Are you healthy? The question is so common but important. There is no alternative of good health. Eat variety of good foods for maintaining healthy weight. Take fruits and vegetables which has lot of water content like watermelons, cucumbers and white pumpkin.. Adopt some real physical activity for getting fitness. Never skip your physical activity. What's your suggestions for making body and mind healthy??

I agree with you.. very important aspect in life. The only way you can be successful in doing this is by placing as a top priority In life, it is just too easy to let slip. Its important for yourself, your spouse, your family and our society.

Great post.

Still hunting elk alone in the high country at 70. You don't do that if you're a couch potato. ;)

I used to manage a gym, so i've lived healthy all my life.

I wish I was a more healthy guy. It seems I always think about what I eat but in the end I eat what I like and what I like is not the best or healthy. I get plenty of exercise at work and have a plan about a month before I start hunting to get in better shape.

My hat's off to you Old Hunter and everyone else still out there amoung them at 70! You don't just warm up for the hunt a month ahead of time in order to be able to actively participate in these out door adventures when you are old. It has to come from a lifetime of committment - i.e. living the healthy active lifestyle over a period of years. No pain, no gain! I too, am in my 70's and I don't intend to let it slow me down very much. Here is self taken picture of me on my way in to my bivy camp in Nevada last fall.

If I could keep out of the scotch collection, I'd be much healthier. I have cut out craft beer, too delicious and too many calories.

It's a matter of taking a different outlook on food. I don't look at food as a form of enjoyment. I look at it as fuel for my body. I'd no more put bad fuel in my body than I would in my Jeep.

Commitments are usually not easy.

What you eat is, in my experience, more important than how much you eat. If you eat better food, your appetite will regulate itself.

Europeans eat on a daily basis what many Americans consider luxuries and in many cases are considered to be "bad", but Europeans don't have the health problems, including the obesity problems, that are endemic in America.

A lot of it can be tied to excess processing of food, which includes processing to give a longer shelf life, processing to modify it's taste, usually through the addition of sugar and/or salt and even processing the food in a way that will cause it to make you hungry more frequently, hence causing you to buy more of that food.

I plan (and hope to follow through) on being in my 70s and still being out hunting. Old Hunter and Mt-Mike, guys like you give me something to look forward to, so thank you.
