To Stay Young, Act Young

You have to hand it to Joan Collins.  She looks good.  She wears red. She’s 79 years old.220px-Joan_Collins_in_Stephane_Rolland_(1)_cropped

And she tweets.

I don’t know how long Collins has been tweeting, but last month she started issuing diet tips.  For a while, she issued one tip a day.

January 8: #1 best exercise – push yourself away from the dining table.

January 9: Ditch all white food, anything made with white flour, rice, pasta, milk, sugar.

January 10: Try just eating eggs only for every meal: hardboiled, scrambled, poached. Very filling, but do it 1 day only.

January 11: Between meals (no snacking) eat an apple.

Really, eat an apple?  Who knew?

I’m going to have to try this one from January 17: If you MUST drink, have vodka or tequila with ice & water, instead of wine.

This one is pretty good, too, from January 20: You must eat life or life will eat you.  And it’s only 39 characters with spaces!

    Thanks for an informative and entertaining piece, not to mention some really sound diet tips. I think Joan looks awesome, but if she’s still tweeting at 99, then I’ll be impressed!!!
