Priscilla presley works out three days a week, does yoga and I keeps her weight down because she feels better that way.
She explained: ‘I’m not searching for perfection and I’m comfortable with myself.
‘I work out three days a week, do yoga and I keep my weight down because I feel better that way.
‘I do facials and make sure my hair’s done, but I’m in Hollywood where it’s a case of constant maintenance, so I do what I need to do to get work.’
“As I have stated before, I’m in very good health, I’m not dying and I still have my memory,” the 74-year-old wrote on her Facebook on Friday, February 14. “Don’t put me under yet … I have to much to do in this lifetime. Where these crazy articles come from is beyond me.”
- Priscilla had a normal, healthy appetite and normal, healthy weight. She kept active with and without Elvis around, so I don’t believe she ever went on any diet plan. During her pregnancy, though, she did mention watching her weight. An excerpt from her book reads:
As far as I was concerned, the less people mentioned about my looking pregnant, the better. I intended to prove that a woman did not have to get fat. I wanted to refute Elvis’ claim that “women use the excuse of their pregnancy to let themselves go.” Although the doctor said that a twenty-five-pound gain would be fine, I immediately dropped from my normal one hundred ten pounds to one hundred. During the next four months, I regained just five pounds, and only nine more by the time of delivery. Eating one meal a day and snacking on apples and hard-boiled eggs, I prided myself on never needing to buy a maternity outfit. My doctor advised that in addition to taking multiple vitamins I should consume plenty of dairy products. Being vain, I amended my doctor’s instructions and lessened my intake of dairy products. I did not want to gain weight and get stretch marks. As a further precaution I resolved to slather myself with cocoa butter for the next eight months.
