Madonna's Secret to Staying Young Is Tastier Than Plastic Surgery

madonnaI'm sorry, say what you will about Madonna and plastic surgery and $86,000 worth of facials and blah blah blah, the woman is 53 years old. And did you SEE the Superbowl Halftime Show this year?

Point is: Madonna looks dang good for her age. Whatever she's doing is obviously working, so why wouldn't the rest of us do it too?

Because we don't have $86,000 to spend on facials, I know. But apparently the true secret to Madonna's glow is actually affordable ...

Are you ready for this? Madonna's fountain of youth is filled with ... probiotics! Ta-da!

See, Madge's personal chef just wrote a cookbook all about the special good bacteria-laden "alternative diet" he's been whipping up for his boss, and it's being credited with "aiding digestion, fending off disease, and generally improving health."

Whew! Between this and the news about yogurt making mice slimmer and sexier, you're probably ready to start mainlining the stuff. Shoot, why even bother with granola?

But here's something you might not know: Probiotics are in other foods besides yogurt. Just look for the magic word: "Fermented." Fermented soy products like miso and tempeh, sauerkraut, kimchee and Kombucha tea all contain good, healthy bacteria.

So there are plenty of ways to dose your diet with probiotics, none of which cost $86,000. Eternal youth is yours!

Do you eat foods with probiotics?

Yes, I did see this year's Super Bowl halftime show. Madonna sucked. She's a stiff old lady with a bloated and filled face.

She looks awful for 53! I know a lot of non famous women who look better. Madge has clearly had work done and it didn't do her any favors

Yes, the whole family eats probiotics, and digetive enzymes, and a lot of raw food.  Healthy healthy healthy!!

I cannot believe the crap that people have posted here. Any of you moms doing at 53 what Madonna is? Yeah, I didn't think so. And Madge's body takes WORK, not just sitting around in sweats reading the internet, waiting for the baby weight to miraculously disappear. None of you are even a quarter as fit as she it. And even if you are . . . where's YOUR 700 million dollars?
