Almost 70-Year-Old Grandma Reveals Secret Behind Her Incredible Body, But Internet Reacts With Anger

Meet Carolyn Hartz – the owner of SweetLife and grandmother that went on a sugar-free diet 28 years ago and now doesn’t even look half her age.

After being diagnosed with pre-diabetes, the 69-year-old had to give up the sweet stuff 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 youthful looks aren’t just due to the fact she cut out sugar – she also sticks with an exercise program. “You have to watch what you put in your mouth — that’s number one — and two, you have to move your legs,” Hartz told about her beauty secrets to News.com.au. Despite what Hartz says about the sugar-free diet to thank for her looking young, the Internet just doesn’t buy her healthy lifestyle preachings… What do you think? Did she found a fountain of youth, or is it the money that’s the culprit behind aging gracefully?

I do not understand what all of this is about. This woman is the owner of SweetLife, a company that sells products containing Xylitol. All of that is revealed. Therefore, this is a simple marketing plot, not more, and not less. Her looks and any reason behind it are not noteworthy but for the promotion of her own products. Admittedly, promiting one-sided nutrition never is a good thing, but we have too little information to say whether she is doing it. Thus: simply a disregardable debate.

She chose not to become a diabetic, and stay in shape - another way to avoid diabetes. I'm quite sure she wouldn't have given up sugar if that wasn't the case. Why do people find it so necessary to be hostile when people take care of themselves? Why is it so scary?

If you want to be inspired, perhaps you shouldn't spend so much time on clickbait sites like BP.

Aunt Messy, if there's anyone on this planet who has no room to call anyone else "sour", that person would be you.
