Kane Tanaka, the world’s oldest woman, loves to drink soft drinks, coffee and eat chocolate.

Tanaka was recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest person in March 2019. Grandpa passed away on April 25, 119 years old. The most common question experts often ask people with long lives is what their daily menu includes.

In the interview with Japan National Tourism OrganizationTanaka said her favorite drinks are carbonated soft drinks (especially Coca-Cola), in addition to coffee and chocolate.

During the ceremony to certify Tanaka as the oldest woman in the world, Guinness World Records presented her with a box of chocolates. She immediately opened it, enjoyed it immediately and said she wanted to eat up to 100 chocolates.

However, Tanaka does not encourage those around him to eat too many sweets. According to her, the most important thing is to do what you love.

“I eat what I like, do what I want, enjoy every little thing every day,” she said.

Grandma Tanaka also loves playing Othello, solving puzzles and communicating with people around her. The old woman regularly beat nursing home staff in mind games.

The sense of community, integration and care for the elderly in the family and society keeps the stress level of the elderly at a low level.

Besides, the Japanese do not overeat in every meal. They regularly practice the “Hara Hachi Bu” method, which means eating until about 80% full.
