Singer, Michael Bolton is looking pretty good at age 60, and it must be related to his vegetarian diet, which he adopted 42 years ago.

In an interview with DailyMail, Bolton was asked if he got his 5 servings of fruits and veggies every day. Bolton replied, “I’ve been a vegetarian for 42 years, so yes. I used to love meat, especially double cheeseburgers, but decided I didn’t want to ingest saturated fat or the hormones used in cows. I love pasta, pizza and ice-cream, but too much sweet dairy induces catarrh and affects my voice.”

DailyMail may have been seeking a more scandalous reply to their question of “Pop any pills?” to the singer. Bolton’s response was, “I take vitamin C daily, which helps with jet lag, and I travel with 100 percent vegetarian multi-vitamins in case I feel run down. I have regular medicals – once, I was low on iron and another time in B12. I adjusted my diet, took vitamins and that never happened again.”

Check out the rest of Bolton’s interview where he talks about his love of sports and his focus on personal health.
