Susan Lucci, the 76-year-old actress known for her role on “All My Children,” is making headlines for her stunning physique and dedication to heart health.
Lucci recently posted a photo on Instagram promoting the “Empower Your Heart” necklace she designed to benefit the American Heart Association. In the photo, Lucci can be seen wearing a stylish red shorts suit that shows off her toned legs.
Lucci has been open about her experience with heart disease and the importance of women paying attention to their heart health. In 2018, she discovered she had blockages in her main artery and a branch artery, despite exercising regularly and following a Mediterranean diet.
Lucci’s fitness routine includes Pilates on her Pilates Pro Chair, with 10 pull-ups a day for 30 to 100 reps each. She exercises six days a week, usually first thing in the morning.
Lucci said she craves exercise and feels good knowing she has done something positive for herself each day. Lucci also pays close attention to her diet, focusing on fuel that she can run on.
For breakfast, she enjoys Greek yogurt with organic pumpkin seeds and lingonberries, and for lunch, she opts for a grilled turkey and avocado sandwich with beefsteak tomatoes.
Lucci’s dinners with her late husband included light salads, salmon, broccoli, and steamed carrots, with champagne as a special treat. She even endorsed Barilla pastina, suggesting it as a tasty addition to chicken soup or paired with vegetables.
In addition to her fitness and diet routines, Lucci is making an impact by promoting heart health and encouraging women to prioritize their health. Her “Empower Your Heart” necklace is just one way she is working to raise awareness and support the cause.
