The Jane Austen diet

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:08 pm on 22 May 2019

The next time you're faced with a choice about what to have for dinner, ask yourself a simple question, what would Jane Austen do?  

Writer Bryan Kozlowski wanted to get healthy when he hit his 30's, so he decided to follow the diet and exercise advice found between the pages of Austen's novels for 2 years. He says it works. His new book is called, The Jane Austen Diet. 

He also shares a recipe from his research:  Jane Austen's Bath Buns
