If you feel you are then explain why.
The biggest factor imo is genes. But that doesn't mean we can't do what is necessary to mitigate those. I work out, watch my diet, and practice meditation all in harmony to keep my blood pressure down.
Genetics, lifestyle, fate...not necessarily in that order.
I don't think I'm especially healthy, but I look marvelous.
And it doesn't really matter if you feel like hell just so long as you look marvelous while you're suffering.
I selected exercise even though selecting healthy long living parents is probably key. Never been sick in my life, several physical injuries, football, cycling, fighting, take vitamins frequently, road a bike to work over 20 years, have done marathons and cycled over 200 miles in a day, told I look 10 to 20 years younger and now grandpa. I think I also handle stress well and can manage complex stressful situations. How's that for bragging. lol. Look at Jack Lalanne he is amazing for his age.
Portion control, vegetables, fruits and exercise daily.
Crap, I can't remember which one I picked.
I said exercise. I could eat Tacobell all week and as long as I run for 30+ min a day I'll feel like a champ. I'll crap like a pig though, lol.
Thanks for that...having dealt with pig crap it's a lovely little jolt.
What makes people healthy is a decent Health Service. Go get one
No one in my family has ever needed one.
