When I’m off the road, and I can really control my diet down to the calorie, I juice seven days a week. Every afternoon, whatever I have at hand, beets, carrots, ginger, whatever. I juice, literally, every single day. And on the road, I try to find fresh juice wherever I can.

The secret to longevity, as I see it, has less to do with diet, or even exercise, and more to do with the environment in which a person lives: social and physical. What do I mean by this? They live rewardingly inconvenient lives.
I have a slight addiction to Diet Coke, and, of course, I absolutely shouldn’t touch it because it makes the kidneys work really hard.

I don’t really have a strict diet. I tend to keep the junk food out, but I tend to follow my cravings as well. I love the chips, the hot wings, fries. I tend to eat it all, to be honest.
My experience as a school nurse taught me that we need to make a concerted effort, all of us, to increase physical fitness activity among our children and to encourage all Americans to adopt a healthier diet that includes fruits and vegetables, but there is more.

The most important factors for a long life, I think, are partly in the genes; number two is lifestyle, which includes healthy diet and regular exercise. I walk, run and swim every day.

The fact is, I diet every day of my life. I have to work at it. But I diet so I can pig out.
I see the most change in my body through exercise. They say diet determines your weight, and exercise determines your shape – I find that to be a pretty true statement.

We can reduce these cancer rates – breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer – by 90 percent or more by people adopting what I call a nutritrarian diet.
The vegan diet is obviously lacking whatever essential nutrient it is that makes people likeable.
I freak out if I go a little too long without being in the gym. For a long time it was all about getting the weight off because I was 240 pounds at my heaviest, and now I’m around 175, so the majority of that weight loss was due to diet and exercise.
And I believe that the best buy in public health today must be a combination of regular physical exercise and a healthy diet.

Nothing burns more calories than dancing in 5-inch heels… try it!
The dieting wars have got to stop.
Almost as soon as I went vegan, people started telling me that my skin looked great, and that I appeared younger, slimmer, and healthier. I’m convinced that of all the changes I’ve made to my lifestyle, it’s the adoption of a vegan diet that has been best for me – physically, mentally, and certainly spiritually.
Far too many times over the next 12 to 15 years, it was brought to my attention that people who followed my exercise guidelines exactly but ignored their diet, their weight and their cigarette smoking had heart attacks at age 55.

Fat is your friend. The brain thrives on a fat-rich, low-carbohydrate diet.

When working, my diet degrades to pizza three times a day, because I don’t want to distract myself from anything.
“At my heaviest, I was 5’8″” and 175 pounds. I ate well, but in too large quantities, and I rarely made a concerted effort to burn off the extra calories.

I am fussy, about my diet and straining my voice. I know, sounds a bit over the top. But I’m not as bad as I used to be. These days I don’t drink alcohol for five days before a show – very dehydrating for the vocal cords, and all that acid reflux. I used to ban it for a fortnight. Nightmare.
People have been fed this diet of pabulum, rights, and impulsive freedom. There’s just an absolute starvation for the other side of the story.
Look I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. You’re not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I’d be devastated.
Right now I’d love to be sitting on a Greek island somewhere because of being Greek American, eating great octopus salad and some fantastic lamb. Or sipping a little ouzo. I think the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest… Lots of nuts, vegetables, fruits, fresh fish, lean meats, yogurt.

How much obesity has to be created in a single decade for people to realize that diet has to be responsible for it?
Few men in their 70s looked as good as my father did. What was his secret? Genes, maybe, since he didn’t exercise or diet, and he kept a candy drawer, drank a pot of black coffee every day, and read in the middle of the night. Still, he took such joy in being a dad – and in life in general – and his happiness showed.
The diet for climbing all the time isn’t really different from the diet for living. It’s not like cardio sports where you’re burning a bajillion calories every day.

The unforgivable political sin is vanity; the killer diet is sour grapes.
When I go and work with people, I never say, ‘Your dog is changed for the rest of its life.’ It’s like a diet. You’ve got to maintain a discipline and ritual in your life to keep a certain figure.

The more colorful the food, the better. I try to add color to my diet, which means vegetables and fruits.
I can’t even count the number of times I’ve obliterated my diet with a binge session. One second, I’m floating along just fine, four days into a successful low-carb lifestyle. The next? I’m standing alone in a dark kitchen, eating a sleeve of Ritz crackers and cream cheese with a spoon.
You need a good, healthy diet – it’s about finding out what your body needs. Sugar is a disaster for skin, as is white flour.
I like having my hair and face done, but I’m not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy.
