Abstract

We review Stigler's diet problem, its impact on linear programming and operations research, and we determine minimum cost diets using updated nutritional and cost data. We also discuss how Stigler's diet problem formulation and its extensions have, over the years, influenced dietitians and nutritionists in their search for more wholesome but cost-effective diets.
