Ever wonder how the top names in entertainment keep thin? Recently British musical royalty, Mick Jagger, the energic frontman of The Rolling Stones entertained many during the group’s BST Hyde Park concert event. However, many concertgoers were simply in awe over Jagger’s stamina levels and overall fitness.
According to the UK-based outlet, The Express there are many reasons for Jagger being able to keep up with The Rolling Stones’ lengthy concert sets even as he approaches eighty years old. The first reason is that Jagger eats a diet of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, chicken, and fish. The ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’ singer has also reportedly tried the Keto diet which is a very high fat, low carbohdeodate approach to dieting.
What’s more, the dressing room coordinator for The Rolling Stones, Heather Foster Kjollesdal would touch on the ‘serious training’ that Jagger would do before performing to truly drive the point home.
“Before the tour, he’ll do serious training for four or five minutes, and then he’ll bring his heart rate down. So it’s very much interval training.”
She added: “That’s why he can sing a song, run across the stage, and then the song ends and he’s talking to the crowd and he’s not out of breath. He’s absolutely incredible.”
While many consider The Rolling Stones to be ‘The Greatest Band in the World”, don’t tell Mick Jagger that as in a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone he stated his reasoning for why he is not too fond for the title. Credit to Far Out Magazine for the following.
“It’s just a stupid epithet. It just seems too Barnum and Bailey to me – like it’s some sort of circus act,” he said.
He added: “The first time we heard it said was to introduce us every night. So I used to say, ‘Will you please not use that as your announcement? It’s so embarrassing. And what does that mean? Does it mean the best, the biggest, the most long-lasting.’”
