Mine:
(as of this writing, I am an age 40 yr. old male, 6'1", 198 pounds-- about 8 pounds overweight by government standards, though more like a good 20 pounds from my ideal, weight loss is not easy for most people!)
 
1. Good lifestyle with plenty of time with family and friends, brief weekly "recharge" moments of solitude, lots of hearty laughter and purposeful living, time for interests and hobbies (hey, like what I'm doing this very moment, pursuing life extension), physical and mental challenges, definitely no smoking, no concentrated fumes, no sugary donuts, virtually zero junk food, no caramel, no trans fat, etc.  ~3 alcoholic drinks per week/ and less than 3 per day,  alcohol is strictly a mild relaxant beverage only, NEVER, ever allow myself anything close to drunkenness.

2. Exercise regularly: walk/run/swim/bicycle. . . walk/run 4 miles everyday (have an accurate pedometer watch that keeps track) plus make sure to do a minimum of 10 pull-ups per week (I know, pathetic, that'll increase) And make sure to do several hard, 100% effort sprints of 100 meters every single week --though readily give myself a few extra days if not feeling up to it.

3. Supplements: my modified version of LEF's "Daily Dozen" I adjust with both LEF brand and other brands I have access to deeply discounted supplements from another source, but would prefer LEF on most everything, planning on upgrading to more LEF in the future.  follow pretty much every recommendation LEF publishes, and some from others. . . additionally taking strontium, lithium, and theanine, which I don't think LEF generally recommends to all.    Also, I do a "party" once-per month using niacin and bring-on the red-skin and itching for the fun.  Here's that Daily Dozen: 
 http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Recommended-Supplements/index.htm

4. Eating: do a lot of gourmet cooking, grow lots of my own veggies in the growing season, have occasional eggs from my own happy free-range hens here at our little farm in the city, have as many walnuts as I care to eat from my 70-yr. old tree.  My family is vegetarian though I eat occasional fish, especially raw sushi.  Also eat fermented foods like natto regularly-- hey, you can actually get used to the taste of that foul stuff and after a while it's not so bad.  Drink about 6 to 8 cups of coffee, 2 cups of yerba matte, 2 cups of green tea daily --some of that is water-processed decaf so I'm not actually buzzed all day.
  
5. Fasting. I eat 4 or 5 sometimes even 6 meals per day during an 8-10 hour window, and fast during a minimum 14 to 16 hour the rest of each day.  Then do a 24 hour fast once every month or so.  And have, in the past, done long, extended fasts which I'm trying to research and understand better, have future plans of returning to do more, but want to be wise about it too, strongly disagree with extended "water-fasting". . .  I'll say more on that some other time.

6. Blood donation:  I have been donating whole blood regularly for about 11 years now, my ferritin levels haven't been above 51 for at least the past several years. I do "double reds" centrifuged red cell donation when I go.   Recently,  I decided to throw-in a few visits to the plasma donation center too. . . not sure if I'm even on the right track with this, but ever since reading about that research on mouse B lymphocyte cell ablation to boost an aging immune system, and the possible life extension benefits from reducing B lymphocytes, I figured what the heck, can't be too bad even if I'm wrong. . . the plasma center pays me $80 for coming in --they like my vitals and pay me above the going rate, and every penny they give me goes straight to LEF, and I always bring my latest issue of LEF whenever I go a donating, helps pass the time and actually makes it an invigorating experience.  Loads of fun !  
 
7. Sleep, I try to always sleep on the cool side, keeping my room about 60 degrees year round, and just enough blankets to avoid chill or shivering which disrupts sleep. Definitely dark and here I supplement with 300 mcg of melatonin per night.  I usually keep all electronic use and bright screens from my eyes in the hour before bed, but definitely breaking that rule tonight as I sit here typing into the time I should be going to bed, uh oh! but wait, one more thing. . .

8.  I'm up for a bit of self-experimentation, within reason.  Yes, I understand the paradox of bringing a bit of risk into my quest for life extension, but hey, living is also about adventure and exploration and human understanding. . .  I have been known to try the occasional unproven therapy just to see how it works on me: coffee enemas, polar bear plunges in icy water, earthing therapy using grounding rods and electrolyte baths, sensory-deprivation, underwater hydrogen therapy. . . and certain scientifically valid therapies that had to have involved medical tourism given certain laws that I'll leave-off mentioning any further in this forum, stuff.

Coffee enemas? Think I'll pass on that one.

Forget 100+ I'm interested in being around much, much longer than that.

Currently there is little that one can take that increases lifespan, just health span.    Spndler, out of UCR has run hundreds of lifespan tests on mice using most every supplement known, and  none except Metformin and Acarbose extended lifespan, and those only slightly. 
Calorie restriction remains the only proven way to actually extend lifespan.   
C60 olive oil remains a wild card, and the only thing known that even has a chance to extend lifespan by more than 5-10%.   
I'm intrigued by nicotinamide riboside as I've previously written for its ability to increase NAD+.  Given that Metformin is  repiratory chain , NAD inhibitor, I think it's important that LEF suggest that those that follow their advice to take Metformin, ( as I do ) also take some form of niacin as well.
Hopefully everything else we take will at least square the curve as they say, and allow us to live out are natural lifespan.

Interesting (and scaring) is to look at the numbers requiring focusing on prevention and  health span:

"... Ten to twelve percent of all United States health care spending, and 27% of all Medicare spending, is devoted to treatment of people in their last year of life.1

Up to 30% of Medicare spending for people during their last two years of life is unnecessary and does nothing to improve their health.2

In 2003, the cost of treating seven common chronic diseases – cancers, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, stroke, mental, disorders, and pulmonary conditions – equaled $277 billion.3 That same year, these diseases attributed to over $1 trillion of lost productivity due to missed days and lower worker productivity.4

In 2007, the absenteeism rate was 2.3%, costing some large employers $760,000 a year in direct payroll, a number that doesn’t take into account the additional costs of lower employee productivity5 ..."

Well, there used to be a website posted by the journal " Physiological Reviews " that had a table that showed the food preservative BHT [ butylated hydroxytoluene ] did increase the AVERAGE lifespan of mice by 22% to 31%. That link is no longer available. Dr. Denham Harman and other independent of Harman researchers did achieve those results with the antioxidant BHT. In fact with short lived cancer prone mice the results were as much as 50%. The BHT is an extremely well proven free radical and reactive oxygen species scavenger. There used to be a lot of interest in BHT. That interest was effectively put to rest by the HEALTH FOOD advocates who purposely misinterpreted the extensive toxicology reports still available. I am too bored with it all to keep digging up websites about all this. But it is there if you dig for it. This information. No one cares anyway and I have pretty much stopped wasting my time with it. I mention it now and then. The BHT thing.   ...Oscar

oscar2u, BHT is near the top of my list of things to consider adding to my regimen, seems amazing.
I'm especially interested in its apparent potential to defeat cytomegalovirus, as I tested positive for the antibody only just recently where I had remained negative before.   So the idea of ridding this virus before it has a few years to wear-down T-cell memories sounds like a definite good idea, but still want to make sure I am fully aware of what it is going to do exactly before going that route.

mizugori, yes I think I'll pass on any further coffee enemas, but it's proponents seemed so sincerely devoted to it's purported benefits, and the risk seemed sufficiently small to try it once.  Like I said, I'm up for experimenting a bit, I don't mind. . .  I'd really like to live longer than 100 too, but to be healthy like a 40 year old well into age 100 is a worthy goal, and part of anything bigger anyways.

In addition to many of the above healthy habits, I make my own sauerkraut and eat it almost daily (raw). I really love my home made tomato juice (grown and canned by me). Finally, I buy green coffee beans (arabica) and roast them daily. I love fresh roasted coffee!

These three things take extra time but I enjoy doing these things. The rewards are non-physical AND nutritional. Do they contribute to longevity? I think so.
