She Eats A Healthy Breakfast

Holden always starts her day off with a healthy meal. She tells Woman that breakfast is one of the meals that is consistently healthy. "Sometimes lunch goes out of the window, so I like to have something wholesome for breakfast. I tend to start the day with a bowl of sugar-free Alpen."


She Works Out With Her Family

Holden didn't let the pandemic stop her from working out. She says that she does a lot of workouts with her family. "As a family, we've not let this lockdown stop us from exercising," she said on Instagram. "It's actually become an essential hour of our daily lives. Whether it's a home workout, a bike ride, a run or even a walk around the park – working up a sweat is good for your mind, body and soul."


She Does Yoga

Holden tells Express that she likes to practice yoga. She says that she likes one pose in particular. "There's one exercise called the Breath of Fire, which is great for abs. But it's also a good pick-me-up when you're tired – honestly, it's better than a cup of coffee! My body got strong and any excess fat disappeared. It's definitely made my tummy flatter."


She Drinks Coconut Water


Holden has amazing skin, and many people want her secrets. She spilled one of them to the DailyMail. "I drink loads of water – a lot of coconut water," she says. However, Holden also says that genetics helps her out. "But I think my skin is genetic because my nan looks amazing at 97."


She Doesn't Diet

Holden tells the DailyMail that she doesn't believe in diets or restrictions. "I eat everything, I drink everything. I had a friend once who didn't make it to her 50s and her biggest regret was that she spent her life on a diet. I don't diet." "Healthy eating takes on a new, potentially dangerous meaning when it deprives young brains and bodies of needed fuel or energy. Food fads — such as fat-avoidant, protein-but-no-carbs, and other trends — can actually be unhealthy for the developing brain," says the Cleveland Clinic.
