Sandra Bullock’s Diet
Well into her fifties, Bullock is the picture of graceful aging, and a clean diet is no small part of her healthy glow. While she didn’t always have the healthiest habits (think Diet Coke and pizza), she is now all about clean eating and portion control. She goes heavy on the veggies and also subscribes to food delivery service to save time. In the past, she has followed The Zone diet which promotes eating foods that keep blood sugar stable, but these days, she just chooses foods that she likes and are healthy. Bullock isn’t a saint, however, and allows herself to indulge 1 day a week. She stays hydrated with plenty of water.

calcium and vitamin D
As a woman of a certain age, adding calcium and vitamin D would be a smart idea to keep bones strong, as well as to improve immunity and mood.
As we age, the body makes less of antioxidant coenzyme Q10 which can result in less energy.
To promote collagen production and keep your immune system strong, you can’t go wrong with vitamin C.
Evening primrose oil
