Even the superfit don’t live forever

Jack LaLanne, Founder of Modern Fitness Movement, died yesterday at age 96. He opened his own health spa in 1936 and was recommending a healthy diet and lifestyle, similar to today’s top nutritionists, on his TV show back in the 50s.  Have you got “pooped-out-itis?” Stay away from processed foods, excercise less intensely but more often and avoid nervous tension. The last part is easier said than done in New York City.
