E.g., there is "De victus ratione liber II seu De observantia ciborum" from the 
first half of the 9th century. Very impressing.

De victus ratione liber II seu De observantia ciborum
This  Carolingian manuscript from the period before 850 comes from the  Cloister 
of Fulda. It contains the sole extant copy of the Latin version  of a text 
falsely attributed to Hippocrates: "De victus ratione", which  sets forth the 
foundations of dietetics and emphasizes the antagonism  between the elements of 
fire and water within the body. Numerous  scholars and physicians have relied on 
this text throughout history.
