Millions of Americans will promise to lose a few pounds in 2012. But when did Americans start worrying about their waistlines? Join historic gastronomist Sarah Lohman, author of the blog Four Pounds Flour, for a look at how Americans traditionally tried to shed a few extra pounds. From William Banting’s “Letter on Corpulence” to “Fletcherizing” with John Harvey Kellogg, explore and taste some of the best (and worst) historic diet trends in America.

Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
