Sports Illustrated model Carol Alt, 60, reveals her secrets to staying fit

Carol Alt turned 60 on Tuesday and revealed her secrets to staying fit throughout her life.

The former Sports Illustrated model confessed to the Daily Mail “it’s all about what you eat” and that she has stayed “away from chemicals and GMOs and feed my brain good fats.”

Alt revealed she’s never fallen for trendy diets like “low fat or no fat diets”  because when people “take the fat out, they add sugar.”

Instead, the cookbook author believes in eating natural fats such as olive oil and avocados.

“Did you know you can drink a ton of water but still feel dehydrated because you are not eating enough good fats?” she pointed out. “It is important to include fat in your diet, and it will show on your skin, hair, nails.”

Alt said her goal is to remain strong as she ages so she can maintain an active lifestyle and keep working in front of the camera. 

“When I started eating better my body and my skin started looking better. I was incredible,” she described. “I work hard to look good because I love acting, I want to keep doing it, it is my goal, so that is my priority.”

Although Alt loves to break a sweat, she prefers to keep her workouts simple and fast. 

“You need to do a little every day, but don’t kill yourself,” the actress advised. “You can’t push yourself too hard or else you will get sore and not want to do it again the next day. So do a little every day.”

Alt loves doing exercises for one minute because she feels it’s “better to do one minute of challenging lunges that 10 minutes of sloppy ones.”

Earlier this year, Alt participated in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Icon Challenge, which involves followers recreating their favorite SI Swimsuit photos. Alt’s submission was a replica of Marisa Miller’s 2008 cover in which she posed on a beach in St. John, one of the U.S. British Islands.

Alt graced the cover of the swimsuit magazine in 1982.

We at Insider Retail have been lamenting the “death” of Black Friday for years now. But the pandemic could make things even worse. Social distancing rules and in-store capacity limitations will certainly take their toll on the customer turnout for the shopping event. Many retailers also opted to start sales as early as October this year to combat the emergence of large crowds.

Beyond black Friday, a lot more has happened in the retail world this week! So, if you haven’t already subscribed, click here to get our weekly roundup of everything you need to know in the world of retail and restaurants written by me, Shoshy Ciment, and my colleague, Bethany Biron.

Now, onto the news of the week!

The current and former Black McDonald’s franchisees that have filed two lawsuits against the fast-food giant have a new lawyer on their legal team: Daryl Parks.

The civil right attorney has a record of serving as counsel in high-profile racial justice cases. He previously represented the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

“The case against McDonald’s is historic, and it is a privilege to be representing the Black men and women who were – and continue to be – treated like second-class citizens by the company,” Parks said in a statement. McDonald’s has denied allegations of racial discrimination.

ABG told Business Insider it is trying to balance keeping traditionalist fans happy while expanding into new categories.

“Our vision is, how do we take arguably the most famous sports brand that’s meant a lot to a lot of people, and create a 21st-century media brand,” Marc Rosen, the executive vice president for ABG’s business unit, told Business Insider in an interview. “It’s about being in a lot of places and being a lot of things to your customers.”
