Here we can see an amazing story: diet advice from someone who's lived 113 years, and was around when the X-ray was invented, and when the first Olympics was held. Now of course, some of it is genes, but some of it can be traced to a careful diet with very little overeating, lots of fruit, hard work, low dose aspirin, and plenty of water.
His end message was simple: Don't eat so much! Having lived through the depression, he basically ate what was given to him, and developed a habit of "under eating".
It's a known fact that living until on older age is partially due to a healthier diet, and this man only proves the fact even further. It's simply amazing to read this man's story.
"You get in the habit of not eating at night, and you realize how good you feel. If you could just tell people not to eat so darn much."
"I eat a lot of fruit every day."
"I drink water all the time," he said, and just a bit of coffee. "I drink a cup and a half of coffee for breakfast and a cup with lunch."
"Don't Eat Too Much"
Fascinating stuff from someone who has seen and done it all pretty much, and has some habits we could all benefit from.
