(a). Consideration of a proper reducing diet has become, in our work, of daily necessity and occurrence and of practical value.

(b). A chronically painful joint or series of joints of the spine or lower extremity often ceases to be troublesome in an individual who has been overweight and who, by means of a reducing diet, has brought his weight to normal.

(c). The amount of overweight need not be large,-occasionally the removal of ten or fifteen pounds is enough to spell the difference between comfort or pain in a given case.

(d). This method in proper cases is an adjunct to other forms of treatment used in orthopaedic surgery.
