111 year old Bernando LaPallo still going strong

I have been following Bernando for years and I am a huge fan.  He is one of the healthiest older people on the planet and has been a strict plant-eater for the last 106 years. 

Happy birthday Bernando – you are an inspiration.

Here are some amazing facts about Bernando:

  • He is older than the state of Arizona
  • He wrote a book called “Age Less/Live More: Achieving Health and Vitality at 107 and Beyond”, when he was…107 years old
  • He is the world’s oldest blogger
  • When asked on his 111th birthday “How do you stay looking so young?”, he replied, “Good living baby, just taking care of my body”
  • He follows his father’s advice of a strict vegan diet “I live on green vegetables and fruit, I’ve never been sick in my life” 
  • He walks one mile every morning
  • “I bathe my feet every night and massage them in olive oil. never had a corn, I guarantee anybody you got I’ll take my shoes off right now and my feet are as soft as their face” 
  • Other secrets to his longevity include eating garlic, honey, cinnamon and dark chocolate! 

My favourite quote from Bernando is “I make plans to live because I know I’m going to die, but I’m making plans to live”.

What an incredible walking talking example of health and humanity he is.
