On Diet:

"My method is no method to be recommended to anyone. It's completely erratic. If I see I'm getting overweight, I psych myself into not eating. I use diet pills, diuretics, any capsule to stop. I tell myself food is horrible, that I am an ethereal creature who does not such disgusting things as to eat ot to eliminate. Or I think of all the romantic heroines who died of consumption. And I end up eating vast amounts of laxatives, having great purges on overdoses of laxatives. I do this for three days and than my stomach shrinks. I think I'm dying in the mornings. I don't do anything healthy like exercise. As I say is not a method to be recommended."
