I've got a few of these issues of Vogue books. I get them at garage sales and Vogue used to issue these beauty books every couple of years and they have some very useful stuff in them. Like, how to make your own soap, or yoga exercises.They also have some funny stuff in them. The other night I read out loud to Stagg and our friend Tricia some of the crazy diets in this old 70's publication. We were howling with laughter.
WINE AND EGGS/ 3 days/ loss: 5lbs (2.5kg)
1 egg, hard-boiled
1 glass white wine (dry preferably Chablis)
2 eggs, hard-boiled is best, but poached if necessary
2 glasses white wine
5oz. (150g.) steak, grilled with black pepper, lemon juice
Remainder of white wine (one bottle per day allowed)
I love this idea for a diet. I'm sure the wine takes away "the edge" of feeling hungry and the black coffee tries to keep you uplifted for a day job. I had to scan one of the pages from this book...below "Steak and Wine" Diet...because I figure no one will believe me.
