Exercise-wise: I commute to work by bike 3 or 4 times a week which adds
up to 6-8 hours a week of cycling. On the other days walking between
stations adds up to an hour on foot a day. No strength training though,
so my upper body is as weak as a kitten.
Diet: Nothing specifically healthy. Coffee and muesli for breakfast,
sandwich or a salad for lunch and x with starch (pasta, rice, potato) in
the evening. Try to have two or three meat free days every week and I
cook pretty much everything myself so I know it hasn't been salted or
sugared more than necessary.
I drink a lot less now than when I was at university, usually a couple
of beers or wine with food at the weekends with an occasional excessive
session on a Friday evening.
The upshot of all that is that my weight's steady or slightly decreasing
without having to really watch what I eat at all.
No vitamins or other supplements any more. I used to take a
mulitvitamin every day but I haven't noticed any difference since I stopped.
