Ringo Starr stays young with broccoli

In an interview, Starr revealed he went vegetarian after attending a bullfight in Spain. Since then, the musician has been admired for his graceful aging. Former drummer for The Beatles, Ringo Starr, recently revealed the secret to “staying young” and maintaining high energy levels. Speaking to music and pop culture magazine Rolling Stone, Starr commended his vegetarian diet for helping him stay “so young and active.”  Starr says, “I am a vegetarian, I have broccoli with everything and blueberries every morning. I just do stuff that I feel is good for me.”

The musician, who is 80 years old, spoke about how he keeps up with his busy life, including the launch of his new coffee table photo book “Another Day in the Life,” and an upcoming tour with the All Starr Band, when the virus lifts.  The All Starr Band is 31 years old and still going strong as is fellow Beatle, Paul McCartney, also a vegetarian.

“You’re a busy man these days,” Rolling Stone interviewer Rob Sheffield said to Starr. He asked the rock star how he maintains the lifestyle. “I think staying active keeps you young,” Starr said, adding that he works out with a trainer. But diet also plays a role; the drummer highlighted that he follows a vegetarian diet and includes broccoli “with every meal.” Many have pointed out that he looks even younger than his son. Keep up the good work, Ringo!
