Here’s what the study recommends you do:
• Eat a healthy diet
• Exercise 30 minutes or more a day
• Maintain a healthy weight (Specifically, a body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9 — you can find yours here.)
• Don’t drink too much alcohol (No more than one 5 oz. glass of wine per day for women, and two glasses for men)
• Don’t smoke (ever)
Men and women who followed the healthiest of lifestyles were 82% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease and 65% less likely to die from cancer compared with people who lived unhealthy lifestyles over the course of 30 years, according to the study, published online in the journal Circulation.
