Woman Shows Off Her Fabulous Bikini Body at Seventy Years of Age [VIDEO]

Normally I would say that it’s a really bad idea for a seventy year old woman to wear a bikini, but in this case I will make an exception.  Carolyn Hartz boasts a bikini body and glowing complexion that many women decades younger could only dream of.  Twenty eight years ago she gave up sugar and she credits that for maintaining a slim body that was just made for a bikini.

 ‘A lot of women post 50 think that it’s not possible to maintain a reasonable shape and weight when they reach 50 or beyond,’ the SweetLife founder told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I even speak to women who are in their 40s and who have had children and think they cannot regain their post baby body.’

Mrs Hartz, who is 70, says while it may be ‘a little more difficult’ to stay in shape for women post 40, it can ‘still be possible if you really want to work at it’.

‘We know our metabolism slows down as we get older it just means we have to take control and make healthier choices and work a little harder,’ she said.

‘I believe it is very important to be aware of the type of food you eat and the quantity of food you eat. Being mindful while you are eating is a huge factor.

‘Mindless eating can lead to unnecessary weight gain. I say to my customers “taste and enjoy every mouthful”… it will help you slow down and you will be less likely to overeat.’

– I cut out sugar 28 years ago, which was difficult because I was a sugar addict. I now bake my own sweets and desserts with sugar free Perfect Sweet and nutritious ingredients like almond meal and coconut instead of flour.

– I think it is important to include fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy and protein daily in my diet. I always include protein in every meal as it helps me feel satisfied and helps stabilise my blood sugar levels.

– I love my sweet treats and I don’t deprive myself. I eat 2 pieces of dark chocolate every night.
