    running a minimum of 1 mile a day 5 days a week
    Lifting 5 days a week minimum for 30-60 minutes
    Plexus triplex for gut health (it has helped me so much, I have bad GI issues, and this stuff has releaved majority of my gut issues)
    Lots of water.
    less TV
    quit working so much, working just 1 job and covering only occasionally at 2nd job instead of working some 14 hour days, and 60 hours a week

    Minimal red meat
    Plant-based dinners 2-3 times a week (black beans, tofu), otherwise fish, chicken or sometimes shrimp
    Zero cured meats including bacon (I have some health issues)
    A serving of whole-grain carbs at each meal
    Fresh fruit for snacks as much as possible (this does not always happen!)
    Very limited alcohol (special occasions or a glass of wine once or twice a month with dinner)
    No-holds-barred dinner splurges on special occasions (alcohol, red meat, cheese, decadent desserts, whatever I want...special occasions are maybe 6 times a year)
    Eat a good source of protein at each meal
    Exercise (hiking, bought a spin bike and a step for home, home-based weight workouts)
    Limit news intake

    Nothing special. Just being mindful of my eating habits and portions, always trying to eat nutritious food with lots of vegetables, fruit for desert instead of pastry or sweets, cooking mostly at home (no much choice in the matter with COVID around...), very little alcohol, if any. Moving around as much as possible in the house (increasing my NEAT), walking everyday, if possible, and doing calisthenic at home with light weights.

    I don't track calories or wt. and log food in a consistent/frequent manner, but after being in maintenance for 10 years, what ever I do seems to be working.

    I make good quality sleep a major priority in my life. 8 hours minimum, no matter what.
