What the Expert Says:

Dear Stillhope:

If I knew the answer to this question, I would be on Oprah!  As best we understand, long life has to do with genes i.e. your family's history of long life.  It has to do with healthy living as in no smoking, exercise and a plant based diet. We are learning that people who live long lives keep routines that vary little.  We also understand that they sleep well (8-9 hours a night) and that their diet is small amounts of food.

Good luck and keep trying.
