The Gayelord Hauser healthy diet
During the 1930’s in Los Angeles, Gayelord Hauser developed something that didn’t exist before: a healthy food diet. It was not about losing weight as obesity wasn’t a concern back then. A genius in nutrition and marketing, he created a diet for living younger and longer. Gayelord Hauser diet was based on eating every day 5 ingredients which he claimed would add 5 years of life for each one of them. Those 5 “wonder food” were: (1) yogurt, (2) brewers yeast, (3) powdered skim milk, (4) wheat germ, and (5) blackstrap molasses.
A successful dietitian and businessman
For trivia buffs, Hauser was living in Hollywood, California, where he became popular among movie stars such as Adele Astaire (Fred Astaire elder sister), Marlene Dietrich, Paulette Goddard, Gloria Swanson, and, most famously, Greta Garbo with whom he may have been romantically involved. Later, among those seeking his advice and guidance were Queen Alexandra of Yugoslavia, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergmann, Jeanne Moreau, and the Duchess of Windsor.
