Just curious! Maybe I want to feel I have company in my sort of half healthy/half unhealthy choices! But congratulate anyone who is living my dream of doing what's good for the mind and body!

1. Do you eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day?

2. Do you take vitamin(s)?

3. Any other type of nutritional supplement?

4. Do you get a physical and follow-up on any doctor recommendations?

5. Do you limit sodium, fat, calories, caffeine, or sugar?

6. Do you use artificial sweeteners?

7. Do you read food labels and watch things like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives?

8. Do you exercise weekly?

9. How much sleep do you try to get each night? Do you sleep well? Have to get up during the night very often?

10. Are you energetic?

11. Are you a vegetarian, eat organic, grow any of your own food, etc.?

12. Would you want to live to be 100?

13. (maybe TMI--don't have to answer!) Do you have any chronic medical condition or take maintenance meds? Do you consider yourself overweight? What is your age range--20s, 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s?

1. Do you eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day? Maybe 2 or 3

2. Do you take vitamin(s)? I have a hard time swallowing them and need to get around to getting a chewable or something.

3. Any other type of nutritional supplement? I was taking Glucosamine for a while, stopped, and haven't noticed any difference.

4. Do you get a physical and follow-up on any doctor recommendations? Yes, I do, and fortunately my good & bad cholesterol and all the other tests were good. Except I'm low on vitamin D. I just bought a 'petite' calcium + D this weekend and will try it.

5. Do you limit sodium, fat, calories, or sugar?I have high blood pressure and try to limit sodium and try to choose healthy selections at restaurants, but am afraid I get too much salt when we eat out. I wish all restaurant menus had nutrition info. Too much sugar every day is my addiction and main health concern.

6. Do you use artificial sweeteners? Only diet soda and try to limit myself to one can per day. Just heard that news that it's not good for the heart. I'm sad.

7. Do you read food labels and watch things like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives? I do.

8. Do you exercise weekly? nope, not at all

9. How much sleep do you try to get each night? about 7 hours, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. I get up about twice each night. About once a week I don't sleep very well. I'm trying to drink milk a few hours before bed.

10. Are you energetic? I'm so tired by the end of the week I sometimes am nodding during our Friday after school staff meeting

11. Are you a vegetarian, eat organic, grow any of your own food, etc.? Maybe when I'm retired! I don't eat red meat very often.

12. Would you want to live to be 100? Absolutely not!

13. (maybe TMI--don't have to answer!) Do you have any chronic medical condition or take maintenance meds? Do you consider yourself overweight? What is your age range--20s, 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s? I take meds for high blood pressure and osteoporosis and I'm about 10 pounds overweight--mostly in my belly. Lower back pain and joint pain in my hands. The swallowing problem. I am 60.

1. Do you eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day?
Probably most days. A "serving" is pretty small.

2. Do you take vitamin(s)?
Just Vitamin D, when I remember (most days in the winter. Don't need it in summer.)

3. Any other type of nutritional supplement?
Um, not unless Clif bars count, but they're fortified with all kinds of things.

4. Do you get a physical and follow-up on any doctor recommendations?
I try to. My insurance coverage has been spotty for the last several years, but I try to take advantage when I've got it.

5. Do you limit sodium, fat, calories, or sugar?
I DO NOT count any of the above. I firmly believe that the damage that doing so would do to my mental health far outweighs the benefits it might cause for my physical health. That said, I am conscious of what I eat, in a general kind of way.

6. Do you use artificial sweeteners?
I'm down to 2 packets of Splenda a day now (usually).

7. Do you read food labels and watch things like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives?
Read labels obsessively. I don't completely eliminate HFCS or chemicals, but I don't eat many of them, either. I mostly cook for myself from whole foods, so it's not an issue.

8. Do you exercise weekly?
I've slacked off about that. I'm getting better about it again, though...trying to at least walk several times a week.

9. How much sleep do you try to get each night?
Ha! This is probably my worst health habit. It's not uncommon for me to get only 4-5 hours on a weeknight.

10. Are you energetic?
Sometimes. The sleep thing kind of messes with that, though.

11. Are you a vegetarian, eat organic, grow any of your own food, etc.?
I am vegan, and I eat organic when I can find cheap organic foods.

12. Would you want to live to be 100?
Not especially.

13. (maybe TMI--don't have to answer!) Do you have any chronic medical condition or take maintenance meds? Do you consider yourself overweight? What is your age range--20s, 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s?
Mid-30's, no chronic conditions, a bit overweight and working on changing that.

I have severe osteo arthritis and fibromyalgia and take meds for those. I'm in my 40's and about 10 pounds overweight. I will lose it and have already lost 10 pounds since October.

So happy to hear you've fought cancer and won!

1. Do you eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day?
Yes. I like both, and I probably get more, especially of veggies.

2. Do you take vitamin(s)?
I take a multi-vitamin.

3. Any other type of nutritional supplement?
Nope.

4. Do you get a physical and follow-up on any doctor recommendations?
Yes. I'm all for preventive care.

5. Do you limit sodium, fat, calories, or sugar?
I try, but I fall off the wagon sometimes. I use the food pyramid for guidelines, and I watch portion sizes.

6. Do you use artificial sweeteners?
Sometimes. I like some things that just happen to have artificial sweeteners. I don't specifically purchase them or avoid them.

7. Do you read food labels and watch things like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives?
I don't watch for those things, but I look at labels. I have to watch sulfate/sulfite preservatives. Too much of those causes me to have allergic reactions.

8. Do you exercise weekly?
I'm just now getting back in the routine.

9. How much sleep do you try to get each night? Do you sleep well? Have to get up during the night very often?
I never get more than 4 hours at a stretch. I haven't slept well in a long time. I don't get sleepy until late, and I wake up during the night. I'm nearly always awake when my clock alarms. I usually get up at least once for the bathroom. I've done that my entire life.

10. Are you energetic?
I'm about average, I guess.

11. Are you a vegetarian, eat organic, grow any of your own food, etc.?
I'm not a vegetarian, but I really don't eat much meat. I just don't care for it. Never have. I grow a garden. I know how to can and freeze my own food, but I don't do it. My mom does and shares with me.

12. Would you want to live to be 100?
I wouldn't mind if I were healthy.

13. Do you have any chronic medical condition or take maintenance meds?
Unfortunately, yes. I take six prescription medications and four OTC medications daily, which is actually an improvement. At one point I was taking 16 prescriptions daily. That was a rough couple of years.

Do you consider yourself overweight?
Yes. I'm actually just over the line to "obese". I was on the high side of my normal weight range until I was 30. I got sick that year. First I had to stop my exercise program. Then I had to take medication that ballooned my weight and messed with my metabolism and immune system. I'm feeling better now than I have in awhile, so I'm working on the weight.

What is your age range--20s, 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s?
I'm 40.

1. Do you eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day?
I try, but no, I probably never make it.

2. Do you take vitamin(s)?
Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin D.

3. Any other type of nutritional supplement?
No

4. Do you get a physical and follow-up on any doctor recommendations?
Yes, because I am a transplant recipient -- I am paranoid about the safety factor, so everything gets checked out.

5. Do you limit sodium, fat, calories, caffeine, or sugar?
I never add salt to anything. While I was on dialysis, my sodium was seriously limited and since my transplant, I find I taste salt WAY too much. I try to pay attention to sugar content and caloires, but I am addicted to caffeine.

6. Do you use artificial sweeteners?
Nope.

7. Do you read food labels and watch things like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives?
I do read food labels, but more with an eye for cholestrol than anything else.

8. Do you exercise weekly?
I exercise about 45 min./day Monday through Wednesday no matter what. Thursday only if I don't have night class. Friday - Sunday only if I don't have to travel for my second job.

9. How much sleep do you try to get each night? Do you sleep well? Have to get up during the night very often?
I probably get 6-7 hours each night. I do not get up in the night. However, I DO tend to have trouble staying asleep, which I'm told is a side effect of all my medications.

10. Are you energetic?
Yes. And a morning person.

11. Are you a vegetarian, eat organic, grow any of your own food, etc.?
I respect vegetarians, because I could never be one. I am 100% carnivore. :-) However, I love to garden and eat lots of what we grow.

12. Would you want to live to be 100?
I'm not sure -- that depends on my health and the world's health -- seems like the place is sort of a mess right now.

13. (maybe TMI--don't have to answer!) Do you have any chronic medical condition or take maintenance meds? Do you consider yourself overweight? What is your age range--20s, 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s?
I am in my 20's.
I am overweight, but I also take maintenance medicine that causes that. I try to exercise to offset it, but for the most part, that just means my weight doesn't get worse!
Since my transplant, I am on 2 immunosuppressants and prednisone (which is where the extra weight comes from!)

Slightly different "rules", but...

1. Do you eat 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day?
I am "required" to do 2 fruit, 2 veg, and 2 dairy a day. I follow those rules.

2. Do you take vitamin(s)?
Yep, 2 multivitamins a day.

3. Any other type of nutritional supplement?
I also take iron, calcium citrate, B12, and D. When I get my March bloodwork done I may have more.

4. Do you get a physical and follow-up on any doctor recommendations?
Right now, I go to 1 doctor every 3 months. My PCP I see when I need to. Evidently I'm due for a physical, which I am dreading, but will get it in when I have time.

5. Do you limit sodium, fat, calories, caffeine, or sugar?
My daily calorie goal is 1,800. Some days I get there, most days I don't. I don't do caffeine and I closely monitor fat and sugar.

6. Do you use artificial sweeteners?
Since I can't do sugar, yep. More than I'd like.

7. Do you read food labels and watch things like high fructose corn syrup or preservatives?
Yes! I never used to do this and now I'm really aware of what goes into my food. I've found fresh foods are the best for me.

8. Do you exercise weekly?
I try to exercise daily. 5 days a week, minimum. If I "take a day off" it's hard to get going again.

9. How much sleep do you try to get each night? Do you sleep well? Have to get up during the night very often?
6-7 hours. I usually sleep soundly, but I'm always tired in the morning until I get up and get moving. I don't usually get up at night unless I've waited too long to drink my water and then I usually get up once.

10. Are you energetic?
Getting more so every day.

11. Are you a vegetarian, eat organic, grow any of your own food, etc.?
No, not really, and no - I kill things. lol I do work with my students in our school garden though. If they plant it, it grows.

12. Would you want to live to be 100?
Depends on who's living with me.

13. (maybe TMI--don't have to answer!) Do you have any chronic medical condition or take maintenance meds? Do you consider yourself overweight? What is your age range--20s, 30s, 40s, 50, 60s, 70s?
I used to take 5 maintenance meds a day. Now I take 0. I'm overweight, but it's going down every day. Turned 30 this year.
