For a period of four years, we have studied the treatment by dietary measures of patients who were underweight. The principles underlying this treatment and the clinical results have been summarized in a previous paper.6 Eighteen patients were studied on the metabolic pavilion of the Western Pennsylvania Hospital for periods varying from two to 13 weeks. On 16 subjects of this series the detailed data of the food taken in are sufficiently complete to permit analysis. The analysis of these diets with reference to the weight changes which were observed forms the subject of this present study.
