At 73, Raquel Welch just may have found a way to turn back time. She recently flaunted her still-fabulous curves at an event presented by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, reported the Huffington Post. So how does she stay so sleek? Get the skinny here.

Raquel shared her slim secrets in her autobiography: "Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage" (click for details). And she made it clear that she's a believer in a strict diet.

"I would never encourage you to be casual about following your personalized eating plan," Raquel writes. "I highly recommend these principles to any woman over forty, which is when I adopted this way of eating."

Among her diet tips, which she also revealed to iFit & Healthy:

  • Limit carbohydrates, especially starchy ones.
  • Avoid wheat.
  • Use the secrets of food combining. Don't eat fruit and protein in the same meal. This principle eases digestion, according to believers of this process.

But it's not just diet. Raquel also believes in staying firm with fitness. She's even created her own exercise programs for her fans, such as "Raquel: Lose 10 Pounds in 3 Weeks" (click for details).
