Maye Musk 76 shows off fit figure and praises diet she began after divorce

Maye Musk, the 76-year-old mother of Tesla founder and X CEO Elon Musk, has long been admired for her fit figure and timeless beauty. Recently, she revealed that her dedication to a flexitarian diet has been a key factor in maintaining her health and physique. The flexitarian diet emphasizes plant-based foods while allowing meat consumption in moderation.

Musk’s journey with this diet began out of necessity. After her divorce in 1979, she found herself unable to afford meat, fish, or chicken. “When I got divorced, I couldn’t afford to buy meat, fish, or chicken,” Musk shared with Fox Digital. “So I had to feed my children bean stew. And as they say, they did get tired of my bean stew. But I did vary from it. I used different beans and lots of vegetables.”

She also made sure her children had fruits in season, though organic options were out of reach financially. “You [also] get whole wheat bread … in South Africa, brown bread was subsidized by the government. White bread was more expensive, so we only ate brown bread. And of course, it kept us all in good health. And then we had cereal and fruit in the morning,” she added.

Musk recounted a humorous memory of her son Elon wanting Coco Puffs, but all she had was Raisin Bran. “Well, the thing is, Coco Pops were more expensive and less nutritious, so that’s what [my children] got,” Musk laughed. “And if they complained, I didn’t listen. And then [my daughter] Tosca said she always wanted apricot jam, but that was more expensive than strawberry jam. So she didn’t get that either. And then [my son] Kimbal said, ‘I left home to go to university because I was tired of your bean stew.’”

Despite her aversion to cooking intricate meals, Musk has embraced a primarily vegetarian lifestyle. “Some people just don’t like cooking and that’s OK. You just eat the foods you like. I eat mainly vegetarian at home,” she said. Her fridge is always stocked with fruits and vegetables, which she believes are essential for maintaining health as one ages. “I eat very well,” she explained. “To me, to keep a body healthy and skin glowing, you have to eat well. That keeps me in good health… [When my children visit], we usually send out for meat, fish, or chicken. Tosca and Kimbal really love cooking. So I always have delicious home-cooked meals.”

Musk also admitted to having a sweet tooth but has learned to manage it. “It would usually be something sweet because I love desserts,” she confessed. “But I have managed it. I used to overdo it… I was the first plus-size model in South Africa in my 30s because I’d been through stressful times.”

Her commitment to her diet and lifestyle has clearly paid off. In a recent Instagram post, Musk showcased her fit figure while vacationing on Ios Island in Greece. One picture shows her lying on a raft while floating in a pool, and another captures her lounging in a black bathing suit next to a pool. “Am I having fun on Ios Island or what,” Musk captioned the post.

Musk’s story is a testament to the power of resilience and adaptability. Her ability to turn a challenging situation into a lifelong commitment to health and wellness is truly inspiring. Her journey with the flexitarian diet not only helped her stay fit but also instilled healthy eating habits in her children, who have gone on to achieve remarkable success in their respective fields.

As a model for over 50 years, Musk has always been in the public eye, but her recent revelations about her diet and lifestyle offer a more personal glimpse into her life. Her story serves as a reminder that healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Simple, nutritious foods can provide the foundation for a healthy and fulfilling life.

Musk’s approach to diet and wellness is practical and accessible. She emphasizes the importance of eating what you like and what you can afford, rather than striving for perfection. Her story encourages others to find their own balance and make the best choices for their health and well-being.

In a world where diet trends and health fads come and go, Musk’s commitment to a balanced, plant-based diet stands out. Her story is a powerful example of how simple, consistent choices can lead to long-term health and vitality. As she continues to inspire others with her journey, Musk remains a shining example of grace, resilience, and the enduring power of healthy living.
