    Susan Lucci switched to a healthier diet following the death of her husband

    The 77-year-old actress was married to ex ecutive chef Helmut Huber from 1966 until he died of a sudden stroke at the age of 82 in 2022 and has subsequently decided to avoid certain foods to lower her cholesterol after living on a "monopoly" diet whilst her husband was still alive


    She told Fox News: "It started with superfoods. A book about it came out, and my friend gave it to me. She was already eating that way and she looked great. And as I educated myself, I realised that's how I ate. ... I do have the occasional pasta and carbs. I love carbs. ... But the key is moderation. I try to avoid foods that are full of cholesterol. I love cheese, but I don't eat much of it, hardly ever. I love ice cream, but I moderate it.

    "It's all about moderation. For the most part, I avoid foods that can lead to cholesterol buildup.

    "My husband was an ex ecutive chef trained in Europe. I remember I would eat everything that he was cooking. It was like monopoly food. And I did build up cholesterol. ... It's not about being trendy. It's about being your best self."

    The 'All My Children' star is also keen to keep fit and while she doesn't want to "bulk up", still works out at least five days a week.

    She said: "I do Pilates every day," the star said. "The time depends on my schedule for the day and how early my day starts. But I get up early every day just to accommodate it. I do Pilates at least five days a week.

    "Sometimes, it's six days a week because it's good to come at your muscles differently. I sometimes add weights for part of it or work out on a Pilates chair, which gives you a cardio workout as well. But I sometimes add light weights. I don't want to bulk up. Everybody's different, but that's what works for me. I do 30 reps each."
