The author utilizes big data based on lifestyle details to quantitatively compare the differences between two periods: pre-COVID-19, from 5/5/2018 to 1/18/2020, and COVID-19, from 1/19/2020 to8/29/2020. The “Comparison of 6 lifestyle categories during 2 periods” is the most important and conclusive chart because it shows the direct comparison of lifestyle category scores using bar charts. The first observation is that all scores are below the break-even line of 73.5% which means healthy lifestyle has been maintained during these two periods. The second observation is that, while exercise and stress categories have the same scores, all of the other four lifestyle categories (water intake, sleep, food/meal, and daily life routine) have lower scores during COVID-19 compared to the scores of pre-COVID-19. The COVID-19 virus is the worst epidemic in recent human history in terms of its spreading speed, fatality number, and emotional impact on the world population. People belonging to the “vulnerable” groups, such as the elderly with medical history or existing chronic diseases and complications, require special consideration to their health conditions as well as lifestyle management program during this period. However, the author, who is 73-year-old, achieved even better results on his diabetes conditions and overall health control in terms of weight, blood pressure, glucose, and HbA1C values. The knowledge and experience he acquired in the past 10 years of medical research and his developed mathematical metabolism model, especially the portion of lifestyle management program, have assisted him in many ways. More importantly, the quiet, stable, and undisturbed lifestyle during this quarantined period contributes to his better medical conditions control and lower lifestyle performance values. In fact, he has turned the COVID-19 crisis into his health advantage
