How did Hugh Hefner do it?
“In many ways, I’m younger than I was 20 years ago.”
I think at one point in every man’s life he asks himself that very same question – geeez, I know I have at least a dozen times.
Even before the sudden popularity of Heff’s new reality show The Girls Next Door, the man known best for his silk pajamas had already set the standard in many men’s minds for what it truly means to live the good life.
In fact, the 85-year-old founder was spotted planking and in shape until the very end and was even engaged to a woman 60 years his junior
Most people would say Hef has been kept looking young by the flock of beautiful young women who constantly surround him.
But we think we have the real answer.
In a new interview with the Playoby Mansion’s executive chef William S. Bloxsom-Carter, Bloomberg finds out Hef’s daily diet.
“He enjoys lamb chops, and he has half a grapefruit every day,” says Carter. He likes fried chicken with mashed potatoes, which is his mother’s recipe. He’s a Midwestern gentleman, so he enjoys those kinds of foods. He has two piles of mashed potatoes with a poached egg placed in each one. Pretty wild stuff but it’s OK.”
A half a grapefruit every day? We think the nutrient-packed fruits are Hef’s secret to longevity.
So what do the Playboy bunnies eat?
“We try to make them healthy. It doesn’t always work out. They want the cheesecake with the strawberries on top but it’s a lot of fun and it’s a wonderful time for me and my staff.”
