Ernestine Shepherd talks to The Independent about the particularly ordinary route which led her into fitness, why she was motivated to go for a world record title and just what she eats every day. She has washboard abs, impressive biceps and lives on three to four hours sleep ever night. Spurred into fitness with her sister Velvet at the age of 56, she previously had never done any exercise having been exempt from school physical education lessons as a child because of an injury she sustained in a car accident. The Independent spoke to a snowed-in Ernie on the east coast of the US on the phone which finally connected after the theme tune from Rocky blared down the line for a minute or so. In addition to her exhausting-sounding fitness routine, Ernie eats five to six small meals a day. These often include oatmeal, a handful of walnuts and crushed pineapple for breakfast, a baked white potato, chicken and asparagus as one of her lunches followed by brown rice, turkey and string beans and then sweet potato, tuna and spinach. These meals are also interspersed with 8oz glasses of liquid egg whites.
