Excerpt Ageless Athletic Assassin: Page 219
STAY FIT IN YOUR 80s
At age 88, Clint Eastwood stars in his latest film “The Mule” based on the true story of Leo Sharp, a World War II veteran in his 80s, who became a drug dealer and courier for the Sinaloa Cartel.
Eastwood, a lifelong non-smoker, has been conscious of his health and fitness since he was a teenager. From his army experience Clint says “I realized the best way to keep muscles strong, hard, and fit was with weight training.” For diet, Clint maintains a low-fat, high protein diet; eats fruits and raw vegetables; takes vitamins, avoids alcohol, and skips sugary drinks. Clint says “Eating healthy food, watching your weight, and exercise should be a lifetime habit - best begun when you are as young as possible.”
In 1997 at age 87, Gloria Stuart broke through as a star in her Oscar-nominated performance as “Old Rose” in “Titanic” movie. The secret to Gloria’s long life was detailed in her memoir “I Just Kept Hoping” where she considered “Titanic” her last chance to finally prove she could be a first-rank actress. Research published in Psychological Science found that people who report having a strong purpose in life tend to outlive their peers.
