    Who remember Jack La Lanne? For the entire article, click above.

    Jack La Lanne's Average Daily Diet


    Breakfast: Vitamins, Minerals and a protein shake. Jack says, "I have a soy drink with 50 grams of protein in it. That's half the protein I need all day. I have it for breakfast. See this keeps my blood sugar up five or six hours, so I can't get hungry. Too many people are starting their morning with a little fresh fruit and cereal. And that digests within an hour and a half or so. Then your blood sugar's down and you get hungry."

    Lunch: More protein: Jack eats either four egg whites from hard-boiled eggs or an egg-white omelet. Jack says, "That's as much protein you get in a steak [yet only] 60 calories." Fruit: A least five pieces of fruit. Occasionally a juicer drink, using whatever fruits and vegetables are in the fridge.

    Dinner: This is Jack's biggest meal. He eats a salad with at least ten raw vegetables, fish, brown rice, and soup without any cream.

    Amazing.

    I remember Johnny Carson doing some pretty funny imitations of him. One was he was lying on the ground, flat, and he said in his JLL voice, "Now I want you folks to jump straight up in the air without using your arms or legs".
    That cracked me up. Every time I hear Jack's name, I think of that.

    I remember old Jack! :kiss Nice guy.....funny at times, too. Glad he and his wife are still kicking! I have a feeling they would still be kicking no matter how they ate. Some people just have that longevity thing going for them.

    I can see him in my mind's eye even now, going side to side, touching his toes with a "One - and - teoo - and - three - and " with that distinctive voice! ALWAYS full of energy!!

    YES!!! I remember watching him while my Mom did the exercise. Somehow she fell over the chair. From that point she watched the show with me sitting on the couch. :chuckle
