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.
