But First, Coffee

Marcille can't start the day without coffee. "The first thing that I eat or drink, outside of brushing my teeth and mouthwash, is coffee," she says. "I don't eat breakfast. . .I drink breakfast, it's coffee. There's creamer in there, there's extra coffee, and then I go get more coffee."


Rib Eye For Lunch

Marcille enjoys a big lunch as her mean meal for the day. "Lunch looks like the average person's Thanksgiving dinner," she says. "That's usually my largest meal. I will go to Houston's [restaurant] and have a whole Hawaiian rib eye at 11:15 in the morning. I open up with the restaurant. [I] try to get some greens on there, you know. As long as there's some bacon in the salad we can get that down at lunch."


She Loves To Run

Marcille loves going for a run as part of her workout routine. "Many dedicated long-term runners do not run because they want to live longer," says cardiologist Dr. Aaron Baggish. "They run because it makes them feel better on a daily basis. There is a mood-elevating, quality-of-life benefit that comes from being a regular exerciser."


Small Dinner

Marcille enjoys a light dinner of rice or maybe a sandwich. "It's perfectly healthy to keep our dinners light and simple — in fact there is even some evidence that eating smaller evening meals can help us maintain a healthier weight and reduce our risks of diseases like type 2 diabetes," says Sandro Demaio, PhD.


Wine In the Evening

Marcille loves to wind down at night with some wine. "I do have a glass of wine," she says. "Glasses. I don't like to waste wine. If I open you, I'm drinking you… Between my CBD oil, my water, and all of my meals, that's how I stay [happy]!" "Any links between red wine and fewer heart attacks aren't completely understood. But part of the benefit might be that antioxidants in red wine may increase levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) and protect against cholesterol buildup," says the Mayo Clinic.
