113 Year Old Man Credits These 5 Foods For His Long Life
Meet Bernardo LaPallo. He’s over 113 years old although most would think he is 80 or even younger. He has never been sick a day in his life, avoids certain foods like the plague, eats a lot of organic fruits and vegetables, and regularly consumes these 5 foods, a secret passed down to him by his father which he believes is the key to his longevity.
Bernardo puts it simply, “You are what you eat!” His father was a doctor and lived to be 98 years old. Watch this video where he reveals his secrets and the 5 foods that he says are responsible for his flawless health:
The five foods that help him live a long life are garlic, honey, cinnamon, chocolate and olive oil. His father taught him to avoid things like french fries, red meat (though he says lamb is good) and other bad foods. Be sure to watch the video to see this 113 year old guy talking about things he remembers from when he was 8 (in 1909) like it was yesterday. Just goes to show that you don’t need lots of medication to overcome bad health as long as you never “give yourself” bad health by eating all these terrible things for your body.
To keep his mind sharp and active he solves crossword puzzles and read books. Have you ever seen someone over 100 years old as alive and well as Bernardo? I sure haven’t. Bernardo LaPallo says good old father’s advice and simple foods helped him reach his milestone birthday.
When asked how he feels about turning 113, he said… “I feel great. I feel wonderful. It’s all about obedience and moderation. That’s the story. The key to my success has been obedience and moderation. I have been doing everything my daddy told me to do all these years. Obedience is the key. Moderation is the back up.”
