The French President’s wife may have come under scrutiny for her age in the past the grandmother of seven undeniably has a body and looks to die for.
While many would presume Brigitte undergoes a strict diet of green juices, salads, superfoods and expensive facials, it turns out her age-defying secret is a simple one.
According to Guillaume Gomez, head chef at the Elysee Palace, Brigitte makes sure she eats ten kinds of fruit and vegetables every day and doesn’t deprive herself of wine and cheese when she wants it.
In an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Guillaume said the Macrons are surprisingly traditional when it comes to food.
While they can request anything they want, it’s proper French country cooking, using produce from less than 100km from Paris and herbs from the palace gardens, they seem to fancy.
Guillaume said: “We adapt to percentile tastes.”
He revealed wine and cheese is back on the menu after former President Nicolas Sarkozy took them off.
And the only request from Brigitte is the ten fruits and vegetables a day and “no junk food”.
US President Donald Trump’s wife Melania Trump is also renowned for her young looks.
According to an extensive interview with Melania published by GQ in August last year, the First Lady wears ankle weights everyday.
This can be a good way to burn calories with minimal effort, experts claim.
The American Council on Exercise suggests people who wear light weights burn five to 15 per cent more calories, which explains Melania’s slim physique.
The First Lady is also said to be a fan of pilates and tennis, according to E News.
Melania Trump claims she does not diet, although those who have known the First Lady insist she eats very carefully.
Melania told Refinery29 in 2012 that she loves breakfast smoothies, and said: “It’s not a diet, I just like to eat healthy because I feel better and have more energy.”
However, she is partial to a little indulgence, adding: “I don’t have a particular snack I always eat. If I would snack, I would snack on maybe fruit or a little bit of chocolate, because I think your body needs that, too.”
Her former roommate, Matthew Atanian, a photographer, told GQ that when he lived with the First Lady, long before her marriage to Donald Trump, she ate seven pieces of fruit every.
