4 Surprising Things Martha Stewart Does to Stay Healthy and Look Younger

4 Surprising Things Martha Stewart Does to Stay Healthy and Look Younger

The 75-year-old cooking maven and daytime television megastar shared her approach to eating healthy on The Dr. Oz show.

Martha Stewart appeared on The Dr. Oz show earlier this month and ended up discussing her age with the show's audience. Many viewers (including me) were shocked to learn that Stewart is 75 years old, since it goes without saying that the cooking icon's appearance remains so youthful.

The show proceeded to share pictures of Stewart spanning from 2001 to now, and the side-by-side comparison (you can watch the entire program right here) truly confirms that not much has physically changed for the television superstar in almost two decades.

It begs the question: How does Martha Stewart remain so healthy and youthful at her age?

Stewart admitted that her mother graced her with stellar genes—but that an intense exercise routine is also part of it. She also shared other diet and lifestyle secrets to staying in good health. Here are few tidbits from Martha Stewart's surprisingly healthy diet that you can adopt yourself.

She Eats Lots of Fresh Fish

When it comes to her diet, Stewart is a really big fan of seafood, she told Dr. Oz. "I eat well. I don't eat a lot of meat—more of a fish-based diet," she told the doctor.

She Sips Green Juice Every Morning

Stewart starts every single day the same way: with a fresh glass of her now-famous green juice.

She Only Eats Organic Veggies From Her Garden

Okay, so maybe growing your own vegetables isn't realistic for you, but Stewart's dedication to eating fresh, local produce is a practice we can all try to emulate.

"I make [the green juice] out of vegetables that I grow," Stewart told Dr. "I grow in the greenhouse in the winter and the garden in the summer. And they're organic vegetables."

She Relies on Alternative Flours

What's more synonymous with Martha Stewart than baking tips? Here's one directly from the master herself: Stay away from regular white flour.

"I think that we've become very reliant on the soft, white flours, which are not necessarily the most nutritional, the healthiest, the best for you," Stewart told Dr. "So we've done a lot of experimentation. You can search for the best ingredients, and there are so many small mills that are really grinding up some really great flours these days."

Looking for some nontraditional flours that you can experiment with at home? There's whole wheat flour, oat flour, gluten-free cauliflower flour, chickpea flour, or even coconut flour—and many others you can substitute.

Bottom line: Martha is definitely #blessed with good genes, but she may be on to something with her diet, too. It turns out that eating fish, cutting calories, and opting for whole grains may help you live a longer—and healthier—life.


4 Surprising Things That Can Dry Out Your Lips

Dry lips can sneak up on you. At first, you might hardly notice if your lips are a little dry, but if you wait too long to treat the problem, you can end up feeling uncomfortably dry. That can make eating, drinking, smooching, and even talking unpleasant.

What causes dry lips? Check out some of the possible triggers, and learn how to treat chapped lips at the first sign of symptoms.

Your lipstick: Matte formulas in particular can lead to dryness (they have less oil in them to give them that finish) but any lipstick can leave your lips looking less than smooth after a while. Prime your lips with a moisturizing product like ChapStick Total Hydration 3 in 1 first, then apply your lip color on top of it for a flawless look that won&rsquot dry you out.

Having a home that&rsquos too dry: Humidity in the air helps your skin and lips stay moisturized, so if the air in your home is too dry, you may find yourself using more moisturizer than usual. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends keeping the air inside your home below 60 percent humidity&mdashideally between 30 percent and 50 percent humidity. (You don't want it to be too high, either, because that may cause mold growth.) If you're not sure what the humidity level in your home is, you can buy a small, inexpensive digital meter at a hardware store or online, and leave it inside your home take a measurement. If the humidity level is too low, buy a humidifier to increase it.

That glass of wine: Alcohol dehydrates the body and causes you to urinate more than usual, which can leave you with chapped lips and dry skin. Alternating between wine and water can help lessen the effects of dehydration and prevent you from drinking as much&mdashthe U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that if you are going to drink alcohol, women limit themselves to one serving a day and men cap themselves at two.

Licking your lips: If this is a habit of yours, see if you can break it. It may sound counterintuitive, but licking your lips doesn't prevent your lips from drying out. It does the opposite, because the saliva evaporates quickly and leaves your lips even drier than they were before you licked them. Instead, apply ChapStick and in cold weather, cover your lips with a scarf for extra protection.


How Yoga Can Help You Look Younger Than Your Years

Stop the southern drift with this targeted anti-aging yoga workout that helps shore up your weak spots.

To keep your body looking and feeling its best with each passing year, say "om." Studies have shown that doing yoga is one of the greatest ways to slow the clock. And it&aposs not just because you&aposre helping your muscles remain limber𠅊 regular yoga practice may increase the levels of stay-young hormones that can slow the aging process.

"As you get older, you lose lean muscle mass𠅊s much as 15 percent per decade if you&aposre not active," says Vonda Wright, MD, an orthopedic surgeon and the author of Fitness After 40. But doing yoga plus other strength exercise at least four or five times a week helps slow this loss so that even a 60-something can have as much lean muscle mass as someone 20 years younger, she adds.

Yoga is also especially good at battling the sag that comes as time marches on, notes Janiene Luke, MD, associate professor of dermatology at Loma Linda University in California. "The skin is like a drape for the underlying musculature," she says, "so if those muscles are toned, you&aposll look firmer and your skin will be less baggy."

Even just a few minutes a day can make a big difference, says Kristin McGee, Health&aposs contributing yoga and wellness editor and a yoga instructor in New York City, who put together a few of her favorite gravity-fighting poses. They&aposre great for you anytime but are particularly key now, as we bounce back from the holidays and set ourselves up for our healthiest year yet.


10 All-Natural Ways to Stay Young

Hello, fountain of youth! Here's how to stay young according to the pros&mdashwhile boosting brain power, squashing stress, and smoothing skin.

Certain celebs (we see you, Jennifer Lopez!) somehow seem to age in reverse. Besides skipping sugar-because really, who would want to do that for a lifetime?!-are there secrets to beat the constantly-ticking aging clock? Absolutely, experts say. (And no, you don&apost need an array of crazy pills and potions.) Try these 10 smart strategies that are natural age-erasers.

1. Give yourself a break

Recent studies show that stress causes physical changes in the body that can accelerate aging. Surges of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol cause blood pressure to rise and the heart to beat faster. These days, when our stressors seem unrelenting (a steady stream of job pressures, traffic jams, money problems), chronic doses of adrenaline and cortisol take a heavy toll on our physical and emotional health. "Sixty to 90 percent of all doctors&apos visits each year are related to anxiety, depression, obsessive anger and hostility, insomnia, high blood pressure, heart attacks-all problems caused by stress," says Herbert Benson, M.D., author of The Relaxation Response and a founder and director emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine in Boston.

The most effective way to halt this destructive chain of events is to meditate, using what Dr. Benson calls "the relaxation response." The technique involves repeating a mantra-a word, sound, phrase, or prayer-for as little as 10 minutes a day.

Try it! Once or twice daily, for 10 to 20 minutes, sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, relax your muscles, roll your head, neck, and shoulders, and breathe deeply. On each exhale, repeat your mantra (here are 10 possibilities to inspire yours). If other thoughts try to invade, says Dr. Benson, tell yourself, "Oh, well," and return to your word or phrase. When you&aposre done, keep your eyes closed for an extra minute slowly allow everyday thoughts to flow back into your mind. Still not into the idea of meditation? Do yoga, or something active and repetitive, like mindful running, instead. Focus on your breathing and how your feet land with each stride. Get your to-do list out of your head, says Dr. Benson.

2. Consume more fat

The healthy kind, that is. Omega-3 fatty acids (found in salmon, walnuts, and seeds) help stabilize your mood, maintain bone strength, and help prevent visible signs of aging by reducing inflammation in the body, explains Nicholas Perricone, M.D., a leading anti-aging expert and author of 7 Secrets to Beauty, Health, and Longevity. "Omega-3s also boost the ability of the body&aposs enzymes to pull fat out of storage-from your hips, say-and use it as energy," he says. "Omega-3s keep you healthy and your skin radiant."

Try it! "Virtually every expert agrees that you need two grams of omega-3 fatty acids a day," says Michael Roizen, M.D., chair of the division of anesthesiology at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and coauthor of You on a Diet. Eat plenty of fatty fish such as wild salmon (a 3-ounce serving has 6.9 grams), as well as walnuts (one-half ounce has 9.2 grams), says Dr. Roizen. If you aren&apost getting enough omega-3s from your diet, consider taking fish-oil supplements. (Related: Vegetarian Foods That Offer a Healthy Dose of Omega-3 Fatty Acids)

3. Get off the couch

Not only does regular exercise help you lose weight, tone muscles, build healthier bones, and boost mood, it can also help you think clearly. Studies cited by the National Institute on Aging demonstrate a connection between physical exercise and better brain power. "Walking for just 10 minutes a day lowers your risk of Alzheimer&aposs by 40 percent," says Gary Small, M.D., director of the UCLA Center on Aging and coauthor of The Healthy Brain Kit. "Physical conditioning reduces stress and anxiety, which wipe out your memory bank."

Try it! Make time for three 20-minute workouts a week, like this 20-minute routine from celebrity trainer Lacey Stone. You can also run, bike, swim, dance-simply do whatever you enjoy most.

4. Feel the love

Anyone who&aposs ever fallen head over heels or discovered an activity that makes them eager to jump out of bed in the morning knows that passion is a powerful drug. "It&aposs the central motivation of all human activity," says Gail Sheehy in her book, Sex and the Seasoned Woman. The ability to embrace life boosts self-esteem, fuels the immune system, and improves cardiovascular health. Passion in bed can be particularly beneficial: "Loving touches release hormones, including oxytocin, that reduce stress and anxiety," says Mehmet Oz, M.D., professor of surgery and vice chairman of cardiovascular services at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University, as well as the coauthor of You on a Diet. "If sex is a purely hedonistic process, it won&apost have the same results."

Try it! Banish boredom and isolation at all costs. Rekindle the flames with your partner. Or discover a new love in the form of a mental or physical pursuit: Take up painting, join a book club, start a running program. Do whatever it is that makes you feel energized and alive.

5. Drink red wine

A groundbreaking study showed that mice on a high-fat diet supplemented with resveratrol, a substance found in the skin of grapes, had longer average lifespans than those not given the resveratrol. According to the study&aposs co-lead researcher Rafael de Cabo, Ph.D., of the National Institute on Aging, resveratrol clearly reduced the risk of diabetes and liver problems in mice, leading to a significant decline in obesity-related deaths. But here&aposs the catch: "You&aposd have to drink 180 bottles of red wine a day to get the same benefits," says Dr. Roizen.

Researchers are working now to improve the potency of resveratrol in order to develop a pill that contains the optimum amount of the substance. In the meantime, there&aposs plenty of evidence that a little red wine can offset a host of health problems. An animal study from Johns Hopkins University suggested that red wine can diminish brain damage caused by stroke by as much as 40 percent. And research released last year showed that grape-seed procyanidins, found in red wine, helps reduce arterial clogging, resulting in lower blood-cholesterol levels and a reduction in deaths from heart disease.

Try it! Until an optimally potent resveratrol pill is available, enjoy red wine, but it&aposs best to follow the latest alcohol guidelines from the American Medical Association and drink no more than one glass (4 ounces) a day for your health.

6. Do yoga

More energy, better posture, greater flexibility, improved mood, and less stress are just some of the rewards of this mind-body workout. "Yoga means &aposunion&apos in Sanskrit," says Cyndi Lee, founder of New York City&aposs Om Yoga. "Through conscious yoga breathing, you become aware of the connection between mind and body." That translates into major anti-aging advantages. Yogic breathing has been shown to oxygenate the cells, ridding them of toxins, helping prevent illness, and making skin radiant. Unlike other exercises, says Lee, yoga poses are designed to work the inside of your body as well as the outside, which helps rejuvenate the digestive system, the reproductive system, even the immune system. "Yoga is like wringing your body out like a washcloth," she says. "It&aposs one of the best ways to keep things moving."

Try it! Practice yoga or other mind-body activities at least twice a week, says Lee, to give yourself an energy boost, help build bone mass, and de-stress.

7. Bite into a superfruit

There&aposs a good reason we&aposre hearing so much about pomegranates these days. "Current studies show that they are more beneficial than other fruits," says Dr. Oz. Pomegranate juice has been found to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, possibly delay the onset of atherosclerosis, and potentially help reduce the risk of Alzheimer&aposs disease researchers believe it may also help prevent some forms of cancer from starting or progressing. Pomegranates can also protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays.

Another promising anti-ager is the goji berry, a fruit native to Tibet that boasts 500 times more vitamin C by weight than an orange and is considered to be the most abundant source of carotenoids, a type of antioxidant, on earth. This little nutritional powerhouse-which tastes like a denser, sweeter cranberry-also contains more iron than spinach, 18 amino acids, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E, according to Dr. Perricone. The goji berry stimulates the release of human growth hormone, a natural substance in the body that improves our ability to sleep, helps us look younger, reduces fat, improves memory, boosts libido, and enhances the immune system, he says.

Try it! Snack on a handful of dried goji berries throughout the day. Be sure to buy ones from Tibet, because they have high serum levels, advises Dr. Perricone. In addition, drink pomegranate juice. Not a fan of the flavor? Buy it in concentrate and add a tablespoonful daily to kefir (or plain yogurt), suggests Dr. Perricone.

8. Sip green tea

The health buzz about this brew keeps getting stronger: Green tea has been found to reduce the risk of breast cancer and prevent remissions, and now it&aposs being tested as a way to help prevent bladder, colorectal, and lung cancer recurrence. "Green tea is an amazing compound in terms of blocking the signaling network that is linked with the progression of cancer," says Amy Yee, Ph.D., a professor of biochemistry at Tufts University and principal investigator of the cancer study. It&aposs also an effective weight-management agent because it appears to rev up metabolism, says Dr. Roizen. Preliminary research indicates that green tea may even help prevent Alzheimer&aposs disease. A Japanese study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that drinking at least one cup a day can help keep your brain sharp as you get older.

Try it! Sip two or three cups daily for the ultimate health benefits, says Yee.

9. Slather your skin with supplements

Our body&aposs largest organ-skin-shows the signs of aging more than any other body part.

"The most important preventive measure you can take against the sun is to build up your antioxidant levels and maintain adequate levels of vitamins A, C, D and E," says Jennifer Landa, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD. "Eating lots of brightly colored organic fruits and vegetables also boosts levels of these vitamins. These powerful vitamins work liked natural sunscreen for the body, aiding in the prevention of skin aging and skin cancer."

Retinol, a type of vitamin A (and a nonprescription, weaker-strength relative of Retin-A), is considered the most effective over-the-counter treatment to smooth the skin and prevent wrinkles, says David Colbert, M.D., founder of the New York Dermatology Group in New York City. Retinols cause the skin to gently peel, revealing a silkier, rosier, and more supple layer. Dr. Perricone touts the benefits of alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body. "Alpha lipoic acid is a wonderful anti-aging mechanism," he says. It has been shown to reduce fine lines, improve skin texture, tighten pores, and give skin a general radiance.

Another powerful age-defying ingredient is madecassol, or madecassoside, an Asian plant extract that helps plump the skin, minimize fine lines, and restore a youthful glow, says Dr. Colbert. Madecassol has been used in France for decades to help heal scars and wounds. European studies have also found that it helps diminish wrinkles, restores firmness to skin, and hydrates skin cells.

Try it! Look for skin creams containing retinols. (Not sure where to start?

Some expert-approved choices this way: The Best Vitamin C Skin-Care Products for Brighter, Younger-Looking Skin.

Finally, be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunblock every day to protect against UVA and UVB rays, which cause aging and skin cancer.

10. Do mental aerobics

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that brain exercises can prevent cognitive decline, and the benefits can last for as many as five years. In his own research, Dr. Small has found that a two-week program of mental training can actually rewire the brain. "We&aposve seen evidence on brain scans that memory improves," he says.

Later Career

Stewart was released from prison on March 4, 2005, just after NBC announced she would host two new shows: a daytime talk and how-to show and a spin-off of the reality show The Apprentice produced by Mark Burnett and Donald Trump. Stewart finished her sentence by serving five months of house arrest at her home in Bedford, New York.

While Stewart&aposs version of The Apprentice failed to attract enough viewers, her self-titled syndicated daytime program has been on the air since 2005. The company she established, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, continued to grow in new directions. The business added several non-Stewart publications, including Everyday Food and Body + Soul.

Stewart continues to be a television presence, appearing as a judge on Chopped, Bakeaway Campਊnd more.


Big Martha, RIP

She may have had her own struggles with the health care system, but Martha Kostyra, in many ways, was just about the perfect example of living well into your later years -- still active and energetic as she approached her 93rd birthday. She seemed indomitable, so her death was likely a shock to her daughter, says Pamela Sollenberger, MS, a certified grief counselor who serves on the advisory board for the American Academy of Grief Counseling.

"When someone has been very ill for a long time, we're a lot further along in our grieving when that person dies," she says. "But if it's a relatively sudden loss, we have no time to prepare.'

The loss of a parent is particularly devastating. "It doesn't matter what age you are, you end up becoming that orphan," says Sollenberger. "We look to our parents as the protector, the guide, the nurturer, the unconditional love source."

And just because Stewart isn't wearing her grief on her crisply ironed sleeve doesn't mean she isn't struggling in private. "Your grief is unique only to you. Yours is different than mine, Martha Stewart's is different than ours," Sollenberger says. "We may go through the same stages of grief, but we do it differently. The process takes a lot of time, and nobody can tell you when it's time to move on."

One way of grappling with loss is to channel energies into something that honors that person and creates a legacy for them. For Stewart, this could mean deepening her involvement with the Martha Stewart Center for Living, which mattered so much to her mother. Others, says Sollenberger, might work with underprivileged children, fund a scholarship, or contribute their efforts to some other cause that was important to the person they lost. Some people engage in what Sollenberger calls "instrumental grieving," which could be anything from chopping wood to hoeing the garden to kickboxing. "Sometimes it's easier to exercise your grief than to talk about it," she says.

Following this regimen will help build collagen, erase fine lines and pigmentation, and generally help thicken your skin. Remember: your skin gets thinner with age.&rdquo&mdashDr. Lamees Hamdan, founder and CEO of Shiffa

They encourage healthy skin cell production and help unclog pores, speed cell turnover, even out discoloration, and smooth skin.&rdquo&mdashDr. Lamees Hamdan, founder and CEO of Shiffa

"Longer bangs are ideal to help mask the aging process since it softens the facial features, emphasizes the eyes and also can discreetly hide fine lines and wrinkles.
