Once, a fellow re-enactor posted a link on FB to a British show where a couple had to live on a Stuart diet for one week. They drank nothing but wine and ale, ate vast amounts of meat and pastry, and felt like crap, in general. I have always wanted to view other episodes of this series. Does anyone have a clue what it was?
I think thats the show, Thanks!
As always, the caveat. If you adopt the diet of a period, but not the actual working life of the time, your belly will protest. Sometimes, even if you are doing the work, the gut still won't like the unacustomed vituals. One further note, felling ousy because you've got a slight hangover every morning sure beats the heck out of feeling lousy from the cholera or dysentary you'd likely get from chugging "Adam's Ale" in town back during the Stuart era.
