Sting attributed his amazing shape to his macrobiotic diet, which consists of lots of vegetables and grains, and aims to avoid toxins and processed foods containing preservatives.
The diet also revolves around a low intake of meat, dairy products and sugar.
Sting and his wife Trudie Styler moved their family to Lake House Farm in Wiltshire in 1991 and have adopted a self-sufficient diet, growing organic vegetables ever since.
The singer’s family has a flock of free-range chickens, as well as their own trout lake and even beehives for honey.
In her 1999 book, The Lake House Cookbook, Styler wrote, “I decided that I would only be satisfied if I knew exactly what we were putting on our plates.”
She also revealed that the couple value a mindful approach to food and believe how “we treat our own bodies is by extension how we treat the planet”.
The singer is so dedicated to his diet that he reportedly keeps his own personal chef on tour with him to maintain it while he’s away from home.
