Mehmet Oz: To me, healthy means you got the vitality that you had at the top of your life when you’re most happiest. For many people that’s around age 18 to 20, but if you can recapture that energy and that bounciness that you have in life, that’s being well, that’s being healthy.
To be healthy is to have as an adult the vitality that came naturally in youth.
