On Why You Should Stick to Healthy Diets

Rebecca Harrington writes a both funny and insightful piece about what Marilyn Monroe said she ate in an interview for the Peagant Magazine, in 1952.

Marilyn says she only eats two raw eggs in milk for breakfast, skips lunch and eats a broiled dinner of liver, steak or lamb and eat it with 5 raw carrots, after which she would have an fudge sundae.

This morning, I wake up and know one thing: I am hungry, and today is the day liver comes into Whole Foods. I am very excited because I have never had beef liver before. As I drink my egg milk, I imagine the liver awaiting me, quivering in its meat case. What I should do with it? Could it be good with ketchup?

Harrington writes.

I am so hungry that I eat a lamb dinner at 3 p.m. Feel very tired and heavy. Can’t tell if I am losing weight. I suspect this is a diet one can only do while also using recreational barbituates.
