A STRENGTH-training 51-year-old has shown how beauty can come with age and a healthy lifestyle.
Social media user Annamaria Kalebic posted a video earlier this year revealing how she feels she is much more attractive in her 50s compared to her at 40.
“I lost my groove in my 40s, but thankfully I found it again in my 50s,” said Kalebic.
In the photos she shared of her at 50, her skin is glowing and looks much smoother compared to the selfies of her at 40.
Her face is now also much thinner and her hair is fuller.
“Good nutrition, strength training, and taking good care of myself are just some of the changes I’ve made which have given me my confidence back,” she said.
“I feel healthier and more beautiful than ever.”
On her Instagram, she shares her healthy glow-up tips with her followers, crediting healthy eating, workouts, and prioritizing her gut health as her age rewind secrets.
“I count plants not calories,” she said.
“It’s the reason why I feel fitter now in my 50s than I did in my 20s.”
Though she credits her healthy lifestyle to her stunning glow-up, many viewers claim she’s faking it.
“Makeup and good lighting,” said one user.
“A filter by the look of it,” another said.
However, Kalebic remains confident and truly believes that 50 is the new 20.
She captioned a recent Instagram post of herself smiling: “If living it up at 51 means I’m growing old disgracefully, I’m down for that!
“I’m having the time of my life, getting fitter, learning new skills, dancing at every opportunity, not worrying about what others think, for me 50 is the new 20 but better!”
And before taking part in a fitness photoshoot earlier this year, Kalebic admitted she trained up to four times a week, increased her protein intake, slept more, was hydrated, and kept a positive mindset.
In regards to the “perks” of being over 50, Kalebic explained in another video: that she is living her best life at age 51.
She explained: “I was so worried about growing older but now I see it as a beautiful gift! I’m taking care of my nutrition, making sure I exercise (strength training mainly) and looking after my mindset.”
“As a result, I’ve had an easy ride when it comes to menopause,” she continued.
“Feeling grateful to be sharing my healthy aging tips on this amazing platform. Thank you @tiktok and the incredible community here, I’m having a blast! “
