Five key criteria for a healthy lifestyle:

Healthy diet
Calculated and rated based on the reported intake of healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, healthy fats, and omega-3 fatty acids, and unhealthy foods like red and processed meats, sugar-sweetened beverages, trans fat, and sodium.

Healthy physical activity level
Measured as at least 30 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous activity daily.

Healthy body weight
Defined as a normal body mass index [BMI], which is between 18.5 and 24.9.

Smoking
Well, there is no healthy amount of smoking. ‘Healthy’ here meant never having smoked.

Moderate alcohol intake
Measured as between 5 and 15 grams per day for women, and 5 to 30 grams per day for men. Generally, one drink contains about 14 grams of pure alcohol. That’s 12 ounces of regular beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of distilled spirits.
