Marilyn Monroe’s Diet

You’re in for a treat! I own a copy of the September 1952 Pageant Magazine with the pictorial spread on Marilyn Monroe’s article “How I Stay in Shape.” It has been circulated on the web before but the site that hosted the original scans appears to have gone offline. Since then numerous blogs and articles have lifted those scans (you can tell because they all have the same dog ear creases and markings.) I have scanned the article in much larger file size.

Pageant Magazine was a bawdy read at the time and primarily designed for men.

It was also very cheeky with “articles” like this one about those kooky women drivers. And now, here is the entire Marilyn Monroe “How I Stay in Shape” article!
