Mail Order Monday - Lose Weight Now!

We've got a triple shot of weight loss products from the 50's to start off your week.

Weight Loss Chewing Gum (1953)
What's funny about this is I saw a chewing gum at the checkout yesterday that's supposed to help with weight loss by increasing your metabolism and suppressing your appetite. Don't remember what it's called though.

Spot Reducer Weight Reducer (1952)
This one is a little...odd. The caption near the woman's picture says you can use it with or without electricity. Um...it has a plug. What do you do with it if it's not plugged in?
The bottom left corner says it's good for helping you sleep with its gentle massage. Maybe it's just me, but it sounds a little pervy . At least you can return it within 10 days if not fully satisfied!

Meltabs (1953)
This one if my favorite just because of the eye catching headline. This is some kind of miracle wafer (not drug) that can curb your hunger. According to the ad "One Meltab wafer has the hunger satisfying capacity of 1 lb. boiled potatoes, 5 slices of white bread or 4 eggs and it's only 5 calories!"
