Elton recently appeared on Troy Deeney‘s podcast and among the topics he discussed was his health.
He estimated he’s walked over 40 miles in his swimming pool over the last year and believes he’s ”the fittest I’ve been in a long time.”
Elton admitted that he’s always struggled with his weight, saying he ”goes up and down like a bloody yo-yo.” But there’s no point in complaining, the singer says. ”It’s just starting the process of having a sit down with a doctor or a nutritionist . . . and someone saying, ‘How do I approach this? How do I do it?’ And I’ve had a lot of help in that.”
Since he is 74 years old with type B diabetes, Elton is focused on his health because he wants to be around as long as possible for his two sons.
