I think I recall eating some of those recipies as a youngster. My Mom dragged me to WW meetings (yup, I was a fat kid, too) and made me bring nasty stuff for lunches. I remember lots of tuna on lettuce leafs, stuffed tomatos--yuck! To this day I will NOT touch anything having to do with Jell-O.
They used to make me take some nasty pills as well--have no idea what it was? I was probably 10 y/o at the time, so it would have been right around '74.
