An elderly woman who, despite her age, continues to take part in candid filming, has revealed the secret of maintaining her youth. Her advice is quoted by the Daily Mail.
Leslie Carleton, 62, who lives in Los Angeles and the Indonesian island of Bali, regularly poses for magazines, fashion catalogs and television advertisements. In addition, she became the oldest contender to win the Sports Illustrated bikini competition.
Carlton stated that strangers are regularly surprised when they find out about her real age, as she looks 20 years younger. The American also admitted that in her youth she never watched her diet, but at the age of 20 she decided to follow the recommendations of her relative.
“I listened to my grandmother's advice. She was a dancer and ate healthy meals in small meals every two to three hours. I also followed the rule that the amount of food containing carbohydrates and protein should fit in the palm, and the amount of vegetables should be twice as much,”the woman explained.
The model also noted that at the age of 30 she became interested in sports: she took up skiing and received a black belt in karate. In addition, for the past 10 years, Carlton has been involved in weightlifting, which she says helps her stay strong and fit at 60.
“I look at photographs where I am 20 years old and I understand that now I look exactly the same. The skin has changed, but the body has not. You need to continue to work on yourself. You are what you eat and how you think,”concluded the heroine of the material.
In January, it became known about a resident of the English city of Leighton Buzzard, who lost 60 kilograms without dieting, and then revealed the method of her weight loss. For 12 weeks, the Englishwoman, whose body weight was 127 kilograms, lost weight to 67 kilograms. “The difference lies in the size of the portions, which now fit on a small plate. In addition, I refused to have snacks, "- shared, in particular, the heroine.
