A diet from a 1970s edition of Vogue is trending on Twitter. The diet is actually a variation of a similar diet pioneered by former Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown.
The diet is almost entirely made up of eggs and white wine, and it's totally restrictive, completely unhealthy, and I can only imagine that after the first meal your insides would feel scorched.
This is a diet you go on when you don't have a choice and are coping with personal demons in an unsustainable way. So naturally, it was marketed to women in the 1970s who wanted to look thin for their potential suitors.
1 hard-boiled egg, 1 glass of wine, black coffee
2 hard-boiled eggs, 2 glasses of wine, black coffee
Steak dinner with black pepper, lemon juice, more wine (!), black coffee
Published in her 1962 book Sex and the Single Girl, the diet promises a drop in five pounds.
Let's just say I like my wine with cheese and nutrients and a balanced meal...
