Richard L. Heinrich

Author of Starch Madness and Orthomolecular Diet

Richard L. Heinrich, at 80, knows science and the scientific approach. He accomplished his first diet in 1943 to gain acceptance into Naval Engineering Officer Training, became an Ensign at 20, and a teacher of thermodynamics at 21.

After stints at Douglas Aircraft (even a junior assignment on the X-2, now hanging in the Smithsonian) and as a project engineer at Oscar Mayer, he commenced businesses in sales, engineering, and manufacturing bridge cranes. He and his wife of 59 years have four sons.

He struggled lifelong with his paleolithic genes, studying and annotating each new diet and fitness guru, concluding a pantheon of heroes vital to his life, which were presented to his four sons. He's walked the walk, now he talks the talk.
