Six Character Diets to Get You to Your Ideal Weight

The Curse of the Drinking Class is here to help you shed off those unwanted pounds, literate-style.

From the piece...

The Joads' Famine
Care of: John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath

Dietary restrictions: Crops
Exercise: Route 66
Equipment: Hudson truck
Method: Dust storms and drought

This tale of famine follows the Joads as they traverse Route 66 to California from Oklahoma in search of jobs, land and dignity. Because that’s where it’s at. California. The sharecroppers' crops have been destroyed by dust storms and drought, which combined with the long trek, will trim any tubby tush. The Joads recommend unscrupulous banks and foreclosure to give your step that added determination.
