Marilyn Monroe's Diet & Exercise Plan

Marilyn Monroe was known for having an amazing body, women today are still trying to look like her. I have always loved how womanly her figure was, she even had fat rolls. Women today seem to think fat rolls are something to be ashamed of. They are totally normal and Marilyn is the perfect example of that. Women in the 1950's were actually shamed for being too skinny! There were many advertisements shaming skinny girls and telling them men won't like them unless they gain weight. One said "if you want to be popular, you can't afford to be skinny". I know it's hard to believe, things have changed so much. They even had products for women to take to gain weight.


Marilyn Monroe had quite a bizarre diet. She did an interview with Pageant Magazine in 1952, here's what she said. 


Breakfast

"I've been told that my eating habits are absolutely bizarre, but I don't think so. Before I take my morning shower, I start warming a cup of milk on the hot plate I keep in my hotel room. When it's hot, I break two raw eggs into the milk, whip them up with a fork, and drink them while I'm dressing. I supplement this with a multi-vitamin pill, and I doubt if any doctor could recommend a more nourishing breakfast for a working girl in a hurry."


Dinner

"My dinners at home are startlingly simple. Every night I stop at the market near my hotel and pick up a steak, lamb chops or some liver, which I broil in the electric oven in my room. I usually eat four or five raw carrots with my meat, and that is all. I must be part rabbit; I never get bored with raw carrots."


Dessert

"P.S. It's a good thing, I suppose, that I eat simply during the day, for in recent months I have developed the habit of stopping off at Wil Wright's ice cream parlor for a hot fudge sundae on my way home from my evening drama classes. I'm sure that I couldn't allow myself this indulgence were it not that my normal diet is composed almost totally of protein foods.”

Marilyn's exercise routine is quite refreshing, she did not over work herself or set impossible goals. She did simple exercises that she knew worked for her and stayed consistent. Here is what she said. 


Exercise

"Each morning after I brush my teeth, wash my face and shake off the first deep layer of sleep, I lie down on the floor beside my bed and begin my first exercise. It is a simple bust-firming routine which consists of lifting five-pound weights from a spread-eagle arm position to a point directly above my head. I do this 15 times, slowly. I repeat the exercise another 15 times from a position with my arms above my head. Then, with my arms at a 45-degree angle from the floor, I move my weights in circles until I'm tired. I don't count rhythmically like the exercise people on the radio; I couldn't stand exercise if I had to feel regimented about it.”

                                           
I think we all tend to over complicate our diets and workout programs. Marilyn showed that doing simple exercises and eating well is all you need. Would you try out Marilyn's eating habits? Let me know!
