After being diagnosed with pre-diabetes, the 69-year-old had to give up the sweet stuff in order to get her blood sugar back on track. The used-to-be sugar addict cut the ingredient out of her diet 28 years ago and now uses an alternative called Xylitol instead. Though her young looks aren’t just due to the fact she cut out sugar – she’s also a fan of regular exercise. “You have to watch what you put in your mouth — that’s number one — and two, you have to move your legs,” Hartz told News.com.au. Despite what Hartz says about the sugar-free diet to thank for her youthful looks, the Internet just doesn’t buy it… What do you think?
