When you add up all the evidence, the key factors to a longer lifespan include a commonsense approach to eating and activity. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Choose lean proteins like fish, particularly fatty fish. And ease up on sugar and processed foods. For activity, pursue a mix of resistance exercise and aerobic pursuits like walking around the block.
