Helping combat pilots get good rest fast became a priority. So the military brought in naval ensign Bud Winter to develop and test a scientifically designed method of "teaching" sleep. After just six weeks of practice, 96 percent of pilots could fall asleep within 120 seconds.
Many of the fad diets we follow today share similarities with fad diets followed in the 20th century.
Early 20th-century diets emphasised low-carb and no sugar. Evidence suggested a link between obesity and mortality, causing people to focus on regulating body weight.
