1 The day starts with three glasses of warm water and a lovely cup of coffee without sugar. Coconut water and an apple and whatever other fruit there is makes for breakfast. I am careful with what I eat (eliminating food with added sugar). I am fine if I eat in moderation and stop eating when I am still a little hungry. More importantly, I eat only when I am hungry. This is the key to my health and fitness.

2 Exercise is sporadic and includes walking and light stretching. I try to take the stairs instead of the elevator up six floors.

3 I have never smoked and gave up alcohol 14 years ago (at age 43) to enable me to stay sharp and competitive on the table. I stopped playing four years ago, but found that my body without alcohol tends to be fitter than with it, so I am continuing life without it.

4 My day ends with green tea and reading or music, including jazz and Bollywood songs. That said, I believe one needs “grace” and “blessings” to remain fit.

5 My general fitness advice is avoid smoking and drinking, control what you eat, drink lots of water and avoid sugar. And, walk, walk, walk. Or if you are young, then run, run, run!
