This 70 Year Old's Fitness Regimen is Age-Defying

This 70 Year Old's Fitness Regimen is Age-Defying

A whole new level in age defying beauty has been reached and the entire world clamoring to find out how to replicate its results. It is something that is going to change how you see old age and life!

This photograph of a beautiful woman posing on the beach nearly broke the internet recently, when websurfers found out her age. 

The Story of Carolyn

Australian-born Carolyn Hartz spent a good deal of her life subscribing to what most would consider a "normal" diet and exercise program, until about 30 years ago when a devastating diabetes diagnosis changed her life forever.

Diabetes threatens approximately 371 million people globally and in 2012, it was responsible for more than 1.5 million deaths worldwide. Carolyn knew she would have to make some serious changes in her life.

The Beginning of Change

When Carolyn was diagnosed with diabetes, she was forced to give up all the things she loved to eat. She began to make the very difficult, yet necessary changes in her diet which were responsible for leading her back to a healthy lifestyle.

She eliminated refined white sugar completely from her diet which resulted in her blood sugar level normalizing within the span of a year. Refined sugar has been proven to be very addictive and one of the worst killers of the century. Aside from increasing your blood sugar level, it also increases the risk of heart disease and death.

Artificially sweetened beverages like energy drinks and sodas, and highly processed foods like pastries, cookies, cakes, and ready to eat cereals all are notorious sources of refined sugar. If you have a craving for something sweet, opt for fruit based desserts and other products sweetened with fructose.

A New Way to Lead Life

In addition to radically changing her diet, Hartz also started actively breaking out of the confines of her sedentary lifestyle. She adopted a completely new workout and beauty regime because she recognized that simply cutting refined sugar and conscientious diet would not make her completely fit or healthy.

She began by incorporating walking in her daily routine, then slowly added in mindfulness meditation sessions. She also started to get more active in sports, and just as Hartz was approaching her 70th birthday, she decided to tackle learning the new sport of lawn tennis.

And we agree that it’s never too late to try something new. Age is after all just a number. You can do anything if you put your mind to it and that includes leading a healthy life.

Top Tips to a Healthy Life

Apart from walking, sports, lawn tennis and meditation, Carolyn also makes sure to get a full 8 hours of sleep, so that she wakes up every morning fresh and revitalized, and ready to win the day.

Remember, you are what you eat, so eat with care. Cut out harmful processed food and refined sugar and be sure to get your body moving on a regular basis. 

The Birth of an Entrepreneur

The lifestyle change and newly found sense of life propelled Carolyn launch SweetLife, her very own artificial sweetener company, specifically for people with diabetes. The 100% Australian owned business is committed to helping people quit sugar while still enjoying the sweet things in life.
