Sporting the figure of a woman half her age, 71-year-old grandmother Carolyn Hartz’s medical journey led her to living a healthier lifestyle – and the effects on her youthful figure are amazing.
After being diagnosed with prediabetes, Carolyn decided to cut out sugar completely from her diet. Soon afterwards she discovered the natural, artificial sweetener xylitol and founded her own company SweetLife which specializes in sugar free products. Since then Carolyn has never looked back on eliminating sugar from her diet.
"Calm the mind, calm the body through meditation".💙 I include meditation in my daily routine in the morning and it makes me feel calmer and intuitive. A great way to start the day. Our blog writer Stacey Rogers, a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist, looks at the benefits of meditation and how to achieve a meditative state.

Along with cutting out sugar, Carolyn also practices mindfullness and meditation and is a huge proponent of getting outside to exercise, rather than hitting a gym. Carolyn prefers to get outdoors and walk, bike, or do yoga.
The busy grandma also knows the importance of protecting her skin from the sun damage. Living in Australia, the effects of the sun can cause premature aging, so Carolyn always makes sure to protect her skin by using sunscreen and wearing a hat.
