Gosh, I live in Santa Barbara, only about an hour away from Malibu, and just as much on the beach. I sprint once a week. I lift. I play, which for me is hiking in the mountains. I even went mountain biking yesterday, if you can call a dirt road in the wilderness mountain biking and me whiteknuckling the brakes "play". I eat similar to Mark. I don't look like him. Not one bit. I don't look like his wife either. I think the main ingredient missing is the lack of a good plastic surgeon. Carrie even admits to getting microdermabrasion or something like that. You can google search for that. I live amongst enough arm-candy ladies to know that if they're doing one thing like that they're probably doing another. Even my sister gets a lot of work done and she's just a minivan mom. That's So Cal, that's life in the 'bu. And by the way, the addition or subtraction of starchy root vegetables has absolutely no effect on my body composition. I usually eat a half or a whole potato every day and often some other things like carrots or bananas. I lift, so the starch seems to help, but by no means is it miraculous in its effects. Beware the charlatans who ascribe miracle properties to certain food items. Just eat real food.
