A few things to say:
1) Paleo was alive and well in 1864: this guy eliminates bread, butter, sugar, beer, milk and potatoes.
2) I would much rather be called fat than corpulent. Seriously, the synonyms listed for corpulent make me want to crawl into the fetal position in shame.
3) Vegetables apparently had no place on the 1864 table.
4) Fat people were ostracized in 1864, too.
And for you dirty corpulent folks, how about some obesity soap? Nothing gets rid of fat like soap!
I love history.
