The egg-wine diet gained popularity in 1977, when its "modernized" version (instead of two days — three) was published on the pages of Vogue. However, for the first time they started talking about it much earlier. In 1962, the diet was mentioned in her book by the writer Helen Brown. The work "Sex and a single woman" quickly became a bestseller, so it is not surprising that this strange diet has won the hearts of many girls.

Journalist Alexandra Blizik became curious whether this diet is really as effective as Helen wrote in her book. Then she decided on a bold experiment — to try its effect on herself. First of all, the girl went to the butcher and bought 3 pieces of meat for all the days of the diet.

Then Alexandra went to the store to buy Chablis wine, recommended in the diet. It turned out that a bottle of the cheapest Chablis costs $ 78, so the girl decided to make do with the usual dry white wine for 14 bucks.

At lunch, the girl had to drink two glasses of wine and eat two eggs. She managed to cope with this task only half. Alexandra barely mastered the drink and barely forced herself to eat one egg.

Alexandra was revived a little by the steak she ate at 7 pm. The girl recharged herself with energy and, giggling drunkenly, wasted it until 10 pm, until she fell into a drunken sleep.

The second day came, Monday. Alexandra asked her superiors to work from home, but even this was difficult for her. For half a day, the girl lay in bed with a feeling of a terrible headache. In her free time, the journalist looked through the covers from the archives of Vogue and was surprised:

That day Alexandra felt angry, depressed, drunk and hungry. Already at 9 pm she went to bed, because early in the morning she had to go to work…

The girl poured the wine into a thermos, took with her pre-prepared eggs.

By the middle of the working day, the girl felt completely exhausted.

In the late afternoon, Alexandra couldn't stand it, went to the bathroom and tried to clear her stomach, but she had nothing to vomit with. Then the girl decided to stop bullying her body, ate an avocado and felt a noticeable improvement.
