First Diet Book (1560)
Luigi Comaro was committed to the practices of a minimal diet, which is seen in his book La Vita Sobra, translated to English as The Sober Life. In his book, Comaro preaches that human life may be best lived when cutting out alcoholic beverages, eating as little humanly possible, and eliminating rich foods from the diet.
First Tummy Tuck (1890)
The first tummy tuck was completed in 1890 by Dr. Demars and Dr. Marx in France. There are varying degrees of the tummy tuck, some procedures more extensive than others, but usually a small incision is made to excavate excess and unwanted fat from the belly.
