Accompanied by the occasional photo, video clip, or itemized diet projections provided by Michael Redman , Taylor walks us through her life as a fame-seeker-turned artist: from her third-place victory at the Daily News Chubby Child contest to her nightclub days with Barbra Streisand, her Lee Strasberg classes with Marilyn Monroe, her Oscar-nominated collaboration with Joseph Bologna her husband of over 50 years on Lovers and Other Strangers , and of course, her Emmy-nominated turn on The Nanny.
No topic is too sacred for Taylor to joke about — not her failed romances, her expulsion from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts for being a too-heavy Juliet, or her expensive addiction to Cristal part of the Vogue Magazine Champagne Diet. She does, however, reserve a little extra tenderness for two characters: her late husband and her mother, the great Frieda Wexler.
Taylor talks about her mother like an undiscovered legend — a fearless broad who loved to pose on car hoods like a movie star and felt entitled to be on a first-name basis with everyone from Joan Crawford to Jesus Christ.

Frieda's unrealized ambitions of stardom were undeniably passed on to her equally boisterous daughter, but if there's any resentment in that legacy, Taylor betrays none of it. Only love and a desire to fulfill both her parents' dreams make it into her public memoirs her father, Charlie, also set out to be a star of silent-movie Westerns, but only made it as far as a smoke-filled wide shot.

And then there's Joe. Bologna cowrote the script to My Life on a Diet with Taylor and lent direction before he died in August — so aside from featuring heavily in stories from on, his humor and their partnership are embedded in the fabric of the piece. Taylor opens the show with a list of her ailments along with a reenacted conversation with her doctor, who bewilderedly asks her why she would put herself through the strain of an off-Broadway show.

Rereading a book from mid seventies. This was a book I read for a class sophomore year of college. I wanted to see how the ideas on nutrition held up after 40 years.
This book was considered revolutionary for its ideas on the relationship between dietary fiber and diseases. Definitely an interesting read, especially the early part where he examines the diet and diseases of non Western societies. Jun 28, Victor rated it it was amazing.
