I have a copy of the Weight Watchers Quick Start Plus Cookbook from 1986.

The da ily exchanges for a women are as follows: Week l 3 fruits, at least 2 veggies, 2 milk, 2 bread, 3 fat, and 6 proteins. Week 2 add 1 protein Weeks 3 and 4 add 1 bread and 2 proteins You should always eat breakfast. Don;'t eat more than 4 eggs in a week. Eat a minimum of 3 fish meals. eat 3 to 4 oz. liver in Weeks 12 and 3. Week 4, e at 4 t0 6 oz. liver. Breakfast: 1 egg or 1 ounce hard cheese or 2 ounces fish or 1/4 cup cottage or pot cheese 1 slice bread, either enriched or whole wheat (This was back in the day when "en riched" bread was considered the nutritional equal of whole grain. No rolls, bag els, buscuits muffins, crackers, cereals, or special breads were allowed.) Luncheon: 4 ounces fish or lean meat or poultry, or 2/3 cup cottage cheese or po t cheese or 4 ounces farmer cheese or 2 ounces hard cheese or 2 eggs. All you want of unlimited vegetables 1 slice bread Dinner: 6 ounces lean meat or fish or poultry 1 portion limited vegetables All you want of unlimited vegetables Must be taken at some time during the day: A total of three fruits, one of them an orange or grapefruit 2 cups skim milk or buttermilk or 1 cup skimmed evaporated milk May be taken at any time of day: Any unlimited foods, which included many vegeta bles, calorie free beverages, and bouillon. It is interesting to note that the permitted fruits were limited to 1 apple 1/2 cantaloupe 1/2 grapefruit 2" wedge of honeydew 1 orange 1/4 medium-sized pineapple Specifically excluded were bananas, cherries, watermelon, grapes, and all dried fruits. Bananas are among the carbiest and highest-calorie fruits, and of course dried fruits might as well be candy. Watermelon is also fairly high carb. But I wonder about the exclusion of cherries and grapes; I wonder if it had to do wit h the fact that it's easy to just keep popping them in your mouth. Interesting, too, is the list of limited vegetables: Artichokes bamboo shoots beets brussels sprouts carrots eggplant green beans (mature) (I assume this meant with fully-developed beans inside) okra onions
