London, Feb 02 (ANI): American singer Tina Turner is getting better and better with age a phenomenon which she believes is down to a combination of great style, health and attitude.

A few tiny wrinkles there may be but the 69-year-old singers body weight has remained remarkably stable, at around eight-and-a-half stone.

Im an American size 10, which I think in the UK is 14 - that has remained constant,” the Mirror quoted her, as saying.

Tina puts her stable size down to not eating after 6pm, drinking lots of water and, of course, dancing.

She added: I dont abuse myself with sweets, sugars, cakes and fat. I eat healthily. The pleasure of life is dinner.”

I eat a breakfast of banana, kiwi and melon, and brown German bread. I only have two meals a day because I sleep for a very long time,” she added.

The legendary performer prefers eating a combination of Thai and Italian food most of the time - although she limits high-carb pasta to “twice a week only” and soon cuts back a bit if she feel the pounds creeping on.

Turners commitment to her work out regime also helps keep her body in shape.

With a home in Switzerland, she has become a devotee of saunas and steam rooms and “walking 10 miles up and down stairs at home”.

Once she begins strutting her stuff under the burning heat of the stage lights, the weight simply melts away.

The main reason Ive stayed looking good is that Ive spent 40 years doing the most intensive stage workouts ever,” she said. (ANI)
