As you all know, I love reading anything that might tweak this lifestyle change of mine. While reading yesterday, I came upon an article about the 50th anniversary of Marilyn's death.
She was a beautiful woman. According to her dressmaker, she was 5'5" and fluctuated between 118-140.
In a 1952 magazine article, she revealed a normal day's diet for her:
1 cup of warm milk with two raw eggs mixed into it
Broiled steak, lamb or liver with 4-5 raw carrots
Hot fudge sundae
Now obviously that is hardly nutritious. But she was a little bit ahead of the low carb diet, I'll give her that.
For kicks I decided to eat Marilyn's breakfast, slightly modified. I had 1 cup warmed skim milk, 1 egg yolk, 1 tsp of honey, and cinnamon. It is a total of 160 calories.
Verdict? Not bad, actually. Unfortunately, try as I might, I'm just not too big a fan of warm milk. I think if I try it later this week for breakfast I won't warm the milk up.
