With the popularity of my previous blog post on Soviet propaganda posters, I've decided to follow up with an even larger collection of American propaganda posters from roughly the same period, covering the two world wars as well as the period of the Great Depression in-between. The emergence of a new kind of aesthetic in Russian and Soviet art after the revolution of 1917 largely resulted from the state having experienced a revolution, the arts became revolutionary too and changed dramatically.

This post will explain exactly how Briana, a mother of three and reader of this blog, lost 100 pounds.
If you’re meeting me for the first time today, you’d never guess that a little over 1 year ago, I was 100 pounds heavier and the furthest thing from being proud in a bikini.
I had a husband, two kids, a house in the suburbs with a white picket fence, and a great dane. Fat, depressed, and frustrated, I ended up surfing the internet one day for some new nutrition and training inspiration, when I stumbled across Tim’s blog and the post he wrote on How to Lose 20 lbs of Fat in 30 Days… Without Doing Any Exercise.
Along the way, Tim wrote and released The 4-Hour Body, and my story was featured on national television and throughout numerous editorials, spreads, and fitness publications — the biggest of which was an appearance with Tim on the Dr. Needless to say, I exploded over nine months, and by the time I actually gave birth to my 8 lb. So many of us are miserable over the current condition of our bodies, we get motivated and inspired by reading stories such as mine, but that’s not enough.
Before I began, I committed to document the entire process via a weekly pictorial where I would stand raw, real, and exposed in front of a camera wearing nothing but the same tiny black bikini. Beginning the day after I gave birth, I followed every slow-carb principle that is outlined — except for the cheat day.
Just with the slow-carb diet ALONE and ZERO exercise (due to some postpartum recovery issues between week 1 and week 8), I lost 36 POUNDS.
And 12 months after giving birth, I hit my goal and lost 100 pounds (23 pounds of which were pre-pregnancy), and completely transformed my body. Standing in front of the bright lights of a professional photographer week-after-week (often times without seeing much change), especially when you’re a personal trainer who is 100 pounds over weight, is humiliating, humbling, and painful. I always wanted to guarantee that people could achieve rapid fat loss, and now I have the data to prove it.
Last Fall, 3,500 people joined a four-week 4-Hour Body challenge and measured their progress on Lift (a goal tracking and support community that I invested in). Talk to other group members! When you set goals alongside other people, it keeps you accountable and leads to better results.

Also, and not a criticism, but as a personal trainer do you feel it is perhaps not the best message, long term, to send to the public that they do not need to exercise in order to lose weight and be healthy? From all the diet information out there, from SCD to Paleo, (mostly) everyone agrees that processed foods are the culprit for weight gain and illness. Thermogenics, as well as other stuff, but I’m being lazy so will open my copy of 4HB and get back to you later.
They say fruit is processed in your body like a carb, so if weight loss is your goal, it’s best to cut it out or stick to one piece a day. It’s basically a big ball of sugar that is produced in order to entice animals to eat it and therefore spread the seeds of the plant far and wide. Also, there is historical evidence that hunter-gatherers who survived on wild game and meat primarily were healthier and fitter than their successors who ate more carbs, but that doesn’t mean that carbs are bad. Remember that if you follow SCD to the letter, you can eat an entire fruit orchard on your designated cheat day every week. While the percentages work the same with a daily cheat meal or snack, in terms of moderation, the point of Tim’s diet is ketosis for fat loss.
As a physician that deals with a lot of weight problems with patients and myself, i think I can help answer this question. When you’re obese however you have to understand that fruit is essentially a large ball of carbohydrates. Years ago I did a protein and fruit diet (melon group one day, citrus group one day, and berries on one day) … one type of fruit group per day, no mixing. Easiest diet ever since I didn’t have to think about what to eat or cook or mix together.
In the United States, no such revolution occurred, which is quite evident in US World War I propaganda, which usually employs a visual language similar to earlier works. I was a young mom in my early 20’s, trying to balance everything and be everything to everyone BUT neglecting myself. After it, I felt compelled to pursue a career as a certified personal trainer and nutrition specialist. As a newly single-mom, I set out to “4-Hour Workweek” my life, started my own multi-faceted health and wellness company, and spent the last 5 years helping to transform the bodies and lives of hundreds of women around the world in ways they never thought were possible. By “went for it” I mean – if my weight gain had been an accurate barometer of my son’s birth weight, I should have given birth to a kindergartner! I indulged my cravings, and I packed on the pounds by way of ice-cream, Mexican food, lasagna, and a total break from the adapted SCD nutrition principles I worked so hard to establish in my own life and subsequently teach others. When I felt discouraged, or was having a internal struggle over something I shouldn’t eat, I would look at the photos of where indulging got me — FAT.
Turkey wrap “roll-ups” with a little hummus and a sliver of bell pepper or cucumber inside is my fave! I am a 31-year old mother of three, I’ve lost more than 100 pounds on the Slow-Carb Diet, and I work every day to be a success story.

I was feeling some baby blues since my daughters birth this past January but its time I shake it off. I understand why, based on how the diet works, but there are so many nutrients (macro, micro, phytochemicals) that are lost and need to be sourced through pills. As a Paleo guy myself, it’s great to see a Mom incorporate the SCD rules and get healthy. Cold showering is one way to do this, but there are other ways, like putting an ice pack on your upper back and neck for 20 minutes while watching TV or reading. As long as you get them from natural sources (that is, fruit) and you primarily plan the meal around lean protein, you should be good to go. In a weight appropriate low body fat individual , fruit is a healthy appropriate part of the diet.
You can minimize these negative effects by sticking to fruits with a low fructose content: Avocados, tomatoes and berries. By the time of the Great Depression of the 1930s things really started to change, and American posters took on a new direction.I include some posters here that weren't state sponsored, and thus might not be propaganda in a strict sense, but I consider them all noteworthy and interesting, so I hope you can forgive me for this. Description in a non-judgemental fashion and allowing the viewer to make their own mind up would serve you better sir.
I made my family the priority, which was great for them, but I lost myself somewhere along the way.
I read it, I applied it day-in and day-out, and within 6 months I had not only lost the 73 POUNDS I had gained after having my first two kids, but I had completely transformed my body!
I wanted to empower, educate, and inspire other women to transform their bodies and regain a renewed sense of self — just as I had.
Something that will motivate us to walk away from the bread basket, or in my case — back away from the sour cream twice-baked potato!

Good nutrition is the best medicine, it’s very interesting, and not knowing is incredibly dangerous. While it is natural sugar and arguably the best way to have sugar because of the fiber and nutrients that come along, its still sugar. So incorporating a cheat day, among other reasons, falls perfectly in line with SCD and Pareto’s law. There are many important vitamins and nutritional additives that fruit can supply as well as a lot of fiber. Robert Atkins was one of the first people to clearly understand this problem in overweight people. Despite numerous failed attempts to lose weight and get in shape, the scale just kept creeping up.
The only way to survive the next long winter was to gain a lot of weight in the spring and the summer sort of like a bear.
You can supplement these essential nutrients and vitamins and avoid the sugar all together, not nearly as delicious tho. World War I was to a great extent the end result of the growth of European power throughout the world.
Please do not put your URL in the comment text and please use your PERSONAL name or initials and not your business name, as the latter comes off like spam. Fruits are not candy bars or soda, which are almost a 100% sugar with little or no nutrient value. The costs and destruction of the war also meant the beginning of the end for European dominance in world affairs, and the United States emerged as the new key player on the world stage. Nor all yogurt is healthy, and soft swirl is almost all full of aspertame…ie cancer food. I believe 80% pure healthy choices and 20% indulgence is a good way to stay healthy and still enjoy your favorite deserts. Americans in general didn't want to participate in a war that was seen as a European affair. We’ve evolved to eat carbs which would cause insulin secretion much more than other food classes.
After all once you are practicing a healthy lifestyle and diet your cravings and tolerance for junk food will decrease.
When President Woodrow Wilson finally drew the country into the war, much of the propaganda consequently produced was aimed at increasing American sympathies for allied European countries.Poster #1 here shows without doubt the most famous American piece of propaganda, and indeed one of the country's most famous fictive characters. The Uncle Sam character was already decades old by the time the US entered into World War I. The inspiration was taken from poster #2, a British poster printed in 1914, showing Secretary of State for War Lord Horatio Kitchener. Kitchener died two years later when the cruiser he was traveling with struck a sea mine and sank off the Orkney islands.3. Along with Uncle Sam, the United States have traditionally been embodied by two female characters, the Lady Liberty (aka. The other character, which to a large extend has fallen out of use in the last century, is the woman seen here, Columbia.
Derived from the name of Christopher Columbus, the name Columbia was for a long time supported as an alternate name for the United States, both prior to its independence, and afterwards. The sinking by German U-boats of several US civilian vessels is seen as one of the factors that finally made the United States enter the war. This grim poster juxtaposes a sinking ship with a German U-boat and the personification of German aggression in the war, the German Kaiser (Emperor) Wilhelm II. This poster shows a quality that is to be found in most American war propaganda poster from both the first and second world wars, the fact that it encourages some sort of action to be taken by average American citizens to help in the war effort.

In this case, it is conservation of wheat, to be consumed instead by soldiers on the front.5.
The positive contributions each American could make extended to just about every area of consumption. This, one of the cuter posters in this post, is apparently aimed at children, but is extended by its humour to apply to anyone who consumes sugar.6. The US navy did eventually start accepting women for enlisted service during the war, though they were primarily allocated administrative or other non-combatant positions.7. Very similar to poster #4, this one shows an unmistakably German soldier leading a captured girl away, with Belgium burning in the background.
When selecting these posters, there were some I chose to leave out because they are just too grim, and I'd say this is a borderline case, with all its gruesome implications and harsh aesthetics.New Deal After years of extreme stock speculations on the back of massive industrial and agricultural overproduction, the United States plunged into the Great Depression, starting on "Black Tuesday", October 29th, 1929.
Roosevelt launched his "New Deal" program, aimed at helping the country reform and recover from the depression. While the importance of the New Deal in the recovery that occurred is still being debated, there is no doubt that it did aid in the creation of a lot of fresh visual arts.
Thousands of artists and photographers (such as the famous Dorothea Lange) were employed by the various agencies set up as part of the New Deal, resulting amongst other things in some outstanding posters. One peculiar quality in many of these posters is their similarity to contemporary Soviet posters.
While the two states perceived themselves as being worlds apart in their ideological outlook, many of their main goals were basically the same, increased production, efficiency and welfare for their citizens. The stylized look of the man in poster #8 and its theme is quite obviously similar to Soviet posters of the age. Big, sharp edged men battering away on a piece of metal are a well known element found in Soviet posters. Likewise, the safety advice found in poster #9 is of a kind that could also be found in a great number of contemporary Soviet posters.
While the highly stylized look of the worker in poster #10 is striking, what I found particularly interesting in this poster is the lettering used.
It bears an uncanny resemblance to the lettering used in German propaganda posters printed in the years leading up to, and during World War II, in other words, around the time of the printing of this poster (1936). Seeing as poster #11 doesn't seem to contain any obvious message whatsoever, it doesn't seem to be deserving of a propaganda label. Some of the finest posters I've looked at during the creation of this post, these are true beauties. Despite being printed in a troubled time known (at least to posterity) as the Great Depression, these posters feature a bright, happy mood, showing the various natural wonders of the United States. They all exhibit a rather refined use of colour and type, while the first three all feature tiny human figures among grand natural views.
The first thought that sprung to mind when I saw this poster was "a tree-hugging hippie panda!". By their look and apparently calm demeanor, panda bears are perceived as some of the most innocent and peaceful mammals alive.
Despite being almost to cute to bear ("ha ha"), it really is an excellent poster, characterised by gentle curves and a restrained colour scheme.17. This poster, printed between 1936 and 1937, resembles the posters seen during World War II rather than others found during the New Deal era. While It may seem an obvious idea, I like how the designer has made the typesize gradually decrease in the style of a Snellen chart.18.
Change the text and put a toothbrush in the man's hand instead, and you'd have yourself an excellent dental advert.World War II As with World War I, the US population was far from unanimous in their will to get involved in what was seen as a mainly European problem. And just like during World War I, the USA confined their war effort to actively supplying the allies with hardware and various consumables for the first years of the war.
With the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on the 7th of December, 1941, the United States entered fully into the war both in the European and Pacific theaters. With a war on two fronts against two strong adversaries, the country had to mobilize all its production capacity for the war effort, and a great number of posters were produced to enlighten the population on all the little things they could do to help out.19.
The grim look, the destruction and the focus on vengeance gives this a striking resemblance with the Soviet Poster "No escape from the people’s revenge!", featured in my previous blog post about Soviet propaganda.
Apart from this particular poster, the anger seen in this poster seems to be lacking in most other US wartime posters, focusing instead on the positive contributions people can make for the war effort.20.
This poster quotes  Abraham Lincoln's "Divided house" speech of 1858 (albeit slightly modified), warning against the dangers of the country being divided over the issue of slavery and predicting that the United States would either fully embrace slavery or fully abolish it. The poster takes this message a step beyond, referring not only to the United States, but the world as a whole, predicting that in the long run, there can only be one or the other, the two cannot co-exist.
It's obvious which side the poster wants Americans to take if they wish their own liberties to be enjoyed by the rest of the world, and indeed by themselves in the long run.21.
One of the most famous American posters from the war, it shows the iconic "Rosie the Riveter" as an encouragement to the millions of American women who were needed to fill the traditionally male jobs now becoming vacant with the men at war. The two world wars, especially the second, were important in showing the feasibility of women holding traditionally male jobs.
While after both wars, the women employed during the war were "sent back to the kitchen", in the long term, their crucial contribution to wartime production helped open up a vast amount of new career opportunities.
