I can't imagine any age when I would have wanted to have a body that looks like hers.

This is great .. but people need to keep things in perspective:

 

1 - Shepherd was a model for years; so if she looks great now .. she's ALWAYS been attractive & had the right body type for modeling.

 

2 - She started working out & training in her mid-50s, so while it's "never too late", you can't expect to start paying attention at 75 & look like her at 76.

 

3 - According to Wikipedia, her regimen is pretty strict; so it may just not be exactly what a lot of people over 65 want their lives or diets to be like:

 

".. Her diet consists of 1,700 calories a day, mostly from boiled egg whites, chicken, vegetables and a liquid egg white drink, and she runs about 80 miles a week; she affirms that she does not take supplements.[4] She is trained by former Mr. Universe Yohnnie Shambourger. .."
