Ensminger is slender and as fit as he “could possibly expect to be at this age.” He uses hearing aids, but his health is good, with cholesterol, triglyceride and blood pressure numbers that make his doctor happy.
He rides a stationary bicycle every day, and every other day, he lifts 4-pound weights. And he eats well, though sometimes not as much as his granddaughter Kerri Sofield, a stickler for health, would like. He swears he’s stayed healthy this long because he and Kae ate a lot of sauerkraut. He cooks for himself often, mainly vegetables. He never adds salt to food and doesn’t put sugar on anything.
