Hey, that's supposed to be the diet of the oldest U.S. Postal worker(95), who is retiring, and who pretty much attributes his health to his diet of watermelon, alkaline water, and an onion sandwhich with mayo every day. And he says he hasn't had a work sick day in his 37 years of postal service. That's it, I'm going back to my onion sandwhiches.

Everyone that gets to be old has a "secret." Whatever worked for him, but I wouldn't want to eat something so often. Strange. So many great and varied foods to eat.

I highly doubt that was his diet for decades and decades.

All I want to know is....

What type of onion did that guy use on his sandwiches? Whole wheat or white bread? And where did he get his alkaline water from? Was the watermelon with or without seeds...

Yeah. well. eating onion sandwiches, most likely nobody is getting close enough to him to give him anything that could end up killing him. Yeesh

Although I do agree that alkaline water is good.

Jack LaLanne is unquestionably a living, breathing legend and testament to the value of a lifelong plan of healthy eating and exercise. He used to have his own TV show in CA.

The Jack LaLanne Diet - are you tough enough?

I used to watch some of his old clips on youtube about diet and oddly he really wasn't a die hard ''health nut'' when it came to diet as he basically advised that you could have eggs, skim milk or a lean meat for protein along with fibrous vegetables and fruit like apples etc. and just stay off all the fast food and junk food.

Fairly simple stuff and well look at his results .

Here is Jack Lalanne in 1954--well before the days of anabolic steroids.
