loss.[1][2] It was also the first weight-loss book to become a bestseller.[3]

Peters was born in Milford, Maine and attended the Maine State Normal School in Castine, Maine before moving to California.[4]
