A 70-year-old entrepreneur and mother-of-three from Perth, Australia has been hitting the news for her youthful looks. Carolyn Hartz said that the secret to her amazing body is having a healthy lifestyle and cutting sugar out of her diet 30 years ago.
It’s been two months since her photos have gone viral; she looks younger than her actual age. Though some people are impressed with how she looks, a lot have been so skeptical that she went under surgery; some are also accusing that she hasn’t been very honest about how she maintains looking so young.
Carol has been appearing in different TV shows all over the world like Brazil, Belgium, Ireland, and Korea. She said that she was a former sugar addict who often eats cakes. In fact, she eats cheesecake for breakfast but when she was about 69 years old, she was diagnosed as pre-diabetic so she had no choice but to cut sugar completely out of her diet.
Carol admits that she still craves for sweet but she relies on xylitol, an all-natural sweetener which her company, Sweet Life, imports. She is currently baking her own sugar-free treats with yummy ingredients like almond milk and coconut.
Aside from her all sugar-free diet, she also practices yoga and she meditates regularly. She also tries to balance work and relaxation as much as she could.
Despite the fact that people are not on her side when it comes to her lifestyle and posting different comments on social media, she pointed out the obstacles in life in an interview with news.co.au: “I’ve always told my three children that life is not perfect. Everything won’t go the way you want it to go, but that’s fine. If you do have a challenge or a setback, get up. Go again. Because often that’s the universe poking you in another direction. I’m a great believer in one door closes and another door opens.”
