70-Year-Old Woman Looks Like She Just Turned 40 Thanks to Vegan Diet and Rainwater

Just yesterday, we wrote about Dr. Life, the man with a 70-year-old’s face and a 20-year-old bodybuilder’s physique. Well, now in the news is another 70-year-old who seems to have found the secret to eternal youth, only hers doesn’t imply using growth hormones and testosterone. Annette Larkins doesn’t look a day over 40, thanks to the diet and lifestyle she maintains. She looks so young that people mistake her to be the daughter, when she’s out with her husband of 54 years, but I suppose he isn’t complaining.

Mrs. Larkins says the secret to her beauty lies in the raw vegan diet, consisting of organic vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts grown in her own garden, she calls the ‘fountain of youth’. The woman doesn’t touch anything that has been cooked. And another strange thing she does is collect rainwater, to keep her garden blossoming, but also to drink. But the resident of Miami-Dade County, Florida, didn’t always have such a healthy lifestyle. In fact, she consumed meat regularly, as her husband used to own a meat factory way back in the 1960s. It was then that she decided to change her eating habits forever. And what a great decision that was. I mean, just  look at her!

When she started off, Mrs. Larkins was just looking for a few health benefits and never anticipated that she would look like a 40-year-old at the age of 70. In the 27 years that she has been eating raw, Mrs. Larkins has written two booklets called Journey to Health and also produced a DVD containing all her healthy secrets. Her husband, Mr. Larkins, wishes he had followed her example, because  now he looks much, much older and also suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure. He takes prescription medicine every day, but Annette doesn’t even take an aspirin.

I do know a few people who consume a raw diet, myself, but don’t look as young as this woman. Perhaps she’s also got good genes, or there’s something miraculous in that rainwater she drinks?


Instead of buying all those over-advertised “beauty secrets”sold by cosmetic corporations, maybe we should just take a look at people like Annette Larkins for secrets to a longer, healthier lifestyle. Just my 2 cents…Oh wait, I forgot, we’re looking for quick, easy ways to improve our looks!

    I don’t doubt her lifestyle plays a huge part in her looks today, but I smell some BS in this story.

  • Bob Posted on March 8, 2012

    I don’t know dude, not one of those pictures shows her without makeup, and that hair could have extensions or be a wig.

  • john Posted on March 8, 2012

    well, i would look all young and junk too if i could afford regular spa treatments and plastic.

  • anonemouse Posted on March 8, 2012

    Nevertheless, she looks phenomenal for a woman of 70.

    Corralation does not equal casuality!

  • Dee Posted on March 12, 2012

    Wow! She looks fabulous for 70. Vegan diet does make you look younger as it does not contain all the toxins that make you ill.

  • Nik Posted on March 14, 2012

    That is definitely a wig, but I saw a news interview she did, and she said she has never had any plastic surgery. I’m thinking she has good genes because she only started this when she was 40 something, so the effects of bad diet would have taken it’s toll up until that point. Plus I’ve seen many vegans who look like their age.

    Definitely a correlation implies causation fallacy. I do agree with eating fresh non-processed foods as much as possible, but that is not the thrust of this article. Instead this article is making the implication that eating a vegan diet will cause a person to look youthful… and that is patently false. There are many factors such as genes, attitude, exposure to sun, etc. Thing is ask someone who suffers from the metabolic syndrome (Hypertension + Type II diabetes) like her husband what kind of diet they are allowed, and almost certainly they will tell you to avoid sugar (obviously), root vegetables like potatoes, grains, beans, and very limited fruit. In my case I went on essentially a paleo-keto diet consisting of fresh animal products and greens, and have lost 12 inches in the waist in a little over 4 months and admittedly do feel a whole lot better.

    What you have to remember is that just because she got these results does not mean everyone will. What is good for one person might kill another or cause some severe medical issues. Good for her, really, that’s fantastic, but let’s not all jump on this bandwagon. Even if you do get some benefits off this, it is highly unlikely that your results will be the same or as beneficial.

  • She Lies Posted on April 7, 2012

    Uhura, needs to get back and stop lying. No way is she 70 and her
    body looks like that.

  • no way Posted on April 19, 2012

    Wig, plastic, make-up, body foundations.. nope. I do not believe this woman is 70. If so, lets see some pictures of her throughout the years. Lets see her at age 35..since she didn’t start eating this way until her 40’s.

  • Katy Posted on April 20, 2012

    lol people have a hard time believing this? i think the top of her hair is real, the bottom half is fake. my mother is 60 years old and although she isnt as thin as this lady, she has NO wrinkles on her face. she has always taken care of her skin; i have more wrinkles than her. my mom has never had plastic surgery either, and never would. i think this is completely possible. my mom continues to make her hair black by using dye although her hair is graying. my mother also doesnt take any prescription medicine. but, i believe this lady. ive seen people like that in my life who take care of themselves….that is the key….that and good genetics.

    African American people have SPF 50 built into their skin, I think it was enen mentioned on an Oprah Show, Asians share a similar trait. Us white people tend to show more signs of aging. It does matter what you eat and what you use as well. I’m part Italian, German, Irish & French Canadian and unfortunately I have and will develop more wrinkles, BUT beauty is only skin deep….a person can look good but be ugly on the inside…..
