ood news, everyone! It turns out that the secret to longevity might actually lie in spicy hot pot, cake, alcohol, and soft drinks.
Recently, a 98-year-old woman from Chengdu has become an internet star in China for her seemingly less than healthy diet. In videos uploaded to social media by her granddaughter, the granny is seen chowing down on everything from burgers to traditional Sichuan hot pot with a bit of extra chili powder on the side in case the broth isn’t spicy enough for her tastes.
Rather than tea, she prefers downing shots of alcohol and slurping on soda. Whenever her granddaughter tries to caution her into more healthy habits, the elderly woman waves off, insisting that she’s old enough to eat and drink whatever she wants.
Over the past week, videos starring this “98-year-old foodie granny” have gone viral on the Chinese internet with netizens declaring that the old woman has set an example for them to follow. “I must eat more hot pot and drink more alcohol so I can live to be as old as her,” writes one Weibo user.
