William Banting is my Great Great Great Great Grandfather, on my Dad's side of the family.

The Banting Diet is named after William, and what he did over 150 years ago to help people lose weight, firstly himself.

William is one of only three men to have his name put in the dictionary, his name actually became a global movement called Bantingism, the definition above is my updated version of 1860's Bantingism, it's still in the dictionary today.
