9 a.m. Breakfast: unsweetened tea or coffee, “2 or 3 Gluten biscuits,” and 6 ounces of lean grilled meat

12:30 p.m. Lunch: 4 ounces of lean meat, 4 ounces of cooked green vegetables without butter, 3 ounces of baked or stewed unsweetened fruit, 1 gluten biscuit, and 1 of the recommended “sugarless” wines

Afternoon cup of tea, coffee, or beef tea without milk or sugar advised

7-8 p.m., Dinner: clear soup, 4 ounces of fish, 5 ounces of meat, 8 ounces of vegetables, and 4 ounces of stewed fruit. Plain salad and 2 gluten biscuits, if desired
