In a restricted diet, patients who transgress are thereby more
hurt (than in any other?); for every such transgression, whatever
it may be, is followed by greater consequences than in a diet somewhat
more generous. On this account, a very slender, regulated, and restricted
diet is dangerous to persons in health, because they bear transgressions
of it more difficultly. For this reason, a slender and restricted
diet is generally more dangerous than one a little more liberal.
