Nearing her 50s, Yancy Butler maintains her healthy figure by choosing the right kinds of food. For starters, she no longer eats anything processed, at least most of the time she doesn’t. She constantly watches what she eats by focusing on lean proteins, whole grains, as well as fruits and veggies. She’s since learned how to cut down on sugary, salty, and oily foods. Instead, she typically eats clean, whole foods — not only to maintain a slender body but to also improve her overall well-being.
