Marilyn Monroe Is My Paleo Hero
Even 50 years after her death, Marilyn Monroe is still hailed as a classic beauty. How did she maintain her figure? With the Paleo diet, of course! Recently, an interview with her was discovered in an old issue of Pageant magazine. In the interview, Marilyn talked about her diet and how she maintained her girlish figure that millions still swoon over today. The Marilyn Monroe Diet isn’t the prefect model of Paleo, but it runs pretty close!
Here’s what Monroe said a typical eating day looked like:
Breakfast: Warm milk with two raw eggs whipped into the whole mess.
Dinner: Steak, lamb or liver, which she would broil and eat with 4 or 5 raw carrots.
Evening snack: Hot fudge sundae.
Her diet certainly could have been more balanced! Pretty sure that meal plan isn’t one that would be recommended by most experts. It’s lacking in veggies. Those four or five carrots aren’t enough! Also, it sounds pretty icky. Eggs in milk? No lunch? Oh, Marilyn.
Following the fifty year anniversary of Marilyn’s death, this interview and interest in Marilyn’s diet and fitness regimen have been revisited many times – if only for the sheer entertainment of how unconventional her diet was! We know now that she may not have been too far off the mark in her health regimen. Results are results. Smart girl!
