Man who claims he is 50 years old shares secrets to his youthful looks

A TikToker has claimed that his secret to youthful looks lies in his diet.

Yep, forget those anti-aging creams that only seem to reduce your bank balance more than your fine lines because Shane Sterling has shared his secret:


And, seriously from looking at the lad, we might have to give this one a go.


Shane starts by gazing into his camera and claims he is 50 years old.

And meanwhile, we have three shots of tequila and wake up the next day looking double the age it says on our provisional licence.

However, Shane hints that his diet might be the thing responsible for his seemingly ageless face.

As he captioned the video: "Mostly plant-based 33 years, Vegan 18 years, Raw vegan 5 years."


Yep, you can see where this is going, as Shane reveals he hasn't 'eaten any cooked food in 5 years!'

And if, like us, you're thinking wondering what that includes, we'll give you a rundown.

Turns out that Shane is a raw vegan, which is exactly what it sounds like, with the TikToker explaining: "I stopped eating meat, bread, eggs, oats, potatoes, seed oil, sugar, dairy, grains."


This is the part where we joke and ask what is he even eating, but in actuality, there's a lot you can eat; it's mainly all veggies and fruit you like.

And according to Shane, 'it made me look and feel so much better'.

But, naturally, some users were feeling a little 'raw' about the whole thing, with one user saying: "Okay that will not work for everyone."

To which Shane replied: "Yes it will. We are all biologically identical. But it will not work only because of psychological reasons."

Another said that there was a different diet that had better results: "People live longest on a Mediterranean diet. We’ve known this for many many years."

But, again, Shane wasn't having it: "Incorrect. look up longest living cultures diet. 95-99% vegan, Hunza tribe is mostly raw fruit based."

However, one person was down with it, writing: "Help. How do you get started."


Either way, we will, very much, be eating cooked food for our dinner tonight and no one can stop us.

Others shared their secret to the fountain of youth, with one user joking: "I'm 143 and have eaten only McDonald's for the past 62 years."

If cutting out pretty much everything from your diet aside from raw fruit and veg sounds like a price worth paying to look younger than your years, you'll have to give Shane's regime a whirl.
