"In 1863, Banting wrote a booklet called Letter on Corpulence, Addressed to the Public which contained the particular plan for the diet he followed. It was written in the form of an open letter in the form of a personal testimonial. Banting accounted all of his unsuccessful fasts, diets, spa and exercise regimes in his past, then described the dietary change which finally had worked for him, following the advice of a physician. His own diet was four meals per day, consisting of meat, greens, fruits, and dry wine. The emphasis was on avoiding sugar, saccharine matter, starch, beer, milk and butter. Banting’s pamphlet was popular for years to come, and would be used as a model for modern diets"

His meals were now quite different, consisting of lean meats or fish, biscuits, dry toast, vegetables, fruits, tea without milk or sugar, and copious quantities of "good claret, sherry, or Madeira." He was also allowed a nightcap of one or two glasses of claret or, if preferred, a tumbler of gin. Breakfast consisted of 4 or 5 ounces of lean meat, tea, and 1 ounce of dry toast, which Banting recommended be softened in "a tablespoon of spirit." "
