The world’s oldest yoga teacher is still doing her sun salutations at 97 and she says maintaining healthy eating habits has been important. Tao Porchon-Lynch said portion size helps her manage her weight. “Most people overeat and put too much food on their plate. Pause a moment to think about how many people are without food, and you won’t eat so much,” she said in an interview last year. Senior athlete Fred Winter who’s still doing 100 push-ups everyday follows elements of the Mediterranean Diet trying to eat blueberries and salmon every single week. The diet, which is rich in age-fighting compounds like anti-oxidants and heart-healthy omega-3s, has been shown in studies to stave off certain diseases and even help one live longer, by protecting DNA against damage.
