113 Year Old Man Reveals His Secret 5 Foods He Eats For Longevity (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


(N.Morgan) Bernando LaPallo resides in  Arizona and celebrated his 113 birthday in 2014.

He was born in Brazil in 1901 and even more interesting is the fact that he isn’t the first centenarian in his family.

As young man he followed his father’s advice on how to lead a healthy lifestyle and has stuck to it all of his life.

His interest was so strong in healthy nutrition that he even studied culinary arts at the Sorbonne University in Paris.

This may also have been inspired by his father, who was a doctor and a herbalist, who set Bernando’s feet on the path of a healthy lifestyle at an early age.

Mr. LaPallo is positive that his longevity is mainly due to the healthy lifestyle he leads and not to genetics.

Even at his age, he is still takes care of himself.

His daily routines include regular walks, doing a lot of crosswords and reading, all of which help to promote his mental agility too aside from his stamina.

He also has good writing skills. If you met him in person, you would be amazed at how alert he is.

Bernando LaPallo’s dietary regimen includes lots of organic vegetables and fruits, salmon, but excludes processed foods and red meats.

According to him, the following 5 foods are the reason for his good health and vitality.

1# Garlic

Alicin, the active ingredient in garlic, has numerous medicinal properties. Owing to allicin, garlic can reduce high cholesterol, as well as high blood pressure. Garlic can also prevent atherosclerosis, the root cause of heart disease. Eating raw garlic gives you most health benefits.

2# Cinnamon

Produced in Sri Lanka, Ceylon cinnamon is widely treasured for its medicinal uses. This spice reduces cholesterol and blood sugar, fights yeast infections and inflammation and improves digestion.

3# Honey

One of the top super foods on the planet, raw honey can maintain alkalinity in your body. This amazing natural sweetener is also a storehouse of antioxidants.

4# Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate, especially the one with cocoa content of 70% or more, can be extremely health beneficial if consumed moderately. Just like honey, dark chocolate packs a lot of antioxidants, reduces blood pressure and stress, and maintains your heart health.

5# Olive oil

Abundant in monounsaturated fats, olive oil is particularly effective in reducing cholesterol, controlling blood sugar levels and lowering the risk of heart disease. Extra virgin olive oil provides most health benefits.

In the video below Mr.LaPallo discusses his healthy diet and how it has positively impacted his day to day life and health.

      But it’s funny how they all leave out the doughnut. But Charlie won’t! He will continue to recommend and tell the whole world about the doughnut.

      Without doughnuts no one can be happy. Have you ever seen anyone unhappy eating a doughnut?

      Who wants to live to be 113 years old? Not me! I’m ready to go whenever The Lord wants to take me! That’s because I have searched out the truth for myself and I found it in the King James Version of the Holy Bible (all other versions are corrupted) by reading the writings of Paul the Apostle. I learned the Gospel and that it is TRUTH (see 1 Corinthians 15:1-7) I studied HARD to find the truth and when I did find Him, I praised Him for saving me and I was thankful and repented of my sins. Most don’t even know they are sinners in need of a Savior because they have believed what the world or what friends and family or teachers or even some pastors (if you watch TV, there is a preacher who says that you can have your “best life now”; Think about that! He’s asking you to forget about God and eternal life!) say; that the bible is an outdated tome of fairy tales. Challenge them on that! Read it for yourself. (you know in your heart that you have never sought to truly understand God’s plan for your life)

      I challenge anyone who reads this to get a King James Bible and begin to read and learn about Jesus Christ and how His death, burial and resurrection has paid the sin debt of any and every person who will ASK for their sins to be removed. Begin reading in the book of Romans asking God to help you understand for the bible is spiritually discerned. Ask God to reveal the ugliness of your sins to you and the desperate need you have of a Savior.

      If you are sincere, you will be saved; born again; you will want to be with God and depart this wicked world. You will find that the things you once loved are strangely unimportant to you because GOD is ALL important to you and Jesus Christ is your constant companion. Do this TODAY and don’t put it off because the time is almost here when He will take all those who have trusted in Him out of the earth in order to pour out His Wrath. (see Isiah 24) You don’t want to be here for that and you don’t have much time left so get busy!

      One of the oldest women in the world a while back said she smoked blunts every day and drank a tall glass of homemade moonshine, she was around 120 I believe, and she claimed that’s what kept her alive.

      I’m going with her idea.

        1000 years from now, 5000 years from now 10,000 years from now a 2 year old life or a 120 year old life means NOTHING. Its the after-death that matters.
