Redefines the construct “healthy lifestyle” so that the term can be more usefully applied in health promotion and population health, and in the implementation of health-related interventions. Presents a reconstructed perspective of “healthy lifestyle”, evidence for the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions, and promising approaches to foster healthy lifestyles. Suggests that barriers to implementing healthy lifestyles include how the concept has been defined and promoted, and how people, especially those with lower socio-economic status, are enabled to live healthy lives.
