So Diet Intake of an 115 year old

Friday, September 11, 2009


LOS ANGELES Although she liked her bacon crispy and her chicken fried, she never drank, smoked or fooled around, Gertrude Baines once said, describing a life that lasted an astonishing 115 years and earned her the title of oldest person on the planet.

It was a title Baines quietly relinquished Friday when she died in her sleep at Western Convalescent Hospital, her home since she gave up living alone at age 107 after breaking a hip.

She likely suffered a heart attack, said her longtime physician, Dr. Charles Witt, although an autopsy was scheduled to determine the exact cause of death.

"I saw her two days ago, and she was just doing fine," Witt told The Associated Press on Friday. "She was in excellent shape. She was mentally alert. She smiled frequently."

Baines was born in Shellman, Ga., on April 6, 1894, when Grover Cleveland was in the White House, radio communication was just being developed and television was still more than a half-century from becoming a ubiquitous household presence.

She was 4 years old when the Spanish-American War broke out and 9 when the first World Series was played. She had already reached middle age by the time the U.S. entered World War II in 1941.

Throughout it all, Baines said last year, it was a life she thoroughly enjoyed.

"I'm glad I'm here. I don't care if I live a hundred more," she said with a hearty laugh after casting her vote for Barack Obama for president. "I enjoy nothing but eating and sleeping."

The centenarian, who worked as a maid at Ohio State University dormitories until her retirement, had outlived all of her family members. Her only daughter died of typhoid at age 18.

In her final years, she passed her days watching her favorite TV program, "The Jerry Springer Show," and consuming her favorite foods: bacon, fried chicken and ice cream. She complained often, however, that the bacon served to her was too soft.

So we can only do what we can while we have the time. So let's get it poppin people!

    Wow! Thanks for sharing. I didn't know. I live in Columbus, Ohio where OSU is. We have a wonderful 101 Year old Patient. He still pulls his Lawn mower out of his basement & cuts his own grass. He only started having aches when he was 100. Sheesh, wish I could say the same. Sounds like she was a wonderful person. Like you :)

    My great grandmom lived to be 103. She loved fried food but was very active and she loved to travel. When she was 100 she would sneak out of her son's home most mornings(he was caring for her) to go for a walk and enjoy nature. This lasted for a whole year before he found out one morning when she knocked over a trashcan in the back yard. LOL She was an amazing lady. emoticon

    Love it. My version is " I didn't mess myself up overnight, I am not going to fix it that fast either" Say it to myself almost everyday. Especially today, after pizza, bagels, ice cream, etc... But was so much fun and worth it.

    I love my junk food. My kryptonite is Chunky Chips Ahoy and milk. I don't anything to hide because by the time anyone knows I would have already eaten them emoticon

However, I only buy them occasionally. Lately, I've been eating the Snickers Marathon Protein Bars - Caramel Nut Rush. Tastes just like a Snickers and I get 20g of protein.

Yum.

    Good for you celebrating the fun junk food!

I do dessert everyday, once a day. Sometimes for breakfast! LOL. Has helped me stay on track for everything else, and I keep it in the calorie range for the day even with it.
