Beauty Tips by Audrey Hepburn
"My goal was not to have huge luxuries. As a child, I wanted a house with a garden, which I have today. This is what I dreamed of. I’d never worry about age if I knew I could go on being loved and having the possibility to love… So it isn’t age or even death that one fears, as much as loneliness and the lack of affection."
– Audrey Hepburn

With food she practiced strict discipline, and in this sense she dieted her whole life. However, she never had any eating disorder. According to her first husband Mel Ferrer, "She was very careful about her diet, did not drink alcohol except an occasional glass of wine with dinner, and avoided desserts. She chose her diet as a dancer would: plenty of protein and lots of vegetables and salads. She ate sparingly and rarely splurged."
Good Housekeeping in 1959 reported about Audrey: "She always eats the same breakfast: two boiled eggs, one piece of seven-grain whole-wheat toast from a health-food store, and three or four cups of coffee laced with hot milk. Her lunch consists of cottage cheese and fruit salad or of yoghurt with raw vegetables. For dinner, she has meat and several cooked vegetables."
Some later biographies of Audrey would suggest an eating disorder. However people who knew her closely, would always say that this was very far from being true.
According to her friend Audrey Wilder, "she was always eating spaghetti or a version of it." However she did not combine pasta with protein, but with salad. According to her son Sean Ferrer, "she was a food combiner before that diet became fashionable."
Her eating pattern did not vary much over the years, and neither did her weight.
Her years of near-starvation during the war time left her with a passion for chocolates. This is how she said about it: "I’m glad I like sweet things… But if I ate all I wanted, it just wouldn’t do. I’m getting better. Now if I get a box of good chocolates, it will last awhile, maybe for two hours. I used to eat them all without stopping until every last one was gone… I guess it’s a basic form of insecurity."
Until the end of her life, Audrey had a feeling of respect toward food, coming from her childhood. "When you have had the strength to survive starvation, you never again send back a steak simply because it’s under-done."
