Yeah, the difference is huge. Like I said, it's unfair, I don't know what external (internal) factors there are, but I know who I'd rather be more like when I'm 51. Also, I have the most ridiculously huge crush on Nigella.
I love Nigella but have Gillian's book. I know that Nigella grew up in a well to do family while Gillian was very very unhealthy in her native Scotland until her mid-20s. That's when she found her new lifestyle through a seminar in the US.
I don't know. Gillian may look worse, but she looks like a typical 51 yr old. Perhaps a bit more weathered than the usual. Nigella has a bit of that plastic surgery/botox look to her. Maybe it's just the makeup, lighting, and photo retouching. Hands down, she looks great, but nothing I would realistically aim for when I'm 51.
I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.
