Well, damn.

Listen, I will never stray away from sugar, as it is what keeps me alive. Or it’s what is slowly killing me. It’s one of of those. But you know who hasn’t touched sugar in 28 years? An Australian woman named Carolyn Hartz. And guess what? Hartz is 70-years-old and she obviously doesn’t look like it at all.

Because this is what a woman who hasn’t had any sugar in almost three decades looks like:

Exactly.

Hartz, after being addicted to sweets, gave up sugar 28 years ago in order to keep those wrinkles away, and of course in order to stay healthy. Hartz says that switching from sugar to sweeteners like Xylitol has been a mighty help.

“A lot of women past 50 think that it’s not possible to maintain a reasonable shape and weight when they reach 50 or beyond,” Hartz tells Daily Mail. “I even speak to women who are in their 40s and who have had children and think they cannot regain their post baby body.”

Hartz adds:

“We know our metabolism slows down as we get older it just means we have to take control and make healthier choices and work a little harder. I believe it is very important to be aware of the type of food you eat and the quantity of food you eat. Being mindful while you are eating is a huge factor.

Mindless eating can lead to unnecessary weight gain. I say to my customers “taste and enjoy every mouthful”… it will help you slow down and you will be less likely to overeat.”

Of course there’s more to it, as Hartz suggest you get eight hours a day of sleep (so that’s out the window for me). And she also had this to add:

“I meditate every day usually in the morning. It means I have to get up half an hour earlier but the benefits during my working day is enormous. I am so much calmer and intuitive since I have been meditating. I only started meditating at 65 so it is never too late.”

So remember, folks. If you want to look 15 years younger when you are 70, make sure to not have sugar, get lots of sleep, meditate and hope science comes up with an invention to reverse time.
