‘Many women aged 50 and over think it's not possible to maintain their figure and weight,’ Carolyn Hartz told the Daily Mail, and she is determined to prove the opposite by providing several tips.

At the age of 76, Carolyn Hartz says:

She says that your state of mind is just as important as youreating habits.

Reducing sugar doesn't mean total restriction

Carolyn Hartz does not advise replicating this radical decision because it is important not to ‘deprive yourself,’ but she once again asserts that it is important to keep an eye on the size of the portions that are being consumed.

Carolyn Hartz tries to keep her sleep schedule at an average of eight hours a night. She believes this is important for staying healthy. She also practices meditation daily and says the results are incredible. ‘I am much more calm and intuitive since I started meditation,’ says the expert.

She also stays physically active while enjoying nature and walks her dog every day for 30 minutes.
