FRISCO, TEXAS: The 77-year-old Dolly Parton doesn’t look her age at all. As she rocked the stage while attending the Dolly! All Access Pop-Up Store preview at The Star in Frisco, the ‘I Will Always Love You’ star flaunted her slim waist and toned legs in a glitzy black form fitting costume with high pointed heeled shoes. While her hair was coiffed in her signature style, she went with her glamorous diva persona for makeup. However, the the most significant thing of her outing was her slender figure which she has maintained immaculately.

In 2001, the country legend told the Wall Street Journal that she is not a stickler for going to the gym to sweat it off. However, her secret to maintaining a svelte figure is doing regular exercises. The country music legend, though, revealed she is very particular with whom she exercises as she said, “I'm not big on going to the gym … and I'm particular about who I sweat with.”

Parton revealed she got creative about her exercise routine as, “I create my own rejoicing exercises,” before explaining, “I grew up in the Pentecostal church where we used to do a lot of shouting and jumping around.” She further added that exercising while praying also helped her a lot as the ‘9 to 5’ singer said, “I keep my motor running in the mornings when I just shout through the house praising the Lord,” reports Daily Mail.

Describing her exercises to be “easy” and “joyful”, she said, “Do something for a reason rather than yourself,” before adding, “That's the extent of my exercise.”

‘I use Folgers for my cup of ambition’

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s diet is also hugely responsible for her slender body at the age of 77. While currently she is on a low carb plan, she revealed to Wall Street Journal in 2021 that she often started her day with a cup of Folgers, "I use Folgers for my cup of ambition. I like quite a bit of cream, so it's just a little more than tan. A cup and a half will do me all day," reports Eating Well.

She also famously swears by homemade egg salad, as she said, "I usually try to keep some homemade egg salad around because I like to have something quick and easy," before giving a sneak peak of her weekly dose of nutrients, "Through the week I'll eat things like egg salad on toast with tomato, and sometimes I'll have a bagel with cream cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes." However, she strictly believes in portion control as she said, "I just watch moderation for the most part.”

While talking to Parade, she also opened up about her weekend lunch as she prefers to enjoy the lazy day with some cornbread. The ‘Academy of Country Music' winner said, "I try to stay on my low-carb diet during the week, and then when I know I have a day off, I say, 'Make me a pan of cornbread.'"

‘I don't like pretty food’

Even if Parton is a person who believes in moderation while eating, she is by no means sticking to just one cuisine as she has her favorites from across the world. In an interview to New York Times, she revealed, "I love Indian, Italian and Mexican food. And if it's a romantic kind of evening, I like a good French restaurant," before talking about her love for simplicity, "I don't like pretty food. The way I see it, if the food's too pretty, it ain't too good."
