If there is a park near by, walk over and do some stretching exercises in the fresh air. Youll still have plenty of time to eat. Just brown bag a sandwich, an apple and a bottle of water. Use the Stairs Whenever the opportunity arises, take the stairs instead of the elevator. If you work in a high rise it would not be practical to walk up 10 flights of stairs, but you can walk 3 flights and use the elevator for the rest.

You did listen in those undergrad nutrition classes.) What may surprise you, however, is that many of the claims and numbers — “low-fat,” “no fat,” “sugar-free” — can woo you towards products that aren’t necessarily as healthy as they sound. Case in point: “Low-fat” usually means less than 30 percent of your daily calories from fat, however, the same product might be jam-packed with sugar and additives to make up for, you know, the cardboard taste.

My advice My advice for a healthy life is to get out and be active: Get back on a bicycle, jump in the pool, battle the ocean waves, pick up a paddle, jog through the park, or pick up a racket. Think of it as investing in what I call a “health pension” — investment in your health now for the years ahead. It could be the best thing you can do for your future. And take your friends and family. Enjoy staying healthy and live longer by being active. The power of exercise is that it can turn on YOUR genes-genes that help defend against disease and the aging process. Remember: Exercise is medicinal.
