An Australian woman who has not eaten sugar for 28 years looks half her ageBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/an-australian-woman-who-has-not-eaten-sugar-for-28-years-looks-half-her-age
Carolyn Hartz from Australia, a mother of three children, is 70 years old, and she looks great. The woman admits that 28 years ago she was literally addicted to sugar and sweets. "Most women after the age of 50 believe that it is impossible to maintain a figure and weight. Even after 40, women who have children are sure that it is impossible to return the old figure."
Karolin assures that everything is possible, you just have to really want it and work tirelessly. And, admittedly, her body is the best confirmation of her words.
"With age, our metabolism slows down. This means that you have to take control of your body, make decisions in favor of health and work on yourself a little more."
"I think it's very important to pay attention to what and how much you eat. Thoughtlessness always leads to excess weight. Enjoy every bite. This will help you not to overeat."
For 28 years, Carolyn Hartz has not eaten sugar. She found an alternative — Xylitol, a polyatomic alcohol in the form of colorless crystals that dissolve in water. In terms of calories, xylitol is close to sugar, in sweetness it is close to sucrose, but it has no biological value.
"I gave up sugar 28 years ago. At first it was very difficult, because I was obsessed with sweets and could not do without it. I am sure that it is thanks to the fact that I do not eat sugar that my health is in perfect order and I am not overweight." The Australian does not call for completely giving up your favorite dishes and drinks — everything should be in moderation.
Sleep also plays an important role. Carolyn Hartz tries to sleep at least eight hours a day so that her body and mind recover. Another Australian woman calls for meditation: "Every day before work I meditate for half an hour, it helps me a lot throughout the day. I have become calmer and more collected since I started meditating at the age of 65. It's never too late to start something."
Carolyn Hartz advises women aged 20 and 30 to live a full life. "Be happy, enjoy the successes of others and never worry about age. Don't listen to anyone, be yourself. Yes, life is far from perfect, accept it." "There is no such thing as failure. It's just a stone on the way to success."
