What You Should Eat If You Want To Live To 100 (Based On The People Who've Done It)

Susannah Mushatt Jones, 1899-present.

That’s no clerical error: Alabama-born Jones had been living and breathing on this hunk of floating rock we call earth for three different centuries before dying late last year, a feat we’ll allow you to process for a second...THREE CENTURIES, we know!

Having given Highlander a run for his money (though there can't 'only be one' as Jones is one of two living people who were alive in the 1800s) this wise woman named the diet she attributes to her long life: a breakfast of several strips of bacon, scrambled eggs, and ground corn, every day.

And now following the death of the world's oldest man, 112 year old Japanese native Yasutaro Koide, who claimed he lived so long because he didn't eat, drink or smoke, here are the alternative diet plans of the world’s oldest folk.
