Before Chris Carmichael started advising Lance Armstrong or we had the Scarsdale or South Beach diets, people watched Jack LaLanne on TV to learn about diet and exercise.

Here's what the 93-year-old is saying now:

“Exercise is king. Nutrition is queen. Together, you’ve got a kingdom. If you have a Corvette, you don’t put water in the tank. The human machine deserves the same treatment. No cake, pies, ice cream, soda. Your hair is out of shape. Your skin is terrible. Your elimination is bad. The wrong fuel in the human machine does that. …

“Would you give your dog a cup of coffee and a doughnut?”

The Orange County Register says LaLanne's exercise show was televised for 34 years. Now he's coming to Internet radio at 9 a.m. Mondays at www.modavox.com/boombox_va/lalanne.asp.

LaLanne says he works out 2 hours a day, 7 days a week. Ninety minutes in the weightroom and 30 minutes in the pool. After 30 days, he changes the routine.

He's got a website, the Official Jack LaLanne website.
