Anyone know what Harry Belafonte's been eating all these years?

I don't know if anyone caught the Harry Belafonte interview on the Colbert Report the other night, but he's the youngest looking 84 year old I've ever seen:

We were were throwing guesses out there as to what his moisturizing routine must be while we watched the interview, so maybe you're on to something here.

Holy smokes that family has good genes, hard to believe she's 57, I'd guess mid-30's from the pic in that link.

For some reason it makes me feel better that he's been working "at it" for 50+ years. It seems like everywhere I've turned lately the news is about people who either have it don't genetically in terms of aging well. 2 meals per day...limiting bread...rice as a safe starch...sounds familiar.

Nothing worse than an anonymous downvote. I upvoted this one.

Hey, for the down voters....You do understand that those of African decent have "built in SPF" equal to "about" 8 SPF...right?

Apropos of nothing: Jack, are you currently eating coconut oil? I stumbled upon another relevant (rat) study: http://jn.nutrition.org/content/125/10/2449.full.pdf

According to wikipedia he's also a newlywed as of 2009, so maybe that's got something to do with it.

He's 84 years old???!! Double U Tee Eff.

OMG maybe he is dyslexic and he is really 48.

Good call on wondering about what he's been eating. I would love to know too.

Update: Perhaps this will shed some light. I found this from 1960!!!!!!

I know exactly what you are saying because I saw Harry on the tube a few days ago an I was stunned at how great he looks. Then I recalled that I idolized Shari - his daughter - who is gorgeous. Looks like she was a spokesperson for Slimfast and now packaged calorie controlled foods called Freshology.

Shari is looking great! http://thepaulleslie.blogspot.com/2010/11/listen-now-to-shari-belafonte-special.html

Whatever they're into, they've flipped the RIGHT epigenentic switches.

Belafonte's derangement appears to be more political than metabolic.
