Natalie Schafer is acknowledged for two issues: her function as Lovey Howell in Gilligan’s Island and for being 1 of the most stylish girls in Hollywood in the ’60s.
Schafer was in 99 episodes of Gilligan’s Island, and all through her time on the sequence she went through many difficulties when seeking to hold up her glam visual appearance.
As effective as she was, it was not with no adhering to strict, and often not-so-strict recommendations.
In a 1965 job interview with Carlsbad Present-Argus, Schafer gave a couple of of her personalized natural beauty tips. She always experienced an answer for how to look your most effective, even whilst stranded on an island.
“I adore cooking and taking in, and haven’t the character to abstain,” she explained. “So I just induldge myself, and then go on a diet regime if my body weight goes above 124.”
Though Schafer would diet regime, she did not appear to be too concerned about what people today assumed of her. So substantially so, that this subsequent elegance suggestion is the actual opposite of what most medical professionals would inform you to do.
“I think I have tried every single food plan there is, but my favourite I invented myself. The ice cream diet regime,” she explained. “I try to eat a quart of ice product a working day: a bowl of vanilla with my coffee in the morning, two bowls of unique flavors at lunch, a bowl of any taste as an afternoon snack, and two bowls for evening meal. I can get rid of a few lbs in five days.”
We’d really like to know particularly how quite a few possibilities of ice product flavors Schafer had in her freezer! The ice product diet program is an exciting one particular, but somehow appeared to work for Schafer, who lived to be 90 and passed absent in 1991.
According to the job interview, Schafer learned to appreciate the casual California way of life, which also served her with her well being journey. So what does one particular do for physical exercise right after eating a quart of ice cream?
“I have a swimming pool now,” she mentioned. “It really is pretty smaller, but no subject. It really is big sufficient for workout. I swim every day, au naturel, prior to I go to get the job done and when I arrive home. I won’t be able to bear to do routines frequently, but in the water it’s entertaining. It is also additional effective since the water offers resistance.”
Schafer swore by the diet regime. Having said that, she said there was one draw back.
“Of system, it won’t make you incredibly common in restaraunts,” she mentioned. “I bear in mind going to Romanoffs in Beverly Hills for meal when when I was next the diet. I experienced chocolate ice product… the waiter considered I was crazy!”
Schafer’s solution to acquiring energy: a teaspoon of honey in espresso or desired drink of selection. And her most loved glam splendor idea: untrue eyelashes. Her previous magnificence suggestion:
“Don clothes and hair kinds of the time, not these you wore in your twenties,” she stated.
A quart of ice cream a day will retain the health care provider away.
