Author often mistaken for being almost two decades younger

Age-defying influencer looks two decades younger thanks to a ‘clean-living’ lifestyle without any processed food or alcohol – so, how old do YOU think he is?

  • Edson Brandao has been mistaken for being two decades younger than his age
  • The 53-year-old from Groningen, The Netherlands, has never had plastic surgery
  • Said his ageless appearance is the result of avoiding sugar and not taking drugs

A man who has been blessed with youthful good looks has revealed he is often mistaken for a man two decades younger.

Edson Brandao, 53, is an influencer, personal coach and writer who lives in Groningen, the Netherlands, and says a clean-living lifestyle keeps him looking young.

Having always been a confident man, Edson said he now has more energy than ever before in his life and it’s all thanks to his positive mindset, exercising every day, good nutrition and skin care. 

The 53-year-old who has never had plastic surgery, describes his body as a temple and says his youthful good looks are the result of avoiding sugar, processed and fried foods, never smoking or touching drugs, and only drinking mineral water – of which he drinks two litres of a day.

Edson (pictured) said his ageless appearance is the result of eating natural foods, drinking lots of water and using anti-ageing creams 

A positive mindset is Edson’s secret weapon to radiating youth and he hopes that by sharing his secrets, he will be able to inspire others to change their lifestyle.

Edson said: ‘I have never had plastic surgery in my life.

‘I managed to achieve my goals in a natural way with biologic food, fruit, vegetables, and drinking a lot of water. I use daily anti-ageing creams for my skin as well to keep the young appearance.

‘I see my body as a temple where my soul is living. Therefore, I take care of this precious gift from God.

‘There is no difference between how I feel now compared to in my twenties, I feel that I have the same energy as before. To be honest, I feel better than ever before.

‘People are always in shock when they find out I am 53. They all think I am 25.

‘It is fantastic to see how people are overwhelmed by my young appearance and that I can inspire them to change their lifestyle if they want.

‘I eat everything in a moderate way. I avoid eating sugar, industrialised food, snacks, and fried products. I never drink soft drinks because that is unhealthy. Last but not least, I have never smoked or used drugs in my life.

‘I do weight lifting and cardio every day to keep in good shape.

Edson (pictured, when he was aged 26) said positive thinking give you the motivation needed to pursue a healthy lifestyle that keeps you younger 

‘The power of positive thinking radiates a good energy for your body and mind. I believe that gives you motivation to continue with a healthy lifestyle and keeps you younger.’

Whilst Edson works out seven days a week to maintain his 10st 3lb physique, a typical day of food for him consists of a fresh fruit smoothie, almond milk and cereal and homemade vegan pancakes for breakfast, grilled white fish or chicken with vegetables and brown rice for lunch, and salmon with mushroom, tomatoes and brown rice or sweet potato for dinner.

Edson tells his story on his Instagram page, @edsonsecrets, and has written a book, Young After 40, where he reveals his secrets to staying young and happy.

‘I am the evidence that a human-being can stay and feel young even as you get older.

‘The first step [to maintaining a youthful appearance] is to accept and love yourself. You are okay as you are.

‘Then, create a daily routine of skin care, exercises, to eat and drink healthy, always look on the bright side of life and count your blessings.’
