People are always looking for the secret to stay and look young. Some believe in a fountain of youth, others use Botox to maintain their features.
Hong Kong star Andy Lau (刘德华) may have just revealed the solution to remaining youthful. The 59-year-old has been in the entertainment industry for about 40 years, however, it seems the years haven’t quite caught up to him yet. What’s his secret? Eating healthy and in moderation!
Lau has been very active in his career. On top of performing and producing films, he has also managed to maintain a successful singing career at the same time. Fans have always praised his good looks, and even at 59, one must admit he doesn’t look his age. Lau recently took to Instagram, to share his secret; that is, his diet.
In a short video captioned, “Dining with Andy Lau”, the star showed what he usually eats during a meal. It’s a surprisingly simple meal of rice and vegetable dishes. The vegetable dishes were very colourful, which shows the entertainer has been balancing his nutritional needs. After showcasing his dishes, Lau happily started his meal. Although he seemed hungry, he did not gorge himself on the meal.
Lau also took care to stop when he had eaten half his food. The actor clearly wanted to avoid overeating as he started putting away the containers. Fans left comments praising his eating habits. “(Andy Lau) is a fairy, he eats so little. I envy your control over your appetite,” one netizen commented. Others praised the actor for eating only vegetable dishes, saying “Good nutrition.” One person even commented, “No wonder he will not grow old.”
The superstar has been maintaining his lush black hair since his debut and has also showed off his six pack abs during concerts. Although Lau is definitely getting on in years, his youthful look is being maintained with the help of his self discipline. It’s no wonder his fans still love and admire him.
If you’re interested in looking after your appearance, you can give Lau’s diet a go. However, if you baulk at eating only veggies, maybe just try maintaining a nutritious diet instead.
