This work presents Dr. Deweys theories in a clear, concise way, giving the origin of the no-breakfast plan and the theories upon which it is based. -The Publishers' Trade List Annual, Volume 2, August, 1905

Your boarding house lady is too besotted to reform; work out your own salvation. Omit breakfast or lunch at the table, and eat a small health meal in your room; such as fruit juice or a hot drink, or fresh fruit and whole-wheat crackers, or a good flaked cereal and cream with prunes, figs or berries. Read The No-Breakfast Plan by Dr. E. H. Dewey. -The Independent, Volumes 86-87, April 3, 1916

I have since found that my greatest service at the beds of the sick is as an interpreter of symptoms rather than a vender of drugs. As my experience enlarged so did my faith in Nature; Most of the cases of disease that fall to the care of the physician are trivial, self-limited, and rapidly recover under even the most crucifying dosages; Nature really winning the victories, the physician carrying off the honors. Feed, feed the sick whether or not, say all the doctors, say all the books, to support strength or to keep life in the body, and yet Nature was absurd enough to ignore all human practice evolved from experience, and in her own way to support vital power while curing the disease. -Edward Hooker Dewey, M.
