If you think it”s difficult to lose weight in this day and age, you”re right. However, it used to be even harder. Humans bodies were the same, but weight loss techniques a few decades ago were just bizarre.
Dropping twenty pounds is no easy task, but at least now we have some idea what we”re doing. It seems like back in the 1950s, people made wild predictions about what would help you slim down. While they might not have had science figured out back then, they sure made up for it with sexism. Take a look at the hell that was trying to lose weight as a woman in the 1950s.
That”s good news! But wait, what”s the catch?

Ooh! You get to wear fun shoes, too?
Wait, what”s going on?

Don”t do it!
What kind of twisted science experiment is this?
Take a trip down memory lane by watching a weight loss video from the 1950s below. It”s almost as good as going to the gym today, given the amount of cringing you”ll do.
Yikes. That 5 AM spin class doesn”t seem half as bad now compared to all of these torture devices.
