Horace Fletcher (1849–1919) was an American health food enthusiast of the Victorian era who earned the nickname "The Great Masticator," He argued that food should be chewed before being swallowed to ensure a more completely into a liquid perfect digestion. He coined the oft repeated Maxim: "Nature will castigate those who don't masticate." THE FIVE PRINCIPLES OF FLETCHERISM: FIRST: Wait for a true, earned appetite. SECOND: Select from the food available that which appeals most to appetite, and in the order called for by appetite. THIRD: Get all the good taste there is in food out of it in the mouth, and swallow only when it practically "swallows itself." FOURTH: Enjoy the good taste for all it is worth, and do not allow any depressing or diverting thought to intrude upon the ceremony. FIFTH: Wait; take and enjoy as much as possible what appetite approves ; Nature will do the rest. Key Sign to look for:
"The moment appetite begins to slack up a bit, the moment saliva does not flow so freely as at first, the moment there is any degree of satisfaction of the appetite, stop eating!"
