Hollywood’s iconic actor, Clint Eastwood clocked 92 years on May 21 and it didn’t come as a surprise to celebrate his journey, his person and the performance he still puts in at his age.
Interestingly, details of how the actor has been able to stay in shape have been revealed. However, his appearances are becoming increasingly rare as he clearly has more time between jobs.
Three Secrets Behind Clint Eastwood’s Enduring Career
In his interview with Muscle & Fitness in the 1990s, Clint Eastwood shed some light on the kind of food and meals that he avoids in his quest to stay healthy.
“Stay away from carbohydrates, especially rich desserts,” said Eastwood.
“Keep a scale in your bathroom. Get proper rest. Try to be optimistic. Eat fruits and raw vegetables. Take vitamins. Skip beverages loaded with sugars. Avoid alcohol in excess.”
In another interview for Men’s Health, Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott revealed that his father “does not eat for pleasure.”
His interview with Health and Fitness Revolution was another notable reference as Clint revealed that he had a soft spot for weight training mainly because he’s determined to keep his muscles strong.
“I’d always done muscle-training exercise. Things like chins, clips and calisthenics, but it was when I was in the army that I discovered the weights, the kind of training you’d call bodybuilding today.
“I never wanted to build huge muscles and bulk up like a competitive bodybuilder, but I realised very quickly that the best way to keep your muscles strong, hard, and fit was with weight training. And once I got into weight training, I never gave it up,” Eastwood noted.
