The purpose of this study was to explore the retired generals' health promoting lifestyle. A cross-sectional study design was used and data was collected by mailed questionnaires. The sample of this study was 937 retired generals after their routinely health check-up in a medical center. A health-promoting lifestyle scale was used as the research instruments. Factor analysis was used for data analysis. The important findings were as the followings: (1) Totally 730 subjects' data were completed, the mean age of retired generals was 73.4 years old in this study; (2) The self-reported top 3 lifestyle items were "eat breakfast", "eat 3 regular meals a day", "be enthusiastic and optimistic about life", and the bottom 3 ones were "attend educational programs on improving the environment in while I live", "check my pulse rate when exercising", "attend educational programs on personal health care"; (3) Seven factors were extracted and named from the health-promoting lifestyle scale, including self-actualization, health-counseling, stress management, nutrition, health-responsibility, inter-personal support, and exercise. These results could show a model for general population and also provide a good reference and recommendation for health policy making.
